    Hector Romero, Harder They Come, Sir Alec Jeffries

    Tools

    Sun., May 27, 9 p.m.

    Bronx native Hector Romero has more than three decades of DJ experience under his belt. Originally known as “Baby Hec,” the house-music maestro first gained recognition in his early teens at various hot spots in New York City’s 1980s club scene. In the mid-1990s, he joined record label and production company Def Mix Productions, which famed house pioneer Frankie Knuckles cofounded. Romero’s DJ mixes feature the genre’s prominent four-on-the-floor beats, spectral synths, driving bass lines, sparse vocal samples and heavy world-music influences. Romero takes the decks on Sunday, May 27, at Club Metronome in Burlington in the latest installment of the long-running house-music series Sunday Night Mass. Locals Harder They Come and Sir Alec Jeffries add support. at Club Metronome in Burlington (map). $12/15.

    Tools

    Through May 27

    Part of the Montréal Museum of Fine Arts’ series focusing on indigenous female artists, “Scattered Remains” is the Québécois artist’s first solo museum show. As a member of the Algonquin First Nation tribe of Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg, Myre has worked across mediums for nearly two decades creating a body of work that probes at questions of identity, memory and historical trauma. From 2005 to 2013, she invited visitors to sew their scars — of body or psyche — onto 10-inch squares of canvas; “The Scar Project” amassed some 1,400 works. Others reference traditional indigenous beadwork, such as the series “Indian Act,” in which Myre has modified the Canadian legislative document using tiny red and white beads. Most recently, in “Code Switching,” she re-presents the remains of pipes scavenged from the River Thames during a 2015 residency, toying with notions of the enigmatic artifact and authenticity. at Montréal Museum of Fine Arts in Montreal.

    Alvvays

    Alvvays

    Wed., May 30, 8 p.m.

    Pronounced “always,” Alvvays are a Canadian quartet known for nostalgic, guitar-driven pop songs dripping with ennui. Frequently employing lo-fi aesthetics and wall-of-sound production, the Toronto dream-pop band released the sardonically titled Antisocialites in 2017. The follow-up to 2014’s self-titled debut is cleaner and sharper but still retains the same sense of raw, precarious emotion the group delivered on its first outing. Front woman Molly Rankin recently posted a public service announcement on the group’s Instagram regarding inappropriate concert behavior, likely inspired by a 2017 incident in which a stage crasher attempted to kiss her without an invitation. As always, mind your manners when Alvvays perform on Wednesday, May 30, at the Higher Ground Ballroom in South Burlington. at Higher Ground Ballroom in South Burlington. Chittenden County (map). $18/20.

    Sometimes airy to the point of sparseness, other times deeply dense and layered, the works of the longtime printmaker are playful and tactile. Garand, who teaches printmaking at Amherst College, blends techniques —woodcut, monotype, pochôir, spit-bite aquatint, lift-ground aquatint, and à la poupée — for richly textured biomorphic vignettes whose forms seem to fluctuate and float like pretty slide specimens. at White River Gallery @ BALE in South Royalton.
