Bring your earplugs (just because it’s at the Concert Hall doesn’t mean it isn’t going to rock).

Justin Timberlake Afterparty @ The Palomino Club (436 Main Street)

(Party begins after concert)

Justin Timberlake is bringing sexy back to Winnipeg (finally). After the show, it’s the VIP treatment at the world famous Palomino Club, where you can rock your body at the Justin Timberlake afterparty! Hey, maybe he’ll show and you can ask him what it was like to work with David Fincher?

Restoration Tuesdays Presents Wanda @ Cinematheque (304-100 Arthur Street)

7pm

With her first and only feature film—a hard-luck drama she wrote, directed, and starred in—Barbara Loden turned in a groundbreaking work of American independent cinema, bringing to life a kind of character seldom seen on-screen. Set amid a soot-choked Pennsylvania landscape, and shot in an intensely intimate vérité style, this 1970 feature takes up with distant and soft-spoken Wanda (Loden), who has left her husband, lost custody of her children, and now finds herself alone, drifting between dingy bars and motels, and callously mistreated by a series of men—including a bank robber who ropes her into his next criminal scheme. Wanda is a compassionate and wrenching portrait of a woman stranded on society’s margins.
