Kissmas Bash 2K11 -- nifty title, no? -- comes to First Niagara Center at 6 p.m. Tuesday.

Boasting a lineup that directly reflects the daily playlist of Kiss 98.5 FM, this year's show offers Top 40 chart acts that range from the boy band stylings of television sensations Big Time Rush, to the pop-emo melange concocted by former Fall Out Boy leader-gone-solo, Patrick Stump.

Also on the bill are Demi Lovato ("Camp Rock" movie alum and dance-pop starlet), Jason Derulo (R&B-pop auteur with a new hit album, "Future History"), Breathe Carolina (electro-pop/rock duo) and We the Kings (a Florida-born power-pop outfit).

Tickets for Kissmas Bash 2K11 are $15, $20, $35, $45 and $80 (box office, www.FirstNiagaraCenter.com)
