Lexie Mountain Boys 

Visual Arts Collective, June 16

To wrap your brain around Baltimore's all-female, a cappella performance art troupe Lexie Mountain Boys, sift through a few videos on YouTube. In one shaky specimen from SXSW 2008, the Lexie Mountain Boys stage a bizarre hipster pow-wow amid a cacophony of laughter, foot stomps, yelps and slaps. With the words "Hall and Oates" Sharpied across her belly and a light-up felt penis dangling between her legs, one bandmember chants while four others stomp around in fake beards and Native American headdresses. (See this video below)

In a video from the 2007 Baltimore's Current Canyon Fest, the girls are dressed in long pastel gowns that connect into a parachute. They fuss with flowers while emitting shrill, ghostly coos.

There's the video from Copenhagen in 2009, in which the ladies are clad in space-disco sequined outfits and fake beards chanting "This is Europe, eat some cheese."

You have to see it to believe it.

8 p.m., with With Child, Bales of Hey, Stephen Gere, Curtis Plum. $5, VAC, 3638 Osage St., 208-424-8297, visualartscollective.com.
