Things to do on Tuesday, Nov. 18

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.

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.

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

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.

The Phi-Theta-Alpha History Club and Pi-Sigma-Alpha Political Science Honors Society at St. Leo University hosted a watch party on Election Night that was nonpartisan. A Nov. 4 listing incorrectly affiliated it with a political party.
