On your radar: Two American folk icons will be in Clearwater — or you could take your dog to a Christmas party in St. Pete

Judy Collins and Arlo Guthrie: The American folk icons and social activists will perform pieces from their own song catalogs, then join together for some holiday tunes at 8 p.m. at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater. $42–$52.

Enchanted Forest Christmas Party: This pet-friendly holiday party will have an enchanted pine forest set up in the front terrace of the chic Queens Head, a Eurobar and restaurant in the Grand Central area of St. Petersburg. There will be a pet and human Christmas costume contest and armbands for drink specials. Proceeds benefit Pet Pal Rescue. 5 p.m., 2501 Central Ave., St. Petersburg. $5 donation requested.

Love's Labour's Lost: It's "pay what you can" night for this performance of a Shakespearean tale of kings set in Navarre and modernized through the use of Spanish music and design that emphasizes the timelessness of the dangers of pride. 7 p.m., [email protected], 620 First Ave. S, St. Petersburg. $20, $15 students/seniors.

Vagabond Swing: This band has musical roots ranging from bluegrass to ska and prides themselves on producing a smooth mixture of progressive gypsy-swing tunes vibe. 9 p.m., New World Brewery, 1313 E Eighth Ave., Tampa. $7.

Fedde Le Grand: The DJ and producer has been making headlines lately for his remixes of and collaborations with Coldplay. 10 p.m., Amphitheatre, 1609 E Seventh Ave., Ybor City. $10-$20.

Date night

Flicks and Food Trucks: The food trucks pull up for you to grab a beer and some grub before you find a seat to watch area independent films at 6 p.m. at Grand Central at Kennedy, 1208 E Kennedy Blvd., Tampa. Free admission (food and drink additional).

To watch

The Year With Katie Couric, 9 p.m., ABC: Catch up on what Katie Couric has been up to this year, since you obviously weren't watching her on the evening news.

Series premiere, Impractical Jokers, 10 p.m., TruTV: It's like Jackass, but not on MTV, so we can expect less stifled homoeroticism and fireworks.
