Second-Saturday Synthfest at Stage 33 Live
January 13 at 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$10
There will be two electronic music performance concerts celebrating synthesizers, circuit-bending, and sound manipulation on the second Saturdays of the first two months of 2024 — January 13 and February 10 — at Stage 33 Live, 33 Bridge Street in Bellows Falls, Vermont.
Each session will open with a meet-and-greet at 6:00 PM. Get up close to the gear (don’t touch though), talk with the performers, settle into the space. Five 20-minute performances will begin at 7:00.
Players will be in the center of the room, with the audience in the round and encouraged to roam throughout the show. The performances are expected to range from cinematic and lush to computeresque and urgent. It may get loud.
Session 1 performers on January 13 include three from NYC — Metamyther, cameron.wav, and makamqore — along with Thomas Nöla of Vermont, and B.B. Dozer of New Hampshire.
Session 2 performers on February 10 include Repairer of Reputations from Rhode Island, Acacia Bridge from New York, and three from Vermont: Thorny, Malcolm McShinsky, and Uku Meri.
Suggested $10 donation in advance through stage33live.com or at the door per event, all proceeds benefit the performers. No one will be turned away for lack of money. Advance donations through stage33live.com guarantee entry if the session sells out.
Seating is limited. All performances will be recorded and filmed.
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 able to happen, and institutional support this season from The Island Corporation, the Vermont Arts Council, Guilford Sound, WOOL-FM, the Rockingham Arts & Museum Project, and Chroma Technologies to help 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.
