Turbo Kid

Local promoters Analogue Addiction are kicking off a series of dinner-party shows at Plateau resto-bar Perfecto. Tonight’s flagship event features Montreal duo Birds of Paradise (Hannah Lewis and Roy Vucino of Red Mass, who’ll also DJ when they’re not performing) and, on the menu, a savoury take on the Pop Tart, with pumpkin, kale, apples and strong cheddar, with a red pepper and orange demi-glace and caramelized onions. 20 Duluth E., 7 p.m., $20 w/ dinner & a glass of wine/$5 for the show alone

If you missed its Fantasia premiere and theatrical run this summer, take tonight’s opportunity to see Turbo Kid, a brilliant post-apocalyptic movie made by Montrealers — see more about the film here. Phi Centre (407 St-Pierre), doors 7:15 p.m., screening 8 p.m., $11.25/$9.25 for students & seniors

It’s a big night for Canadian music, with the annual awarding of the Polaris Prize (ahem, $50K) to the band that made the best record released in the last half of 2014 and first half of 2015, as chosen by a jury of critics from across the country — see this year’s shortlist of 10 nominees here. The gala is of course happening in Toronto, but you can watch it live streaming on this very site., 8 p.m.

Chicago alt-rock bros from way back — Wilco — are gracing Montreal with their presence once again, hitting Metropolis with opener William Tyler. 59 Ste-Catherine E., doors 6 p.m., 7:30 p.m., $49.50/$55
