Things to do in Tampa Bay for May 28

Eve 6: Best known for the melodramatic Inside Out, Eve 6 returns to the stage with two of three original members, evoking a more poppy, lovesick solid rock sound. It plays with Jimmie's Chicken Shack and Orange Hour at 7 p.m. at State Theatre, 687 Central Ave., St. Petersburg. $25. (727) 895-3045.

Silly Bandz Beach Bash: It's at United Skates of America, not the beach, but there will be beach tunes. The kid who wears the most of those silly silicon bracelets will win a $25 prize. It costs $8, and that includes skate rental. It's at 8 p.m. at 5121 N Armenia Ave., Tampa.

Johnny Phoenix, Danger Comedian: The Palm Beach County native fills his standup sets with improvisation and physical feats, sometimes eating fire. He performs at 8 p.m. at Theater 2 at the University of South Florida, 4202 E Fowler Ave., Tampa. $15. Buy tickets at (they're not on sale at the theater box office).


Free movie in the park: Take your little monsters to see Where the Wild Things Are today at Largo Central Park. It's doggie date night, too! Bring blankets and chairs. The movie begins about 7 p.m. at 101 Central Park Drive in Largo.


Wife Swap, 8 p.m., ABC: An etiquette teacher switches places with a mom who takes her daughters mud racing. There's got to be a polite way to spin doughnuts out in a bog.

Friday Night Lights, 8 p.m., NBC: It's homecoming, complete with angry boosters, a hunting trip and a history lesson about East Dillon. We don't recall homecoming being that exciting.

Cannibal Hippos, 10 p.m., NatGeo: This special about an apparent hippo-killing epidemic that jumps to humans sounds more like a SyFy original movie than an educational special.


Summer's here, and so's our urge to drop by one of the bay area's waterfront megaplex bars. Check out our list of faves at


The Gulfport Tuesday Fresh Market is open year-round, with 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. summer hours. The May 13 Weekend section incorrectly listed it as closed for the summer.
