What to do today
Black Diamond Heavies: Known for their Southern style of punk mixed with a blues feel, the Heavies pump out dirty, ragged jams with just organ and drums. Their sound is stripped down and cranked up to 11. 9 p.m. Dave's Aqua Lounge, 10820 Gandy Blvd., St. Petersburg. $7.
Bob Weir and Ratdog: He secured his space in rock history as co-vocalist for the Grateful Dead. Weir also is known as a humanitarian and environmental activist for his work with Seva (which fights blindness in Asia and South America) and Greenpeace. 7:30 p.m. Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen-Booth Road, Clearwater. $37. rutheckerdhall.com.
Cedric Burnside and Lightnin' Malcom: It's a shame blues-lovers will be forced to choose between this show and Black Diamond Heavies, but the apple doesn't fall too far and, boy, what a tree. The grandson of legend R.L. Burnside and son of drumming great Calvin Jackson teams up with Lightnin' Malcolm to pour swampy soul into the otherwise antiseptic reservoir of contemporary blues. 8 p.m. Skipper's Smokehouse, 910 Skipper Road, Tampa. $8. skipperssmokehouse.com.
And more: Tuesday is hardly the most action-packed day of the week, but would you believe there's still more than 70 things to do today in Tampa Bay? Find them all at entertainment.tampabay.com.
What to watch for
Wednesday: A series of monthly discussions for the African-American community, this month's Wide aWoke Wednesdays topic is "Holidays, Holy Days & Pagan Days."
Thursday: Save some cash for the holidays and still get to the zoo with Lowry Park Zoo's 20th Anniversary Days admission special: two tickets for $20.
