Happy Hour: Cool off after a hot day with a beer at The Bards. The traditional Irish bar serves up the best happy hour in town with specials on wines, beer flights, well drinks and signature drinks, all under $6. Stick around for quizzo at 10 p.m. with Philly’s own, Johnny Good Times. The Bards, 2013 Walnut St., Philadelphia, Pa. 19103, +21, 5 p.m.

Kings of Leon: From “Sex on Fire” to “Use Somebody,” Kings of Leon have been churning out hit after hit on the pop-rock charts. See the Tennessee natives tonight at the Susquehanna Bank Center and be sure to bring a friend, grab a beer and rock out all night. Susquehanna Bank Center, 1 Harbour Boulevard, Camden, Nj. 08103, $36.50, 7:30 p.m.

Comedy at Helium: You know him from Titus and several Comedy Central specials, now see Christopher Titus tonight at Helium. He’s been doing stand-up for more than 20 years and his jokes about common oddities have audiences cracking up from town to town. From almost dying as a teen, Titus finds humor in all issues dubbed taboo such as abuse, divorce and death. A little weird you might say, but we guarantee, you’ll be laughing all night long. Helium Comedy Club, 2031 Sansom Street, Philadelphia, Pa. 19103, +21, $22, 8 p.m.
