Check out Mike Myers’ directorial debut Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon, a documentary on the famous Hollywood insider and music manager. Cinéma du Parc (3575 Parc), $11.50, check here for showtimes

Dr. Sketchy’s Montreal presents Sheath, a chance to see (and draw) burlesque performer Lady Josephine as she demonstrates her talents with a sword. Parc des Amériques (St-Laurent & Rachel), 6 p.m., free (tips welcome)

For a super-heavy show (on a sonic and spiritual level, at least according to our columnist Johnson Cummins, who calls this band “life-changing”) see Swans tonight, with the always intense Xiu Xiu opening. 1220 Ste-Catherine E., 7:30 p.m., $22/$25

Vivacious indie pop act tUnE-yArDs (truly something to behold live) return to the band’s birthplace, with opener Sylvan Esso. La Tulipe (4530 Papineau), 8:30 p.m., $20/$22

Dance party? NYC’s LE1F, the U.K.’s Roberto Piqueras and MTL’s own Booty Bakery have the run of the decks at the Phi Centre. 407 St-Pierre, 10 p.m., $15
