GOINGS ON

Looking for something to do? Here's a super calendar, ranging from REO Speedwagon to George Winston.

24 SATURDAY

"AIN'T MISBEHAVIN': It opened as a limited-run cabaret act at the Manhattan Theatre Club in 1978 and was so well-received that it soon moved to Broadway. The show features the music of Thomas "Fats" Waller and reproduces the atmosphere of a Harlem nightclub in the 1930s. 8 p.m. Saturday; 2 p.m. Sunday; Palladium Theater, St. Petersburg; $8-$15. Call (727) 822-3590.

26 MONDAY

REO SPEEDWAGON: Eighties hair band REO Speedwagon scored hit albums with Good Trouble and 1984's Wheels are Turnin', singles such as Keep the Fire Burnin' and the power ballad Can't Fight this Feeling. Kevin Cronin, Neil Doughty and Bruce Hall will deliver a set of classic songs, which still receive radio play. 8 p.m.; Ruth Eckerd Hall, Clearwater; $39.75-$60. Call (727) 791-7400.

27 TUESDAY

GLENN MILLER ORCHESTRA: Glenn Miller's reign as the most popular bandleader in the United States came late in his career and was relatively brief, lasting from 1939 to 1942. But during that time, he dominated popular music, becoming the most enduring figure of the swing era. Forty years after his death, reissues of his recordings have achieved gold record status. 1 p.m., Ruth Eckerd Hall, Clearwater; $15. Call (727) 791-7400.

PETER CINCOTTI: At age 7, jazz pianist and singer Peter Cincotti attracted the attention of Harry Connick Jr., who invited the youngster to sit in during a show at Bally's Grand in Atlantic City, N.J. Now 20, Cincotti has released a self-titled debut album and is embarking on his first U.S. tour. 8 p.m.; Ruth Eckerd Hall, Clearwater; $30-$40. Call (727) 791-7400.
