MUSIC: Quebecoise indie-rock darlings Islands perform over in North Beach tonight. SF Weekly describes them, or one of them, as "neo-vaudevillian." To which we say, we just don't get music writing anymore. (Our fault entirely! We're slow in the head.) But this is how we shall describe them: if you love Arcade Fire, you're love Islands. Ta-da. Anyway, Despot and Crayonsmith for these stellar of-the-moment rock outfit.

9 p.m. // Bimbo's (1025 Columbus) // 18-20

FILM: screens at the Roxie tonight. This flick that won Best Film at the Hollywood Black Film Festival tells the charming tale about a black guy who -- get this! -- is into stuff white people like. Silly negro.

7 p.m., 9 p.m. // Roxie (3117 - 16th Street) // 8.50

CRAFT: What better way to submit to domestic bliss than by knitting booties for your future grandkids at tonight's Monday Night Knit in the Castro. Straight, queer, on the DL, or asexual -- everyone is welcome at tonight's crocheting fibrous fun fest. For both beginners and advance.

7 p.m. // Three Dollar Bill Cafe (1800 Market) // free
