All You Joe Crow Fascists!

Assembly Rooms, 8pm

Will Kaufman's back in town with his show about Woody Guthrie's anti-racist songs and activism. Guthrie may have been best known for championing Dust Bowl migrants, but he had a few words to say about segregation and racism too. Most of his songs on the subject were never recorded, but their legacy lives on. Kaufman gives a blistering presentation of how racists aren't born, but made - and how they can be un-made.

Field Music

Black Box, 8pm

Sunderland brothers Peter and David Brewis give the very best of pop a decidedly British tinge. They cite as their influences musicians as diverse as Stravinsky, Fleetwood Mac, Serge Gainsbourg, Thelonious Monk and Kate Bush. Their sound has been described as "wayward pop from the fringes of academia". Although they've just released a new album, the pair make it clear that fame and glory hasn't helped them pay their bills to date. What's not to like?

Milonga

Black Box, 1pm

Grab your partners for a whirl around the dance floor in CQAF's new tea dance with a twist. After the success of last year's event, the festival has turned up the temperature by bringing the passion and fire of the Argentinian Milonga to Bank Holiday Belfast. Professional tango instructor Monina Paz will give dancers a quick lesson, before the dance begins. As for the passion and sexy moves - I'm afraid you'll have to bring your own!

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Cancer:

Your career has been undergoing some dramatic changes. At long last, you'll have a chance to slow down and catch your breath. Getting used to a new set of responsibilities will take time and patience. Try not to be hard on yourself when you struggle with unfamiliar concepts. Nobody expects perfection, especially at this stage of the game. The more gentle you are with yourself, the easier it will be to master this role. If you're out of work, take this opportunity to rest and reflect on future possibilities.More
