KEN Mode

The annual GG award winners are being announced today, which is probably more exciting news if you’re in a position to be winning one. Sigh.

Solomiya Moroz and Ali El-Darsa present the second and final showing of Standing Still, a vernissage and performance piece combining video and sound installations to capture the spirit of Griffintown, inspired by Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities. Fonderie Darling (745 Ottawa), 5 p.m., $5-10

The CCA is hosting a vernissage for its latest major exhibition, ABC:MTL, a self-portrait of the city. The ongoing exhibit will encompass several installations, workshops, talks and more, and this event promises a preview of what’s in store, plus music by Psychébélique and Foxtrott. Canadian Centre for Architecture (1920 Baile), 6:30–11 p.m., free

Get your mid-week rock on with Revocation and KEN Mode, the latter of which is a Winnipeg-based metal/hardcore/noise band on a mission to kill everyone now. With support from A Life Once Lost and Forbidden Sin. Foufounes Électriques (87 Ste-Catherine E.), 7 p.m., $13/15

The Luyas officially launch their new album Animator, with backup from Fiver. Cabaret du Mile End (5830 Parc), 8 p.m., $15

Punk rock’s Pouzza Fest will be announcing its 2013 festival lineup at a presser, followed by a free show with La Gachette, Bummer, Inside Riot, Sprinter, Black Love and Fortune Cookie Club.

The third annual The Prince of Arcade indie video games party and showcase is tonight, with a lineup including BariBariBall by Noah Sasso, DATATRAGEDY’s Memory of a Broken Dimension, and other local indie game productions, presented by the Mount Royal Game Society.
