INNOCENCE LOST: The Innocent Criminals may have lost their innocence long ago but Ben Harper can still put on a show. Be sure to avoid them over the hill dot commies who have no rhythm, and enjoy as Ben Harper takes the stage at The Fillmore, 1805 Geary Blvd., in San Francisco. Tickets are still available from Tickets Now.
MORE THAN JUST FUNNY: Sometimes a stand up comedian just won't cut it. But if you throw in some slam poets and a musician or two, then we're talking. Butch Escobar does just that as he brings his Unfiltered Underground to The Improv, 62 S 2nd St., in San Jose at 8 p.m.
UNHEALTHY OBSESSION? Obsessed with looking in the mirror? Or maybe you're just tired of seeing Angelina Jolie on the cover of every magazine in the store. Then you check out "America The Beautiful," which will be screened at the Landmark's Clay Theatre, 2261 Fillmore St., in San Francisco at 6:30 p.m. Director Darryl Roberts will be on hand to discuss his movie, which explores America's obsession with beauty. Tickets are available from Brown Paper Tickets.
