Wojcicki and Só Sol at Stage 33 Live
BELLOWS FALLS — Wojcicki [‘Voy-CHEECH-key’] will celebrate the release of their second album, “Failure to Illuminate”, with a concert at the Stage 33 Live listening room in Bellows Falls, Vermont, on Saturday, July 2 at 7:00 PM, with very special guests Só Sol. Tickets are $10 in advance through stage33live.com, or $15 at the door. Limited seating. The performance will be recorded and filmed.
Wojcicki is the vehicle for songwriter and performer Matt Sharff, along with his long-time musical conspirators Bethanie Yeakle and Garth Tichy. Sharff began performing in his teens with bands in his native New York City at venues like CBGB, Max’s Kansas City, Brownies, Mercury Lounge, and The Fort. Since relocating to Southern Vermont, he’s played from NXNE in Toronto to SXSW in Austin, sharing stages with broadly diverse artists including Emmylou Harris, The Jayhawks, Bill Kirchen, The Silos, Mark Mulcahy, Roky Erikson, NRBQ, The Misfits, and Bernie Sanders. He’s recorded and performed with Adam Yauch (Beastie Boys), T-Bone Wolk (Hall & Oates), Buddy Cage (New Riders of the Purple Sage), Dan and Claudia Zanes, Jon Carroll (Starlight Vocal Band), and more.
Só Sol is a Massachusetts-based Brazilian/American husband-and-wife duo with a vintage sound drawing on old soul, Americana, ’60s Tropicália, folk, bluegrass, and rock. Formed thirteen years ago by Jessica DaSilva and John Garrett, they perform original songs featuring guitar, foot percussion, banjo, and vocal harmonies, transitioning effortlessly between lyrics in English and Brazilian Portuguese.
The COVID-19 protocol will be the guidelines in effect in the community on show day. Currently the guidance is that masks are optional, which may change without notice. Seating will be a minimum of eight feet from the stage, and set up in pods. If you wish to make a custom pod for your party, arrive early to do so. People who have already arrived and have arranged their seating will not be expected to move, and their perimeter should be honored.
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 this season 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 helped fund improvements and maintenance, and generally smooth 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.
