UPDATE—RESCHEDULED: Pat Stone & The Dirty Boots, Stefanie Clark Harris perform Sat., July 18

UPDATE JULY 1: Due to the rain, this show has been rescheduled to Sun., July 18. The start time remains 5 PM.

Pat Stone & the Dirty Boots and singer-songwriter Stefanie Clark Harris share the bill on the Best Video Film & Cultural Center deck on Thurs., July 1  Sun., July 18. The show starts at 5 PM.

Pat Stone & The Dirty Boots is an eclectic mix of Americana/Vintage-Rock thinly veiled by some (dare we say?) Punk-Rock undertones.

The band has been active in Connecticut and beyond for close to seven years now and its evolution can be observed over the course of two full length albums and their latest six song EP, “New England Roots”. All three releases are available over iTunes, Spotify, and wherever else you stream your music.

The most current incarnation of the band operates as a power-trio ranging from a full on rock band to a stripped down format complete with acoustic guitar, mandolin and percussion.

Chip McCabe aka The Metal Dad wrote about Stefanie Clark Harris: “Harris’ music waxes and wanes between pure country twang and more accessible forms of Americana, often channeling another famous country Harris in the process. To say this EP [“Black Diamond”] was worth the wait would be a drastic understatement. It would also not be an understatement from where I’m sitting to say that this EP has cemented Harris as one of the best Americana songwriters not only in the state but in the whole of New England.”

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.
