    Algiers

    Tools

    Wed., Oct. 25, 8 p.m.

    Southern gospel, old-school soul and R&B, grizzled electro-pop, and high-minded rhetoric collide in the London-via-Atlanta group Algiers. Front man Franklin James Fisher is an outspoken critic of police brutality, sexism, institutionalized racism and unfair distribution of power, both in interviews and in song. The group’s 2017 album, The Underside of Power, is an infectious and timely examination of world politics, systemic shortcomings, social injustice and anti-colonialism. Raging, blown-out anthems and an in-your-face post-punk spirit bring these concepts to life. Algiers play on Wednesday, October 25, at the Higher Ground Showcase Lounge in South Burlington. at Higher Ground Showcase Lounge in South Burlington. Chittenden County (map). $13/15.

    Sometimes a snippet of song lyrics can tell you everything you need to know about a band. Take Boise, Idaho-based rockers Thick Business and their stinging diatribe “Pissy Vixen,” for example. Between bursts of elemental guitar riffs, singer and keyboardist Sarah Pincock shouts with fevered disdain, “I hate your balls!” She’s quick to add: “Almost as much as I hate your dick.” (Tell us how you really feel!) Fearless is the watchword for this psychedelic, garage-rock-infused quartet as it explores the sonic reaches of progressive rock and heavy post-punk influences. Catch Thick Business on Wednesday, October 18, at the Monkey House in Winooski. Local indie rockers Swale open. at Monkey House in Winooski. Chittenden County (map). $5/10. 18+.

    Fri., Oct. 20, 9 p.m.

    Burlington-based electro-pop composer Ebn Ezra might not be of this world. His debut album, Pax Romana, seems to come from a universe where time is cyclical — or maybe doesn’t exist at all. How else could he, real name Ethan Wells, manage to perfectly blend the sounds and essences of the past, present and future? His work is reminiscent of ancient choral music, new age superstar Enya, 1950s doo-wop, and 1980s synth-pop and R&B. A romantic, retro-futuristic aesthetic ties his music together through breathtaking ballads and thumping, danceable jams. Ebn Ezra performs on Friday, October 20, at the Monkey House in Winooski. Radiant Baby and the City View add support. at Monkey House in Winooski. Chittenden County (map). $5/8. 18+.

    Sat., Oct. 21, 9 p.m.

    Keep your eyes on the skies, because interplanetary trio Ruckzuck are about to land their spaceship in Vermont. The groovy Pennsylvanians’ galactic vessel may also be a time machine, because selections of their music sound straight out of the classic psychedelic era. Dreamy synths and guitars float atop swirling, funky bass riffs as walls of sound contract and expand. Singer Faith Kelly launches the group’s fantastical journey with dynamic powerhouse vocals akin to those of Jefferson Airplane’s Grace Slick. You have three chances to catch Ruckzuck: Saturday, October 21, at Charlie-O’s World Famous in Montpelier, with Acid Roach; Sunday, October 22, at the Monkey House in Winooski, with locals Plastique Mammals and Miami Summer Culture; and Monday, October 23, at Radio Bean in Burlington. at Charlie-O's World Famous in Montpelier. Barre/Montpelier (map). free.
