Les Canadiennes

Local record shops Aux 33 Tours and Beatnick cohost a Salon du Disque (ie. record convention) at the space fondly known as the Expozine church. Eglise St-Enfant Jésus (5037 St-Dominique), 10 a.m.–4 p.m., $5

Support your local fashion scene at this weekend’s Braderie de la Mode Québécoise, a giant semi-annual pop-up shop at the old port’s Marché Bonsecours featuring a hundred or so Quebec fashion designers with clothing for women and men, plus accessories, with new collections plus previous season stock and samples at 50–80% off. 325 de la Commune E., 10 a.m.–5 p.m., free entry, runs through Sunday

It’s the season opening weekend for Montreal’s women’s hockey team, les Canadiennes, who will take on rivals the Toronto Furies this afternoon at Rosemont’s Centre Étienne Desmarteau. 3430 de Bellechasse, 5:30 p.m., $15

Young Paris — the Congolese-born, NYC-based artist (who’s been known to spend time in Montreal) — brings his Afrobeat-oriented, EDM-inflected hip hop to Théâtre Fairmount, with opener No Kliché. Check out our new interview with him here. 5240 Parc, 8 p.m., $12

Over three consecutive Saturdays, hip hop promoters Moto Made present Room 3958, a party at Plateau nightclub Blue Dog. On the music, first up is hrmxny, GrandBuda, BLINDD, KAZZ and Treazon. 3958 St-Laurent, 10 p.m., $5 before 11 p.m./$10

Lip Balm is a party first — with DJs Radiant Baby, Awwful, Nana Zen, Odile Myrtil, Jeffany, Devo B and Kaz Kandy working to pack the dancefloor at le Ritz with pop and techno selections — but it’s also a fundraiser for the Native Women’s Shelter, a tip of the hat to recently injured fellow DJ and scene staple Frankie Teardrop (founder of the LIP parties, hence “Lip Balm”) and a little awareness-raiser for survivors of gendered violence. This is being called “a healing fundraiser queer dance party” — we’ll drink to that. 179 Jean-Talon W., 11 p.m., $5–$10 suggested donation
