-- Did you know Meryl Streep's son, Henry Wolfe, is a singer-songwriter? And did you know he's coming to New Port Richey on Thursday for a concert at the New Port Richey Library? It's all true, we swear it. Wolfe, above, will perform at 7 p.m. Thursday at the library, 5939 Main St., New Port Richey. It's free, but seating is limited, so call (727) 853-1265 for reservations.
-- Country singer Don Williams has postponed his Feb. 14 concert at the Straz Center, with a date yet to be announced. This is the second major Valentine's Day concert to be postponed in Tampa Bay -- Diana Krall had to push her Feb. 14 show at Ruth Eckerd Hall into March. Why do all these artists have to go breaking our hearts like this?

Fresh on Jan. 6, Sugarhill Gang on Feb. 3, Robert Cray with Shemika Copeland on Feb. 16, Red with Thousand Foot Krutch on Feb. 26, Badfish: A Tribute to Sublime on March 3 and Blue October on March 30.

-- According to this interview, Radiohead have about four or five new songs, and they're planning to play some of them on their upcoming U.S. tour -- which includes a Feb. 29 date at the St. Pete Times Forum. This means Radiohead might actually debut new music in Tampa. TOO EXCITED TO WET PANTS, BUT ONLY JUST BARELY.
