ART: Opening today: OCADU’s art show Multipli{City}, which features selections from the portfolios of first-year art, media, and design masters students. The exhibition tries to explore urban existence through different artforms. There will be works on display by Faraz Anoushah Pour, Jason Deary, Ryan Ferko, Brette Gabel, Trent Hunter, Alex Morrison, Anjuli Rahaman, and Stephen Surlin. OCADU Graduate Gallery (205 Richmond Street West), 12–5 p.m., FREE.

MUSIC: Every night there’s a seemingly infinite amount of forgettable indie bands playing in bars across the city. Tonight, why don’t you try something a little different? Fred Spek’s CaMp CoMbo promises a memorable evening, with their upbeat hybrid of pop, swing, jazz, and polka (lovingly known as “hipster vaudeville”). Don’t be surprised when a few TV theme songs and surf beats make their way onto the set list. The Reservoir Lounge (52 Wellington Street East), 7–9 p.m., $5.

FILM: Joe Pickett (The Onion) and Nick Prueher (The Late Show with David Letterman) have trawled thrift stores, garage sales, and dumpsters across North America gathering discarded videos of all sorts. Why? To put together the Found Footage Festival for your viewing pleasure. Their collection includes everything from hilarious home movies, to odd instructional tapes and obscure cable television bits. They’ll even reveal a secret about the Kenny Strasser yo-yo pranks that were pulled on Midwest newscasts last year. The Garrison (1197 Dundas Street West), 7:30 p.m., $13.
