  • Valid’s New Live Performance Compilation – Bandcamp Exclusive

    On Friday, Feb. 16th of 2018 the very first ValidTine’s Day Showcase took place at the Old Miami Music Venue, a Detroit staple. The show was a success, and thanks to Mega Powers accidentally leaving the recorder on after their set, we now have the full audio files of Valid’s performance that night which has now been released as a live album dubbed Valid Live At The Old Miami. This stage set is an assortment of songs that were released on Valid’s debut album and joint EP’s from the last few years. This free download is an exclusive Bandcamp only release featuring Valid & friends.
    Be sure to support Valid by checking out the description box on each track for download/purchase links to the original songs, thank you!

    Special thanks to DJ JMAC on the turntables holding Valid down this whole performance, Old Miami staff & Sound team, Dee Brundidge for the graphics, Tone Rizzo for the mix, Ellie Sandiego for hosting, Emile, Blaaq Gold, Ideeyah, Mega Powers, Slot-A, Jaws That Bite, and everyone that was involved that night!
