It’s too wet at Zilker Park for this Wednesday’s Blues on the Green, Austin’s largest free concert series,  and it looks like it’s still going to be wet and cloudy at least throughout this weekend.

The forecast shows chances of rain until Thursday night, with even higher chances for rain on Saturday.

Try not to let the weather get to you though. In lieu of Blues on the Green, here are some ways you can spend your Wednesday instead:

  • Regis Philbin and Don Rickles, 7 p.m. at Paramount Theatre, 713 Congress Ave.
    Don Rickles and Regis Philbin.

    Don Rickles and Regis Philbin.

    It may not be live music, but comedians Regis Philbin and Don Rickles are slated to perform on Wednesday.
