What to do this week

Berry good shows The Florida Strawberry Festival continues this week with more A-list performers. Randy Travis takes the stage at 7:30 tonight followed by Travis Tritt on Tuesday, Jeff Foxworthy on Friday and the big one, Jessica Simpson, on Sunday. (Take that however you like.) Get info at But she won't be the only blond pop starlet in town that night. Britney Spears will perform at the St. Pete Times Forum at 8 p.m.

Be sure to bring shrubbery A musical reincarnation of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot features many of the classic bits — the taunting Frenchmen, the killer rabbit, the Finnish folk dancing — but packs in musical numbers and even dancing Laker Girls. The show runs Tuesday through Sunday at the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center in Tampa. Showtimes vary.

Quite a scene The Gasparilla Film Festival moves into Week 2 today with screenings of Possible Lives, a drama about a woman who goes looking for her husband who mysteriously disappeared in Patagonia, but finds more than she bargained for. The screenings are today and Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. at Studio@620 in St. Petersburg. $10. More films continue throughout the week, most at the Channelside theater, with the festival wrapping up on Saturday.

The piano Men The Billy Joel and Elton John tour has got to be a roadie's nightmare, hauling all those pianos from town to town. Ouch. All you have to do is haul your behind down to the St. Pete Times forum on Thursday for the pair's Face 2 Face tour. Tickets start at $54.25.

Spring forward It's nearly that time again. Daylight Saving Time will cost you an hour of sleep as clocks get moved ahead at 2 a.m. Sunday morning. Expect to see some tired faces in church.
