    Wed., Sept. 19, 8:30 p.m.

    In 2016, Gaelynn Lea conquered the second edition of NPR Music’s open-call Tiny Desk Contest. The singer-songwriter’s haunted, eerily beautiful looped-violin music beat out more than 6,000 entrants. Since winning the competition, she’s released two records: a Christmas collection and the brand-new pan-Americana album Learning How to Stay. In addition to playing music, Lea gives talks relating to disability awareness and representation in the arts. She was born with osteogenesis imperfecta, a rare genetic disorder that primarily affects the skeletal system and has led her to play her violin upright, like a cello. Lea takes the stage on Wednesday, September 19, at the Light Club Lamp Shop in Burlington. at Light Club Lamp Shop in Burlington (map). $10.

    Fri., Sept. 21, 9 p.m.

    Anyone who says disco is dead has never seen Midnight Magic work their, um, magic. The New York City-based collective presents a pitch-perfect throwback to the good old days of Manhattan’s club scene. Powerhouse vocalist Tiffany Roth leads the nine-piece ensemble through ecstatic, funk-drenched dance jams. So bust out your polyester shirts and platform shoes. Close your eyes as the bass starts thumping. You’ll swear you’ve been transported back to the strobe- and laser-filled dance floors of the late ’70s. Midnight Magic perform on Friday, September 21, at Nectar’s in Burlington. Fellow New Yorkers Underground System add support. at Nectar's in Burlington (map). $7.

    Sat., Sept. 22, 8 p.m.

    “All I do is play music; I’m too lazy to work,” Jerron Paxton, aka Blind Boy Paxton, once told website the Country Blues. That may be true, but Paxton’s laziness doesn’t affect his proficiency on all manner of old-time instruments. Be it banjo, guitar, fiddle or accordion, the bluesman is a certified pro. His extensive catalog of early 20th-century tunes touches on myriad Americana styles, but primarily Delta blues and roots. And his stage name isn’t just a folksy moniker. Though he does retain some sight, Paxton is legally blind. Catch him on Saturday, September 22, at the Light Club Lamp Shop in Burlington. at Light Club Lamp Shop in Burlington (map). $22/25.

    Frank Turner & the Sleeping Souls, Bad Cop/Bad Cop, Sam Coffey and the Iron Lungs

    Tools

    Wed., Sept. 26, 7:30 p.m.

    British singer-songwriter Frank Turner weaves a history lesson and philosophical observations about post-Trump America into his song “Make America Great Again.” Appropriately, the album that spawned the tune, Be More Kind, touches on strategies for navigating the complex world of 2018. The folky pop artist has roots in defunct hardcore band Million Dead. That group’s legacy ripples through his solo work in the form of confrontational song structure and in-your-face lyrics. Catch Turner and his band, the Sleeping Souls, on Wednesday, September 26, at the Higher Ground Ballroom in South Burlington. Bad Cop/Bad Cop and Sam Coffey and the Iron Lungs open. at Higher Ground Ballroom in South Burlington. Chittenden County (map). $27/30.
