    'New Voices: Night of Drums'

    Tools

    Sat., Nov. 17, 8 p.m.

    The Flynn Center for the Performing Arts continues its commitment to showcasing the intermingling of musical traditions in and around Burlington with its New Voices concert series. Now in its third season, the series shines a light on local and regional performers, many of whom have immigrant or refugee backgrounds. The first concert of the 2018-19 season, “Night of Drums,” features Ghanaian ensemble the Five Town All-Stars, led by drummer Victor Koblavi Dogah, and the all-female Korean drum troupe Sori Mori. Audience members may find that “the world rhythms of our new American friends and neighbors have reset the heartbeat of Burlington,” as the Flynn Center puts it in a press release. at FlynnSpace in Burlington (map). $15.

    Sat., Nov. 17, 8 p.m.

    In the ’80s, 8084 rocked the Green Mountains with mondo power riffs and outrageous hairdos. Still active after three decades, the group embarked on its “Love Not Hate” tour in 2018, a campaign equally focused on rocking out and giving back. Fueled by compassion and empathy for the world’s injustices, the five-piece worked in conjunction with nonprofits and charitable organizations at each of the journey’s stops. The band also dropped a new single this year, the emotionally stirring “Why?” 8084 perform on Saturday, November 17, at ArtsRiot in Burlington. Joe McGinness opens. at ArtsRiot in Burlington (map). $18/22.

    Collaboration is a surefire way for musicians to get their creative mojo working. Also, it’s just plain fun to make something new and special with your friends and colleagues. With that in mind, five musicians recently coalesced as Ghost Light, an improvisationally charged collective of heavy hitters from the Northeast jam scene. Holly Bowling and Tom Hamilton lead the ensemble. Bowling is known for her piano reworkings of Phish and Grateful Dead tunes, while Hamilton hails from jam-tronica outfit Brothers Past and Americana group American Babies. Raina Mullen (American Babies), Scotty Zwang (Dopapod) and Steve Lyons (Nicos Gun) round out the group. Ghost Light perform on Saturday, November 17, at the Higher Ground Showcase Lounge in South Burlington. at Higher Ground Showcase Lounge in South Burlington. Chittenden County (map). $15.

    Through Nov. 20

    The Colorado-based artist’s current exhibition at Stowe’s West Branch Gallery & Sculpture Park is aptly named: “Moving Pictures.” The phrase recalls an old-fangled synonym for film, and Harris’ abstract paintings have a decidedly kinetic quality. According to her artist statement, she thinks of her gestural, layered works as maps or environments, “exploring the imperfect, fleeting changes between the natural and the man-made worlds we navigate on a daily basis.” Harris’ canvases invite the viewer to enter and have a look around. Pictured: “Did You Hear That.” at West Branch Gallery & Sculpture Park in Stowe. Stowe/Smuggs (map).

    Last year she won the “Labels for Libations” competition to create a Magic Hat Brewing Company beer label. Her delightful, whimsical illustrations of the natural world and the creatures that inhabit it adorn prints, greeting cards and small goods. Her work is carried at Vermont venues and select locations around the country. Polanshek’s drawings are realistic but imaginative: She puts bighorn sheep antlers on bears, bat wings on pigs, tortoise shells on bunnies. A selection of her delicately rendered fantasies from the wild is on view at Speeder & Earl’s Coffee. Pictured: “House of Fox.” at Speeder & Earl's Coffee in Burlington (map).
