Doldrums launch Lesser Evil alongside Blue Hawaii tonight

Read the Rant Line™!

The Rendez-vous du cinéma québécois rolls on, screening the best local films of the previous year. Tonight, catch Denis Côté’s boldly bizarre animal doc Bestiaire (Quartier Latin, 350 Emery, 5:45 p.m., $10) and/or Rafaël Ouelett’s ultra-realist drama Camion (Quartier Latin, 7:45 p.m., $10)

In these times of linguistic squabbles, underground film series The NOAH offers something for everyone: a Québécois-dubbed version of John Waters’s Polyester. Organizers promise “at least one” of the film’s famous Odorama scratch-’n’-sniff cards. Peut-être Vintage, 6029a Parc, doors 7:30 p.m., film 8 p.m., $5, BYOB

Arbutus buds Doldrums and Blue Hawaii double-launch their new records with DJ Cadence Weapon and Moonbahn, the latter playing live acid. Possibly on acid. But that’s conjecture. See our Blue Hawaii piece here. The Plant (ask the Internet!), 9 p.m., $5/$8

Local punks Crimes launch their new album tonight with help from Rockhard, Bearmace and HGM. Katacombes (1635 St-Laurent), 10 p.m., $5/$18 with vinyl pressing of new album
