The reason that I dug this 11/28/95 show out of the archive is because Richard Dal Porto asked. Someone please let him know, if you are friends with him. Be sure to check the tape lists and ask for stuff to be uploaded- as long as it meets the criteria (the band or taper has a connection to sacramento), it’ll get done!
This one sounds better than I remember. The PA was not huge- John Taylor did a great job making the room sound good. John is still doing sound in town, as the main man at Harlow’s and also doing some den of sin gigs!

This show happened a couple of days after I moved back from Whittier. My good friend Jim Utz was a big That Dog and Boss Hog fan, so I recorded it for him. I got there a little late (I’ve been arriving late to shows for 30 years!) so you can hear me walk out of the bathroom and into the club. It takes a minute for me to stabilize the levels. Melarkey’s was such a cool little club and Brian had a ton of awesome shows there. I taped/saw Geraldine Fibbers, Sloan, Redd Kross, Richard Buckner and Barbara Manning (before we were friends- she treated me like a stalker freak. haha). I kinda miss that place.

I usually post obscure audio on Monday, but since I didn’t post on Saturday I will make up for it here. Huge thanks to Gary Davis for digitizing his master video and sending it my way to be synched and posted- that was very kind. This one had a funny story- I had heard that Fugazi was OK with soundboard recordings, but this was L.A. and the Shrine was huge. I was not holding out much hope plugging in to the board for this one. I sneak the DAT in and head over to the board and my old friend Greg Dean was there! We had worked together at Valley Parcel and now he was running one of the biggest? (best for sure) audio production companies in L.A. along with his friend Greg. He plugs me right in and lets me stand in the board area (the place was PACKED). Meeting Greg here and at the Geraldine Fibbers show in Aron’s records parking lot earlier in the year reconnected us permanently. It’s fun to watch Greg’s world travels with Green Day, Social D, Megadeth, and now Riot Games. Awesome. The mix was great- I did a little rebalancing in Izotope RX8, boosting guitars and such.
