In these times of linguistic squabbles, underground film series The NOAH offers something for everyone: a Québécois-dubbed version of John Waters’s Polyester.

Arbutus buds Doldrums and Blue Hawaii double-launch their new records with DJ Cadence Weapon and Moonbahn, the latter playing live acid. Possibly on acid. But that’s conjecture. See our Blue Hawaii piece here. The Plant (ask the Internet!), 9 p.m., $5/$8
Local punks Crimes launch their new album tonight with help from Rockhard, Bearmace and HGM. Katacombes (1635 St-Laurent), 10 p.m., $5/$18 with vinyl pressing of new album
