"One Billion Rising," rally & march to end violence against women
TAKES ALL KINDS | Next week, as usual, it’ll be difficult to escape the Valentine’s madness occurring everywhere. Empire tabs DJ KURT BAKER to make a mod night of it all, while DJ NAN’L and the Slainte dance night duo of DJs TREMENDOUS CREAM and MARIEKE VI join forces at Flask. Among other interpretations, HOLLY DANGER unveils a flashy burlesque night at Geno’s (625 Congress St., 9 pm, $5), actor Bess Welden performs a complex ode to self-love in BIG MOUTH THUNDER THIGHS (at Portland Stage Company’s Studio Theater, 25A Forest Ave, 8 pm; $15), and the human rights organization ONE BILLION RISING rallies its local supporters in Monument Square for a march to end violence against women beginning at 12:30. Love is real.
