Do It Today: Suncoast AIDS Theatre Project's Sordid Lives at American Stage, and Coliseum at Transitions Art Gallery

American Stage’s June After Hours Series includes Prelude to Pride: Sixth Annual Night of Alternative Theatre, presented by The Suncoast AIDS Theatre Project. This year's departure from the mainstream is Del Shores’ Sordid Lives. The dark dramedy explores the dynamic and dysfunction of a Southern fried Bible Belt family that reunites after Grandma Peggy's untimely departure — that is, she died tripping over her lover’s wooden legs. Proceeds from the show benefit the Metro Wellness and Community Center. (Pictured: Joey Panek stars in Sordid Lives) 7:30 p.m., Mon. June 28, pay-what-you-can at the door or $15 in advance,  American Stage Theatre Company, 163 Third St. N., St. Petersburg, —Lily Reisman

Louisville heavy rockin’ trio Coliseum have made a lot of changes in the three years since they released their second album — new label, new producers and engineers, new drummer — and hit town to promote their third full-length and first for Temporary Residence, House With A Curse. The band’s overall fast and heavy sound is marked by big riffage and the deep resounding vocals of frontman Ryan Patterson, who delivers the lyrics in a rusted bellow. Burning Love, Capsule and Devout open. 8 p.m. Mon., June 28, Transitions Gallery @ Skatepark of Tampa, $8, —Leilani Polk
