Black Math
9:30 p.m. at Hideout; $8
Hissing intimacies of underground '80s new-wave cassette days, these local bedroom popsters spend much of their time shrouding their vocals and synths in Depeche Mode brood and songs about "Reckless Thoughts" and a "Bottomless Sea." But if you stick with the lo-fi catharsis long enough, the band will treat you to sunshine-reverb punk shakers that could be Jesus and Mary Chain B-sides.

Italian Cinema Night
7 p.m. at Salute Wine Bar
Every Thursday, this Gold Coast wine bar shows a classic Italian film, offering half-price pizzas to those who choose to partake in the cinematic experience. February is Sophia Loren Month, beginning tonight with "Two Women," for which Loren won an Academy Award for Best Actress (the first to win one for a non-English-speaking performance). If you can't make it tonight, consider the upcoming films: "Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow" (February 11), "Marriage Italian Style" (February 18) and "Houseboat" (February 25).

Faces of Poverty
5:30-8 p.m. at Black Walnut Gallery
Police officers see things differently from the rest of the population -- including poverty. Their views are the focus of this photo exhibit, which displays the work of those pursuing a master's degree in police psychology at the Adler School of Professional Psychology. Participants were asked to take photos at the beginning and end of a course, and the results show much about the officers' journeys. The exhibit event, which will include cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, is open to the public, but an email RSVP to jpssj@adler.edu is encouraged.
