The End Of America, Oshima Brothers at Stage 33 Live

BELLOWS FALLS — The End Of America returns to Stage 33 Live, at 33 Bridge St., on Saturday, Nov. 2, co-headlining with Oshima Brothers. This is the first show of an east coast tour by the two bands.

The End Of America was voted “Favorite New Artist” at the Philadelphia Folk Festival, and won the Emerging Artist Showcase at Falcon Ridge, returning the next year as that festival's “Most Wanted” band. Beck invited them to play his Song Reader album release show. David Crosby of Crosby, Stills & Nash tweeted “they sound great.”

Oshima Brothers' acoustic folk-pop has been lauded by NPR's World Café, and they've racked up hundreds of thousands of Spotify streams. Their performances are unexpectedly full-sounding, with dynamic vocals, electric and acoustic guitars, octave bass, loops, and percussion or, when it suits a song, a stripped down, beautifully spare arrangement.
