There's a good chance that a lot of gals -- and a few sensitive guys -- will fill the seats when the Chicks With Attitude Tour, a cavalcade of female expression, arrives at the Paramount Theatre, 1621 Glenarm Place, tonight. Indie rocker turned sex kitten Liz Phair, operatic-piped pop singer Charlotte Martin, L.A. teen queen Katy Rose and Swedish popsters the Cardigans will help get things revved up. The concert, sponsored with a bat of the eyelashes by Maybelline, begins at 7 p.m.; for tickets, $35, call 303-830-TIXS.
