Twenty years ago, three women founded the police-accountability group Copwatch in Berkeley. And on Thursday, March 11, three women will celebrate the organization’s founding by playing “sexy rock, black-girl style.” The band Sistas in the Pit headlines a benefit concert for Copwatch at Ashkenaz (1317 San Pablo Ave., Berkeley), which will also double as a celebration for International Women’s Day and a memorial for Oscar Grant, who was killed by a BART police officer on January 1, 2009. Cat Brooks and Miss Jada Simone will also perform. 7:30 p.m., $10-20 sliding scale.
