*FILM: Director of The Greatest Silence: Rape in the Congo, Lisa F. Jackson, appear in person to screen and discuss her film that documents, according to LS, "the many tens of thousands of women and girls who have been systematically kidnapped, raped, mutilated and tortured by soldiers from both foreign militias and the Congolese army." (We look forward to a similar production on the same subject about Iraqi women.)
MUSIC: A staple among the waxed chest set and drag queen clans, tonight this SOMA hot spot, the Stud, showcases live punk bands Ghost Echoes and Apple Pie Float. All proceeds go to the anti-war march/party happening on March 19.
9 p.m. // The Stud [399 - 9th Street] // $5-$10 (sliding scale)
CLUB: Sure, the mildly-chic (literally) underground nightclub Vessel gets a bad rap, but they also score some decent DJs. Take, for example, tonight's lineup of DJ Dan, co-creator of the West Coast house sound, we're told. He mans the decks tonight along with DJs Rooz and Vahid.
The listed events were chosen by the editors of SFist and brought to you by the 2009 Toyota Corolla.7 p.m. // Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Screening Room [701 Mission] // $6-$8
