Today, Cult MTL is two years old. That means it’s time to party. We’re celebrating this Saturday, July 19, with a party at SAT featuring a pack of bands, DJs, bouffe and booze. The party is free if you RSVP by 5 p.m. tomorrow, Thursday, July 17. Details here.


It’s demo time, folks. The Howl Arts collective and Tadamon are asking people to bring their pots and pans to participate in some good old community activism in solidarity with the Palestinians of Gaza, featuring sounds and songs of resistance. See the details here. Mont-Royal metro, 5:30 p.m.

My First Time, hosted by Darren Henwood and Richardson Zéphir, showcases some up-and-coming local stand-up talent as part of Zoofest. Théâtre Ste-Catherine (264 Ste-Catherine E.), 7 p.m., $23.67

At Place des Arts, Just for Laughs presents Aziz Ansari, who performs his new stand-up show, Modern Romance, twice! Théâtre Maisonneuve (175 Ste-Catherine W.), 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m., $62.35
