Stereo Linear Balance

Part of “Stereo Linear Balance”

Head to Park Ex’s la Place Commune for a free community BBQ and bike tune-up day with volunteer mechanics from Vélo Montreal and Lucien-Pagé High School. 7669 Querbes, 11 a.m.–4 p.m., free

Presented by this summer’s upcoming BIAN (Digital Art Biennial), Montreal-based multimedia artist Santiago Tavera will host a vernissage for his immersive video installation “Stereo Linear Balance” at Ville Émard’s Maison de la Culture Marie-Uguay — the work that creates stereoscopic illusions using video and digital projections. 6052 Monk, 2–5 p.m., free

The annual May Day demonstration is happening at Philips Square, bringing together anti-capitalist, anti-colonialist, anti-imperialist and anti-racist contingents to smash capitalism, figuratively speaking. Attend or avoid. Phllips Square, corner Ste-Catherine W. & Square-Philips, 3 p.m., free

The Sunday Slams jam session at Mile End bar Snack N Blues presents Felbarr, ie. Brad and Andrew Barr of the Barr Brothers and Michael Felber, with host DJ Izzy. Judging from the promise of Purple Rain drink specials (not to mention the Event Page pic), there will likely be some Prince covers. 5260 St-Laurent, 9 p.m.

Fly away at Salon Daomé’s Lofthanza dance party with Robert de la Gauthier and BLVDR manning the cockpit. 141 Mont-Royal E., 10 p.m., $4 before midnight, $6 after
