Making plans? Short on ideas? No worries. See Nicole Cammorata, Milva DiDomizio, and June Wulff's picks for the top things to do around the Hub this weekend. Now get out and go to it!



HAPPY FEET AND FLICK: Before you meet Mumble, Gloria, and their son, Erik, in “Happy Feet 2,” bring a picnic, hosey your lawn spot, play a few games, and grab free food samples and other giveaways at Free Friday Flicks. Sundown (6 p.m. activities; check website for summer schedule; call if inclement weather). Free. DCR Hatch Memorial Shell, Esplanade, Boston. 617-787-7200.

AVICII: Somewhat of a wunderkind of the club scene, this 22-year-old Grammy-nominated DJ and producer has been away from his native Sweden while touring nonstop in recent years. Avicii will make a stop in Boston at the TD Garden as part of his Levels Tour. Morgan Page and Pleasurekraft will also perform. June 15, 8 p.m. Tickets: $29.50- $75.00. All ages. TD Garden. 617-624-1050,

SUPAH STAH FRIDAYS: Red Sky plays host to DJ Kev C’s Supah Stah Fridays, a weekly dance party of Top 40 hits, house music, and mash-ups. If all that dancing makes you work up an appetite, you’ve come to the right place: Red Sky keeps the kitchen cranking until 1 a.m. June 15. No cover. 21+ Red Sky, 617-742-3333,


DJ LADY SPINDRIFT: Every Saturday night at OM in Harvard Sqaure, Boston-based DJ Lady Spindrift (nee Rachel Cayabyab) spins a blend of Top 40, mash-ups, and dance re-mixes. June 16, 10:30 p.m. No cover. 21+ OM Restaurant and Lounge. 617-576-2800,

HYPER-LOCAL CRAFT BREW TASTINGS: Don’t just shop and eat local. Drink local, too. Don’t know where to start? How about a tasting sponsored by the Sustainable Business Network of Greater Boston? Sample beer, wine, mead, and cider made with locally sourced hops, barley, wheat, fruit, herbs, teas, chocolates, and other ingredients. June 16, 3-6 p.m. and 7-10 p.m. $30 each. Arts at the Armory, 191 Highland Ave., Somerville.

AFRICAN FESTIVAL 2012: Rumbafrica headlines an annual festival of African arts and culture with Soukous music and dance. The festivities include drumming, music, dance, crafts, and traditional food. June 16, 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Sampas Pavilion, Pawtucket Blvd., Lowell.


MAKE YOUR WAY: Bring the kids to this exhibit by Nancy Schön because they’ll be able to sit on a few of the life-size animal sculptures by the “Make Way for Ducklings” artist. The Kolbo Fine Judaica Gallery exhibit also includes maquettes (today’s favorite word: small models) of Schön’s Ducklings and the Tortoise and Hare, plus works created during the artist’s time in Israel. June 17 reception from 2-6 p.m. (through Aug. 17). Kolbo Fine Judaica Gallery, 437 Harvard St., Brookline. 617-731-8743.

LIZA WITH A Z: Russian actress Actress Chulpan Khamatova and Bolshoi Theater soloist Andrei Merkuriev perform an updated version of this classic love story with all the key ingredients -- seduction, betrayal, and social conflict. “Poor Liza” is based on Nikolay Karamzin’s novel about a peasant girl and the nobleman who chases and chucks her. June 17 at p.m. $55-$95. John Hancock Hall, 180 Berkeley St., Boston.
