Michael Deeds recommends

John Caparulo: Friday through Sunday, Liquid Laughs. A past favorite on “Chelsea Lately,” he’s also performed stand-up on “The Tonight Show,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and his own one-hour special, “Meet Cap,” which was featured on Comedy Central.

Kyle Gass Band: Sunday, Knitting Factory. For one thing, it’s a free show. For another, Gass is half of Grammy-winning comedic metal band Tenacious D.

Red Fang: Thursday, Neurolux. The Portland band is regarded as a heavy metal act, but there’s plenty of stoner grunge in the group’s sledgehammer sound.
