Philippe Caron Lefebvre’s Cuivrage
Sadly the weather’s looking iffy again today, so pack an umbrella for the outdoor stuff and consider some indoor events, especially this evening:

World Cup! Greece vs. Columbia (12 p.m.), Uruguay vs. Costa Rica (3 p.m.), England vs. Italy (6 p.m.), Japan vs. Côte d’Ivoire (9 p.m.). Here are some suggestions for where to watch the matches in Montreal.

The Osheaga festival is throwing a satellite block party in the middle of the St-Laurent street sale, as part of this weekend’s MURAL festival, with the Underachievers, DJ Sliink, the Blkout Boys, Shash’U, the Posterz, RrKelly and No Kliché. St-Laurent & Prince-Arthur, 1-10 p.m.

The Fringe Festival is in full effect, with tons of underground theatre, comedy and dance shows happening at (indoor) venues around the Plateau and beyond — look at their schedule for details. We’ll be posting a big batch of reviews of ongoing shows on Monday, but today we highly recommend My Playwright Sister and Iredea, as well as a special (free) edition of Piknic Électronik in Parc des Amériques (St-Laurent & Rachel, 1-7 p.m.), site of the Fringe box office and beer tent.

Have a little eye candy at the vernissage for Playlist, feat. work by artists Philippe Caron Lefebvre, Doyon-Rivest, Dominique Pétrin, Marc-Antoine K. Phaneuf and Les Ramsay. Galerie Antoine Ertaskiran (1892 Payette), 2-5 p.m.

A pair of local bands de qualité, Young Galaxy and Plants and Animals, and DJ F.U.N.K. (#1 Best Club DJ in the 2014 Best of MTL readers poll) play a free show in the Old Port, on the Red Bull Tour Bus, “a custom ’67 GM transit bus that transforms into a ground-shaking sound stage.” 3 p.m., RSVP for free tickets & location details here

Montreal band Maica Mia open up a Breakglass Studio recording session to a small crowd as part of the Suoni per il Popolo festival, and if you can’t make it down, you can watch a live webcast. Details here. 7250 Clark, 6 p.m., $15

If you’re down for a long evening of fucked up cinema, see Lars von Trier’s Nymphomaniac volumes I and II, on the big screen. Phi Centre (407 St-Pierre), 7 p.m. (vol I), 9:30 p.m. (vol II), $11.25 for one/$15 for both
