THEATER: It's the first preview night of Dead Man's Cell Phone, a comedy about "a woman forced to confront her own assumptions about morality, redemption, and the need to connect in a technologically obsessed world." The play, which runs through June 13, was written by Sarah Ruhl, recipient of a MacArthur "Genius" Grant and Pulitzer Prize finalist for her play The Clean House.

8 p.m. // The SF Playhouse (533 Sutter St) // $30

MUSIC: Her Space Holiday, City Light, Boy in Static, and Hanni el Khatib bring you a night of indie rock -- some of it poppy, some of it twee, some of it slightly off-key, and some of it trashy/garage-y. (Honestly, we think opener Hanni el Khatib is the one to watch in this line-up.)

9 p.m. // Bottom of the Hill (1233 17th St) // $12

COMEDY: "Expect gut-wrenching, unbridled, in your face, comedy fun" at the weekly Bad Etiquette Comedy Jam, which features 14 local up-and-coming comedians and is hosted by freestyle emcee F.L.O.
