Plan your weekend June 21-23

Plan your weekend

Concert

Brad Paisley Unlike many of his other contemporaries, Paisley has a reputation for being quite the guitar gunslinger, and his songs cover all kinds of ground. And if you go, you might just end up on E!, which will be filming for its new summer concert series. He performs with Chris Young and The Henningsens Saturday at 7 p.m. at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre, 4802 U.S. 301 N, Tampa. $29.25 and up. (813) 740-2446.

Date night

Scream on the Green This movie series intended for insomniac adults features cult-classic horror movies showing at midnight the third Friday of every month. This Friday features 1980's The Shining, directed by Stanley Kubrick, starring Jack Nicholson, and loosely adapted from Stephen King's novel. Blankets, low-back chairs and picnic baskets are allowed but skip the alcohol, as Nicholson's "Jack Torrance" should. Free. Curtis Hixon Park, 600 N Ashley Drive, Tampa. (813) 966-5505. 11:59 p.m. Friday.

Art

Art In The Burg More than 60 artists and vendors will take over Jannus Live and the surrounding block, showing and selling a wide range of handmade works as well as original art on Saturday. The day includes live performance art, including chain-saw carving, sculpting, totem making, painting and graffiti art. Parents can check out the newly remodeled Jannus Live while kids decorate free T-shirts in the kid zone. Artwork will be displayed inside and on the sidewalks surrounding the Kitchen, Pelican Pub, Club Detroit and Pelican Pub. Free, items individually priced. Jannus Live, 200 First Ave. N, St. Petersburg. (727) 637-2949. 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.

Stage

West Side Story The latest version of the West Side Story revival follows the tour that played the Straz Center for the Performing Arts in Tampa in 2011. The current non-Equity tour has been on the road since last fall and has its final performances in Clearwater before going on hiatus through the summer. The musical runs Friday through Sunday at Ruth Eckerd Hall. $50-$70. (727) 791-7400; rutheckerdhall.com.

Take the kids

Dive-In Movies Bring your noodles, floats and chairs for a screening of Despicable Me at the St. Pete Beach public pool. The spray play area for kids and two large water slides are available when doors open at 8 p.m. The movie starts after dusk. It's $4 at the St. Pete Beach Aquatic Center, 7701 Boca Ciega Drive, St. Pete Beach. (727) 363-9264. 8 p.m. Friday.

Pride Week

Pre-Pride parties To gear up for the gay Pride Parade next weekend, this weekend has some parties to set the tone. If you go to the Metro Masquerade for Pride on Friday, wear a fancy mask and get geared up for the St. Pete Pride Carnivale at this party with drink specials, raffle, a drag show, male dancers and free HIV testing. No cover. Georgie's Alibi, 3100 Third Ave. N, St. Petersburg. (727) 321-2112. 4 p.m. Friday. Or break out your hideous '80s outfits for the Pride Prom Party on Saturday, featuring colorful works of art, a neon runway show, live music, video art, magical surprises and a best-dressed contest. $10, $20 VIP. ARTpool Gallery, 2030 Central Ave., St. Petersburg. (727) 324-3878. 8 p.m. to midnight Saturday.

Dance fever

Millennium Dancesport Championship The five-day dance championship that's taking place at the Marriott Tampa Waterside this week has celebrity judges and Cuban flavor this year. And when it's over, the after-party is "An Afternoon in Havana," at the Coliseum in downtown St. Petersburg. But the hottest part might be the hosts — namely Maks Chmerkovskiy of Dancing With the Stars bad-boy fame. He'll be joined by Mary Murphy (So You Think You Can Dance) and DWTS's Tony Dovolani. The dance championship runs through Saturday with top competitors from around the world; $25-$150; (863) 668-9668; 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. today, 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Friday-Saturday. At the Coliseum party, which is from 2 to 6 p.m. Sunday, there will be Latin dance stars, Cuban food and drink, plus a courtyard for cigar smoking. Tickets for reserved table seating are $70-$145. (727) 538-7750; afternooninhavana.com.
