Things to do in Tampa Bay for May 12

Minus the Bear: With the Flaming Lips forced to cancel its show at Jannus Live tonight, indie fans might fill the void with this slinky prog-rock set. Its new atmospheric disc Omni is dreamer-pop at its finest. See it at 8 p.m. at the Ritz Ybor, 1503 E Seventh Ave. in Tampa. $18.

All Leather: If you like noisy dance music, this is the band for you. Show, also featuring Yip Yip, starts at 7 p.m. at Orpheum, 1902 N Republica De Cuba in Ybor City. Tickets are $8.50. (813) 248-9500.

Kids and family

Cut! Costume and the Cinema: This is the last week to catch this traveling exhibition that features more than 40 period costumes, including ones from Sense and Sensibility, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl and Sherlock Holmes. Through Sunday at the Florida International Museum at St. Petersburg College, 244 Second Ave. N, St. Petersburg. $12, $10 seniors/military, $5 students. (727) 341-7900.

To watch

SEASON FINALE, America's Next Top Model, 8 p.m., CW: Can we call it a surprise double elimination if we already know about it? Thankfully, they wait until there's only two finalists to shoot the inevitable commercial.

Top Chef Masters, 10 p.m., Bravo: The Simpsons creator Matt Groening, voice actor Hank Azaria and writer Matt Selman judge a quickfire challenge based on the show's characters. We can't wait to see what they come up with for Moe Szyslak.

Happy Town, 10 p.m., ABC: Episode title is "Polly Wants a Crack at Her," which is so clever we forgot to check what the show is about. Oh, right, murders and such.

Coming up

$5 Day at the Zoo: Lowry Park does this only a couple of times a year, and the crowds can be massive. But if you take advantage of this deal Sunday, go early and bring along water shoes and drip-dry clothes to play in the splash zone. Zoo opens at 9:30 a.m. at 1101 W Sligh Ave. in Tampa. (813) 935-8552.
