HIDDEN HISTORY: What do you get when you put a noted historian (Howard Zinn) in a room at MoMA with a boldface posse (Viggo Mortensen, Marisa Tomei, Danny Glover, Rosario Dawson), and a multimedia extravaganza documenting the unheard voices of history? Were not sure, but it sounds big. The People Speak is at 7PM.
BUZZED: Go see Lissie Trully - she of that catchy ditty "Self-Taught Learner" that's floating around the intertubes - play an intimate show at Mercury Lounge before she gets all Amy Winehouse-big, with the huge rooms and the presales. 7:30PM.
NOIR IS THE NEW BLACK: Spend an evening with The Big Sleep as a panel of noir-o-philes deconstruct and pay homage to Raymond Chandler's classic 1939 novel at Symphony Space. 7:30PM.
