I never thought our society would actually ask us to choose between Sheryl Crow and Lance Armstrong. I mean, this is America — I can't have both? Alas no — when they broke up, we were asked to choose our allegiances. It's either the cyclist with the horse's heart or the singer who wants to soak up the sun. Crow has racked up nine Grammy Awards for her late-afternoon rock and late-night blues sound. She's become a Voice, in other words — suitable to cover greats such as Johnny Cash — and performs with the Stones, Michael Jackson and Eric Clapton. And best of all, she doesn't make you wear any damn rubber bracelets, Lance. She plays the Alltel Pavilion at the Stuart C. Siegel Center Saturday, Oct. 18, at 8 p.m. to raise money for eight local nonprofits. Tickets are $35-$125. 828-7267.
