Weirdos- Stardust Ballroom, Los Angeles 2/22/86 Best of Flipside Video No. 6 xfer from VHS master

Here’s another one that was not on YT in any decent quality, so I digitized it with one of the JVC VCRs with time base correction, then ran it through the enhancement process with neat video. Happy to get decent 1080p versions of these out these, vs. the 240p crap that was up there before.
BIG props to the flipside guys for doing these multicamera videos live. That isn’t easy, and it is great that they captured them.

D.R.I.- Sherwood Hall, Salinas Ca. 2/21/86 xfer from 1st gen audio cassette tape full show DRI

Since I posted the Slayer set yesterday, I figured that I would post DRI’s opening set today. I was so pumped for the D.R.I. set as they had quickly become my favorite band at the time. The crowd did not appreciate them- you can hear Kurt mention that they were getting harassed a bit. They were great and the set is a great mix of Dirty Rotten and Dealing with it. Ricky always did a nice job recording shows, he was a good guy.

Slayer- Sherwood Hall, Salinas Ca 2/21/86 xfer from 1st or 2nd gen audio cassette

I usually don’t worry about posting on the anniversary of a show, but I see people posting and commenting on this show more often than most, so I figured I’ll pull it out and digitize it for you.
This show was memorable for a few reasons. First, after watching that life-changing D.R.I. opening set at Club Can’t Tell the previous August, I bought every D.R.I. thing (LP, 7″) and wore them out in 6 months. This would be the first show I saw of D.R.I. after being converted to a massive fan. Second, this was the first show I went to in a few months- I had lost my job in December (only time I was ever fired!) and was at a low point in life, in general. Me, Matt Polish and a bunch of friends piled into my 1985 Tbird and made the 3 hour drive there. Third, this was the first time that I was invited to hang backstage before the show- I had ended up back there afterwards, but Matt had become very good friends with the band so he (and friends) were invited to hang out… and I almost spilled the nails out of Kerry’s wristband right before the show. Who knew they weren’t in there securely?

RKL- Ruthie’s Inn, Berkeley Ca. 2/21/86 xfer from band archive cassette R.K.L. Rich Kids on LSD

It’s mediocre Monday! I thought this one qualified because the quality is not great at the start of the set, but it improves dramatically. I wonder if this comes from 2 different sources- the 1st part of the set sounds like a rough audience tape, and the 2nd part is clearly a board tape. Great set.

7 seconds- Freeborn Hall, Davis Ca. 2/21/86 Audio only xfer from master tape

With the news of Freeborn Hall getting torn down, I thought I would digitize this old audio recording. Between the non-professional equipment used + the volume + the acoustics of freeborn, this sounds like ass but what a great set. Early 1986 is definitely my favorite 7 seconds era- right after Walk Together and about the time of the DC Sessions from New Wind.

7 Seconds- Rock on Broadway, San Francisco Ca 2/20/86 xfer master audio cassette Hardcore Full Show

Here’s another one from Wayne Vanderkuil’s vast collection of tapes- we are just getting started with his stuff! I am about 20 tapes in of hundreds, if not a thousand. Now if work would stop sucking all my time, I could get them done…
Here is one that he did from the Rock On Broadway of 7 Seconds. I never tire of them, and was so happy to finally see them in September after a 6 year hiatus.

7 Seconds- Keystone, Palo Alto Ca 2/17/86 xfer from master cassette tape hardcore

I’m late today- too much happening at work. No week would be complete without a tape from Wayne Vanderkuil’s collection. Here is 7 Seconds opening for Dead Kennedys at Keystone Palo Alto. Wayne also found this sweet photo of a Keystone match box, back when clubs and bars did that kind of thing.
I EQ’d this one and was able to pull bass out and boost it up. The guitar is mixed in with all that midrange, so no such luck there. Sounds pretty good for the equipment, venue and era.

Dead Kennedys- Keystone, Palo Alto Ca 2/17/86 xfer from master audio cassette

It’s Mediocre Monday again! Keeping with the theme of “incredibly rare stuff that may not sound perfect”, here is an apparently uncirculated Dead Kennedys tape from their end times. The last show (w/Jello) was at Freeborn Hall on 2/21/86. Concert archives shows their show at The Stone in SF on 2/16 being the 2nd to last… so this 2/17 show may actually be the 2nd to last show. Wow!
If you are wondering about the picture I chose for this show, this is apparently the former location of Keystone Palo Alto… which later became The Edge in the alternative heyday of the 90s.
It appears to cut off before the end- if I find a part 2 of this set, I will repost the whole thing.
Fun fact- the non-Jello version of the DKs have apparently played about 75% of all shows billed as “Dead Kennedys” according to concert archives. I guess that proves that quantity doesn’t trump quality. Haha, sorry.
