Concordia design students have organized a pop-up sale that doubles as a fundraiser and awareness event for Chez Doris and St-James, day centres for women and men in difficulty. All items for sale —  including personal care products, tote bags, headbands, lunch totes, slippers, travel bags and animal shaped pillows — are handmade and sustainable, two more reasons to feel good about shopping. FOFA Gallery (1515 Ste-Catherine W.), 2–5:30 p.m.

Filipino restaurant Junior is cooking up their version of L.A. street food tonight, with a side of tunes by DJ Toddy Flores — check out Tacos and 45s. 1964 Notre-Dame W., 5:30 p.m.

Participating artists include 123Klan, Chris Dyer, MC Baldassari, Jason Botkin, Futur Lasor Now, Starchild Stela, Sundus Abdul Hadi, Monk.E, Kevin Ledo, and many more. 250 Ste-Catherine E., 6–10 p.m., free entry, donations encouraged

3 Women, the trio of lady film buffs who are presenting a series of “hysteria”-themed films (ie. those depicting women with mental health struggles) at le Ritz, are back with a screening of the 1977 Robert Altman film that inspired their name. Altman’s 3 Women tells the story of complicated female friendships against a small-town desert backdrop. 179 Jean-Talon W., 7 p.m., $5 donation suggested (proceeds will be donated to Montreal women’s shelter Logifem)
