    Queer Dance Party with Wake Island

    Queer Dance Party with Wake Island

    Tools

    Sat., Oct. 19, 8 p.m.

    Montréal’s Wake Island play hard-hitting live electronica. Touching on hard house, ’80s pop, dance-rock and synthwave styles, the group’s music is propulsive, busy and extremely likely to incite a dance party. Named after a Pacific Ocean atoll located halfway between the United States and the Philippines, the band’s moniker symbolizes its members’ split cultural backgrounds. Philippe Manasseh and Nadim Maghzal, both Lebanese, explore their North American identities and their roots through their music. Wake Island perform on Friday, October 18, at the Monkey House in Winooski with support from locals Roost, H.L.H. and DJ Disco Phantom. The band also plays on Saturday, October 19, at Babes Bar in Bethel. at Babes Bar in Bethel. Randolph/Royalton (map). $5.

    Those looking for thrills and chills this Halloween season hop on the first annual Haunted Slay Ride, presented by Vermont Gatherings and Breakaway Farm. Geared toward adults and kids ages 14 and up, this creepy excursion isn’t your typical hayride — no leaf peeping, apple picking or other quaint autumnal activities here. Instead, brave souls have a scream as they encounter fearsome ghosts, ghouls and goblins. Vendors, food and drink, tarot card readings, and live entertainment are also on hand. Space is limited, so reservations are recommended. Hold on to your heads! at Breakaway Farm in Grand Isle. Champlain Islands/Northwest (map). $15; preregister.

    'Exposed!'

    'Exposed!'

    Tools

    Through Oct. 19

    Like seemingly every Vermont town this summer, Stowe is under construction. That work has precluded the 28th annual outdoor sculpture exhibit “Exposed.” from siting works downtown and along the bike path, as in previous years. Helen Day Art Center has scaled back, hosting just two sculptors on the gallery’s grounds, but that doesn’t mean the exhibition is minuscule. David Stromeyer, who lives in Vermont and Austin, and Brooklyn-based Tom Fruin both think big. Stromeyer and his wife established Cold Hollow Sculpture Park in Enosburg Falls in 2014, siting numerous large-scale, abstract metal works on its 200 acres. Fruin uses steel and Plexiglas to create outsize sculptures that reference buildings. As always, self-guided cellphone audio tours of the works enhance visitors’ appreciation. at Helen Day Art Center in Stowe. Stowe/Smuggs (map).

    'Conduits'

    'Conduits'

    Tools

    Through Oct. 31

    At the Vermont Arts Council’s Spotlight Gallery, works by three artists speak to the essence of art appreciation itself. Painters Richard Heller and Liz Hawkes deNiord and wet plate collodion print photographer Rachel Portesi “challenge the viewer to engage with the works, discovering connected meaning beyond what is seen,” according to a gallery statement. Heller’s paintings most literally hew to the theme with extraordinary spatial depth and infinite networks that seem equally rooted in mathematics and biology. Hawkes deNiord creates deeply layered paintings, allowing luminescence to peer through. Portesi uses an evocative 19th-century photographic technique that may inspire viewers to question their relationship to hair — and perhaps to pine for the heyday of analog photography. at Spotlight Gallery in Montpelier. Barre/Montpelier (map).
