MUSIC: Surprisingly, there are still tickets left as of this posting to see the adorable Stephen Malkmus, and the his band, The Jicks at Slim's tonight, as part of Noise Pop. Their latest album, Mirror Traffic, ranges from "hard-rocking political commentary ("Senator"), to touching, winsome folk ("No One Is"), to virtuosic but melancholy and contrite kiwi pop ("Stick Figures In Love"). (8 p.m., Slim's, 333 11th Street)

BENEFIT: Cabaret starlet Carly Ozard and Joe Wicht, also known as Trauma Flintstone, host Accentuate the PAWSitive, a fundraiser for PAWS and a send-off for Ozard, who's moving to New York. The event features a long line-up of Ozard's musical friends and influences, including members of 42nd. St. Moon, The Lamplighters, Metropolitan Community Church, Most Holy Redeemer, Martuni’s, The Rrazz Room, The Hotel Utah, and the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus, along with a very special Aerial performance by Jenny Atomik.

COMEDY: Catch Will Durst and Friends every Tuesday through November in Elect To Laugh, "a hysterical hybrid chasing down the presidential election cycle like white on rice with material as up to date as the latest tweet from DC." The show aims to blur the traditional boundaries between stand-up comedy and theater, while "accessing the topical via the jugular." (8 p.m., The Marsh San Francisco, 1062 Valencia Street)
