Happy Safer Internet Day! Here are our top event picks for the day:

One day we’ll probably be able to download skills directly into our brains, but until then, it’s still helpful to know how to sew a button or fix a hem. Find out how at a crash course in sewing at Stonemountain & Daughter Fabrics, one of the East Bay’s last remaining great fabric shops. 6:30-9 p.m., $25.

How has the history and politics of childbirth and midwifery changed over time? Hear insights from midwife Yeshi Neumann, Regional Director of the Institute of Jewish Spirituality Rabbi Margie Jacobs, and doula Jen Miriam in a talk about “mindful birthing.” At the Jewish Community Center of the East Bay; 6:30 p.m., $7, $5 for members.

Young men of color face high dropout rates, below-proficiency reading scores, and chronic absenteeism, which are among the reasons why the Oakland Unified School District has an Office of African-American Male Achievement. See students in the district’s Manhood Development programs (plus a special TBA guest) at “Brothers and Beats,” a celebration of music, arts, and culture in honor of Black History Month, tonight at Yoshi’s. 8 p.m., $10.


Join DJ Lgcc, Worker/Parasite, and Nihar for “Deep Down: A Night of Analog Electronics,” exploring everything from drum ’n’ bass to hip-hop, indie-rock, and industrial. At the Uptown; 8 p.m., free.
