2/12/22, Saturday: (NIXED BY COVID-19) Eleanor & The Pretty Things with Slow Pony

It seems increasingly likely that this show will also end up getting postponed due to COVID-19. Omicron is expected to peak in late January, but high transmission may linger. Put it on your calendar and check back closer to the date to make sure it’s still on.

Eleanor & The Pretty Things is a dynamic alt-indie band known for live performances that range from downright shimmering to borderline screamo, always tastefully, and often within the same song. Slow Pony opens with accordion-centric music from the corners of the globe. Stage 33 Live, 33 Bridge Street, Bellows Falls VT, on Saturday, February 12 at 7:00 PM. Suggested $10 donation, more or less. Limited seating; recorded and filmed; masks required. More info at stage33live.com


Eleanor & The Pretty Things is a dynamic, atmospheric, emotionally charged alt-indie band from Boston known for powerful emo-leaning live performances that range from downright shimmering to borderline screamo, always tastefully, and often within the same song.

The members’ diverse tastes merge to create, as they put it, “music that helps us sort out the great big mess that is life” with lyrics obliquely addressing themes like isolation, detachment, heartache, and anxiety. But they’re not scary, stand-offish, crazy, or self-important. These are friendly, slightly geeky-looking people who love their effects pedals, who aren’t afraid to be heartfelt and, at times, awkward.

They’ve asked Slow Pony from Brattleboro to open for them, which just adds to the pile of cool. They’re an accordion-centric revolving cast of anywhere from one to many, performing deep-sea outer-space music from the far corners of the globe, some of which don’t exist.

This will be louder than our shows usually are.

The Saturday, February 12 performance begins at 7:00 PM and will be recorded and filmed. Suggested $10 donation in advance or at the door, or $5 if you don’t have $10, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Capacity is limited. No bar or kitchen, the stage is the mission; snacks by donation. Stage 33 Live is an industrial-rustic listening room in a former factory hosting local, regional, and national performers in a casual setting.
