T.S.O.L.- The Library, Sacramento Ca. 10/20/06 xfer from DV master Tape TSOL

I was surprised that there is not a single show from The Library on the sac music archive yet. I knew the venue was short lived, but I thought that there were a number of shows there during its return in 2006.
Here is the one show I filmed there. The band actually told me (jokingly) that this had better be up on youtube the next day… but I never posted it because the audio is so bad. I generally put a lot of effort into ensuring that audio is good, but everything went wrong with this one. I had a NICE (Shure VP88) mic and a NICE camcorder for the time, but Sweetwater wired the mic cable wrong which resulted in a ton of distortion. I think the mic comes unplugged about 15min in and then it all goes to hell. On top of it all, there were only dim red lights on stage, which makes for shitty video. Luckily I had a 3 chip camcorder so it isn’t too bad, plus I enhanced the video when it gets too dark.
But regardless, HARDCORE FANS ONLY. Yikes.
If anyone happens to have better audio from this show please let me know. I know it is unlikely, as the guy who usually has better audio is in front of me in this video, taking pictures.

California Oranges- Old Ironsides, Sacramento 10/13/06 xfer from master DV Panasonic AGDVC30 Band

I thought I’d mix it up a bit and post a video today. Here is one that I recorded back in 2006. I had a pro Panasonic camera for about a year, but I wasn’t filming many shows at the time and it was impractical for family stuff so I sold it on ebay… to a guy in the San Fernando Valley who needed it NEXT DAY without fail. Hmmm… I still wonder why.
Anyway, California Oranges is probably my favorite John Conley band. Nice and upbeat. They were around from 2000-2008. They came after Holiday Flyer and before Desario. Featues Katie Conley/Haley, Verna Brock, and the twins.
