    See Through Dresses

    See Through Dresses

    Tools

    Mon., June 26, 12 a.m.

    Self-described as “dream punk,” the Omaha, Neb., quartet See Through Dresses combine the emotional fervor of punk rock and the gauzy haze of bedroom pop. Their latest release, the curiously titled Horse of the Other World, comes out on June 30. Its lead single, “Violet,” indicates a progression from the basement into the club. Expect to hear more scintillating synths, shady vocals and lustrous guitar work. The band is simultaneously reissuing its self-titled debut LP on vinyl. Catch See Through Dresses on Monday, June 26, at Radio Bean in Burlington. at Radio Bean in Burlington (map). free.

    My Gay Banjo, Sam Gleaves

    My Gay Banjo, Sam Gleaves

    Tools

    Tue., June 27, 6:30 p.m.

    My Gay Banjo are folksy and fabulous. With equal parts glamour and homespun charm, the New York City duo transcends the Americana genre with an all-around queering of its classic tropes. Banjo picker Owen Taylor and guitar/ukulele player Julia Steele Allen play forlorn ballads, sweet love songs and few recognizable covers. Their music is deeply rooted in queerness, as evidenced by the title track from their 2012 album, Limp Wrist and a Steady Hand, and the song “How Many Kinds of Courage (Song for Chelsea Manning)” — the latter of which they penned for the controversial transgender whistleblower. My Gay Banjo perform on Tuesday, June 27, at the Plainfield Town Hall Opera House. Singer-songwriter Sam Gleaves opens. at Plainfield Town Hall Opera House in Plainfield. Barre/Montpelier (map). $10.

    Catherynne M. Valente

    Tools

    Wed., June 28, 7 p.m.

    From her best-selling fantasy and science-fiction novels to her short stories and poetry, author Catherynne M. Valente is something of a literary Wonder Woman. The Maine-based writer shares her super-powers with Queen City comics fans during a talk about her latest page-turner, The Refrigerator Monologues. With words by Valente and illustrations by Annie Wu, the book tells a series of six superhero stories with a twist: Each is from the perspective of a female character whose narrative is rudely interrupted by a male-driven story line. Proceeds from this Phoenix Books Burlington discussion support the Vermont Foodbank. at Phoenix Books Burlington in Burlington (map). $3.

    Busdriver

    Busdriver

    Thu., June 29, 8:30 p.m.

    Los Angeles-based rapper Busdriver has been spitting rhymes for over 20 years. He came of age in the mid-1990s Project Blowed scene, a sort of hip-hop think tank, workshop and open mic where many underground MCs got their starts. Despite connections with famous producers and other rappers, Busdriver seems forever relegated to the fringe, unable to shake the “indie” or “alternative” label. In 2014, FACT Magazine published what it referred to as the “definitive Busdriver interview,” in which he speaks candidly about his love for his hometown, the stigma of the “indie” label, the pitfalls of mixtape culture and his career trajectory. Busdriver performs on Thursday, June 29, at ArtsRiot in Burlington. at ArtsRiot in Burlington (map). $12/14. Buy Tickets
