If the heat and humidity creep into your abode today, tonight might be a good night to escape to a movie theatre (preferably one that still does cheap Tuesdays). Our film editor Alex Rose recommends Ex Machina, Welcome to Me and (for your inner 11-year-old) Tomorrowland.

Come hear some local noise at the Art Not Love Records listening party, featuring music by label artists Johnny Ripper, Hua Li and Dirty Organs. 185 Van Horne, 7:30 p.m., free

Blue Dog’s Hip Hop Trivia night is back for a third edition, awarding cash and credit at the bar to the most knowledgeable contestant. Full Course hosts. 3958 St-Laurent, 8 p.m., $5 or a non-perishable canned good to play, free for spectators (food & cover cash go to Sun Youth)

The Hot Butter music-documentary series at le Bleury presents Blue Note: A Story of Modern Jazz, a 1997 film about one of the oldest record labels going. DJs Dan and Den spin before and after the screening. 2109 Bleury, doors open at 8 p.m., screening at 9:30 p.m.

You may or may not remember Sebadoh from their ’90s heyday, but you can catch these indie rock vets as they continue to ride the wave of their 2013 comeback record, Defend Yourself. The openers are local acts the Nils and Sheer Agony. Bar le Ritz PDB (179 Jean-Talon W.), 9:30 p.m., $17/$20
