The Quebec Drama Foundation hosts its second annual softball tournament. Come out to cheer on your favourite theatrical types. 9 a.m.–8 p.m., Parc Laurier baseball diamond, free

Piknic! The outdoor dance-party/afternoon-hang has its kind-of Bastille Day edition (happy that, Frenchies), with imported-from-France DJs Pilooski, Mondkopf and Arandel joining Canadians Madame Hussein, Nany Leven (live) and members of the Arbutus Records crew. Parc Jean Drapeau, 2 p.m., $14

Cinéma 17 offers a John Carpenter Double Feature including classics Escape From New York and The Thing. Le Cagibi (5490 St-Laurent), 9 p.m., by donation

If you’re feelin’ like singing some sweet tunes in good company, head over to Notre Dame des Quilles for Lipster, the weekly karaoke party hosted by Julie and Michael. 32 Beaubien E., 9 p.m.

Fuck Guns N Roses, dude, seriously. If you need live music tonight, check out Giga Herbs (bad name, cool sounds), a garage-pop act from NYC, supported by indie/folk/pop acts the Seconds (NYC), Three Little Birds (Ottawa, and they’re not a reggae band) and Motel Raphaël (MTL). Divan Orange (4234 St-Laurent), 9:30 p.m., $5
