TO THE BONE:

Ribfest

For 30 years, Ribfest has been a major draw in downtown St. Petersburg, bringing together big musical acts and competitive barbecue. It has also allowed the Northeast Exchange Club to donate $4.8 million to local charities over the last three decades, thanks to the all-volunteer work force. This year, admission to the Vinoy Park festival is lower. Friday tickets are $5, Saturday and Sunday are $20 each and include entrance and all entertainment. Fancy “Boss Hog” tickets runs from $75 to $325.

On the food side, look for award-winning ribbers including Blazin’ Bronco out of Cleveland; Cowboys BBQ & Rib Co. from Fort Wayne, Texas; Desparado’s from Hinckley, Ohio; Johnson’s BBQ from Chesapeake, Va.; Texas Outlaw out of Elizabethtown, Ky.; the Tender Rib from Brandywine, Md.; and our hometown heroes, Fat Fred’s Famous BBQ out of St. Petersburg. A new feature this year, if barbecue isn’t your jam, is an array of different food vendors offering kettle corn, churros, paella, empanadas, pizza and loads of other foods.

On the music side, the main stage lineup includes Kansas vocalist and stringmaster Robby Steinhardt headlining on Friday at 8:30 p.m., and country day on Saturday has earnest baritone Josh Turner (Long Black Train) headlining at 8:30 p.m. On Sunday, Barenaked Ladies (One Week, It’s All Been Done), above, will close the festival at 6:30 p.m. Los Lonely Boys (Heaven) and another cover band, Pat Benatar tribute band Fire and Ice, round out Sunday’s bill. Gates open at 4 p.m. Friday and at noon on Saturday and Sunday. 501 Bayshore Drive NE, St. Petersburg. (727) 528-3828. ribfest.org.

TAKE THE KIDS: Koo Koo Kanga Roo

The comedic Minneapolis dance-pop duo of Bryan Atchison and Neil Olstad goes by Koo Koo Kanga Roo. The all-ages dance party has been described as “the Beastie Boys meet Sesame Street.” The show relies heavily on audience participation, so don’t expect to stay in your seat at the Capitol Theatre at 2 p.m. Sunday. 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. $18-$35. (727) 791-7400. atthecap.com.

FANCY CARS: Concours d’Elegance

Sunday brings the inaugural Cigar City Concours d’Elegance car show to the Starkey Ranch District Park in Odessa. The French term meaning “competition of elegance” dates back to the 17th century, when aristocrats paraded horse-drawn carriages in the parks of Paris. There are Concours d’Elegance events around the world, most famously in the United States at Pebble Beach, Calif., and Hilton Head, S.C. It is exclusively for prestigious vehicles to be displayed and judged. Sunday’s theme is Transformation of Transportation, featuring a special class that will focus on “Period Correct Hot Rods and Customs from 1932-1955,” and a Lincoln display on the 18th green of the North Starkey Ranch Golf Course. There will also be live cigar rollers and vendors selling luxury items, wines, cigars, cocktails, craft beers and food. 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Sunday. 11880 Lake Blanche Drive, Odessa. $24.95. cigarcityconcours.com.

Never before exhibited works from acclaimed Cuban artist Pedro Pablo Oliva on display at UT

Tags :

Category : Event , Tampa Bay

TAMPA — Many never before exhibited works from a contemporary Cuban artist are on display at the University of Tampa’s Scarfone/Hartley Gallery.

Pedro Pablo Oliva is an acclaimed artist residing in Cuba. Active since the 1960s, his work is a favorite among Florida collectors. Of more than 45 paintings, bronze sculptures and drawings on display in “Pedro Pablo Oliva’s Cuba: Histories,” all belong to private collections and only a couple have been exhibited in America before. This is his first solo exhibition in the United States.

There’s already a buzz surrounding the exhibition, which opens Friday.

“There has been a lot of interest in the show,” said Francesca Bacci, head curator and associate professor of art and design. “People are coming to see if they can (bring it to other galleries), local curators are coming, and a lot of people are coming from Miami. It’s a big deal.”

Bacci was introduced to Oliva’s work through her colleague Jack King, who’d curated an exhibition of Cuban art that included a piece. Taken by Oliva’s colorful, surreal dreamscapes loaded with symbolism, Bacci contacted his curator in Cuba, who directed her to his collectors in Miami.

