Cinefamily at the Silent Movie Theatre, 611 N. Fairfax Ave. 8 p.m. $10. http://www.cinefamily.org/.

Tony Russell In the grand tradition of the swinging Las Vegas lounge acts of the 1960s, jazz funnyman Tony Russell will perform his show "You Shoulda Been There."

MOVIES

Victory Day The Victory Day Project, a collective of media professionals, presents a screening of a new feature film that examines the causes and ramifications behind the epidemic of human trafficking in Eastern Europe. Shot in Russia, the Czech Republic and Australia, the globe-trotting film depicts the plight of a subjugated small-town girl in search of her freedom. The Downtown Independent, 251 S. Main St., Downtown. 7 p.m. $10. (213) 617-1033. http://www.downtownindependent.com.

POP MUSIC

Iron & Wine The title of Sam Beam's latest, "Kiss Each Other Clean," sounds as if it would fit nicely in his sepia-toned early folk catalog. But instead, it shows the diversity of his skills as an arranger, finding room for all stripes of rock and some eclectic world influences alongside his increasingly elastic croon. With the Low Anthem. The Wiltern, 3790 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles. 7 p.m. $25. (213) 388-1400.
