DeAnne Smith

Australian comic Jim Jefferies brings his Freedumb Tour to Théâtre St. Denis. See our interview with him — about the controversial bit that went viral and hitting stand-up gold — here. 1594 St-Denis, 8 p.m., $52.25

Weekly hip hop and soul jam le Cypher kicks off a four-day celebration of the 10th anniversary of MTL Bboying. Tonight’s pre-party, titled No Parking on the Dancefloor, runs much the way le Cypher does every Thursday: resident band Urban Science will play, and MCs, beatboxers, singers, players and bboys and bgirls are invited to BYO rhymes, vocals, instruments and moves to join the regulars and the MTL Bboying crew. Le Bleury Bar à Vinyle (2109 Bleury), 8 p.m., $6 ($4 before 9 p.m.)

A bright light on Montreal’s (anglo) stand-up scene — DeAnne Smith — is recording a comedy album this week at Théâtre Sainte Catherine. Last night’s show was sold out but there are still tickets available for tonight’s second and final performance. Be part of local comedy history! 264 Ste-Catherine E., 10 p.m., $14

The fourth edition of Turbo Haus’s Blatant Localism series is also the launch of Superbafrango, the new record by local pop-punk/thrash/old-school HC band Boids, with openers PGB (aka Perry Got Busted) and, making their live debut, the Sick Things (featuring members of Barn Burner, Prevenge, Nerve Control, Windpisser and the Castavets). 5011 Notre-Dame W., 8 p.m., PWYC

This is the second consecutive day we’ve plugged an event at the new Village nightclub — Play (which opened on Saturday) — but with good reason. Tonight, resident DJ Robert De La Gauthier and special guest JNNBNNRCK are reviving Overdose, the beloved weekly that went down at Parking Nightclub through the aughts. 1450 Ste-Catherine E., 10 p.m., free before 11 p.m.
