About this project
The story of Valentine's has never been told and I think it's time to tell it. If you're an East Coast musician you have either heard of, or played at Valentine's. If you're a fan of underground or local music you have heard of or been to Valentine's. As club after club closes it's important to keep a record of the ones that played a role in shaping the city - no other club helped shape the musicians of Albany like V-Tines.
Valentine's is an incredible venue for budding musicians, run by awesome people. And places for musicians to play in Albany are dying.
Sure there are still coffee shops for acoustic bands and clubs for electronic music but there isn't much left for the kids who want to play punk rock or metal or true rock or anything else where the amp needs to be turned up to 11.
Valentine's is important to Albany's culture.

Risks and challenges
One of the risks associated with this project is time. With Urban Renewal quickly threatening the location it's important to get the ball rolling.
Challenges during filming might include scheduling, which as a one man crew could be difficult. I have found several of people who are willing to help me with the project logistics, such as set up at Valentine's and post production.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