Oliva suffers from Parkinson’s disease, but remarkably, his trembling stops when he draws, paints and sculpts. One would never imagine that from the precise lines that he makes. Much of his work has to do with Cuba, from an entire series on Fidel Castro to the tunnels that were built in the 1990s during the Special Period in in Time of Peace.

Bacci recruited student Monique Aparicio to accompany her to Cuba to meet Oliva in August. They shot a documentary about his life, which will be debuted at the opening reception Friday evening. They also created a full color exhibition catalogue, a first for the gallery, which contains essays and every painting on display.

Oliva will be in attendance at the opening reception. He etched a copper plate especially for the show and will be live screen printing prints that will be for sale as a fundraiser. In addition to the paintings, his preparatory drawings will fill an entire room, along with never-before-seen sketches from his archive, under plexiglas on two tables.

Cuteness alert: Litter of African painted dogs born at ZooTampa

Tags :

Category : Event , Tampa Bay

Need a stress reliever? ZooTampa at Lowry Park is celebrating the births of seven rare African painted dogs, and they are awfully cute.

The multi-colored pups are the first of this endangered African species to be born at the Tampa zoo. They also are the first born to mother Layla and father Hatari, who both arrived at the zoo earlier this year as part of a collaborative species conservation program.

Also called African wild dogs, the species is native to sub-Saharan Africa. The global population is less than 6,600 and still declining due to human conflict, habitat fragmentation and diseases such as rabies and distemper.

“We are one of only a few zoos playing a leading role in the work to save the charismatic African painted dog. The birth of these pups is a significant step in helping save the population that is under severe threat,” said Dr. Larry Killmar, senior vice president and chief zoological officer at ZooTampa at Lowry Park. “When we welcomed Layla and Hatari to our zoo, our hope was for a healthy litter that will be part of AZA’s African Wild Dog Species Survival Plan designed to help to save this important species.”

The pups will stay close to their mother for the next three to four weeks before leaving their den. As they get bigger and more independent, visitors can watch them grow up at the zoo.

The painted dogs’ name refers to its distinctive multi-colored fur. Each animal’s coat is patterned differently. When traveling together, their coloration confuses prey by making the pack seem larger than it actually is. The dogs have large round ears and only four toes.

Working cooperatively, the dogs hunt in packs of six to 20. The zoo occasionally hosts carcass feeds to demonstrate their unique hunting behavior, a zoo news release said.

Kate Helms explores climate change, Mize goes mod and an art flip at the Studio@620

Category : Event , Tampa Bay

Lost Landscapes:

Tidewater Elegy

With divisive issues, sometimes presenting a side visually is much more effective than arguing about it. Kate Helms’ installation at HCC’s Gallery 221 is just that, a stunning visual of the long-term effects of climate change. Tidewater Elegy imagines a world when the water levels have risen, driving that concept home with a Victorian-inspired Florida parlor set with marine-life-encrusted furniture. The forms resemble sponges and barnacles, reminiscent of the way shipwrecks become coral reefs. Helms chose the Victorian era because it was another time of great opulence and pollution, much like today. Along the walls, the fictional homeowner has plastered yellowed bathymetric maps, obsessively charting the tides and whiting out the areas that will be under water someday. Helms is a native Floridian and an environmental scientist, which informs her work. She’ll give an artist talk at the opening reception Thursday at 6 p.m. The reception runs 5-8 p.m. The exhibit remains on display through Dec. 12. 4001 W Tampa Bay Blvd., Tampa. hccfl.edu/gallery221.

Swinging London: MOD at Mize

It was only a matter of time before Chad Mize debuted an art show based on the mods of the 1960s. He’s so obsessed with supermodel Twiggy’s mod look that he painted a huge mural of her on the back of his former space. And the mods were a stylish bunch, with their fitted suits, tooling around London on Vespas, listening to jazz, soul and R&B. So Mize felt like fall would be a cool time to present Mod, opening Friday at his gallery. He tapped more than 20 national and local artists to interpret this subculture, including Las Vegas-based Snipt, whose work is pictured. The opening reception happens Friday from 6-10 p.m., so break out your Italian suits and mini skirts and head to 689 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. St. N, St. Petersburg. chadmize.com.

