    Jessica Lang Dance

    Sat., April 21, 8 p.m.

    When creating her military-themed dance work, Thousand Yard Stare, choreographer Jessica Lang kept the concept of respect squarely in mind. As she explains in a promotional video, Lang engaged in deep conversations with veterans and therapists focused on treating conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder as she formulated her tribute to the repercussions of war. Themes of fear, camaraderie, friendship and love thread through this poignant piece, set to Ludwig van Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 15 in A minor, Op. 132. New York City-based Jessica Lang Dance brings this moving meditation to Burlington on Saturday. at Flynn MainStage in Burlington (map). $15-46.

    She-Devils, Aspero Saicos, Famous Letter Writer

    She-Devils, Aspero Saicos, Famous Letter Writer

    Tools

    Sat., April 21, 9 p.m.

    Mining the sounds of ’60s vocal pop and surf-adjacent garage rock, She-Devils are a blast from the past. But rather than creating a simple retro pastiche, the Montréal duo boldly takes on the golden era of pop with tweaked-out synths and gobs of reverb. For their psychedelic self-titled debut EP in 2016, the She-Devils cobbled together instrumental parts exclusively from vinyl samples. But for their inaugural 2017 full-length, also self-titled, they stepped up their studio chops with an arsenal of wholly original loops. Catch She-Devils on Saturday, April 21, at the Monkey House in Winooski. Locals Aspero Saicos, Famous Letter Writer and DJ Disco Phantom add support. at Monkey House in Winooski. Chittenden County (map). $7/12.

    'Simon & Garfunkel Through the Years'

    'Simon & Garfunkel Through the Years'

    Tools

    Sun., April 22, 7 p.m.

    Tribute acts often take on the likeness of their subjects through costumes, makeup and mannerisms. The Bookends, an English duo composed of Dan Haynes and Pete Richards, take a more stripped-down approach in their homage to the 1960s folk-rockers Simon & Garfunkel. In Simon & Garfunkel Through the Years, Haynes and Richards forego themed threads and impressions in favor of note-for-note renditions of hits such as “Homeward Bound,” “Mrs. Robinson” and “Bridge Over Troubled Water.” Images, video footage and recorded interviews with Art Garfunkel and Paul Simon punctuate this dynamic theater experience. at Barre Opera House in Barre. Barre/Montpelier (map). $24-28.

    Margo Price, Aaron Lee Tasjan

    Margo Price, Aaron Lee Tasjan

    Tools

    Sun., April 22, 8 p.m.

    Margo Price is all about candor. On her albums All American Made and Midwest Farmer’s Daughter, the country singer riffs unambiguously about complex issues such as gender-based pay discrimination, the collapse of the American middle class and hypocrisy within the music industry. Fully accented with instrumental sundries such as accordion and pedal steel, the Nashville songwriter’s music shares the old-school Americana twang of Dolly Parton and Willie Nelson, two of her biggest heroes. In fact, Nelson makes a guest appearance on her surging ballad “Learning to Lose.” Price performs on Sunday, April 22, at the Higher Ground Ballroom in South Burlington. Aaron Lee Tasjan opens. at Higher Ground Ballroom in South Burlington. Chittenden County (map). $20-119.

    Sea Level

    Sea Level

    Tools

    Mon., April 23, 9:30 p.m.

    Portland, Maine’s Dan Capaldi sings in a high, quivering falsetto over trippy sample- and loop-based songs. Alongside his delicate voice, the one-man-band known as Sea Level incorporates a technological armory of effects pedals, synthesizers, samplers and other gear, including an augmented telephone receiver turned microphone. Imposing hip-hop beats coalesce with intricate electro- and lounge-pop sensibilities within complex arrangements. Topped with triple-decker harmonies and pitch-bent vocals, every earworm-y layer of sonic manipulation takes the listener deeper into a sonic abyss. Check out Sea Level on Monday, April 23, at Light Club Lamp Shop in Burlington. at Light Club Lamp Shop in Burlington (map). free.

    '10 Years: The Cameron Print Project'

    '10 Years: The Cameron Print Project'

    Tools

    Through April 29

    Collaborating with an established artist is a privilege not often afforded to students in undergraduate studio art courses. Thanks to a generous alumni contribution, however, the Cameron Print Project at Middlebury College has been pairing students in professor Hedya Klein’s printmaking classes with an exciting range of international contemporary artists since 2008. Offering up 29 prints made collectively by 140 students, this exhibition at the college art museum represents the fruits of the Renaissance-style apprenticeship model, with works made under the direction of artists including Derrick Adams, Mark Dion, Kati Heck, Tomas Vu, Rona Yefman and more. at Middlebury College Museum of Art in Middlebury.

    Nadia Myre

    Nadia Myre

    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. Outside Vermont (map).
