Weekend preview: Who's afraid of triskaidekaphobia?

Do things seem a little off to you, too? The Miami Heat struggling? David Beckham getting the cold shoulder? The Brazilian-American Chamber of Commerce of Florida hosting their World Cup watch party at Miami’s Fado, an Irish pub?

That this kookiness comes with the approach of that rare combination of a full moon on Friday the 13th (not scheduled again until Aug. 13, 2049) may be cause to remain homebound this weekend with an extra severe case of triskaidekaphobia, even for those who can’t spell it (yes, we looked it up).

But does Ray Allen fear the big shot? Does the U.S. men’s soccer team fear Ghana, Portugal or Germany? Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?

Let’s go out on Friday and show the fates where they can stick it.

PENNY FOR YOUR THOUGHTS
The Spam Allstars bring their funky, electronic descarga sound to the Brickell-area hang Blackbird Ordinary (729 SW First Ave., Miami) on Friday, offering cuts from a sixth album, tentatively titled “yet to be titled.” In heavy rotation in this office has been the video for the new song, “Cosquillita,” recorded at City of Progress in North Miami (visuals created by video artist and electronic musician Juan Maristany). The song is relentlessly infectious, and any video that incorporates Lil Penny Hardaway is the definition of awesome. Info: 305-671-3307, BlackbirdOrdinary.com; SpamAllstars.com.

LUNAR LANDING SPOT
The Fort Lauderdale Beach restaurant-bar known as Beauty & the Feast at the Atlantic Hotel & Spa (601 N. Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd.) will throw caution to the wind with a Friday full moon party on the terrace beginning at 5 p.m., with more ambient light provided by fire dancers and the glow produced by a menu of specialty cocktails. RSVP requested: Society8.com.

LUAU WOW
The Hukilau, the annual weekend celebration of high-powered drinks and cornea-melting tropical shirts known as the Hukilau goes into overdrive Friday night with the main event at the Bahia Mar on Fort Lauderdale beach offering performances by the Smokin’ Menehunes, the Sweet Hollywaiians, Grinder Nova, burlesque dancer Angie Pontani and a solo performance by MeduSirena the Fire Eating Mermaid. Tickets: TheHukilau.com. If you just want to dip a toe into this event, you can catch the weekly MeduSirena show visible from the Wreck Bar in the Yankee Clipper (known by sticklers for using actual names as the Sheraton Fort Lauderdale Beach Hotel). The Wreck Bar opens at 5:30 p.m., with the show at 6:30. Info: MeduSirena.com.

A BALL WITH CAP
John “Cap” Caparulo is well known for his blue-collar, Everyman act, illustrated by his anti-fashion statement ball caps and schlumpy shirts. But that’s also what ESPN star Dan Le Batard wore to the first home game of the NBA Finals, and he pulls down major coin. Are we being worked? It’s all so confusing. But Caparulo was legitimately funny in last fall’s Netflix special “John Caparulo: Come Inside Me.” Hear more Thursday through Sunday at the Palm Beach Improv in West Palm Beach. Tickets: $22. Info: 561-833-1812, PalmBeach.Improv.com.

GET CATFISHED
Broward County beach bard Catfish Hunter will show off his new album, “The Treasure Trove,” at 9 p.m. Saturday at the disc's namesake bar a couple of blocks south of Las Olas on Fort Lauderdale beach (2933 SE Fifth St.; 954-522-8385). It is not going out on too long a limb to predict a uniquely raucous night will ensue. Info: CFHMusic.com.

TALKIN' FRIDAY MOVIES
As Treasure Trove regulars may know, two of Hunter's favorite songs to cover are Bob Dylan’s “Tangled Up in Blue” and Fred Neil’s “Everybody’s Talkin’.” The latter, of course, was made famous by Harry Nilsson on the soundtrack for “Midnight Cowboy,” which happens to be screening on June 20 during the BaCA Movie Lounge film-and-conversation series at Bailey Contemporary Arts in Pompano Beach. This Friday, you can catch “I Shot Andy Warhol.” Admission is free, though donations happily accepted. Info: BaCAPompano.org.

