Weekend Planner: MMMMBop... Hanson Brothers Are Back

There's also a Frank Zappa Halloween tribute, the Florida Orchestra and it's prime time to hit the Saturday Morning Market.

1.) Hanson at the State: It's been years – decades even – since MMMBop put Hanson on the map. The brothers are older now and have families with kids of their own. But they are still putting out hummable music, which they play Friday at the State. The show begins at 7. Admission is $27-$31. Go
2.) Manhattan Casino: If you plan to be part of the reopening party Friday for the historicManhattan Casino, with the Dizzy Gillespie All-Stars and the Casino All-Stars, you had better already have tickets or some good connections. The event is sold out.
3.) Dick Gregory Back in the Burg: Civil Rights Activist, Comedian and Author Dick Gregory is the headliner for the Give Water Give Life A Comedy Fundraiser. The event takes place Friday from 6-9 p.m. at The Lyceum, 737 3rd Avenue North. The fundraiser sponsored in part by the Community Building Group will help raise money to build reservoirs in West Africa. Tickets are $35 in advance and at door.
4.) Florida Orchestra Plays Mahler: The Florida Orchestra will play Mahler's Symphony #7 Satuday at 8 p.m. at the Mahaffey Theatre. Tickets begin at $15.
5.) Zappaween: Jerry Outlaw and Bogus Pomp bring their Halloween Frank Zapppa tribute back to Jannus Live on Saturday night for one show, beginning at 8 p.m. Tickets are $15.
6.) Downtown Saturday Morning Market: It's harvest time, which means it's the perfect weekend to hit on the state's top farmer's markets, the Downtown Saturday Morning Market at the Al Lang field lot in downtown St. Petersburg. It kicks off by 9 and runs until 2 p.m.
