Learn to jive for free as part of this weekend’s Red Hot and Blue Rockabilly Festival. Noon’s for beginners, 1:45 for intermediately skilled dancers and 3:30 for the show-offs. Studio Metronome (4557 St-Laurent #300), 12 p.m., free

Get out of the city and head to Lavaltrie for Pouzza Pelouzza, a new punk fest featuring Anti-Flag, Planet Smashers, Dig It Up, Vulgaires Machins and more. Lavaltrie, 1–11 p.m., $20–25

Experience la dolce vita at the see-and-be-seen Bicycle Film Festival, where fashion, film and sweet vintage rides come together to mingle. Jeanne-Mance park at Duluth and Esplanade, 1 p.m., free (+ free beer, so get there early)

Taco truck kings Grumman 78 feed the masses at their St-Henri HQ as part of one of their legendary taco parties. They’re kind of a big deal, so be prepared to wait in line — but go anyway, because it’s delicious and oodles of fun. Grumman 78, 630 de Courcelle (metro St-Henri), 1 p.m.

Yashijuro Ozu’s Tokyo Story, recently voted the very best film of all time in a critics’ poll, screens at Cinéma du Parc. 3575 Parc, 3 p.m.

Eat a burger! Burger Week kicks off today and participants are encouraged to dine on some of the city’s best burgers in a decidedly socially interactive way, as we explained here. Sept. 1–7, various participating locations, $5–15/burger

The intriguingly titled Canadian comedy Please Kill Mr. Know It All screens at the Festival des films du monde. Cinéma Quartier Latin (350 Emery), 5 p.m.

Go see Public Enemy. The end. Expérience Montréal, Olympic Park (metro Pie-IX), set time 9:15 p.m., $0–12
