    The King comes to town. Check out B.B. King play his guitar "Lucille" tonight in Connecticut.

    RIDING WITH THE KING:  About this time of year we all get the blues a little.  The holidays are over, and it's a long way to Spring.  But rather than try to cheer up, why not embrace the blues tonight.  B.B. King is bringing his beloved guitar, Lucille, to the Klein Memorial Auditorium in BridgeportKing has been a Blues legend since the 40's, playing more than 15,000 shows, crafting 50 albums, and some of the best songs of all time like "The Thrill is Gone," "Georgia" and "When Love Comes to Town."  Now, at 85-years-young, King is still going strong, and inspiring new generations of Blues.  Tickets are $60-$110.  The show starts at 8 p.m.

    WELL I'LL BE:  Remember back in the '90s when music was still good?  One of the biggest songs of the decade has to be "I'll Be" by Edwin McCain.  The singer/songwriter hit it big with the song back in 1998, which is still one of the most popular songs at weddings.  Since then, he's toured relentlessy.  Tonight, you can see Edwin at Infinity Hall in Norfolk when he performs with alt-rocker Mieka Pauley, who is described as a mix between Radiohead, Patty Griffin, Jeff Buckley and Nirvana (now that's impressive!).  Tickets for the 8 p.m. show are $45-$65.
