MOVIES

A Trip to the Moon Even in its well-worn state, George Méliès' classic 1902 fantasy film "A Trip to the Moon" is a visual wonder, with imaginative sets and surprising special effects. Here is a chance to see a newly restored version of an original hand-colored print, along with a program of other early film experiments. Samuel Goldwyn Theater, 8949 Wilshire Blvd., Beverly Hills. 7:30 p.m. $5. (310) 247-3600. http://www.oscars.org.

THEATER

Rob Zabrecky The Possum Dixon front man-turned-prestidigitator performs his second full-length, one-man variety show. Expect highlights from his award-nominated Magic Castle act, song and dance, conversations with outmoded satellites, audience interaction, parapsychology, and more. The Steve Allen Theater, 4773 Hollywood Blvd., L.A. 8 p.m. $12. (323) 666-4268; http://www.steveallentheater.com.

MUSIC

Tommy Keene The D.C. native, acclaimed for his blend of new wave and power pop in the '80s, has worked with Robert Pollard and Paul Westerberg but never gained widespread commercial success. All the more reason to catch his brash guitar work and huge pop hooks when he plays L.A. Silverlake Lounge, 2906 W. Sunset Blvd., L.A. 9 p.m. $10. Foldsilverlake.com.

Barrio Tiger The L.A. punk band adheres to the brash, short and dirty side of the genre, and is known for its particularly incendiary live sets. At the Redwood, expect the spittle and booze to fly when songs from its new EP "Laugh Now, Cry Later" get their due. Redwood, 316 W. 2nd St., L.A. 9 p.m. $5. (213) 680-2600.
