Candy Hearts w/Man Overboard Girlishly droning vocalist Mariel Loveland fronts Candy Hearts, an upbeat melodic indie punk-pop band from the NYC area that released their sophomore full-length, Everything's Amazing & Nobody's Happy, via Kind of Like Records last year. For fans of Lemuria. (Transitions Art Gallery @ Skatepark of Tampa) —LP

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 21
Jun Bustamante & the Helios Jazz Orchestra Folk-jazz singer-songwriter Jun Bustamante lends soulful lead pipes to the swinging arrangements of the 18-piece Helios Jazz Orchestra for their monthly Nova show. (Nova Lounge, St. Petersburg) —LP

Pat Boone A maudlin entertainer who enjoyed his soft pop heyday in the 1950s and ’60s, and is still among Billboard’s top 10 best-selling recording artists of all time. Pat Boone hits town with his intimate one-man show, “50 Years of Hits…50 Million Records,” during which he performs hits and shares memories from his time in showbiz. This early afternoon show is presented as part of the Mid-day Live Series. (Mahaffey Theater, St. Petersburg) —LP

Lucky Tubb & Modern Day Troubadours An evening of rockabilly with deep traditional country roots and honky tonk influences as directed by rich-drawling Lucky Tubb, from Austin. (Skipper’s Smokehouse, Tampa) —LP

Kelly Clarkson Can you believe it’s been 10 years since Kelly Clarkson was crowned the first American Idol? Now a global superstar, she is coming to town for her “Stronger” tour, also the title of her fifth studio album. Stronger debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and first single “Mr. Know It All” hit No. 4 on the iTunes Singles Charts. She’s been everywhere lately — in that Toyota Camry commercial, as a musical guest on SNL, and singing our National Anthem (without screwing it up) at the Super Bowl. Matt Nathanson opens. (Ruth Eckerd Hall, Clearwater) —RF

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 22
Silas Durocher The exceptionally talented singer, songwriter and guitarist has a classical music background and it shows in his instrumentally lush mix of jazz, rock, folk, and funk. Silas Durocher has roots in Florida; he studied theory and composition at New College and spent much of his younger musical years composing pieces and working on projects in the Sunshine State before he re-located to Asheville. Durocher stops in town as part of a stripped-down solo acoustic tour, and I’ve been assured by reliable sources that he’s an amazing performer worthy of a Wednesday evening outing. (Hideaway Café, St. Petersburg) —LP
