The Shellye Valauskas Experience play Best Video Sat., June 25

The Shellye Valauskas Experience plays the Best Video Film & Cultural Center deck Sat., June 25, 2022. The show starts at 6 PM.

(This show was originally scheduled for 5 PM outside but that changed when the Hamden Planning & Zoning office told BVFCC we could not continue the outside shows.)

Based in the New Haven area, Shellye Valauskas and Dean Falcone have been making music together for years. In addition to being Valauskas’ songwriting collaborator, bandmate & producer, Falcone has served the Connecticut music scene since the early ’80s with Jon Brion in The Excerpts, his own Dean and the Dragsters and a host of others. He has also worked on a national level collaborating with Norah Jones, Brian May (Queen), Aimee Mann, Lydia Loveless, Susannah Hoffs and Neko Case. Valauskas and Falcone’s shared love for the punchy pop of Crowded House, The Posies and Aimee Mann helped them nail a distinctive yet accessible radio-friendly sound from the start.

Valauskas and Falcone will be joined at this show by Brian Stevens (bass), Jim Balga (percussion), and Bruce Crowder (keyboards). The Shellye Valauskas Experience released their full-length LP “History of Panic” to rave reviews. Robert L. Ross at Popdose declared, “That’s the key thing – it satisfies on every level. The entire album. Listen to this and tell me you’re not instantly in love with it. It’s impossible to not be.”

As an inside show, these are the protocols: proof of vax and masks required.
