Vicki F, Things Behind the Sun play Fri., July 9

Vicki F plays the Best Video Film & Cultural Center deck on Fri., July 9. The show starts with an opening set at 5 PM from the duo Things Behind the Sun.

Vicki F is a rock musician and songwriter who was the lead singer and founder of The Dini Band from 2010 to 2016, and was one of the the lead singers and guitar players for the 80s post-punk band, Troupe DiCoupe, that headlined at CBGBs, Max’s Kansas City, other NYC venues and also Ron’s Place, New Haven. She is now performing originals in and around Fairfield County, Connecticut.

Things Behind the Sun is about two old friends reconnecting and discovering the pleasure of making music together again.

Mark Perrelli is a lifelong drummer having appeared with various local bands in Hartford / New Haven area including Editors and Poor Boy among many others. Rob Dauphinais plays bass and guitar and has appeared in several bands over the years including Editors, Exit Terra and Ponybird.

Together for the first time in 30 years this appearance will be grounded in song structures and may be labeled ‘folk punk’, Things Behind the Sun will also be gearing up for some louder experiments later this year including a prospective appearance at the Elm City Noise Festival in October.

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.
