-- Digigal Underground rapper Shock G is coming to the Blue Martini in Tampa at 10 p.m. Dec. 12, which is a Monday. Odd venue, but we'll take any chance we can get to do the humpty dance. Click here.

They'll cover the outdoor pool with a see-through dance floor, which sounds fun. Limited tickets are available for $150. Click here.
