    Wed., Jan. 17, 8 p.m.

    Do you have a fun, charismatic uncle who’s obsessed with mid-20th-century nostalgia? If not, humorist Charles Phoenix is a worthy substitute. Aside from his appearances on the Food Network series “Cake Wars,” the entertainer is known for his expertise on bygone American ephemera. Phoenix showcases that passion through handpicked Kodachrome photo slides, which he presents in his hilarious “Retro Slide Shows.” With biting wit and narrative whimsy, he whisks audiences away to a time when avocado was the only shade of green and cars were twice as big as they are today. Phoenix performs on Wednesday, January 17, at the Higher Ground Ballroom in South Burlington. at Higher Ground Ballroom in South Burlington. Chittenden County (map). $20/23/50.

    Wed., Jan. 17, 8:30 p.m.

    In 2015, Montréal duo Blanka released its debut recording, Yasuda. The six-track EP has all the trappings of classic-era gothic post-punk: overdriven bass, clanging riffs and discordant synths that writhe as if from within a dimly lit echo chamber. Based on their recent single, “Fall in Love,” the two have even more darkness to unleash. The new cut marks the group’s shift into misanthropic goth-techno, in which razor-sharp electronic beats slice through the murky gloom. Blanka perform on Wednesday, January 17, at the Monkey House in Winooski. Locals Appalled Eagles and vinyl superstar DJ Disco Phantom add support. at Monkey House in Winooski. Chittenden County (map). $5/10. 18+.

    Andrea Gibson, Chastity Brown

    Thu., Jan. 18, 8 p.m.

    Prior to writing her profoundly political 2018 spoken-word album Hey Galaxy, poet and activist Andrea Gibson was working on a project solely about love. But the 2016 U.S. presidential election compelled the queer wordsmith to focus on timely topics. Among others, these included the Pulse nightclub massacre (“Orlando”), harassment of women (“To the Men Catcalling My Girlfriend While I’m Walking Beside Her”) and the Black Lives Matter movement (“Letter to White Queers”). The Boulder-based poet delivers verses with intense fervor while her folksy backing band underscores her words. Gibson performs on Thursday, January 18, at the Higher Ground Ballroom in South Burlington. Americana singer-songwriter Chastity Brown opens. at Higher Ground Ballroom in South Burlington. Chittenden County (map). $20/23.

    Fri., Jan. 19, 7 & 9:30 p.m., Sat., Jan. 20, 7 & 9:30 p.m. and Sun., Jan. 21, 7 p.m.

    “Saturday Night Live” alum Jay Pharoah is probably most famous for his spot-on impression of president Barack Obama — or maybe his take on rapper Jay-Z. Then again, he’s also memorably skewered Kanye West, Eddie Murphy and Will Smith, among others. But Pharoah doesn’t just mimic celebrity voices. The comedian fully embodies every famous person he imitates down to minor mannerisms and hand gestures. Since leaving the late-night NBC sketch show in 2016, he landed the lead role in the Showtime original series “White Famous,” a comedy loosely based on the life of actor Jamie Foxx. Pharoah performs Friday through Sunday, January 19 through 21, at the Vermont Comedy Club in Burlington. at Vermont Comedy Club in Burlington (map). $25/35.

    The Brazen Youth, PhiloSofie, Gestalt

    Fri., Jan. 19, 8 p.m.

    Nicholas Lussier and Charles Dahlke, founders of the Connecticut-based indie trio the Brazen Youth, are childhood friends who once performed together in a Red Hot Chili Peppers cover band. But their current project hardly sounds like the sunny SoCal funk-rockers. Overcast and full of ennui, the group’s low-blood-pressure debut, The Ever Dying Bristlecone Man, is a sprawling, orchestral opus. Tight harmonies and brassy embellishments suffuse a foundation of familiar acoustic folk, creating a richly layered sound that the band cultivated on an old farm called Ashlawn. Catch the Brazen Youth on Friday, January 19, at the Monkey House in Winooski. PhiloSofie and locals Gestalt add support. at Monkey House in Winooski. Chittenden County (map). $5-10.
