Jay Bennett & Edward Burch- Old Ironsides, Sacramento Ca 8/16/02 xfer from DAT master Wilco

Since word is coming out that Old Ironsides has been sold, I figured I would post a couple of classic Old I shows as a tribute to longtime owners (the Kanelos family). So many amazing shows happened there over the years- the first time I even heard of the place was due to a surprise Pavement show happening in early 1993 while I lived in Whittier. So many fun moments there, but my favorite was probably the Barbara Manning show – it was the last show of a 6 week tour that I booked, it was my birthday, and they bought me a cake and brought me up on stage to sing happy birthday.
Anyway, here is a show that Jim McLain and I taped about 20 years ago. Jim has always been Old I’s taping mainstay, thank goodness. I think this was a soundboard/audience matrix with Jim’s mics. I plugged my DAT in as well.
For the uninitiated- Jay was in Wilco from 1995-2001 and was a driving force behind the early albums.. especially Summerteeth. A documentary “Where are You Jay Bennett” was released recently.

Go National- Concerts in the Park, Cesar Chavez Plaza 8/2/02 Audio only sbd w/ Jonah Matranga Far

Here’s a show that I had no recollection of even being there, and then a bunch of memories came back to me after listening to it. I attended/recorded 2 Go National shows at CIP- one at the Miller Park location in 2000 and this one in 2002. I am not sure if this picture is from the actual 2002 show, but since it is the only Go National CIP photo I had ever seen, it is shown here. Includes a short unannounced bonus set by Jonah Matranga from Far at the end.

Recorded by: Shayne Stacy (I think Jim Mclain recorded as well)
Recording equipment used: Sony TCD-D7 DAT in soundboard

Rebalance in Izotope rx7 (bass, drums, guitar +3)

Groovie Ghoulies- Concerts in the Park, Cesar Chavez Plaza, Sacramento 8/2/02 Sbd from Master DAT

Man, this is a great performance. The band’s parents were there along with just about the entire Sacramento punk scene, and you could tell that they were pumped. It sounds like they just returned from tour. This is one of the longest CIP sets I had ever heard.
The board mix was good to start, but I played around with it in Izotope and I like it even better now.
Features a Monkees cover- R.I.P. nez.
Jim, did you shoot video? I only have this DAT soundboard.
