Plenty of films will screen around town, including some that stretched societal bounds to a documentary about the origins of D.C.'s electricity. BloomScreen and Citizens Climate Lobby present The Last Mountain, a 2011 Sundance Film Festival Official Selection that looks at the controversial methods of coal mining and the effects of mountaintop removal in West Virginia on the lives of local residents. BloomBars. 7 p.m. $10 suggested donation.

West End Cinema hosts a lecture on Ten Films that Changed America, with Yale and John Hopkins professor Marc Lapadula, featuring commentary and clips from The Jazz Singer, Easy Rider, Annie Hall, and others. 7 p.m.

Marilyn Manson's show at the Fillmore is sold out tonight, but the rocker's new album, Born Villain, off Cooking Vinyl Records, drops today. Johnny Depp appears in a rendition of Carly Simon's "You're So Vain," a track on the album.

Brooklyn psych-dub-pop trio Bear in Heaven's newly released album, I Love You, It's Cool's "danceable medley of surreal jams" is reminiscent of the '80's and easy days. They perform with Blouse and Doldrums at Black Cat. 8 p.m. $10/$12.
