Future Islands in action
People: Boyhood, the Richard Linklater movie shot over 12 years, is still screening at Parc, as is Slums: Cities of Tomorrow, a solid documentary offering a fresh perspective on cheap, cramped housing. 3575 Parc, various times, $12/$10 if you’re under 25
The big show tonight is happening at Metropolis, where Baltimore synth-pop trio Future Islands headline with openers Operators (ex-Wolf Parade/Handsome Furs) and DJ Disco Phantom.

On the heels of Labour Day, RIDM’s outdoor film-screening series continues with Workingman’s Death, a 2005 documentary about extreme working conditions across the globe. Place de la Paix, just south of SAT (1201 St-Laurent — the screening will take place here if it rains), 9 p.m., free
Up at Casa, heavy instrumentalists Set and Setting (from St. Petersburg, FLA) play alongside locals Atsuko Chiba and (wait for it) Christ. This will go deep. 4873 St-Laurent, 9 p.m., $8 before the first band/$10
