Quatro, tonight at Divan Orange

Got a short film or video? Today’s your last chance to submit it to the Segal Centre’s Made in Montreal mini-festival (not to be confused with our Made in MTL series on Montreal-shot films). Find details here.

For those who are academically inclined, check out Sound and Dissent, a one-day conference exploring sound’s relationship to political dissent, inspired by last year’s casserole protests. Speakers presenting original sound studies research include Mitch Akiyama, Lilian Radovac, S.D. Jowett and Magdalena Olszanowski. There will also be a panel discussion with McGill and Concordia profs Jonathan Sterne, Kay Dickinson and Elena Razlogova. John Molson School of Business, Concordia University (1450 Guy, MB 3.270), 12:30–5 p.m., free

Catch homegrown cinema talent Jay Baruchel on CBC’s Homerun. He and host Sue Smith will debate the aptness of Hugh MacLennan’s Two Solitudes in contemporary Quebec. Catch it live on CBC Radio One (88.5 FM), 3–5 p.m., or head to Indigo Books (1500 McGill College) to watch it happen.

Fresca Luna presents a solo show of her art deco-inspired paintings in the Plateau, with a vernissage and launch party this evening. L’espace contemporain galerie d’art de Montreal (5175 Papineau), 5 p.m., free

It’s BBAM!’s one-year anniversary! Come fete the indie gallery space with free cake and deals on art, posters, jewellery and more at their birthday party tonight. BBAM! (3255 St-Jacques), 7–11 p.m.

Members of Duchess Says and beloved defunct aughts phenom les Georges Leningrad come together as Quatro, under the influence of franco-, Queb- and kraut-rock of the ’70s. Divan Orange (4234 St-Laurent), 9:30 p.m.

New bar, you say? Say you were there at the very beginning, as Second Floor opens its doors with an opening party tonight. Music by DJ Zarfan, crazy opening night drink specials. Second Floor (5169 Parc), 10 p.m.–3 a.m., free
