Charger- Ivy Room, Albany Ca. 10/6/18 Single Cam Version Canon HFG40 Rode Stereo Videomic Pro

So every once in a while a new band will come around that blows you away. It has happened twice this year- Sad Girlz Club over the summer, and now Charger. I wasn’t planning on going to the show- I’ve been sick all week and need the rest.. but they posted their 3 song EP and I couldn’t not go.
Charger is Jason Willer on drums and vocals (Jello Biafra and TGSOM, Alaric, Cross Stitched Eyes, Enemies), Matt Freeman on bass and vocals (Operation Ivy, Rancid), and Andrew McGee on guitar. This is a MUST WATCH- it is great to see guys this talented playing together.

Deep Purple- Toyota Amphitheatre, Wheatland Ca. 9/30/18 Live Audio Master

This was my first time to the Sleep Train/Toyota/etc Amphitheatre. I am usually pretty cynical of big shows like this, but this was great! I love that they don’t charge for marking, and the sound at the venue was excellent. We had lawn seats and it sounded perfect. I didn’t even need earplugs. It really comes through in the recording- sounds pretty damned nice.
Ian Gillan sounded great as well- even though he is SEVENTY THREE years old. Damn, I hope I can be that productive at that age! Haha.
I did not know DP’s material beside the hits but it didn’t matter- very relaxing in the lawn chair on the lawn.

Yankee Brutal- Press Club, Sacramento Ca. 9/20/18 Canon HFG40 Rode Video Pro Stereo Mic

Here is my single camera version of Yankee Brutal at Press Club. This is mostly focused on Wesley because this is supposed to be a 4 camera multicam, but 2 of the angles did not turn out so well.
Regardless, Yankee Brutal is probably the best fast pop-punk band in town (think pennywise/bad religion fast melodic punk). They don’t play every week, so if you see them on a bill, go see them. They are damned good and the new songs are next level.
