    Tools

    Now in its third year and with 25 group exhibitions under its collective belt, the Front in Montpelier recently announced that the artist-run gallery is adding six contemporary Vermont artists to its stable: Jason Galligan-Baldwin, Kate Burnim, Sam Colt, Mark Lorah, Michelle Saffran and Ned Richardson. The influx of new work ranges from Burnim’s subdued industrial landscapes to Saffran’s photo-based inquiries to Lorah’s entrancing, vaguely computerized abstractions. Bringing the gallery’s membership to 20 might mean more regular hours for the art space. at The Front in Montpelier. Barre/Montpelier (map).

    Bee Bee Sea

    Bee Bee Sea

    Tools

    Tue., July 17, 8:30 p.m.

    Hailing from Castel Goffredo, a pint-size burg in northern Italy, psych-rock trio Bee Bee Sea craft retro sounds for modern ears, expertly balancing attitude with goofiness. For instance, with its punchy riffs, flouncy lyrics and breakneck percussion, the band’s scalding cut “This Dog Is the King of Losers” feels just a wee bit ridiculous — especially when the song comes to life in its kaleidoscopic green-screen video. Dressed in head-to-toe furry dog costumes, the group’s members trade mystique for camp yet still come out the other side with disaffected rock-and-roll cool. Catch Bee Bee Sea on Tuesday, July 17, at the Monkey House in Winooski. at Monkey House in Winooski. Chittenden County (map). $5/7.

    Though fiddler Martin Hayes’ musicianship is rooted in Ireland, his skills are recognized around the world. Growing up in East County Clare, Hayes honed his craft with his father, fiddler P. Joe Hayes of the well-known Tulla Céilí Band. The younger Hayes has earned international accolades for his bow-and-string mastery, including a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for Instrumentalist of the Year and a 2011 performance for President Barack Obama and members of Congress. Described as “one of the best fiddlers on the planet” by National Public Radio, Hayes serves up soulful interpretations of traditional Irish music. at Cabot Town Hall in Cabot. Barre/Montpelier (map). $22-25.
