Tons of new concerts; just in: Buffet. And Sister on tap

Good tickets remain available for “Late Nite Catechism,” the one-Sister show with Mary Zentmyer which opens tonight at the Bayfront Convention Center (400-seat set-up) and continues through Sunday.
Tickets will be available at the door. I’m getting a dose of that old-time religion myself; look for a review either late tonight or early tomorrow depending on how many Our Fathers I’m saddled with.

This just in, at 5:30 p.m.: Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band will play at First Niagara Pavilion near Pittsburgh on June 28. Tickets will go on sale April 2 with an 8-ticket limit at www.ticketmaster.com and also at (800) 745-3000. This is Jimmy’s “Lounging at the Lagoon” tour. Buffett will release a new live CD/DVD, which he recorded in Las Vegas, this summer.

Drake today unveiled dates for his Club Paradise tour which will include stops at First Niagara Pavilion near Pittsburgh (May 26), Blossom Music Center near Cleveland (May 28), and Darien Lake Performing Arts Center near Buffalo (June 8). On-sale dates have yet to be announced.

Train’s “Drive-By” continues to scurry up the chart. It cracked the Top 15 this week on Billboard’s Hot 100 and is up to No. 4 from No. 6 on the adult contemporary chart. “California 37″ will be released April 17 and include 11 songs.
