Joe Wilson & Forever in Motion

Location: R.A. Fountain

From our promo for this show:

Two solo acts hit Fountain for a free Sunday night concert of original acoustic music. Joe Wilson of Brooklyn, NY has released several CDs, and during a 6-week tour in June and July he will perform over 25 gigs ranging from Vermont to Florida to Michigan. He was formerly with the indie band Feeling Left Out.

Forever in Motion is the musical project of Vermont native Brendon Thomas, who is performing as part of a twin-bill with Wilson on each of the tour dates. His second CD, The Beautiful Unknown, was released just last week.

Wilson and Thomas are two more in an increasing number of “mySpace cadets,” independent singer-songwriters who use the internet and mySpace to promote their tours and merchandise. “They’ve developed their own kind of underground, outside traditional media,” said Albright. “Most of the ones coming through Fountain are college students who put together a tour with a friend or two for their summer vacation, and they always put on interesting shows.”

Joe Wilson and Forever in Motion’s June 25 concert begins at 8 p.m. Admission is free. Both artists will be selling copies of their CDs, t-shirts, hats, and other merchandise.