Switch it Up: Art Flip Opening Reception

Earlier this week, folks were unloading their unwanted art work at the [email protected] for the Art Flip fundraiser. Now the staff has priced and installed the pieces, which are ready for new owners. The show opens from 5-9 p.m. Saturday at 620 First Ave. S, St. Petersburg. [email protected].

GIVE HANDMADE:

ARTFUL HOLIDAY SHOWS

The Dunedin Fine Art Center opened its holiday show, “Starry, Starry Delights,” last weekend during Art Harvest, so I’m willing to bet they had a great weekend. See what its artists have created for the holidays and beyond. 1143 Michigan Blvd. dfac.org.

GRAND OPENING: VINTAGE ROOST

A new spot to find great vintage wares opens in Ybor City this weekend, and it’s an all-female venture. Four women who deal in vintage furniture, home decor and funky finds have come together to open Vintage Roost, which will celebrate its grand opening with a three-day market Friday-Sunday. What’s more, they’ll hold this market on the second and fourth weekends of each month.

Holiday movie guide: From ‘The Grinch’ to ‘Mary Poppins,’ 32 movies to see by year’s end

Tags :

Category : Event , Tampa Bay

The holidays are upon us. Not only because Halloween is past, but also because holiday movies have arrived at a multiplex near you.

The Grinch is here to gripe in Benedict Cumberbatch’s voice about Whoville’s holiday spirit, joining a new version of The Nutcracker that danced its way in last week.

Movie season will come and go without a Star Wars release for the first time since The Force Awakens revived the saga in 2015; you’ll have to wait until December 2019 for Episode IX. But don’t worry. The season is stocked with plenty more familiar faces, including the Potterverse (Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, Nov. 16), a superhero (Aquaman, Dec. 21) and even Mary Poppins, y’all (Mary Poppins Returns, Dec. 19).

Interspersed are the season’s more serious awards season hopefuls, including Netflix’s biggest Oscar contenders yet. The streaming service will release Roma, from Gravity’s Alfonso Cuarón, and The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, an anthology from the Coen brothers, after both won awards on the film festival circuit. In a telling sign of its Oscar dreams, Netflix will give both movies wider theatrical releases before streaming debuts than it ever has before.

Ralph Breaks the Internet

In the Wreck-It Ralph sequel, Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) and Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) head out into the world wide web after finding a router in their arcade.

Robin Hood

It seems like someone comes up with a “new” take on Robin Hood every five to 10 years regardless of whether anyone wants to watch it. This time it’s a “hip,” “modern” (read: automatic weapons) take with Taron Egerton as Robin Hood, Jamie Foxx as Little John and Ben Mendelsohn as the sheriff of Nottingham.

The Front Runner

Watch a presidential campaign implode as Hugh Jackman plays Colorado Sen. Gary Hart, the front-runner for the 1988 Democratic nomination until a sex scandal led him to drop out.

Dec. 7

^ Mary Queen of Scots

Saoirse Ronan plays the titular queen while Margot Robbie is her cousin and rival Queen Elizabeth I.

Anna and the Apocalypse

You know what the holiday season really needs? A Christmas zombie musical. Anna (Ella Hunt) and friends fight, slash and sing their way to survival when zombies attack their small town on Christmas.

Dec. 14

^ Roma

The black-and-white, Spanish-language movie from Oscar winner Alfonso Cuarón (Gravity) is semiautobiographical, chronicling the struggles of a middle class Mexican family in the 1970s. Considered an Oscar best picture contender and likely foreign-language winner, it streams Dec. 14 on Netflix after a limited theatrical release.

There are multiple Spider-Mans (Spider-Men?) in this animated tale of alternate universes colliding, but the main one is high schooler Miles Morales (voice of Shameik Moore), mentee to our old friend Peter Parker.

Mortal Engines

The latest YA dystopia to leap from page to screen is set in a war-ravaged, steampunk world where cities move around on wheels.

Dec. 19

Dec. 21

^ Aquaman

Jason Momoa plays the titular half-human half-merman in the season’s obligatory superhero outing. DC’s film track record has been notoriously atrocious, but here’s hoping Aquaman is as much dumb fun as the trailers look.

