Monks of Doom- Cattle Club, Sacramento 8/25/90 Part 1 (only for now)

 

So I always have an endless backlog of video & audio stuff to do for people (so if you are waiting, sorry, I will get to it). Right now, I am giving the Camper Van Beethoven documentary guys about 50 videos. They asked for some Cattle Club stuff that I had not seen in a while. Check out how great this clip is- and look what can happen when you turn the lights all the way up in that place! Seriously, great stuff. This was my favorite era of theirs.

Monks of Doom- Kennel Club, San Francisco Ca. 7/25/90 xfer from 8mm master enhanced

The kennel had those psychedelic light show guys at a lot of their shows in 1990. It’s cool to see, but it makes the stage darker. I was finally able to enhance this one so it is a bit more watchable. Greg was super dark before.

Monks of Doom- Cattle Club, Sacramento Ca. 8/25/90 xfer from master tape enhanced

btw, you can thank(or send hate mail to) Jim Rivas for all of these July/August 1990 posts. He asked for Rosebuds from Candlerock, and since I was poor back then I always used every inch of every tape. All of these videos were split across the rosebuds tape, or from another tape related to the rosebuds tape. Make sense? Well, it did to me.

Anyway, here is yet another Monks of Doom show. Man, they were prolific in SF/Sac in 1990. This one sounds pretty damned good for being shot from the stage at Cattle. This video was previously so dark it was unwatchable, it has now been brightened/denoised and came out pretty nice.

Sonic Youth- Crest Theater, Sacramento Ca. 8/20/90 xfer from 8mm master enhanced

This one has a story. Back in 1990, I was the manager of the office softball team. We only had 9 players on the same day that Sonic Youth was playing the Crest. So I drove downtown, showed up early to the show, set up the camera and had a friend turn it on. Then I drove back to Citrus Heights and played the game, then sped back downtown to the show. The camera does not move for the first half, until I get there. I also missed filming the opener- Nirvana. D’oh. At least I filmed them at Cattle…

The Rosebuds- Candlerock Lounge, Sacramento Ca. 8/18/90 xfer from master tape enhanced

When I saw The Rosebuds play the Jerry Perry benefit last December, I mentioned to Jim Rivas that I had filmed them back in 1990. So, at his request, here is The Rosebuds from the glorious Candlerock lounge. I can’t believe this place is still open- it was dying back in 1990!
The lighting was pretty uneven, so I tried to enhance it a bit by brightening and increasing exposure. You can now see the right hand side of the stage a bit.
The Rosebuds have always been one of my favorite Sacramento bands, and their performance at Jerry’s benefit was special. I can’t wait for everyone to see it!

The Boon- Candlerock Lounge, Sacramento Ca. 8/18/90 xfer from master tape enhanced

Here is The Boon’s set from that same show as The Rosebuds. The Boon were John Conley & Mike Yoas from Desario, Scott Wagner and I think the drummer’s name was Mike?
Anyway, this is the longest Boon set I saw, and we saw quite a few shows back then. My tripod was broken, so when it rested it looked like the band was playing uphill. I tried to fix that with Adobe, but you can still see the camera flopping around.

Monks of Doom- Pacific Coast Brewing Co, Oakland Ca. 8/4/90 Acoustic Xfer from Master

I have never posted this one because it was way too dark to even see what was going on. Now that I can brighten and increase exposure, you can kinda see. This was a much longer set. Since it was so dark, I shut my camera off 20min into the set. You can add this to the long list of taping regrets.
