Do It Today: Green St. Pete, Boogie Woogie Blues and Last-Chance Sideshow

Last Chance: Sideshow with Postage Due. Lori Ballard's mixed-media circus sideshow banners are hugely compelling and Steve Smith's "anti-stamp" prints are both witty and artful — all in all, a small show that packs a big visual wallop, and today's your last day to see it. 10 a.m.-4 p.m., HCC-Ybor Art Gallery Ybor Performing Arts Building, Palm Ave and 15th Street, Ybor City, free admission, 813-253-7674.

Boogie Woogie/Blues Piano Stomp with Bob Seeley, Liz Pennock & Dr. Blues. If you’ve never experienced a boogie woogie master doing business at an acoustic piano, let’s just say it’s something to behold. The adrenalized blues style is more or less a lost art, but a few folks hang in there to keep it alive, among them Detroit-based Bob Seeley, who’s 80 but has the chops of a kid. 7:30 p.m., Side Door Room at Palladium Theater, St. Petersburg, $12; $15 at the door.
