Outlaw Country Comes to The Extended Play Sessions
The Fallout Shelter at The Extended Play Sessions is pleased that outlaw country singer-songwriter Monica Rizzio is appearing at the studio on Monday, April 25th. I have been trying to see her for over a year and I finally have the opportunity to do so!
The locals call someone who moves to Cape Cod but was not born there a Washashore. In Texas, a young girl barrel-raced on Pleasant Valley Ranch and had never seen the ocean. So when Monica Rizzio crossed over the iconic bridges of Cape Cod in 2004, she instantly became the Washashore Cowgirl.
The former Tripping Lily front woman has left behind the acoustic, condenser mic style and has brought her East Texas roots up North for her début album, fittingly named Washashore Cowgirl. After leaving the band in 2013, she purchased a 1956 Martin O-18, named it Bo, and plugged in. For the next few years she started playing with a bunch of salty, accomplished Cape Cod musicians who helped bring back the cowgirl attitude and inspired her to write about her sometimes humorous, sometimes tear-jerking journey from Texas, love, and heartache.
Here is one of her videos to wet your whistle: “Long Lost Friend”
Much of the album is like a stiff cocktail, deeply auto-biographical and mixed with a hint of fiction. Rizzio wanted to write a song about one of her musical idols and penned “Willie Nelson” while being snowed in during a Nor’Easter. After channeling her inner-Willie for a couple of days, she found herself in a love affair with an older man, in a tale of two cities, with forgotten yesterdays. This ode to Willie Nelson won Finalist in the 31st annual Songwriters of Washington (SAW) competition and will be the first single released in early 2016.
This is a unique venue with very limited seating for just 55 lucky souls; every seat is no more than 25 feet from the stage. There is also enough room to dance, if the spirit moves you!
No flash photography or professional video cameras are allowed but you may take photos during the show… just turn off your flash and silence your cameras/phones.
We’re fortunate to have this band grace the stage and space is filling up very quickly. If you are interested in attending this event on Monday, April 25th, there is still a small number of seats available and will be confirmed via email. Doors are at 6:00 pm with the show at 7:00 pm and you can be included by contacting them via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Confirmations including the address are issued on a FIRST COME basis. Once confirmed, your seat is reserved. You must email for a confirmation prior to the show.
Guests are invited to enjoy complimentary food from our legendary buffet as well as beverages. Beverages and food are available during the filming as well.
The Extended Play Sessions at The Fallout Shelter is located just 30 minutes from downtown Boston in Norwood, Massachusetts (minutes off I-95 and Route 1) and has free parking right outside the doors! You and about 54 other people will receive a fabulous limited edition poster that the artists will sign to hang on your wall.
If you plan to attend please RSVP as soon as possible.
