ADAM LAMBERT: The "American Idol" crooner is at the Music Box tonight and Club Nokia tomorrow. Will the "For Your Entertainment" performer's devotees hit both theaters? We think it is pretty much a sure thing. The singer is on his Glam Nation Tour, and The Canyons are also part of the night tonight. 8 p.m.
CHANTICLEER: When people say they want a big-voiced, traditional-but-not-cobwebby carol concert that is flush with festive standards and a few surprising pieces, we bet they're thinking of the esteemed group Chanticleer. You can see video of them on the LA Phil site -- they're at Walt Disney Concert Hall tonight -- and you can feel the carol-induced thrills. You're getting the carol-induced thrills right about now? We hope.
