You could alternately check out Cinéma Urbain’s outdoor screening of Army of Lovers in the Holy Land, a documentary about a Swedish queer disco band from the ’90s. Outside 1201 St-Laurent, 8:30 p.m., free
Fierté MTL’s Cabaret Fierté brings Pussycat Drags, KDN Company and more talents to Place Emilie Gamelin. De Maisonneuve & Berri, 8:30 p.m., free
Blue Dog launches an “all-wave retro weekly” called Substance, and even though the is night named after a Joy Division reference and also has Madonna among the artists on their flyer, that’s still kind of okay, right? As long as there’s no Phil Collins, yeah? It’s all up to DJs Search + Destroy, Fräulein and this week’s special guest, Choozey. 3958 St-Laurent, 10 p.m., price unlisted
