Man, it is nice to see these guys again. Damon on drums, Greg on guitar, guy on bass at the pre-Cattle Club venue called Club Me. Sorry for the audio quality, that stock Aiwa mic could not handle volume at all. Super dark as well. I do have a soundboard recording of this show if anyone is DYING to synch them together…
This was such a great lineup- Operation Ivy, NOMEANSNO and Firehose. River Theater was a trek from Sacramento, but this one warranted the drive. I know Jason Ellis was with me, was Mike Yoas there as well? I am posting this one because I heard that NOMEANSNO announced that they are not playing together as a band anymore. They were a great, energetic band. I have no idea why I decided to video this handheld from the back of the place. Sorry for the shakiness. Now that I think back, I don’t think I bought a tripod until shortly after this. Filmed with Aiwa CV80 and stock mic
So the lineup for this show was Operation Ivy/NOMEANSNO/fIREHOSE… and psychefunkapus. Which one seems to be an odd booking? It seems like “the pus” got a lot of bookings at the River Theater. I did not go to a lot of shows there and I saw them play 2 shows there as one of the openers.

Hm, it looks like I never posted my Operation Ivy master from River Theater. There are a bunch of posts of this show on youtube, but none of them are right off the master tape. I also enhanced it (brightened/contrast/denoise), remixed “Anonymous” master audio recording of the show, and King Bean did the audio/video synch. It is still dark (my camera did not like the soft/low lighting of River thtr), but this will probably be the definitive version.

I figured I would take a break from all the Aftershock videos. I need a palette cleanse after so much punk & metal. This should do it. This was the first time seeing Short Dogs Grow. I traded for a live board tape from Gilman in early 1987 and became a big fan. By the time I saw them, their sound had refined more into the straight rock direction… I know they lost some of the old punk fans at this point but I still loved the band. This show is kinda funny- I think this is the first time I videotaped at Kennel and I did not realize I could film from the perch above the door, so this one is shot on stage. The original camera audio is beyond awful, so I took a recording made with a consumer Aiwa deck and EQ’d that one. I don’t remember this, but it seems that I left my (actually anonymous’) deck with a random stranger. Thanks for not stealing it!
