Get ready for winter by checking out a giant warehouse sale in Ville St-Laurent where, among many other things, you’ll find winter gear from North Face, Helly Hansen, Lolë and Puma at prices up to 50% off. 4344 Garand, VSL, 11 a.m.–7 p.m., continues to Sunday, Sept. 20

On the edge of Chinatown, Galerie MX launches dual exhibitions from award-winning photojournalist and artist PAL (Paul-André Larocque) and painter-illustrator PONY (Gabrielle Lailla Tittley), whose cheeky illustrations have graced album covers, show posters and sweatshirts around the local arts and music scenes. 333 Viger W., 5:30 p.m., free

Towards the other end of the southern strip, Griffintown’s Arsenal hosts “The Colour of Music,” a free performance where musician Philippe Van Eetvelt will play a piano that’s hooked up to a series of syringes filled with coloured paint—each time he hits a note, the corresponding syringe will release its colour, creating a visual record of Van Eetvelt’s aural art. 2020 William, 6–9 p.m., with performances at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m., free

Cinema Out of the Box sets up at Mile End’s Champ des Possibles tonight for a bicycle-powered screening of David Lynch’s surreal 1977 classic Eraserhead. St-Viateur & de Gaspé, 7:30 p.m., free

The “technically still summer” edition of the Zig Zag Collective’s night at le Bleury Bar à Vinyle welcomes guest DJ (and “Verdun vandal”) Nicolas Lê Quang, spinning “funky AOR, marina funk, pontoon boogie, nautical house and aqua-Druid hymns.” 2109 Bleury, 7 p.m.

Vancouver’s Sarah Davachi, whose sound has been described as “avant-garde music of glacial magnitude,” makes her Montreal debut at Casa del Popolo with openers Supercooling and Kara-Lis Coverdale. 4873 St-Laurent, 8:30 p.m., $10/PWYC

Head to Barfly for a comedy show with a risqué twist: if the jokes don’t get enough laughs, host George Braithwaite has to strip off a piece of clothing—giving comedians Scott Andrew Carter, Sarah Stupar and Kris Dulgar extra motivation to keep you (and therefore George) in stitches—and all for a good cause, with proceeds going towards Head & Hands. 4062 St-Laurent, 9 p.m., $7 suggested donation
