Beat Market

If you haven’t yet had a chance to check out the retro-futurist fun of locally produced science fiction action flick Turbo Kid, you can catch one of three screenings today at U de M, with the creators François Simard, Anouk Whissell and Yoann-Karl Whissell conducting a Q&A after the 7 p.m. show. 2332 Édouard-Montpetit, 6th floor, screenings at 5:15 p.m., 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m., $5. Continues Wednesday, Sept. 30 with same showtimes. Conference with the filmmakers takes place Tuesday only.

Downtown nightclub Newspeak is the site of the launch for the new record by Montreal electro duo Beat Market, titled Sun Machine. The party starts with a DJ set by Beat Market’s Lisbon Lux labelmate Fonkynson at 7:30 p.m., with a live set by Beat Market at 9 p.m. 1403 Ste-Elisabeth, 7:30 p.m., price unknown

Stromae’s second show at the Bell Centre is sold out, but if you missed out on that and are in a live-music kinda mood, check out British neo-folk singer Lianne La Havas at Théâtre Corona Virgin Mobile in Griffintown. The openers are Charlotte Cardin and Keenan O’Meara. 2490 Notre-Dame W., 8 p.m., $33/$37

Former punk bassist-turned electronic artist (and FlyLo collaborator with a solid gold musical pedigree) Thundercat (Stephen Bruner) plays tonight at Théâtre Fairmount with opener Karneef (who’ll be playing material off a new record) plus DJs from the Body Meta crew. 5240 Parc, 9 p.m., $15

Peterborough doom-rap guy Garbageface is headlining a show at Casa that’s being presented by the One Man Band festival. Also on the bill are New Brunswick’s Jonah Haché and Xania (whose bio promises synth-pop with hip hop beats and “cabaret-style showmanship”), along with live art by Laurence Dionne, projections and, they say, juggling. 4873 St-Laurent, 9 p.m., PWYC
