1. Red Green, who became famous for such things as duct tape, Possum Lodge and his own unique style of humor and wisdom on Canada's much funnier answer to Home Improvement, will throw on his suspenders and share his thoughts on "How To Do Everything" at 7 p.m. in the Rialto Theater. After establishing himself as one of the world's handiest men in 15 seasons of his enormously popular television show, far-north fixture of fix-it now demonstrates that there is no limit to his specialized knowledge and advice.

2. Lakewood Community Jazz Band, under the direction of Syd Potter, returns to the Rhythm and Rye at 8 p.m. for a jazz show you can dance to.

3. Guitarist Rafael Tranquilino incorporates blues, funk, rock, funk, ska, metal, reggae, Latin and jazz-fusion. As accomplished as he is varied, Tranquilino can be seen every Monday night as host of Stonegate Pizza's rockin' blues, if not experimental, jam at 8:30 p.m.

4. Alaska garage rock band Dead Language joins Otem Relick and Nighttime Schoolbus for a 9 p.m. show at Le Voyeur.

5. The New Frontier Lounge isn't The Five Spot on Cooper Square. Then again, it doesn't sit in the East Village of the 1950s either. But, grab the corner bar stool at 9 p.m. in The New Frontier, nurse a double bourbon, close your eyes and let pianist Nate Dybevik, bassist Arneson Cameron and drummer Peter Tietjen take you to the famous New York City jazz club over the din of the drinking Tacoma crowd.
