Singer-songwriter Andriana Chobot will premiere a video for a single from her 2022 LP Return to Sincere, "Galaxy Eyes," on Friday, March 17, at the Venetian Soda Lounge in Burlington. To celebrate, Chobot is bringing along singer-songwriter Jesse Taylor — who, after playing an opening slot, will do tarot readings — and a special guest, pedal-steel wiz Cosmic the Cowboy.
Chobot promises a "trippy, visualizer-like" video for a song about "exploring the themes of perception and being perceived," she wrote. The video will be shown twice, at 8 and 9 p.m. Any and all "spacey" outfits are highly encouraged, so go ahead and dust off those moon boots.

Needle in the Hay: A Benefit Concert Celebrating Elliott Smith at Radio Bean, Wednesday, March 8: If you needed a good public cry, Burlington's Radio Bean was the place to be last Wednesday, as 11 different acts paid tribute to the incomparable Elliott Smith. The show featured Cosmic the Cowboy, Lily Seabird, Josh Glass, the Leatherbound Books and others, and all proceeds benefited the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. In a week with so many notable Queen City shows, such as country gunslinger Daniel Donato at Nectar's and Screaming Headless Torsos at Foam Brewers, there was just something special about the tribute at the Bean. The night culminated in everyone coming together onstage to play Smith's "Happiness," and you could see through the tears that the room was all smiles.
