This year, the travelling World Fringe Congress (of which the Montreal Fringe Fest is a member) takes place right here in Montreal, and a slew of performances and special events are happening this week while Fringe delegates from around the world are in town. Head to the MainLine tonight for performances of the Fringe plays Little Orange Man, about a young storyteller with a taste for the bizarre (8 p.m.), followed by Helen Simard’s choreography in No Fun, a dance performance based on the punk rock of Iggy Pop (10 p.m.). A few doors down at the MainLine Gallery will be a screening of the documentary On the Fringe. (8:15 p.m.) Performances at 3997 St-Laurent, $15/$12 students, film screening at 3905 St-Laurent, $10

The M for Montreal music festival strides into day two with a free afternoon show at the Red Roof Church featuring, among others, local folk artist Leif Vollebekk (137 Président-Kennedy, 3 p.m.), a solid hip hop show at Club Soda with Busty and the Bass, Brown and Heartstreets (1225 St-Laurent, 8:30 p.m., $20) and a promising mixed bag of indie pop, experimental rock and leftfield dance music, with Tasseomancy, Bernardino Femminielli and more (Café Cleopatra, 1230 St-Laurent, 9 p.m.,$30).

Music lovers with adventurous tastes take note: The weather is right for a night wandering the Main, where sets by seven up-and-coming artists are being presented between Divan Orange and Club Balattou as part of the Mundial music festival. See the line-up here. 4234 St-Laurent/4372 St-Laurent, 8 p.m.–12 a.m., $15
