GWAR- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca. 4/15/89 xfer from 8mm master enhanced LIVE

Well, I did everything I could with this one. Gilman’s lighting was poor in early 1989, and that combined with my camera made for an unwatchable video. I was able to increase brightness and exposure to the point where you can actually SEE the band now, but it still ain’t great. Sorry.
OH, I am going to take a break from digitizing and enhancing my old masters for a few weeks. I have Patreon rewards to get out and people have been asking for trades for a year now. I’ll be back soon. In the meantime, browse the word cloud or the listings by month/year section of the website. It’s fun!

Operation Ivy- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca. 4/15/89 xfer from 8mm master enhanced Live

Here is that time that Operation Ivy opened for GWAR at Gilman. Yes, that really happened. This one benefited quite a lot from the enhancements- the stage was poorly lit that night. I bumped it up to where Matt is a bit overexposed, but you can now see the other 3 guys!

Jonathan Segel- UC Davis Coffeehouse 4/7/89 master video tape xfer enhanced Camper van Beethoven

The first minute of this video is a very short clip of Screaming Trees from Aggie Hotel from April of 89. It was so dark and there was no place to shoot from, so I gave up.
This Jonathan Segel show was the first time that I got to see him perform live. I had no idea that he was no longer in Camper van Beethoven, so when I went full fanboy and started gushing about the band he just said “I’m not in the band anymore.”. Whoops. Nice set by JES, doing songs off of his Storytelling album along with a couple of Camper songs he wrote. This is the first show where I used a mic other than the garbage stock one- it only took me a year to figure out that the camera mic unplugs and I can plug in a better one.
This was also one of those life-changing shows where you go to see one artist, and another band plays that blows you away. The Donner Party headlined this show and I couldn’t believe how great they were. I wanted to video, but they had already started playing and filming without permission felt wrong. Man, I wish I had filmed that set.
