La Sala Rossa (4848 St-Laurent), 7 p.m., $20/$15 students/seniors/artists

Chamber music aficionados Innovations en concert host a very special performance night at Eastern Bloc, featuring a presentation of the hour-long poetry and accompaniment work Manifeste Assi, in which the evocative words of Innu poets Natasha Kanapé Fontaine and Joséphine Bacon are punctuated by an atmospheric live score by composer Thierry Tidrow. 7240 Clark, 8 p.m. $15/$10 students
