Women in bathing suits eating pizza


Check out rue St-Denis’s new Grande Terrasse Rouge today with an open air exhibition of works taking an original look at the life of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, presented by the arts collective Nebulae, with DJ sets by Syla, Hooll & Mono-Poly and Tambalache. St-Denis between Rachel & Marie-Anne, 12–6 p.m., free

The origins of a 1920’s era photograph-inspired meme about young suffragettes “eating pizza in bathing suits to annoy men” turns out to be wishful thinking, but that didn’t stop a group of Montreal pizza- and bathing suit-loving femmes from organizing a voting-rights rally around the theme, happening today in front of the Palais de Justice. In between cheesy mouthfuls, make your voice heard to denounce Stephen Harper’s efforts to suppress voter turnout through the Orwellian-titled “Fair Elections Act.” 1 Notre-Dame E., 2 p.m., free

Head to the eastern tip of the Plateau to brand-new bar Major Tom for a vernissage of 12 new works by collage-based street artist Madame Gilles, whose colourful geometric wheatpastes you may have noticed around the neighbourhood. 2487 Rachel E., 6 p.m., free

Detroit rapper Obie Trice‘s Cheers to the Hangover tour comes to le Belmont with openers Kra Zy K, BuDz, Perfekshun tha Artist Cy (aka southwestkidd) and Eddy Monk. 4483 St-Laurent, 8 p.m., $50/$40 in advance
