Bar Kabinet

Bar Kabinet

There aren’t too many figures in the art world bigger than curator and noted conversationalist Hans Ulrich Obrist, who drops by Galerie de l’UQAM tonight to open the Montreal iteration of his decades-spanning participatory project do it, for which a group of local artists were invited to interpret selected sets of instructions from the exhibition’s 23-year strong anthology in new ways, as well as develop new sets of instructions for other artists and exhibition attendees to follow, leading to unexpected and unpredictable results. 1400 Berri, #JR-120, 5:30 p.m., free

Bar Kabinet’s A Night Over Egypt DJ night marks its one-year anniversary, getting festive with DJs Devo B, le Merle, Juju le Moko and Maiko. 92 Laurier W., 7 p.m., free

The Centaur’s theatre festival Wildside continues, and if you haven’t had a chance to see Tiny Bear Jaws Productions’ show Miss Katelyn’s Grade Threes Prepare for the Inevitable (at last summer’s Fringe or this month’s Wildside), it’s well worth a look. 453 St-Francois-Xavier, 9 p.m., $16/$13 students

See a quintet of quality local musicians make music together at Resonance Café, namely Joe Grass (pedal steel), Vicky Mettler (guitar), Andrew Barr (drums), Parker Shper (piano/synths), Evan Tighe (drums/electronics). 5175A Parc, 9 p.m.

Techno dance party on a Tuesday? Why not? Strange Days Vibrant Nights features music by Strange Town and Jan Pienkowski and visuals by Van. Salon Daomé (141 Mont-Royal E.), 10 p.m., free (if you’re officially Attending on Facebook)
