To do today: Foreigner, Jon Faddis and "Weird Florida"


Foreigner: Foreigner will let 'er rip 8 tonight at Hard Rock Live at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. The group's album sales exceed 70 million, with multiplatinum songs that include "Cold As Ice," "Juke Box Hero," and "I Want To Know What Love Is." The group's latest album, which came out in 2011, is called "Feels Like the First Time" and consists of original and unplugged versions of Foreigner's greatest hits. $44-$74. — Nick Sortal

Jon Faddis: My introduction to jazz trumpeter Faddis came a long time ago, back in the '90s, perhaps his "To Diz With Love" tour, and the memory of his magical, muscular way with a high note, and his stylish swagger, has lingered ever since. Faddis, who has played in bands led by Charles Mingus, Dizzy Gillespie and Lionel Hampton, will perform with his quartet at 7:45 p.m. at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, a concert presented by the Gold Coast Jazz Society. $40. 954-462-0222 or — Ben Crandell


Weird Florida: On the Road Again: Locals may be inured to South Florida's peculiar brand of subtropical wackiness (don't mess with us, Skunk Ape), but longtime Florida historian Charlie Carlson isn't one of them. The 68-year-old documentarian, accompanied by his brown boxer, Lady Isabel, are again training cameras on South Florida's most-bizarre attractions for his PBS documentary, premiering 8 p.m. Wednesday on WLRN-Ch. 17. A sequel to WLRN's "Weird Florida: Roads Less Traveled," Carlson's doc visits a West Palm Beach underwater graveyard, a knife-throwing daredevil and an underground tin bunker built for President John F. Kennedy. — Phillip Valys
