Do It Today: Warped Tour at the theater, Devil's Backbone at the Dali, coffee and art at DFAC, Sunny premiere party in Tampa

This week's installment in the Dalí & Beyond Film Series is another spooky melodrama from Guillermo del Toro, Devil’s Backbone, about Carlos, who is abandoned at an isolated orphanage during the Spanish Civil War. Thu., Sept. 17, 6 p.m., Salvador Dali Museum, 1000 Third St. S., St. Petersburg, $5 after 5 p.m.

We might not be lucky enough to lounge around eating bon-bons, buying Picassos for our art collections all day, but once a month, DFAC lets us pretend that we are at the Coffee and Conversation series. Enjoy stimualting (and free!) java, and a discussion with artist Viv Ruegger, who waxes artistic on "Watermedia on Yupo Board." Thu., Sept. 17, 12 p.m., Dunedin Fine Arts Center, 1143 Michigan Blvd., Dunedin,

At the It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia watch party, you can play to win a $25 bar tab in a Sunny trivia contest, 'MNF's Saturday Asylum DJ Sei picks the jams, and watch the epic 10th season premiere on every TV in the bar. Thu., Sept. 17, 8 p.m., Karma Bar, 206 N. Morgan Street, Tampa.

If you thought Warped Tour was over, think again. For one night only, movie theaters across America screen the Vans Warped Tour 15th Anniversary Celebration, a two-hour tribute to the beloved music fest and its talented artists. Warped Tour is often associated with punk music and culture, but this showcases the diverse bands that have not only played the outdoor concert, but become known because of it. The screening includes live performances, red-carpet clips and behind the scenes footage from artists like NOFX (pictured), Bad Religion, Blink-182, Ice T, Katy Perry, All-American Rejects, The Aggrolites, Underoath and more. Warped fans can get a glimpse into the lives of their favorite bands, and all in the comfort of air conditioning. Now that’s what I’m talking about! Thurs., Sept. 17, 8 p.m., Citrus Park Stadium 20, 7999 Citrus Park Town Center Mall, Tampa, 12.50, visit for a full list of participating theaters. – Lily Reisman
