Los Angeles electronic rock band AWOLNATION will bring its signature style to the Crocodile Rock Caf√© (520 Hamilton St., Allentown) come March 22.
The group‚??s 2011 platinum-selling hit single, ‚??Sail,‚?Ě propelled them to notoriety, a song that was used in a video of professional BASE jumper, skydiver, and wing suit flyer Jeb Corliss.
Tickets go on sale Jan. 11 at 10 a.m. They‚??re $20 in advance, $22 day of show and can be purchased at crocodilerockcafe.com.
‚??50 Shades of Gray‚?Ě is now a household phrase, as the book trilogy of that moniker made quite a stir in the literary world last year.
The naughty book follows the relationship of young Anastasia Steele and business mogul Christian Grey, a man for which the words ‚??likes to get freaky in the bedroom‚?Ě is a severe understatement.
The story can now be enjoyed in parody form thanks to the production ‚??SPANK!‚?Ě ‚?? a comedy that re-imagines the book‚??s characters and plot. There‚??s musical numbers, witty dialogue, and plenty of sexy performances.
The show comes to the F.M. Kirby Center (71 Public Square, Wilkes-Barre) Feb. 2 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $28.50 and $36.50 and can be purchased at kirbycenter.org, by calling 570.826.1100, or at the F.M. Kirby Center Box Office.
‚??Bowl for Kids‚?? Sake‚?Ě is right around the corner, and this year the kickoff will pit people against local radio and TV personalities in a bout of Wii Bowling.

Honorary ‚??Bowl‚?Ě chairs Frankie Warren of Magic 93 and Tom and Noreen Clark of WNEP will ‚??bowl‚?Ě on the Wii against competitors on a first-come basis, though those that register a team for ‚??Bowl for Kids‚?? Sake 2013‚?Ě will be given the first chance.
