Man Made Tragedies in Bellows Falls

Man Made Tragedies will perform at Stage 33 Live, 33 Bridge Street in Bellows Falls, Vermont, on Saturday, March 5 at 6:00 PM.

This band from Saxtons River has been around for a while, dialing through the personnel and name changes that most young bands go through and notching up their game as they go. The current incarnation is front-man Ezra Holloway on vocals and bass, guitarist Jake Tretler, and Kiegan Eastman drumming. They’re loud and they have attitude. This is not the softer fare typical of Stage 33 Live.

The band was a highlight at BrattRock 2019 according to the festival’s founder, Jaimie Scanlon, who told local press that their set was “jaw dropping… really brought the crowd to its knees.”

They lean into American garage punk… not afraid of having fun, but equally unafraid of taking things seriously. They probably would have nestled in comfortably at CBGB in the late ’70s, in the pre-hardcore days.

The Saturday, March 5 performance begins at 6:00 PM and will be recorded and filmed. Suggested $5+ donation for the band at the door or in advance through the stage33live.com website. Nobody will be turned away for lack of money. Seating is limited.

The venue’s COVID-19 policy may change without notice, but at this writing all individuals are required to wear a mask except when eating or drinking, and maintain a six-foot social distance from people not in their party. Performers are not required to be masked while performing. Seating will be a minimum of eight feet from the stage. If you wish to make a custom seating pod for your party, arrive early to do so; the chairs are movable and configurable. People who have already arrived and have arranged their seating will not be expected to move.

Stage 33 Live is a casual and intimate industrial-rustic listening room in a former factory hosting local, regional, and national performances and presentations of original material. No bar or kitchen, the stage is the mission; coffee / soda / juice / water and weird snacks available by donation.

Stage 33 Live gratefully acknowledges the help of so many individuals without whom none of this would be happening, and institutional support from The Island Corporation, the Vermont Arts Council, Ben & Jerry’s Foundation, Covered Bridge Cookies, the Bellows Falls Opera House, and the Rockingham Arts & Museum Project that helps fund improvements and maintenance, and generally smooths out a lot of the rough edges. Stage 33 Live is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, and all donations are deductible to the fullest extent. Volunteers run the thing from stem to stern.
