The artists have made the difficult but entirely sensible decision to postpone this show, with the desire to rebook down the road.
Josh Maiocco showed up at an open mic at Stage 33 Live in 2018 and stunned everyone with a pair of skillfully wrought songs performed brilliantly. Since then he’s played the stage as an opener and a side-person, but this is his first headline in the room. It should be enough to say that he’s a talented writer and a standout player, but that makes for lean promotion. The fact is that there’s a lot we don’t know about him. Like, almost everything. We know that he’s not from here originally, but since arriving has played in tasty and stylistically diverse bands like Ingrid’s Ruse, Ninja Monkey, 84 Sheepdog, and the Ben Carr Music Project, in addition to solo gigs. There are hints that in younger days he may have played in New Jersey and New York City a lot. He has a lingering MySpace page with basically nothing on it that he probably forgot about long ago. He’s an enigma. Come and bask. He might bring an opener. Sunday, January 23, 7:00 PM. $5 suggested donation for Josh. Stage 33 Live, 33 Bridge Street in Bellows Falls, Vermont. Seating is limited.
