Corrosion of Conformity will be holding a special screening for their Live Volume DVD (featuring such COC classics as "Vote With a Bullet" and "Clean My Wounds"), with all box office and merchandise proceeds benefiting the Afghan Women's Mission. This group is an arm of the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan (RAWA), who defy Taliban prohibitions against women seeking a career, education, or participation in public life. This is the feature-length DVD's first public showing, with the band members on hand for a meet-and-greet prior to the screening. The event takes place Thursday, Oct. 18 at 7 p.m., at the Rialto Theatre in Raleigh. Call 856-8683 for details. For more information on RAWA and the Afghan's Women's Mission, visit www.rawa.org. --Angie Carlson
