If the Little Mermaid song “Unda Da Sea” makes your mouth water, you probably have some odd repressed childhood issues, but you won’t need to worry about that this weekend during the Great Inland Seafood Festival! Enjoy your fill of shrimp, lobster, crawfish, oysters, salmon, crab and more of Ariel’s aquatic friends at Newport on the Levee from 5-11 p.m. tonight. Admission is free and the seafood smorgasbord continues through Sunday. Each night features live music and a special on Whole Main Lobsters: just $10.95 a pop! Sorry, Sebastian.

Comedian Mark Eddie kicks off his four-night run at Funny Bone on the Levee tonight. A professional musician for more than a decade, Eddie performed storytelling songs which led him to try musical comedy. In addition to playing guitar, Eddie has a knack for impersonations, imitating everything from celebrities and singers to children’s characters and random noises. Tonight’s show begins at 8 p.m.

Welsh musician Gruff Rhys, of Super Furry Animals fame, makes a stop at the Contemporary Arts Center tonight for a unique and super rare performance. As part of his “investigative tour of the Americas,” Rhys will perform at 8 p.m. before bringing Cincinnati native and Hip Hop producer Boom Bip onstage. Boom Bip will play a DJ set as the CAC transforms into a dance party. Anticipate lots of fun surprises from these two!

Well, there’s really no other way to say it: Whisky Bar hosts the “baddest little show on Earth” tonight with Extreme Midget Wrestling. Tickets to the 9 p.m. show are $20 at the door, $25 “ringside.” Don’t worry, the event poster assures “We support anti-bullying campaigns.”

Ongoing events: Hamilton County Fair, It's Commonly Jazz at Eden Park, College Hill Block Party, Salsa on the Square with Kandela, Jazz in the Park with Steve Schmidt.
