Making their roughly annual appearance in the Green Mountain State, Burlington-born klezmer-centric band Inner Fire District return to light the hills ablaze with Balkan, Yiddish and other Eastern European-inspired instrumentals. The brainchild of multi-instrumentalists Tim Lang and Vermont expat David Symons, the group has an extra-special reason to celebrate this summer: the release of its long-awaited debut LP, There Will Be Singing About the Dark Times. And in times as dark as these, there are few better ways to keep doom and gloom at bay than by kicking up your heels and dancing out your demons. Inner Fire District perform several times this week throughout the state: Friday, July 13, at Whammy Bar in Calais; Saturday, July 14, at Zenbarn in Waterbury; and Wednesday, July 18, at North End Studios in Burlington.
