The Moldy Filters and Jessy Griz share the bill on the Best Video Film & Cultural center deck Sat., July 10. The show starts at 5 PM.
The Moldy Filters, aka Chris Kiley, has a considerable following on Ceres Station, but has his fans on the inner planets and Jovian satellites too. Combining a passion for futurism, technology, and space exploration with musical influences of Irish folk, country, and a dash of sea shanty, The Moldy Filters exist in a space rarely explored by folk music. With his acoustic guitar in tow, The Moldy Filters tackles such contemporary subjects as the pros and cons of cybernetic enhancement to the terraforming of Mars, all with a wry nod to traditional folk music that keeps the listener grounded.
Jessy Griz is a New Haven based musician with a rich soulful voice and deep heart felt lyrics. Ballads are her sweet spot. Streaming her first single “Human” on Spotify with more to come.
We ask respect for social distancing, please, and conscientiousness on masks. Not everybody is vaccinated yet and our venue wants to advise caution and consideration for others. Masks are optional outside but required if you go inside Best Video.
No cover charge but please bring cash for the musicians’ tip jar. This has been a real hard time for musicians, almost all of whom have seen their live performance income dry up. (There will also be a Best Video tip jar for donations.)
Parking available behind Best Video and on Thornton Street.
