Kate Plays Christine

Today marks the start of the holiday edition of POP Montreal’s recurring shopping bonanza, Puces POP. See the list of dozens of artisans who’ll be set up at Église St-Denis over two weekends this year, selling art, food, baby, pet and bodycare items, clothing, accessories, decor and more. 5075 St-Denis, 3–9 p.m. today, 11 a.m.–7 p.m. Saturday, 11 a.m.–5 p.m. Sunday

Brought to you by la Pépinière, the team behind the summertime pop-up party spot Village au Pied du Courant, la Petite Floride turns a barren corner of Mile End into a fun zone with a skating rink and café/bistro — a risky, weather-permitting endeavour worthy of community support (or curiosity, at the very least). The site opens today (postponed after last week’s planned launch was rained out) and will remain until March 31. 5705 de Gaspé, 5–11 p.m., free

Plateau pop-up shop One Undone hosts a performance and art installation night featuring live art by Boris Biberdzic and a performance by dancers Pier-Loup and Alexander Hille, plus locally produced clothing and furniture by new label Litige plus designers Pedram Karimi and Loïc Bard. See more about the project in our interview with Karimi, here4621 St-Laurent, 6–8 p.m., free

For some reason biopics often come in twos, and this year two films have been about Christine Chubbuck, the Florida reporter who shot herself on live TV in 1974. Tonight, Phi Centre is screening both of them: Antonio Campos’s more conventional drama Christine (5 p.m.) and Robert Greene’s deconstructed documentary about the making of a second biopic, Kate Plays Christine (7:30 p.m.). 407 St-Pierre, $12.50 per film/$9.50 students

Another edition of Subversive V: Future-proof Music brings electronic, experimental, industrial, cold wave and post-punk local bands Radio Void, Maddame and Palissade to the stage at Casa del Popolo. 4873 St-Laurent, 9 p.m., $5 suggested/PWYC

Multitalented genre-hopping Montreal musician Beaver Sheppard plays a headlining solo set as part of tonight’s show at la Plante, also featuring Sarah Osborne, Amory Jun and Kindly. Secret location, 9 p.m., $7 (no one turned away for lack of funds), BYOB
