Got the perfect Dr. Funkenstein getup and no idea where to wear it? Oktbrwrld has the soul-filled funk for you to get your spooky groove on to. The five-piece unit will be laying down the sounds, as well as playing music from the soundtrack of The Water Story, an independent film co-written by Oktbrwrld bandleader Elnathan Starnes and filmmaker Morenike Efuntade. The film, which will be screened before the concert, takes a small-time hit-man through a spiritual twilight zone in order to change the path of his life for the better—maybe not so scary, but mystical enough to give you that haunted feeling. At 7:30 p.m. at Mr. Henry’s, 1836 Columbia Road NW. $7. (202) 531-6211. (HB)
