Coming up

Smashing Pumpkins Don't expect Wednesday's show at Ruth Eckerd Hall to be a "best of" evening. Billy Corgan has been giving crowds material from the Pumpkins' latest album, Zeitgeist, some Pink Floyd stuff and apparently, kazoos! See them at 8 p.m. at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen-Booth Road, Clearwater. $39.50-$49.50. (727) 791-7400.

Wide aWoke Wednesdays There's always a crowd at this the monthly hot-topics discussion. But last year's topic of "Why Black Men Don't Go to Church" drew such a huge response and continuing debate, that it's back for a second service. Catch up with the discussion at the University of South Florida Alumni Center, 4202 E Fowler Ave. in Tampa on Wednesday starting at 7:30 p.m. See Price: $5.
