St. Patrick's Day might be right around the corner, but lets face it: It isn't here yet. Luckily, for all ye Irish lovin' lads and lassies, Riverdance is headed to Charlotte to hold you over. This show (along with seven others to be performed at Ovens Auditorium) is part of the international group's "Farewell" tour. You can expect some good ol' Irish music and songs, and of course, lots of dancing. March 3-5, 7:30 p.m.; March 6, 8 p.m.; March 7, 2 p.m. and 8 p.m.; March 8, 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Ovens Auditorium, 2700 E. Independence Blvd. 704-372-1000. www.blumenthalcenter.org.
