As part of  Concordia Food Coalition’s Bite Me! week, and in conjunction with Sustainability Action Fund Concordia, Cinema Politica screens SEED, a 2016 documentary by Jon Betz & Taggart Siegel about “passionate seed keepers as they wage a David and Goliath battle against chemical seed companies.” Concordia Hall Building (1455 de Maisonneuve W., #110), 7 p.m.

It’s just about that time — hockey time. The pre-season begins today, with the Habs playing the New Jersey Devils. Bell Centre (1909 Avenue des Canadiens de Montréal), 7:30 p.m., $29–$290

The first U.S. presidential election debate — between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, in case you’ve been blocking it out (yes, this is actually happening) — is being broadcast on loads of channels tonight, including the CBC. But if you’re TV-less or would just rather watch this debacle with some company, Mile End donut shop/café/restaurant Chez Boris will be airing the debate live, as will Little Italy bar Taverne Cobra (see their details here). Chez Boris (5151 Parc), Taverne Cobra (6584 St-Laurent), 8 p.m., free entry

If you didn’t get in on POP Montreal’s Symposium talks (or you did and you still want to scratch that itch, the Red Bull Music Academy has a special treat in store tonight. In Conversation With Iggy Pop pairs the Godfather of Punk with Canadian music journalist Carl Wilson for a lengthy chat about Pop’s colourful career. Monument National 1182 St-Laurent, 8 p.m., $35.35

Promoters Analogue Addiction present another way to cure POP Montreal withdrawal: Their 100th show, featuring L.A. rock ’n’ roll band and Burger Records signees Death Valley Girls with like-minded Montrealers Pale Lips and Penny Diving (formerly the Muscadettes). L’Escogriffe (4467 St-Denis), 9 p.m., $10
