    Fri., Feb. 22, 8 p.m.

    The darkness is strong with Brooklyn-based duo paris_monster. Full of mystique and disquieting experimental edge, their caustic blend of hard rock, dark wave, blues and electronica rattles with tension. Otherworldly electronic accents, pulsating synths, undulating bass and raging guitars create a swirling, molten blend of wickedly decadent avant-garde pop. The group layers its elements like tectonic plates, which slowly push against each other. Its tunes erupt in a fury of seismic chaos after building sufficient pressure. Catch paris_monster on Friday, February 22, at Foam Brewers in Burlington. at Foam Brewers in Burlington (map). free.

Eats and drinks by local purveyors such as A Single Pebble, Bluebird Barbecue, Groennfell Meadery and Smugglers’ Notch Distillery keep spirits high during this historical and fantastical fest. at Champlain Valley Exposition in Essex Junction.

    Sat., Feb. 23, 9 p.m.

    Montréal rapper Boogát bridges worlds with his Latin-infused hip-hop. The Canadian Mexican MC draws musical influence from traditional Central American, South American and Caribbean genres, such as cumbia, salsa and reggaeton. His hybrid sound is modern and fresh, yet it incorporates a bit of old-school, East Coast hip-hop crunch. Fully capable of starting a dance party, his tunes are also heady and complex. He finds good company with similarly chameleonic Spanish-speaking rappers such as Ana Tijoux and Mala Rodríguez. Boogát performs on Saturday, February 23, at Club Metronome in Burlington. DJ Bacon adds support. at Club Metronome in Burlington (map). $6/8.

    Sun., Feb. 24, 8 p.m.

    The ’90s brought a melting pot of musical sounds. Electronic music found mainstream appeal, hip-hop had its heyday and rock music fractured into countless subgenres, many of which were corralled under the term “alternative.” But most folks who listened to alt-rock radio in the last great decade tend to think of chunky bar chords, titanic hooks and a sense of lyrically wry insouciance. Though they’re a relatively new group, Brooklyn’s Charly Bliss could easily slip in between ’90s icons such as Veruca Salt and the Breeders. Listening to their debut record, Guppy, you’d never know it came out in 2017. Check out Charly Bliss on Sunday, February 24, at the Higher Ground Showcase Lounge in South Burlington. at Higher Ground Showcase Lounge in South Burlington. Chittenden County (map). $13/15.

Live music by the Grammy Award-nominated New Swing Sextet and an outdoor Iceblock social dance spice up the schedule. Nocturnal revelers can boogie ’til the sun comes up at after-parties with themes such as Neon Night and Pajama Night. at Hilton Burlington in Burlington (map). $40-195.

    'The Way We See It: Social [In]Justice'

    'The Way We See It: Social [In]Justice'

    Tools

    Through Feb. 23

    The exhibition space at Axel’s Frame Shop & Gallery is modest — just one wall opposite the framing area and displays devoted to local artisans. But a trip to the Waterbury venue will reward visitors, with or without framing needs, with compelling visual statements from four featured artists. Kate Longmaid, Ann Young, Jerry Ralya and Michelle Saffran pack a lot into that small space, responding to the theme of social injustice — racism, sexism, genocide and religious persecution — with evocative paintings, pastel drawings and photography. The works are as timely as they are cogent. at Axel's Gallery & Frame Shop in Waterbury. Mad River Valley/Waterbury (map).

    Talk about meta curation. For this exhibition at the Vermont Arts Council’s Spotlight Gallery, Vermont Art Guide editor Ric Kasini Kadour recruited nine other art professionals to each choose, in turn, an artist they deem “watchable.” Given the sheer quantity of capable artists in Vermont, the winnowing alone must have been challenging. In the end, the 10 chosen artists represent a diverse approach to contemporary art in a variety of mediums. They are: Sarah Amos, Clark Derbes, Hasso Ewing, Andrew Frost, Sally Gil, Sean Hunter Williams, Elizabeth Nagle, Andrew Orr, Rhonda Ratray and Jackson Tupper. at Spotlight Gallery in Montpelier.
