Sunday To-Do: Christina Milian

CHRISTINA MILIAN
6:30 p.m., the Village. $15 adv., $20 d.o.s.

Apparently the Village is the place to host Christmas-themed radio get-downs. The night after “The Edge” offers a bill geared towards the angst-y set, “Alice” 107.7 goes pop with “Not So Silent Night.” Filling the Hoobastank role, the poor man's J. Lo, Christina Milian, serves as the name headliner. Like any good B-list R&B diva aspiring for the next level, Milian's a singer slash actress. She's spent the better part of the last decade cobbling an almost respectable CV, moving on up from TV (she passed up a spot on “The Mickey Mouse Club,” but did time on “The Steve Harvey Show”) to film (the lead in the teen stinker “Love Don't Cost a Thing” and a starring role in “Be Cool,” the sequel to “Get Shorty”). Most recently, she starred in a video game, so apparently now's a good time to return to music. In September, she signed with MySpace Records. She's prepping an album for release in the spring of '09, with one single, the sappy power ballad “Us Against the World,” already under her belt. Also on the bill: rising Barbados-based diva Shontelle, who's pushing her major label debut, “Shontelligence”; Melissa Etheridge acolyte Lesley Roy; weepy white-boy rockers Thriving Ivory; Atlanta-based emo-pop group American Affair and We the Kings, another batch of weepy white boys who specialize in innocuous pop.
