Do It Today: it's 4/20, Sick Puppies rock out, author Slavenka Drakulic speaks out, and DJ Sinden spins out

In honor of Genocide and Human Rights Awareness Month, the Florida Holocaust Museum offers a free lecture with Slavenka Drakulic, Croatian author of They Would Never Hurt a Fly and As If I'm Not There. 7 p.m. Tues., April 20, Florida Holocaust Museum, free, 55 Fifth St. S., St. Petersburg,

A rising leader in the UK club scene, British DJ/producer Sinden earned his electro cred when he began incorporating elements of dance subgenres like B-more, baile funk and reggaeton into his repertoire of house, UK garage, and breakbeat. He’s been called the “British Diplo,” his music now tagged as “fidget house,” fast-tempo, dirty aggro rhythms mixed with deep synth grooves and the usual unz-unz-unz of club hits like 2008’s “Beeper” featuring Kid Sister. 10 p.m. Tues., April 20, Czar, Ybor City. --Leilani Polk

Also, I think it's worth mentioning that the date is 4.20. Good luck getting outta the house to do any of this stuff today.

Sydney-based alt rock trio Sick Puppies (pictured) have only released three full-length studio albums since their inception in 1997, but what they lack in prolificacy they make up for in YouTube hits. Their inspirational power-ballad “All The Same” was featured in a video for the Free Hugs Campaign in 2006 and has more than 57 million views to date. 8 p.m. Tues., April 20, Bourbon Street Nightclub, New Port Richey, $15-$18.–Matthew Spencer
