Wildcat! Wildcat!


The sequel to Nazi zombie flick Dead Snow, Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead (involving the old Russian Red Army) comes highly recommended by our Screen Team, and it’s on today at the Fantasia festival. 1455 de Maisonneuve W., 4:30 p.m., $10/$11

Under Pressure gets a head start on their weekend with the first festival-affiliated event, Beaux Dégâts #22, which will see six teams of artists go head-to-head, with the audience choosing the winning team via a foolproof empty-PBR-can ballot system. Foufounes Électriques (87 Ste-Catherine E.), 7 p.m., $5

The Qouleur Festival presents From Zero to Future (and all in-between), a selection of screenings of films made by 2QTPOC artists exploring themes of gender, identity and culture. Studio XX, 4001 Berri, 7 p.m., free

The Resonance Reading Series brings together a line-up of local writers and poets, including Rawi Hage, Leigh Kotsilidis and Anna Leventhal, to share their works in their own voices. 5175A Parc, 9 p.m., free

L.A. synth-pop band Wildcat! Wildcat! are so new, they haven’t even released an EP yet — their debut physical is out Sept. 10 on Downtown Records. But they sound pretty promising to us, enough to recommend their show tonight at la Vitrola. Don’t miss opener Marley Carroll, an indie-electro producer from Asheville, North Carolina. 4602 St-Laurent, 9 p.m., $12
