Valdes at Hialeah; Tracy Lawrence at Miccosukee

Cuban entertainer Alexis Valdés gives a free show at 9 p.m. Friday in the Paddock Garden at Hialeah Park. Valdés, whose repertoire includes singing, comedy, monologues, screenwriting, and producing, is best known for TV comedy shows Seguro Que Yes on America Teve and Ésta Es Tu Noche on Mega TV. The show is a makeup from the scheduled June 9, which was rained out.

My apologies for not putting you two as the lead item, but the Valdes show is more imminent. Anyway, country singers Tracy Lawrence (“Alibis,” “Time Marches On”) and Deana Carter (“Did I Shave My Legs for This?”) will perform at 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 4, at Miccosukee Resort & Gaming. General admission tickets cost $35, $75 for VIP seating and meet and greet VIP package for $125. Fireworks follow the show. (If I weren’t going to be out of town, I would be there; I like them both.)
