JOHNNY BE GOOD: Ink-sporting, gee-tar shredding, Texas blues-rock virtuoso Johnny Winter has to play sitting down these days – kind of how Ella Fitzgerald was parked in a chair for her final concerts – but his way with the blues is no less down and dirty for it. He kicks off a three-week residency at B.B. King’s tonight, with rabble-rouser Popa Chubby opening. 8PM

HELLO, DOLLY: Some might argue that Dolly Parton already gives off a whiff of drag queen (and we have no doubt she’d be flattered by that), so when trans performer Our Lady J presents the third annual Gospel of Dolly show at Joe’s Pub – a celebration of Parton’s gospel oeuvre, featuring the Train-to-Kill Gospel Choir – it’s all very meta, somehow. 7:30, 9:30PM

MAGIC HAT: The lineup at the long-running Monday Night Magic show reads like a who's who of the current magic scene -- which, admittedly, is a fairly short list; this is the best place to see feats of illusion outside of Las Vegas. Theatres at Bleecker, 8PM.
