Things to do planner: Naked Magic Show, Hunter Hayes at the Rays

TAMPA BAY RAYS: AND HUNTER HAYES

On Saturday after the Rays play the Yankees, stick around for a free post-game concert by Hunter Hayes. The country-rock-blues singer was hailed as the next coming of Brad Paisley in 2012 when he won the Country Music Association's New Artist of the Year award and a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist. He now has three No. 1 singles to his name in Wanted, Somebody's Heartbreak and I Want Crazy. The game starts at 6:10 p.m. Saturday at Tropicana Field. Field access passes are available at raysbaseball.com/concerts. Sunday is Family Fun Day and kids get to run the bases at a post game DJ Kitty dance party with mascot appearances. Kids 14 and younger get a free Rays backpack at the 1:10 p.m. Sunday game. And on Monday, when the team plays the Royals, it's Military Monday, meaning two free tickets for all active-duty military, veterans and dependents of military personnel for the game at 7:10 p.m.

WANDS UP: NAKED MAGIC SHOW

They've got nothing up their sleeves — and little else on, either — at the Naked Magic Show returning to the David A. Straz Jr. Center for the Performing Arts in Tampa this weekend. Comic stripper-magicians Christopher Wayne, left, and Mike Tyler are an Australian duo who were inspired by the movie Magic Mike to create a cheeky magic show that combines their acts with naughty humor. The saucy show for 18 and older is at 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday in Ferguson Hall. Tickets are $35-$45, $65 VIP. (813) 229-7827. strazcenter.org.

POOL BASH: HERE WE GLOW

It's glow night at Largo's Highland Recreation Complex and Family Aquatic Center, 400 Highland Ave. NE, with special lighting and lasers in the pool for Here We Glow, a family-friendly event with DJs and dance music. Each guest will receive a free glow necklace. Splash's Snack Bar will have $1 hot dogs available. Door prizes and activities are planned. It's limited to the first 250 admission bracelets, so call in advance. The party runs from 8:45-11:45 p.m. Friday. $8, $5 members. (727) 518-3016.

FAST FORWARD: 48 Hour Film Project

From writing and casting to filming and editing, filmmakers from the Tampa Bay area competed last weekend to see who could make the best short film for the 48 Hour Film Project. The public is invited to view the finished products at 3 p.m. Sunday at Hillsborough Community College Ybor City Campus, 2112 N 15th St., Tampa. Admission is $10. The festival's Best of Screening will be Aug. 14 at 7 p.m., also at HCC. Started in 2001, the cinematic challenge will tour nearly 125 cities in what is billed as the world's largest filmmaking competition. In Tampa Bay, the judges include Eugenie Bondurant, whose acting resume includes The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, Fight Club and NCIS: New Orleans, and also Tom Flynn, a longtime Hollywood writer whose next film Gifted stars Capt. America himself, Chris Evans. 48hourfilm.com/tampa-fl.
