Well the Cigarettes After Sex show is sold out tonight, which is a shame for late-comers because their ambient pop sound would be pretty sweet to experience live — will there be scalpers at Théâtre Fairmount? 5240 Parc, 9 p.m., tickets cost $20/$25, all ages (again, this is SOLD OUT)
A darker, tweaked out (but no less atmospheric) sounds awaits at la Sala Rossa, where Femminielli Noir (a collaboration between showman/Italo disco songwriter Bernardino Femminielli and noise artist Jesse Osborne Lanthier) headline a benefit show with openers Pelada and Dead Dog. Proceeds will go to earthquake relief efforts in Mexico. 4848 St-Laurent, 9:30 p.m., $10-$20/PWYC sliding scale
