ANTHONY HAMILTON, THE WHISPERS, DOUG E. FRESH
7 p.m. First Security Amphitheatre. $30-$100.

All right, guys out there? You need to go ahead and hire a babysitter if you need to and then get tickets to this show because your wife or girlfriend deserves a fun night out. So make some reservations at a nice restaurant and then you two head on over to First Security Amphitheatre (formerly Riverfest Amphitheatre) for what is sure to be a fantastic show.

Headlining will be R&B great Anthony Hamilton, a Grammy winner who's had a remarkable streak of albums that straddle the worlds of contemporary R&B and old-school soul. Seriously, if you haven't ever checked out Hamilton, any of his records would be a great place to start, but his most recent album, "Back to Love," is excellent. It's what my old buddy Jason would call "baby-makin' music."

You've also got veteran R&B quintet The Whispers, who had a number of hits spanning several decades. And of course, you've got the original human beatbox Doug E. Fresh, whose single with Slick Rick "The Show/La Di Da Di" is a cornerstone of hip-hop. This show is the 40th Anniversary Benefit Concert for the National Association of Blacks in Criminal Justice. Tickets are available here.
