General

Billy Ocean

When: Fri., Aug. 5, 8 p.m. 2011

Give Leslie Sebastian Charles a saxophone, a synthesizer, some backup singers and a cliched couplet, and he’ll give you ’80s magic (“When the Going Gets Tough, the Tough Get Going”). Now 61, silver-dreadlocked and namedropped by everyone from disco-aping indie-rockers to Big Boi, the Caribbean king is doubling down with two shows at Boomtown. Tickets $25. 7:30 p.m. & 9:30 p.m. Friday. Boomtown Casino, 4132 Peters Road, Harvey, 366-7711; www.boomtownneworleans.com
