    'New Voices: Night of Drums'

    Tools

    Sat., Nov. 17, 8 p.m.

    The Flynn Center for the Performing Arts continues its commitment to showcasing the intermingling of musical traditions in and around Burlington with its New Voices concert series. Now in its third season, the series shines a light on local and regional performers, many of whom have immigrant or refugee backgrounds. The first concert of the 2018-19 season, “Night of Drums,” features Ghanaian ensemble the Five Town All-Stars, led by drummer Victor Koblavi Dogah, and the all-female Korean drum troupe Sori Mori. Audience members may find that “the world rhythms of our new American friends and neighbors have reset the heartbeat of Burlington,” as the Flynn Center puts it in a press release. at FlynnSpace in Burlington (map). $15.

    8084 presents Love Not Hate, Joe McGinness

    Tools

    Sat., Nov. 17, 8 p.m.

    In the ’80s, 8084 rocked the Green Mountains with mondo power riffs and outrageous hairdos. Still active after three decades, the group embarked on its “Love Not Hate” tour in 2018, a campaign equally focused on rocking out and giving back. Fueled by compassion and empathy for the world’s injustices, the five-piece worked in conjunction with nonprofits and charitable organizations at each of the journey’s stops. The band also dropped a new single this year, the emotionally stirring “Why?” 8084 perform on Saturday, November 17, at ArtsRiot in Burlington. Joe McGinness opens. at ArtsRiot in Burlington (map). $18/22.

    Jess Polanshek

    Tools

    Through Nov. 30

    Last year she won the “Labels for Libations” competition to create a Magic Hat Brewing Company beer label. Her delightful, whimsical illustrations of the natural world and the creatures that inhabit it adorn prints, greeting cards and small goods. Her work is carried at Vermont venues and select locations around the country. Polanshek’s drawings are realistic but imaginative: She puts bighorn sheep antlers on bears, bat wings on pigs, tortoise shells on bunnies. A selection of her delicately rendered fantasies from the wild is on view at Speeder & Earl’s Coffee. Pictured: “House of Fox.” at Speeder & Earl's Coffee in Burlington (map).
