DON'T LET ME BE MISUNDERSTOOD: Hopefully this message comes across loud and clear: Tonight you absolutely must see "Simply Nina" at the African American Art & Culture Complex. The exhibit presents a collection of works by independent artists that celebrate the art and legacy of Dr. Nina Simone. [SF Weekly]
OPEN YOUR EARS, HUMANOIDS: Take a listen at one of the great voices of classic hip hop, Del Tha Funky Homosapien. He may be Ice Cube's cousin, but his act is less gangsta-turned-family-moviestar, more humor and quirk, including a guest appearance on the Gorillaz hit single, Clint Eastwood. Catch the show at the Great American Music Hall at 9 p.m.
IN SOVIET RUSSIA, FILM WATCHES YOU: Goofy, simplistic internet memes aside, take some time out tonight to watch Victory Day, a dramatic thriller set in Eastern Europe and Russia from the 1990s. A correspondent just thrown out of Russia meets up with a small town girl trafficked into prostitution and pursue a rich oligarch involved in both their pasts. Catch it tonight at the Lumiere Theatre at 5, 7:15, and 9:40 p.m. Screening ends this Thursday.
