History's a funny thing. Ten years ago, Thomas Edison was "Edison the genius inventor," and few disputed it. Today, he's seen as a money-grubbing CEO-type who stole ideas. All the while, Nicola Tesla's star has been on the rise in pop culture, from niche figure to lauded engineer. Celebrate the man and learn about his accomplishments at KCMJ's Second Annual Nikola Tesla Dinner at the Tim Gill center tonight. Local historical portrayer Richard Marold will be playing Tesla, as he has for more than 16 years. In addition to interpretive Tesla exhibits, expect a guest speech from former Indy publisher John Weiss. Profits go to benefit KCMJ community radio. 6 p.m., 315 E. Costilla St., $35, kcmj.org. — Griffin Swartzell
