    Jimmy Eat World, Pronoun

    Tools

    Wed., Nov. 13, 7:30 p.m.

    Most music fans remember Jimmy Eat World for their 2001 smash hit “The Middle.” The pop-rock tune landed in the top five on Billboard’s Hot 100, Top 40 and Alternative charts, and was used in numerous TV shows, movies and commercials. But that chart-topper was merely a blip in the Mesa, Ariz., band’s long career. Since its origin in 1993, the group has released 10 studio albums. That includes this year’s Surviving, a stylish and hard-hitting collection of songs with hooks to spare and a palpable punk edge. Jimmy Eat World perform on Wednesday, November 13, at the Higher Ground Ballroom in South Burlington. Pronoun open. at Higher Ground Ballroom in South Burlington. Chittenden County (map). $35/39.

    What if the ancient myth of the goddess Persephone took place in modern times? Greek deities get a glamorous makeover for Mythic, Marcus Stevens and Oran Eldor’s new pop-rock musical. It follows the eventual queen of the underworld on a journey of self-discovery in a world where gods take the form of rock stars, politicians and socialites. The offspring of a boho-chic Demeter encounters her all-powerful father Zeus, bad boy Hades and the Britney Spears-esque goddess of love Aphrodite, played by Jessica Gallant (pictured). The Segal Centre for Performing Arts presents the North American premiere of the immortal musical propelled by epic anthems and the complexity of the mother-daughter relationship. at Sylvan Adams Theatre, Segal Centre for Performing Arts in Montréal. Outside Vermont (map). $53-67.

    The Brooklyn-based artist calls the contents of her exhibit “paintings and comics.” And so they are. But that doesn’t really explain her unique combination of cartoon-y line drawing, acrylic paint and fabric-inspired backgrounds (specifically, William Morris textiles). With speech bubble overlays, the works are meme-ready. In “Say Nice Things to Me,” currently at Scavenger Gallery in White River Junction, Musgrove further explains in an artist statement that she explores memoir through various modes. Visitors to the petite jewelry shop and gallery can ponder paintings that the artist says dissect an affair “for the purpose of posterity, insight and reckoning.” at Scavenger Gallery in White River Junction.

    Through Dec. 31

    “Anatomy of a Pond” is an apt title for an exhibition of paintings by Adelaide Murphy Tyrol. The natural world — in this case a half-acre body of water on her Plainfield property — has long been a dominant inspiration. Her exhibition, which she calls a “visual biography,” explores the inhabitants of that pond, as well as how the light transforms it. She writes, “The artwork here is an inquiry and an homage to this constantly shifting landscape, both interior and exterior.” Indeed, from the large-scale commercial backdrops she paints in New York City to her intimate illustrations of flora and fauna close to home, Tyrol captures her subjects with both exacting realism and a sense of wonder. Of her paintings on view at Montpelier’s North Branch Nature Center, she writes, “I hope they impart a sense of the magic of our world — of what we look at every day and what blinks back at us.” at North Branch Nature Center in Montpelier.

    'Resist! Insist! Persist!'

    Tools

    Through Dec. 13

    It is a sad fact of human evolution that there are so many reasons to express resistance to one another. University of Vermont students in a 2018 art history class chose the timely topic, curating an exhibition at the Fleming Museum of Art with artworks and objects primarily drawn from the museum’s permanent collection. The show features the work “of historical and contemporary artists who have countered adversity and hardship with empowerment and expression,” explains exhibition text. The subjects range from racial violence to political suppression to the underrepresentation of women in the art world. at Fleming Museum of Art, University of Vermont in Burlington (map). Free with museum admission.
