ST. PETERSBURG - Train, Matt Nathanson and Mary Lambert headline Mix 100.7 Mistletoe Show, Friday, Dec. 19, at 7:30 p.m. at The Mahaffey Theater.

With a resume packed with smashes like “Drops of Jupiter,” “Hey, Soul Sister” and “Drive By,” Train is one of the most successful alternative-rock bands of the last decade.

CLEARWATER - Celebrating 40 years, Southern rock legends The Outlaws will return to where it all started with a special concert in Tampa Bay, at the historic Capitol Theatre in downtown Clearwater on Friday, Dec. 19, 8 p.m. with special guest Blackhawk.

“To come back to the Tampa Bay area and play an Outlaws show for our hometown family and friends is one of the most rewarding footnotes to this band's storied career,” said founding member Henry Paul. “The perseverance, sacrifice, and dedication to keep this band and its music alive will always be worth any price paid.”

History lesson: Formed in Tampa in 1972, The Outlaws, known for their triple-guitar rock attack and three-part country harmonies, became one of the first acts signed by Clive Davis (at the urging of Ronnie Van Zant) to his then-fledgling Arista Records.
