VAV Gallery reveals a new exhibit today, called Ruins. Presented as part of the Art Matters festival, the show features six Concordia student artists working through themes of nostalgia and remembrance. 1395 Réné-Levesque W., 9 a.m.–9 p.m., free

Gay activist and auteur Bruce LaBruce is in town, giving a special presentation at a screening for his films Give Piece of Ass a Chance (2007) and The Raspberry Reich (2004), followed by a public Q&A session. 1455 de Maisonneuve W., #H-110, screenings at 1:15 p.m., talk at 3:30 p.m., free

It’s round two of Nouveau Palais’s old-school video game night, Nouveau Power. If you’re a CDJ, the decks are open, so bring some discs and spin as you and your friends rock the 8-bits and 64s. Note that the kitchen will be closed but the bar and snack counter are open. 281 Bernard W., 6 p.m.–12 a.m.

Sure-to-be-provocative documentary Roadmap to Apartheid, narrated by author Alice Walker, draws parallels between the racist South African regime and the Israel-Palestine situation. It screens as part of Concordia’s Cinema Politica series. 1455 de Maisonneuve W., #H-110, 7 p.m., suggested donation $2–$10

The Tame Impala show at Metropolis is sold out, so unless you’re holding a ticket, no dice. But if the smell of spring has you pining for open-air shows, CKUT’s Underground Sounds has a special announcement in store tonight, about a certain summer festival. 90.3 FM, 8 p.m.
