The Slut Island music fest shifts from its regular digs (Bar le Ritz) to the Loyola Chapel in deepest NDG, presenting live sets by Anishinaabe electronic/classical musician Melody McKiver from Sioux Lookout, ON, Portland-based Canadian Cree electronic experimentalist Chloe Alexandra, Montreal’s R&B-inspired “melodramatic melody” maker Chivengi and local experimental artist Bá Ra, whose sound is made up of voice, synthesizers and glass. There will also be a reading by Lindsay Nixon (Metonymy Press). See more details about all the artists here. 7141 Sherbrooke W., 2–6 p.m., $10

Head to the Redpath Museum for another free screening opportunity, Les Plages d’Agnès, a documentary about French filmmaker Agnes Varda, screens as part of the museum’s Sunday Doc film series. 859 Sherbrooke O., 2:30 p.m., free

The Film noir au Canal screening series goes French tonight with Les Bas-fonds, a 1936 film by Jean Renoir starring Jean Gabin, Suzy Prim and Louis Jouvet.
