The great river dump to come

We’re still 10 days away from Election Day, but why wait? You can vote in advance polls today through Sunday and avoid the rush. Check out our handy Election Guide to find out everything you need to vote, including info like how to find your polling station—note that advance polls may be in a different location than the main event. Various locations, 12–8 p.m., continues through Sunday

Show your distaste for the shitty plan to dump eight billion litres of raw sewage into the St. Lawrence by attending today’s demo against the plan at City Hall. 275 Notre-Dame E., 6 p.m., free

Head to the Glass Door Gallery for Obsessions, a one-night-only exhibition of new works by Jessie Kravitz, aka iambatman, including abstract expressions inspired by comics, superheroes and queer love. 4064 St-Laurent, #1, 7 p.m.–12 a.m., free

Metal fans who’ve never made the pilgrimage to Germany’s Wacken festival will want to check out the documentary Wacken 3D: The Movie, directed by Norbert Heitker. It’s screening as part of the Festival du nouveau cinéma — see the trailer and more movie details here. 1455 de Maisonneuve W. H-110, 9:30 p.m., $13/$9 for students & seniors

Playing la Vitrola tonight is Montreal-born and Woodstock, NY-based Mas Ysa, a singer-songwriter and producer who makes electro-pop that’s uplifting and melancholy at the same time (and sounds a bit like Peter Gabriel with beats). Get in early for openers Saxsyndrum and Happymovie. 4602 St-Laurent, 9:30 p.m., $12/$15

The Kalmunity Vibe Collective is best known for its weekly live music events at Plateau and Mile End spaces like Bobards and Résonance Café, but tonight it’s going full-on dance-party at le Belmont with the second edition of its monthly event Foundation Fridays. Tonight’s talent includes DJ Conn Shawnery, soul singer Malika Tirolien, spoken word performer Fabrice Coffy and 2Marv. 4483 St-Laurent, 10 p.m., $10/$8 for students/$6 in advance
