4Troops: Soldiers dancing to Gaga and Ke$ha was so 2010. In the new year, make way for talented harmonic troupes made up of, well … troops.

Date night

Sleep With the Fishes: Octopussy would have loved this Bond-themed Florida Aquarium fundraiser at Michael Murphy Gallery to benefit the octopus exhibit. It's a night of martinis, intrigue and action. Dress as Bond or a Bond girl at 7 p.m. at 2701 S MacDill Ave., Tampa. $50. (813) 902-1414.

To watch

SERIES PREMIERE, Beyond Scared Straight, 10 p.m., A&E: It worked in 1978. Will it work with these Gen Y kids and their entitled attitude?

SEASON PREMIERE, Laugh Out Loud Comedy Festival, 11 p.m., Showtime: More standup comedy with lots of swearing. Take that, Comedy Central.
