DAVID COOK8:30 p.m., Revolution. $20.
Maybe you only recognize him, in passing, as the dude with the three-day stubble who beat the cherubic kid in “American Idol” last year. Or maybe as the first “Idol” to win on angst — pop-cleansed angst, but angst. But surely you know you're living in the fringes of pop culture. Because David Cook
, despite only rising to fame last year, not only already owns a platinum album, he also holds the record for most songs simultaneously on the Billboard Hot 100 in one week (14!). He's huge, y'all, and he's taking a break from his “Declaration Tour” that's seen him hit college campuses across the country for this intimate gig. Get ready for homemade love signs, camera phones up in the air and a steady high-pitched squeal. Ryan Star
, a vet of CBS' “Rock Star: Supernova,” opens the show, which is open to all ages.
NOTE: The remaining tickets go on sale at 11 a.m. Better hustle on down. There was a line this morning at 9 a.m.
