You may not recall the names of your clammy-palmed school dance partners, but if you're a '90s kid, you totally remember these lyrics: "I swear, by the moon and the stars in the sky, I'll be there." The gentle caress of All-4-One's hit songs I Swear and I Can Love You Like That made the virtuous male vocal group a staple of the Gen Y slow dance. Go on and cry those happy tears.

Worldwide Zoo CD Release Party

Details: 9 p.m. Saturday. New World Brewery, 1313 E Eighth Ave., Ybor City. $7. (813) 248-4969.

Not since Mr. Bungle has a group been so wildly and proficiently all over the map. In other words, the members of Tampa's Worldwide Zoo are experts at being musically spaced-out. On Saturday the experimental trio will unveil a new disc of indie, rock, jazz, jam, funk and more, one that doesn't just bend genre rules, but snaps them in half.

Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons

Details: 8 tonight. Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen-Booth Road, Clearwater. Sold out. (727) 791-7400.

While their Tony-winning bio Jersey Boys remains a hot ticket, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons deliver the hits and high notes firsthand. Straight out of the Newark projects, the doo-wop kings with the famous falsetto struck music gold (Sherry, Big Girls Don't Cry, Oh, What a Night) at a time when organized crime may have been the easier career choice. This show is sold out, but you may be able to get tickets to the Sarasota show at 8 p.m. Friday at Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall. $30-$115. Toll-free 1-800-826-9303. vanwezel.org.

Details: 7 p.m. Saturday. Ritz Ybor, 1503 E Seventh Ave., Ybor City. $27.50. (813) 247-2555.

Colorado's Yonder Mountain String Band is kind of like the Widespread Panic of bluegrass music. The group's jam-leaning "newgrass" style is as much Bill Monroe as it is Grateful Dead. And that essentially makes the live show a hoedown with better lighting and effects. The banjo pickers' fast fingers are only at risk of being surpassed by a rapidly growing fan base.
