Five Things To Do Today

1. Start your Monday with some good old fashioned absurdity  – check out Rockafire Explosion, an animatronic band of animals (formerly of ShowBiz Pizza Place restaurants) who are enjoying a YouTube revival with performances of anything from the White Stripes’ “Conquest,” to Shakira’s “Hips Don’t Lie” to Usher’s “Love in this Club.” Pictured: Comedian/cymbalist Rolfe deWolfe.

2. See the Girlie Show at the Studio at 620.

3. Listen to “Id Engager,” the new single from Of Montreal’s forthcoming release, Skeletal Lamping.

4.  For tonight’s edition of Poets Live! at Largo Library, the group focuses on the late poet William Stafford and the topic “Order.”  

5. Night three of the 2008 Summer  Olympic Games on NBC includes gymnastics (men’s team final), swimming (men’s 200m free, men and women’s 100m back, and women’s breaststroke final), women’s beach volleyball (a U.S. match) and men’s diving (platform synchronized final).
