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.
