If you’re downtown at lunchtime, check out Piknic Électronik’s DJ showcase at Jardins Gamelin, featuring up-and-coming local DJ Acronym. Ste-Catherine & Berri, 12–2 p.m., free

Brooklyn-based producer Jeremy Malvin makes delish synthscapes as Chrome Sparks, a solo project that expands to a three-piece live. Tonight he plays le Fairmount with opener Roland Tings — make sure to get in early for his set, and be ready to dance on a Monday. 5240 Parc, 7–11 p.m., $15

A new production, My Name Is Asher Lev, began yesterday at the Segal Centre. Written by Aaron Posner (who adapted the novel by Chaim Potok) and directed by Steven Schipper, the play tells the tale of a young man whose “mystifying” artistic talent doesn’t sit well with his family and religious community. 5170 Côte-Ste-Catherine, 8 p.m., $45–$60

Check out a screening of the 1970 cult classic Performance, co-directed by Donald Cammell (White of the Eye, Demon Seed) and Nicolas Roeg (The Man Who Fell to Earth, Don’t Look Now) and co-starring Mick Jagger and James Fox. 179 Jean-Talon W., 8 p.m., free/$5 suggested donation

Emma Wilkie hosts Blue Dog’s weekly stand-up showcase There’s Something Funny Going On, a great place to see Montreal’s considerable (anglo) comedy talent. Tonight the event teams up with Ladyfest to present female comics (though Kris Dulgar and Karl Knox snuck onto the bill too). See the line-up here. 3958 St-Laurent, 8:30 p.m., free
