    Sat., Feb. 16, 7:30 p.m.

    Music lovers experience a bit of pop and rock history at a decades-spanning concert with vocal group the Doo Wop Project. Six charismatic singers take audience members on a chronological journey through the evolution of the doo-wop genre, which originated in the 1950s and features close vocal harmonies and nonsensical phrases. (Think the repetition of “Shoo-doo, shoo-be-doo” in the Five Satins’ 1956 hit “In the Still of the Night.”) The sextet, which includes current and former stars of Broadway’s Jersey Boys and Motown: The Musical, serves up ’50s and ’60s hits such as “Little Bitty Pretty One” by Thurston Harris and doo-wop inspired takes on contemporary songs by Maroon 5 and Amy Winehouse. at Strand Center Theatre in Plattsburgh. Outside Vermont (map). $25-40.

    Sat., Feb. 16, 9 p.m.

    Though its members are spread among New York City, Boston and Burlington, Hayley Jane and the Primates are tight as can be. Led by the effervescent and indelible front person Hayley Jane, the five-piece rock-Americana group adds a hefty dose of soul to its energetic anthems. In 2017, it released its sophomore album We’re Here Now, which finds the band mixing a bit of dance-pop and new-wave sparkle into its established rootsy sound. The record lands halfway between the dance floor and the countryside. Catch Hayley Jane and the Primates on Saturday, February 16, at Nectar’s in Burlington. The Groove Orient open. at Nectar's in Burlington (map). $10.

    '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.
