The Park

From The Park by Kate Hutchinson

The Mundial Montreal World Music Festival begins today with a show at Lion d’Or and runs through Friday, offering four days and nights of live music representing a wide range of cultures. See more about the festival here.

Join photographer Kate Hutchinson at Atelier b as she launches her book The Park, featuring portraits of Mount Royal Park taken over a two-year period. 5758 St-Laurent, 5–8 p.m., free

Montreal electro-pop artist Geoffroy launches his debut EP, Soaked in Gold, released last week by local label Bonsound. Casa del Popolo (4873 St-Laurent), 6–8 p.m., free

Get your laughs and crafts on with the Brunch Club at their weekly Arts & Laughs Tuesdays at Comedyworks. Craft supplies and two-for-one beers will be on hand to indulge your creative side while comedians DJ Mausner, Abdul Butt, Iain MacNeil, Mike Carrozza and host Steve Patrick Adams entertain you with jokes about this week’s theme: The Past. 1238 Bishop, 7–9 p.m., $5

Dancing? Try le Bleury Bar à Vinyle, hosting the Zig Zag Collectif DJs (“an esoteric collective of deliciously-seasoned dreamweavers”) and special guest Iron Galaxy. 2109 Bleury, 8 p.m.

Tell Spring Not to Come This Year is a documentary with a very particular and probably very different POV on the situation in the Middle East than what we’re used to, that of one unit in the Afghan army. The film is screening as part of the RIDM festival. Pavillon Judith-Jasmin (1564 St-Denis, Salle Jean-Claude Lauzon), 8:15 p.m., $11.50/$9.50 for students & seniors
