it’s his music that has propelled his career for more than 20 years. He flexes his bluesy vocal chords on his 2009 EP, Nawlins Callin’. The album pays tribute to The Big Easy’s musical melting pot, delving into into classical jazz arrangements and offering up organ-driven ballads like “You Don’t Know Me” and the groovin’, horn-studded opener, “Basin Street.” 8 p.m. Tues., May 18, Skipper's Smokehouse, Tampa, $10, skipperssmokehouse.com. —Matthew Spencer


Just in case you forgot, it's the second-to-last episode of LOST ever.

If (like me) you always tear up during Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, be sure to bring an entire box of tissues for tonight's live broadcast of Sons of the Fallen: A Live Tribute to Our Military Heroes.
