On your radar: Wu-Tang Clan member GZA, the lives of Sigmund Freud and Salvador Dalí and a Jacques Bautista exhibition

GZA: Wu-Tang Clan member GZA can be added to the list of '90s acts reuniting to play fan favorite albums, as he performs 1995's Liquid Swords in its entirety. Killer Mike also performs. It's at 7 p.m. at State Theatre, 687 Central Ave., St. Petersburg. $24.50. (727) 895-3045.

Jacques Bautista Exhibition: This exhibit highlights the ideas surrounding the persona of the artist, through large format paintings, sculptural work and video elements. An artist's reception will close the show on Saturday. It's at noon at [email protected], 620 First Ave. S, St. Petersburg. Free. (727) 895-6620.

Hysteria: Two of the world's most eccentric men, Sigmund Freud and Salvador Dalí, meet in this play set in London in 1938. See it at 8 p.m. at American Stage Theatre Company in St. Petersburg. $39–$49; $10 student rush 30 minutes before show. (727) 823-7529.

Coming up

$5 Day at MOSI: On Saturday, the Museum of Science & Industry in Tampa will offer admission for only $5 that includes access to MOSI exhibit galleries, including the Amazing You exhibition, Kids In Charge!, the largest children's science center in the nation and more than 450 hands-on, interactive exhibits. Admission to $5 Day also includes entrance to the IMAX Dome Theatre film Space Junk and the exhibition Target America — Opening Eyes to the Damage Drugs Cause. MOSI will be open from 9 a.m.–6 p.m. Saturday.

To watch

Series premiere: Arrow, 8 p.m., CW: A TV series based on the DC Comics character Green Arrow, who is pretty handy with a bow, we hear. You wouldn't want people to get this guy confused with Green Lantern or the Green Hornet, unless his show is just as bad as those movies.

Series premiere: Nashville, 10 p.m., ABC: American Horror Story refugee Connie Britton shares a show with Heroes alum Hayden Panettiere about a veteran singer and a marketable cheesecake. You guess which is which.

Series premiere: Chicago Fire, 10 p.m., NBC: A show about firefighters and paramedics in Chicago. Nobody's tried this since Rescue Me hit it big, so let's see how it works out.
