This winter has thrown you for a loop and left you feeling out of step. Maybe it's the constantly cloudy skies or the teeth-chattering cold, or perhaps you're just longing for that freeing comfiness you experience when you're wearing your favorite shorts and sandals. Of course, we have to remind you that it's only March and that there are several more months until warmer weather is here to stay. You need to go ahead and pull it together now and get things moving in a more synchronized direction. We think the Showdown can help. This drum-line show, featuring ensembles from historically black colleges and universities (including Langston University, Ohio's Central State University and Lincoln University) and even the kids from the University City Marching Lions Drum Line, promises an afternoon of taps, beats and booms that is sure to have you feeling happily rhythmic in no time. The Showdown begins at 2 p.m. at Chaifetz Arena (1 South Compton Avenue). Tickets cost $13 and are available at 314-534-1111 or www.metrotix.com. To learn more, visit www.showmesound.org.
