Concerts: This Just In...


Jamie Foxx plays the Wolstein February 9
There are 54 — count 'em: 54 — new shows to report this week. The two biggest are piano man Billy Joel at the Q, and singer-actor-comedian Jamie Foxx, who'll do a little of all three at CSU's Wolstein Center. Former hair-metal hearthrob Kip Winger brings a scaled-down show to House of Blues, and it's the season for slowcore sensations Low at the Grog Shop — they're the best thing since NyQuil. And we mean that in a good way. That and all the jazz you can shake a trombone at in this week's This Just In... THIS WEEK: Bobby Streng Saxemble: Thursday, January 11. 7:30 p.m., $12.
