The End of America and Oshima Brothers at Stage 33 Live – 11/2/19

BELLOWS FALLS – The End Of America returns to Stage 33 Live on Saturday, November 2, co-headlining with Oshima Brothers. This is the first show of an Eastern US tour by the two bands.

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. David Crosby of Crosby, Stills & Nash tweeted, “they sound great.”

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.

Saturday, November 2; door at 6:00 PM, music at 7:00 at 33 Bridge Street in Bellows Falls, Vermont.

Stage 33 Live is an intimate, industrial-rustic listening room in a former factory with 40 chairs. Advance tickets are available online at $25 best-in-house / $20 darned-good-seats / $15 chair-not-guaranteed. When 40 chairs are spoken for, the $25 and $20 options will be closed. $20 at the door; if any chairs behind the reserved rows are still available on show day, those will be available first-come first-served. 100% 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 Street in Bellows Falls, VT, and documents live performances and presentations of original material on a simple stage for downstream audiences. No kitchen, no liquor license; establishments with those things are nearby. Coffee, soda, water, and weird snacks by donation.

For your editorial pleasure, a video from The End Of America’s first time at Stage 33 Live – a song about Chester, Vermont called “Grew Up Here” (preceded by some discussion of dog tattoos). We have better stage lights now.