FORECAST: EVERCLEAR
Be Careful What You Ask For” is the rousing single from “Invisible Stars,” the most recent release from Portland-spawned alt-rockers Everclear, still led by founder Art Alexakis, the brains behind the Summerland Tour that opens Friday at the Pompano Beach Amphitheatre. Fans of the gritty brand of college-radio music that coursed through the ’90s will want to catch this bill that includes Soul Asylum, Eve 6 and Spacehog. Tickets begin at a wallet-friendly $16.25. Info: SummerlandTour.net.

BEER TO GO
Something to check out this weekend: Due South Brewing (2900 High Ridge Road, Boynton Beach) is now offering its beer in 32-ounce aluminum “Crowlers,” replacing the more traditional glass growler. The advantages include the fact that they don’t break (good around pools), weigh less, block light and are recyclable. Due South will give you the Crowler free when you pay to fill it, and they say the beer inside should keep for about three months. Info: DueSouthBrewing.com

MATT MURPHY BY THE SEA
Blues great Matt “Guitar” Murphy will make one of his rare local appearances from 5 to 9 p.m. Sunday at the Dania Beach Bar and Grill (65 N. Beach Road, Hollywood), joined by the fiery Joel DaSilva and others. Info: 954-923-4148, Facebook.com/daniabeachbargrillmusic.

WEEKEND PLAYLIST
Plantation native Jacob Jeffries last week released the six-song EP “Neighborhood Nights,” which he’s taking for a spin on a national tour. The collection is what we’ve come to expect from this young songwriting craftsman: sturdily made pop tunes that linger pleasingly in your ear and make some kind of breakout for Jeffries seem even more inevitable. Look for “Neighborhood Nights” on iTunes, and get more information at Facebook.com/JacobJeffriesBand. Here's Jeffries doing one of the songs on the EP, "Looking for Love."

LOOKING AHEAD  
Two spots you never thought you’d see in the same sentence will collaborate on an event next week that has delicious possibilities. The Funky Buddha Brewery in Oakland Park and Beauty & the Feast at the Atlantic Hotel will pair up for a five-course seated Dinner Under the Stars beer pairing 7-10 p.m. June 19 at the terrace restaurant (601 N. Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd.). Tickets are $49, which gets you: Beauty & the Feast’s crispy chicken sliders and meatballs, paired with Funky Buddha’s Combat Rock Amber Ale; pork spring rolls, paired with Floridian Wheat Ale; an eggplant stack, with the brewery’s limited-release Passionfruit Crusher;  short rib and seared scallop surf ‘n’ turf, with Vanilla OP Porter; and carrot cake with vanilla gelato, paired with Muy Bonita Imperial Apple Pie Brown Ale. Info: 954-567-8070, Society8.com.

SWEET MASH-UP
The Grammy-winning, Jamaican-bred Inner Circle goes north for a Saturday show at the Funky Biscuit (303 SE Mizner Blvd., Boca Raton), joined by genre-defying Suenalo’s mash-up of Afro-Cuban funk and electronic-edged hip-hop. A double bill not to be missed. Tickets: $15. Info: 561-395-2929, FunkyBiscuit.com.

MORE ENRIQUE, PITBULL
Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday for AEGLive’s Enrique Iglesias-Pitbull tour, which just added a Miami date at AmericanAirlines Arena on Oct. 26. Previously, the tour, which has grown even hotter with the club and chart success of EI’s single “Bailando,” ended Oct. 25 at Hard Rock Live in Hollywood. That show is sold-out. Tickets to the Miami show cost $99.50-$179.50 at all Ticketmaster outlets. Colombian reggaeton singer J. Balvin will open both shows. Info: AEGLive.com, EnriqueIglesias.com, PitbullMusic.com.

MATISYAHU NEWS
Reminder: Complicated and Grammy-nominated rap-reggae toastmaster Matisyahu released his album “Akeda” this week with the announcement of a 40-date tour that stops at Boca Raton’s Mizner Park Amphitheatre on Nov. 8. Tickets for the show cost $35 and go on sale 10 a.m. June 13 at LiveNation.com, all Ticketmaster outlets and 800-745-3000. Radical Something is the opening act. Matisyahu will be engaging in meet-and-greets on his tour and is offering passes via a @Matisyahu Retweet Contest. More info: MatisyahuWorld.com/akedaretweet.
