Quasi- Empire, Sacramento Ca. 5/21/04 xfer from master tape! Sleater Kinney

I had been a fan of Samuel Coomes’ work ever since The Donner Party in the late 80s. I stumbled across Quasi by accident in 1997. I bought tickets to their SF shows in 1998 and 1999 (including one with Elliot Smith), and something always came up and I never made it. This was my first and only time seeing them. Check out R&B Transmogrification, Featuring Birds, and my favorite Field Studies albums. Also features Janet Weiss from Sleater Kinney on drums.

Camper Van Beethoven- The Warfield, San Francisco Ca. 5/15/04 VIDEO w/Soundboard Audio

 

Man, I cannot remember for the life of me how the band was able to get me into the warfield with my video camera, and they also gave me soundboard access. I wonder if their (super cool) soundman did that for me. Anyway, I am super thankful because the video and audio turned out great. This was a special 21st anniversary show, so EVERYONE was there- Molla, Immergluck, and all the regulars. Except Bill, Bill was not there.
