Fertile Ground Festival

The 11-day celebration of theatre and dance kicks off with Women on the Scarlet Beast. Written by Caroline Miller and directed by Cassandra Schwanke, Women follows three generations of marginalized women dealing with their own inner turmoil as the world changes around them.

Post5 Theatre/City-Wide. Show $15. Pass $50. (AG)

sunday 25

The Vaselines

After many years without touring, the band is looking forward to a triumphant return. The Vaselines are punks at heart— the Glasgow garage-pop duo writes simple, earnest songs about love and love gone wrong that are brimming with energy and honesty. Bask in the glow of original members Eugene Kelly and Frances McKee’s contagious chemistry and poignant lyricism. 8 pm. Doug Fir. $18-$20. (JB)

Andy Stott

In 2015, electronic music brings to mind fist-pumping bros, MacBook Pros and minors in neon tanktops rolling on something that they overpaid for. It doesn’t have to be this way. Andy Stott is here for people who want to get weird to some blissed-out bleep bloops without having to deal with other people’s children. Stott is the Quiet Storm to EDM’s Top 40 bleating and you can expect the crowd to reflect that. Let his chilled-out and toned-down dub sounds wash over you and just... relax. 9 pm. Neumos. $15. (AG)

wednesday 28

Kishi Bashi String Quartet, Elizabeth & The Catapult

You might not know Kishi Bashi by name, but you’ve certainly heard his music. The violinist’s past work includes stints with Summer of Love-aping Elephant 6, weirdos Of Montreal and college radio darling Regina Spektor. His new solo project is a dizzying array of vocal and violin loops. Picture Imogen Heap let loose in an opera house and you’re halfway there. As for E&TC, you might know them from their excellent 2009 album, Taller Children. They’ve released several solid albums of lush, orchestral pop and are a band not to be missed. 7 pm. Neptune Theatre. $25. (JB)
