Coming up

Shelby Lynne The Grammy-winning eclectic musician brings her act to the Tampa Theatre on Thurday at 7:30 p.m., 711 N Franklin St., Tampa; $31-$40.50. Call 274-8981 or visit

Batman Are your kids already bugging you to see Dark Knight this weekend? The dark, violent Batman movie is likely too frightening for the littlest kids, so take them instead to a free showing of the campy 1966 Adam West Batman film. The Beach Theatre gives you an alternative Saturday at 10 a.m. at 315 Corey Ave. in St. Pete Beach. Save money and nightmares, too.
