Elsah- Varsity Theatre, Baton Rouge La 4/28/05 Xfer from Hi8 Master Enhanced alt.country

In case you missed it on the first Elsah post, here is some info about the band: “Elsah formed around singer-songwriter Neil Werries in St. Louis in 1997. Stories of growing up in rural and small town central Illinois along with a love of bands like Uncle Tupelo, the Meat Puppets and Blue Mountain inspire Elsah’s blend of punk, rock and old time country music. Werries relocated to Baton Rouge in 2001, continuing to write and perform with likeminded musicians. Elsah’s three-guitar front – Werries on acoustic, Sam “Boykin” Short and Glenn Harris on lead – is rounded out by Nick Butitta (bass) and Chad Townsend (drums). Elsah has remained as a standard bearer of Alt-country music throughout the Gulf South for over 20 years.”

Groovie Ghoulies- Boardwalk, Orangevale Ca. 4/1/05 xfer from DV Master!

Good morning! I am starting to get back into a rhythm of posting stuff, now that the move is done. I know a lot of people have asked for things- I’ll get to those as I find them. Things are still a bit disorganized. Here is a Groovie Ghoulies set , opening for 7 seconds at the Boardwalk in 2005. I don’t think I ever shared this before. Filmed with a higher end DV camera with stock mic (don’t remember the model).

7 Seconds- Boardwalk, Orangevale Ca 4/1/05 xfer from DV Master Tape enhanced w/ DAT Soundboard Audio

This was the first 7 seconds show I saw in 5 years. I am a bit perplexed as to why- I usually catch every show when they play around here. Maybe they were on hiatus.
This is a really great and fun show. I love when Kevin helps to direct the stagediver off stage- too funny. His voice is a little hoarse from being sick and being on the road for a month, but still sounds great.
Audio sounds great- Claude gave a nice mix and I was able to make it even better in Izotope. This was filmed with an older DV camera that was on its way out- it had a dead pixel and no image stabilization. The camerawork is a little shaky.

Groovie Ghoulies- Boardwalk, Orangevale Ca. 4/1/05 enhanced Master DV video rebalanced soundboard

Kepi announced something on his facebook page today- it is a cool new thing called “99 Lives”, which is a limited membership program through Patreon. A maximum of 99 people will be allowed and he performs daily for you. Sounds cool. Check his page if you are interested.
Here is a show I filmed back in 2005, and it could be the most “on” I have ever seen them. We don’t get a chance in Sacramento to see the touring machine that were the Ghoulies. We would see one off shows during breaks in touring. They are firing on all cylinders here- it bums me out that they only had a 30min set. I could have taken an hour set, easy!
