Ever since Harry Connick Jr. went all Will & Grace on us, the pop-jazz genre has been looking for its next great crooner. Peter Cincotti, who recently got Katie Couric all hot 'n' bothered during a Today appearance, seems ready to step up. The 21-year-old dreamboat who hails from NYC has graced the cover of several national magazines, has become a critics' darling almost overnight and watched his album On the Moondebut at No. 2 on the Billboard jazz charts. He'll hit the Verizon Wireless Theater tonight, where he'll tickle the ivories, flip his perfectly shorn bangs and offer up lines like "On the moon / that's where you'll find me soon" to adoring, gushing fans. Hang with the jazzy pretty boy at 8 p.m. 520 Texas. For tickets and information, call 713-629-3700 or visit www.ticketmaster.com. $26 to $45.
