The brand new queer party Discoño is where to be at on Saturday night. Expect New York City’s DJ Sissy Elliott, Paris DJ H.E.N.R.Y, along with Montreal Afrobeat and Reggaeton artist Mansa Musso and DJ MVCOKO, and five go go dancers on Ausgang Plaza’s stage.

If you haven’t seen a Xavier Dolan movie yet, next Tuesday is the day. Atomic Café is screening one of my favourites, Dolan’s Mommy.
In a previous version of this article, Musso was described as an R&B artist. In fact, they are an Afrobeat and Reggaeton artist. The Link regrets this error.
