10/13/19, Sunday: Spike Dogtooth and Sam Duffy

Festival-jam favorites to play Stage 33 Live

BELLOWS FALLS — Spike Dogtooth plays acoustic music without restriction — bluegrass, Irish, cowgirl-swing, folk, acoustic rock, country blues. The Brattleboro-based band’s core players and revolving crew of guest musicians have developed a loyal following since 1996. (Interesting trivia note: They played the first-ever Strolling of the Heifers.)

A campground favorite at music festivals over the past 30 years, they’re best known for their legendary all-night jams. This is a rare opportunity to hear them play on a stage that’s inside of a building, showcasing all-original tunes.

At the band’s enthusiastic request, Sam Duffy opens and they’re planning to participate in each other’s sets.

There will be dancing room in front of the stage.

Door at 6:00 PM, music at 7:00 on Sunday, October 13 — a suggested donation of $5+ at the door. There are no presale tickets. Seating is limited to 40, first-come first-served. There’s also plenty of standing room; attendees may bring their own camp-style seating if they wish.

The listening event will be recorded and filmed.

Stage 33 Live is located at 33 Bridge Street in Bellows Falls, VT, and documents live performances and presentations of original material on a small stage in a former factory building for downstream audiences. Its listening events are all about honoring the stage — not sticking it in the corner and talking over it. No kitchen, no liquor license, but you can find establishments with those things nearby. Coffee, soda, water, and weird snacks by donation. Find more info about the nonprofit all-volunteer project, and this and other other upcoming events online at stage33live.com
