BELLOWS FALLS, Vt. – The End Of America returns to Stage 33 Live Saturday, Nov. 2, co-headlining with Oshima Brothers, at 7 p.m. This is the first show of an Eastern U.S. tour by the two bands. Doors open at 6 p.m.
The End Of America was voted “Favorite New Artist” at the Philadelphia Folk Festival, and won the Emerging Artist Showcase at Falcon Ridge, returning the next year as that festival’s “Most Wanted” band. Beck invited them to play his Song Reader album release show.
Oshima Brothers’ acoustic folk-pop has been lauded by NPR’s World Café, and they’ve racked up hundreds of thousands of Spotify streams. Their performances are unexpectedly full sounding, with dynamic vocals, electric and acoustic guitars, octave bass, loops, percussion, and more – or, when it suits a song, a stripped down, beautifully spare arrangement.
Stage 33 Live is an intimate, industrial-rustic listening room in a former factory with 40 chairs. Advance tickets are available online at www.stage33live.com. If any chairs behind the reserved rows are still available on show day, those will be available first-come first-served. One hundred percent of tickets sales support the bands. Attendees are allowed to bring their own portable seating to set up behind the house chairs or to use in place of the house chair if one was reserved.
Stage 33 Live is located at 33 Bridge St. in Bellows Falls, Vt. and documents live performances and presentations of original material on a simple stage for downstream audiences. There is no kitchen or liquor license. Establishments with those things are nearby. Coffee, soda, water, and weird snacks by donation.
