Wizard Rock The Harry Potter books are done and there is no new Potter movie until November. But here's something cool for all those kids who wish they could get an invitation from Hogwarts: a national tour by four wizard-rock bands (or wrock, to its magical and muggle fans) alighting at 6 tonight at the John Germany Public Library, 900 N Ashley Drive in downtown Tampa. The free concert features the Remus Lupins, Draco and the Malfoys, the Whomping Willows and Justin Finch Fletchley and the Sugar Quills. Get your Gryffindor colors on and wrock on.
Private Lives Noel Coward's farcical play employs wit and humor to examine the conventions of marriage and divorce in this Stageworks Theater production that runs tonight through Sunday in the Shimberg Playhouse at the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center. Show times are 8 tonight to Saturday, 6 p.m. Sunday; 1010 N W.C. MacInnes Place, Tampa; $10. Call 229-7827 or visit tbpac.org.
