Things to do in Tampa Bay for the week of Sept. 2

Labor Day: Sure hope you have the day off because today is the last day of Shephard's Beach Resort's Old Skool Labor Day Weekend on Clearwater Beach. There's lots of music by DJs Nova, Deville, Ku, Ray and Jaime Ferreira. $10 at 619 S Gulfview Blvd., Clearwater. (727) 441-6875.

Sea Monsters Revealed: Today is also your last chance to see this exhibit of plastinated real sea creatures inside and out at the Museum of Science and Industry in Tampa. $18.95, $16.95 seniors, $12.95 12 and under.

Tampa Bay Boat Show: Check out hundreds of the latest boats and marine accessories, plus fishing seminars, boat rides and, best of all, a 15,000-gallon heated scuba diving pool. It runs Friday through Sunday at the Tampa Convention Center. $12, 15 and younger free. (954) 441-3220.

Instagram exhibit: "Filter/Border" is a juried fine arts show of Instagrams — so probably not like the one of Uncle Chester doing the hula in your phone. The opening reception is Sept. 13 at Tempus Projects at CL Space, 1911 N 13th St., Tampa. Free.

Date Night

Hedwig and the Angry Inch: It's been both a musical and a movie that tells the story of Hedwig Schmidt, a rock 'n' roll goddess who had a botched sex-change operation.

Jason Aldean: The cowboy hat gives him away as all country, with hits The Only Way I Know, Night Train and When She Says Baby. Show is Friday at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa. $25.50-$55.25. (813) 740-2446.

Rob Schneider: An alum of Saturday Night Live and just about every Adam Sandler movie, he has said that his Grown Ups castmates prodded him to get back into standup. He's at the Improv in Tampa on Friday through Sunday. $27-$30. (813) 864-4000.

John Mayer: After several years largely without touring, the singer-songwriter returns to the bay area on a tour for his album Born and Raised. American Idol Phillip Phillips opens on Saturday at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa. $36-$75. (813) 740-2446.
