Jonas Brothers The Concert Experience Walt Disney, $29.99/$39.99; Blu-ray, $44.99 Unlike a lot of other tween-targeted pop acts, the Jonas Brothers are accomplished musicians more than magnetic personalities, which might explain why the band's records sell so well while its Disney Channel efforts have proved disappointing.

The Jonas Brothers -- and everyone they employ -- can rest easy: Recent rumors regarding the death of Jonasmania have been greatly exaggerated. On Friday night at Staples Center, in the first of three weekend shows there, the Jonases demonstrated that when it comes to America's boy bands, nobody inspires more devotion, triggers more flashbulbs or elicits more ear-destroying shrieks.

The Greek Theatre, which has hosted the likes of Steve Miller, Sheryl Crow and Ringo Starr, has canceled precious few shows in its storied past. So last year, when it crossed off nine engagements, it was nothing short of a catastrophe. "In a normal year we'd have one or maybe two," said Alex Hodges, chief executive of Nederlander Concerts Inc., which operates the Greek Theatre. "We had never had nine. " This year, concert promoters are anxious to avert an encore of last year's disastrous season, when gross receipts fell 7.6% and notable acts such as the Jonas Brothers, Lilith Fair and Christina Aguilera canceled shows because of lackluster ticket sales.

Cut to Quincy Pondexter carrying a box of Krispy Kreme doughnuts into his team's practice facility. Bring on Darren Collison and Marcus Thornton , trying their best to croon Beyonce's "Single Ladies. " Those are just some of the G-rated antics rookies have been subjected to in recent years.
