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.
