Positive Force regularly raises money for others, but tonight’s Positive Force Benefit will raise money to pay off some of PF’s own bills, notably from its MLK anniversary demonstration/concert and the Alternatives Festival. Playing are new ma jor-label contender Jawbox, (almost-) all-female Baltimore grunge rockers (with accordion) Womyn of Destruction, One Spot, Fringehead, and Light Sleeper. At 8:30 p.m. at the Black Cat, 1831 14th St. NW. $5. (202) 667-7960. (MJ)
