Mirah, Norfolk and Western, Fauxbois, Oct. 22, VAC 

Though VAC has been booking a slew of in-your-face, what-the-hell-just-happened shows of late--from the hairy scary wall-scaling Israelis Monotonix to bloody battling brahs Le Fleur and Finn Riggins--they're taking it down a notch on Thursday, Oct. 22, with a folksy, laid-back bill. VAC is bringing back Portland, Ore., singer-songwriter Mirah, who played at a smoke-free Neurolux last April. Mirah, or Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlyn, is a long-time member of the K Records family and is touring on her latest release (a)spera. Another act on the roster is Portland's whispery, piano-laced folk group Norfolk and Western, with Adam Selzer and Rachel Blumberg (of M. Ward notoriety) and a rotating cast of other Rose City luminaries. Rounding things out is Boise's Fauxbois (formerly of Mayerforceone). While this show might not wow you with costumes (or, ahem, lack of costumes) and theatrics, it's bound to impress with a balanced blend of ballads and thoughtful indie folk.

Thursday, Oct. 22, 8 p.m., $10, VAC, 3638 Osage St., Garden City, visualartscollective.com. Visit bit.ly/mirahtix for tickets.
