Here’s one that I have been wanting to get enhanced and synched up for a long time. Finally, thanks to King Bean, Adobe Premiere/Neat Video and Izotope we can get it done. There are a lot more Old 97s videos still to do from the 1998-2002 time frame.
The 7th Note was a pretty big venue in SF for the 97s at the time- I think it was the old Wolfgang’s building- King Crimson played there around the same time as this. The band played the tiny Starry Plough the night before, and then this huge place the next night.
I remember it being full and stuffy in there. I don’t know if that is why my auto-focus freaks out often, or if it due to the disco ball in the foreground. It corrects itself during closeups, so it is still watchable… and it sounds pretty nice.
The last song cuts off (they played longer than expected), but the soundboard is complete. So when you see a blank screen with audio only during the last song, that is how it is supposed to be.
