    According to the Outright Vermont website, young LGBTQ people were six times more likely to have attempted suicide in 2017 than their heterosexual peers. Community members can help carry the weight for the state’s LGBTQ youth by participating in the annual Fire Truck Pull. Teams of 12 or more muster all their might to haul a fully loaded fire truck up Church Street to raise funds for the Burlington-based nonprofit dedicated to supporting the state’s young queer population. Golden fire truck trophies reward winners in competitive categories such as fastest pull time, best costumes and audience favorite. at Top of Church St. in Burlington (map). $2,000 per team; free for spectators; preregister to pull.

    Americana singer-songwriter Rodney Crowell’s latest album, Acoustic Classics, isn’t a typical greatest hits collection. For the 2018 offering, the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Famer and longtime Emmylou Harris collaborator crafted stripped-down versions of favorites from his catalog spanning more than 40 years. Selections include the honky-tonkin’ “I Couldn’t Leave You if I Tried” and “Shame on the Moon Redux,” an earlier version of which Bob Seger took to No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1983. Guitarist Joe Robinson and fiddle and mandolin whiz Eamon McLoughlin join the two-time Grammy Award winner for a pair of Green Mountain State gigs. at Chandler Center for the Arts in Randolph.

    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.
