THINGS TO DO
Gasparilla Film Festival: The closing film for the festival is at Cinebistro, 1609 W Swann Ave. in Tampa. The Tampa-based documentary Thespians (4:30), is followed by an awards party atop the Hyde Park Village parking garage at 7 p.m. The open-bar affair costs $60, or $75 for the full VIP treatment. For a schedule see gasparillafilmfestival.com.
Florida Orchestra: The Master Chorale of Tampa Bay and the University of South Florida Chamber Singers join the orchestra, with Stefan Sanderling on the podium, to perform Mendelssohn's Elijah. The show is 7:30 p.m. at Ruth Eckerd Hall, Clearwater. $20-$67. (727) 892-3337 or, toll-free, at 1-800-662-7286; floridaorchestra.org.
Rodrigo y Gabriela: After meeting in a thrash metal band, Mexican guitarists (and Metallica worshipers) Rodrigo Sanchez and Gabriela Quintero took a seemingly illogical next step: They moved to Ireland to play acoustic world music. See them at 8 p.m. at the Ritz Ybor, 1503 Seventh Ave., Ybor City. $25. (813) 247-2555.
MacDill AirFest: It's the final day to see lots of free sky action from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa (gates open at 8 a.m.). The stars will be the Blue Angels at 3 p.m. Also check out the Virtual Army Experience, which takes you on a virtual mission. HART is adding weekend service on bus Route 4 to take people back and forth from downtown Tampa to the base. See macdill-airfest.com for a schedule and link to bus information.
UniverSoul Circus: Like other circuses, you'll see clowns, trapeze artists and acrobats. But UniverSoul throws in some break dancers and Caribbean limbo dancers. Find the funky big top in the Raymond James Stadium parking lot, 4201 N Dale Mabry Highway, Tampa. The show is 7:30 tonight. Tickets are $12-$26.50 at toll-free 1-800-316-7439 or online at ticket master.com. Check out the circus at universoulcircus.com.
WMNF Skate Party: Like the programming on the community radio station, the mix for the roller rink will be eclectic, from polka to soul to Latin jazz and house party music. It starts at 5 p.m. at Town & Country Skateworld, 7510 Paula Drive in Tampa. Free for little kids, $5 for ages 6 and older.
What to watch
The Simpsons, 8 p.m., Fox: Word of warning: Michelle Obama is in this episode, but in image only; Angela Bassett is the voice. You'd think the Obamas could arrange something in their quest to win every voter younger than 45.
Minute to Win It, 8 p.m., NBC: Contestants perform inane tasks over and over again in an attempt to win enough money to live comfortably. We already play that game show eight hours a day, five days a week.
SERIES PREMIERE Jerseylicious, 10 p.m., Style: Another reality show about Jerseyites, this time about a salon. Do mobsters hang out in front of it all day talking about who they want to have frosted?
