SHOWCASE 61 to Bring Contemporary Music Artists to Stamford's Palace Theatre, Beg. 3/27
"This series is exactly what Stamford needs, and best of all, most shows are free," said BT McNicholl, the Palace's Producing Artistic Director. "Stamford has emerged as a robust, diversified, and youthful environment. We're always looking for ways to engage new audiences and this seems like a perfect way to do just that. This has potential to be the Mercury Lounge or Rockwood Music Hall of Fairfield County."
Dubbed a 'listening experience,' the space will not only feature emerging national talent, but also special lighting, custom-designed tablecloths, a full bar with specialty cocktails from Berkshire Mountain Distillers and unique brews from Berkshire Brewing Company, and the option to order food via a mobile app from Station Eats. All shows are free to the public unless noted. The current schedule is below.
