    The Feelies

    The Feelies

    Tools

    Fri., June 28, 8:30 p.m.

    In the 1980s, New Jersey-based band the Feelies were pioneers. They spearheaded the jangly indie-rock sound that would soon dominate the landscape. Even R.E.M. claim the group’s debut album, Crazy Rhythms, as a major influence. After disbanding in the early ’90s, its members reunited more than 15 years later to start making music again. Since then, the quirky outfit has released two full-length albums, including 2017’s In Between, which features a slightly folkier sound than on previous projects. Catch the Feelies on Friday, June 28, at the Higher Ground Ballroom in South Burlington. at Higher Ground Ballroom in South Burlington. Chittenden County (map). $25/27.

    Sat., June 29, 9 p.m.

    Philadelphia-based singer-songwriter Jake Brennan, a Queen City expat, recently unveiled a new album under his Violet Ultraviolet moniker. Titled As the World Churns, the eight doleful tracks recall the loose, carefree vibes of ’70s acoustic rock. His tunes tread into slightly twangy territory, especially on his cover of Tom Petty’s “Time to Move On.” In some ways a bit more raw than his 2016 Section Sign Records release, Pop City, the new album retains the artist’s candid sentiments and pastel imagery. Violet Ultraviolet performs on Saturday, June 29, at the Monkey House in Winooski. Locals Paper Castles and Dead Island also perform. at Monkey House in Winooski. Chittenden County (map). $3/8. 18+.

    Montréal International Jazz Festival: LowDown Brass Band

    Sun., June 30, 9:30 p.m.

    The video for the LowDown Brass Band’s 2019 single “We Dem Boys” takes viewers on a tour of a raging house party with guests moving and grooving in time with the funky horn-driven tune. Known for bringing elements of soul, funk and rock to the traditional New Orleans brass band sound, the group gives hip-hop lots of love on its 2018 album LowDown Breaks. In a review of the eclectic release, DownBeat magazine’s Brian Zimmerman wrote, “The group works to pay homage to the institution of hip-hop, setting its gaze specifically on the breakbeat, while keeping an eye trained on the jazz genre.” Fans can’t help but dance when the Chicago-based band hits the stage as part of the Montréal International Jazz Festival. at Place des Festivals in Montréal. Outside Vermont (map). Free.

    When high school student Dane suddenly dies of an aneurysm, members of his community must find their own ways to cope. This is the story of The Dream of the Burning Boy, David West Read’s drama presented by MOXIE Productions. The play, which premiered Off Broadway in 2011, follows Dane’s friends and family, including his conflicted girlfriend, sarcastic sister and devastated mother, as they navigate their altered worlds. The boy’s English teacher has a particularly hard time processing the tragedy — he even has nightmares about Dane’s death. Grange Hall Cultural Center co-owner Monica Callan directs regional talent in this poignant play about finding strength in adversity. at Grange Hall Cultural Center in Waterbury Center.
