This one has a story behind it. So, I bought my first video camera in 1988 to videotape Op IV. Word started to spread that they were breaking up and this would be their final show. My friend Jason kept telling me to leave early for the show and I kept saying “nah, we’ll be fine”. We get there about an hour before showtime and the club is already full and there are about 2x more people waiting outside. So Jason and I make our way to the side door and I am whining, holding my camera bag. Someone says “hey grab this amp”.. so me and Jason grab one side of a half stack and walk in. Yup, I snuck in- it was my only time EVER doing that to any show. I kept my camera on my hand to ensure no one could see if I had a stamp or not. The opening band starts and they were incredibly great. The band was Green Day, and I swear that they were the guys who had us carry the amp in. So, thank you. If not for you, this video would not exist. Filmed with an Aiwa CV80 8mm camcorder with Sony ECM-909 mic strapped to the top. This was going to be a multicamera video, but we could not get the other angle & audio source to play together well. Anyway, this is a huge upgrade to my master because of Jim McLain’s brightening and contrast work- thanks a lot. Enjoy.