Second Act

Can we all just take a minute to appreciate that Jennifer Lopez is finally starring in another rom-com? In the vein of Working Girl, she plays a woman working at a big box store until a case of mistaken identity lands her in a major business deal.

Before R. Kelly’s Tampa show, #MuteRKelly founder Kenyette Barnes explains why she wants to cancel it

Tags :

Category : Event , Tampa Bay

Kenyette Barnes has been trying to silence R. Kelly since her college days in the early 2000s. But only recently has the country started listening.

Barnes, an Atlanta lobbyist and activist, is the founder of #MuteRKelly, a social media movement akin to #MeToo or #TimesUp, designed to diminish the controversial singer’s influence the music world. That includes concerts like the one scheduled for Saturday at the Yuengling Center in Tampa.

Professors and students at the University of South Florida last week launched a petition to have the concert canceled or moved from the Yuengling Center. (It was booked not by the university or the arena’s management company, but as a facility rental by an out-of-state promoter.) Barnes, whose movement has followed R. Kelly in concert for more than a year, swiftly got on board. They’ll keep pressure on university and venue officials up until the show, with a possible protest outside the arena on Saturday.

“This has just happened for too long without any degree of accountability,” Barnes said. “This movement will mobilize these activists to say, ‘Hey, this is not just two or three people, this is a movement.’”

Here’s more of what Barnes had to say about her mission.

How does the #MuteRKelly movement take hold on the ground in any given city?

We have individuals around the country who will let us know if he’s having a show. For the most part, we find out maybe a day before everyone else. Lately they’ve been very quiet about advertising their shows, when in the past, you would know about it and it would be really heavily promoted. I think the stealth nature of the promotion and the advertising of his shows has changed significantly over the year, primarily because they are trying to do these without some sort of protest action. But we’re pretty diligent about finding out what’s going on.

When you say “they,” is R. Kelly doing this all in house? Or is it third-party promotional companies?

“They” are promoters. What we’re finding is that after last year, when #MuteRKelly launched, R. Kelly was being promoted primarily through Live Nation, and now that’s not the case. So in these cities there are local promoters who are taking on the mantle of promoting his shows, and they tend to be very stealth in their advertising. They try to keep the targeted audience very direct, so they’re doing a lot over social media now as opposed to the large-scale promoting they used to do. The promoters, I believe, are aware of the impact of this campaign, and while they don’t want to divest from promoting him — because he is still a moneymaker — they want to not deal with the accountability and the backlash.

You can buy tickets on Ticketmaster, so I don’t think Live Nation is completely able to wash their hands of R. Kelly.

Oh, absolutely not. And that’s something we’ve really been very clear with them on. Live Nation needs to divest from him, Sony needs to divest from him, and RCA. We can’t allow people to continue to make money in whatever way they do and promote such a problematic individual. So while Live Nation has not, on the surface, promoted him since #MuteRKelly started, of course they have their hands in the cookie jar as well.

Is this the first time #MuteRKelly has been involved with a concert on a college campus?

No, the first one was in Chicago. Activists did an amazing job of shutting it down. Because it came from staff within the institution and they really centered the students and the epidemic of sexual violence on college campuses, being able to present that in a very compelling way was one of the reasons why the administration decided to simply cancel the concert. And I’m optimistic that the same thing will happen in Tampa.

What are we to make of the thousands of fans who will come to this show?

People have this uncanny ability to separate the man from the music. Also, we’re dealing with an unspoken truth in the black community, that sexual violence is something you don’t talk about. That it’s something that if it happens to you, you have to examine yourself to see how you got yourself in that situation, as opposed to, “Let’s hold these predators accountable.” And then that is wrapped up in a whole lot of social justice issues, and how black men, who are most likely the perpetrators of black girls, are treated by the judicial system. And then you have this idea that black girls simply are not that affected. One of the things that this movement seeks to do, using R. Kelly as a template, is to say, yes, black girls can be raped. They can be sexually assaulted.

Have you been approached to be involved with campaigns about other artists, like Chris Brown or XXXTentacion?

I’ve had people send me messages saying, “Yeah, we hate XXX, can you help us?” I’m not about censorship. Sometimes music is just really abhorrent, and I might not like it, but I would never censor someone’s music. But I do believe we can censor the behavior.
