The Freeze- Java Lounge, Sacramento Ca 4/14/09 Master Audience Recordings DPA4061 Mics Punk Hardcore

If you are wondering why I continue to post shows on the day (or days) after the anniversary, it is because cool people like Brian McKenna and Lee Osh keep posting flyers of the show on the anniversary date. That prompts me to pull the show out and get it up there, before the flyer image gets lost in the chaos that is my computer file system. Side note- if anyone has a flyer image for the Blackwater Cafe show in Stockton, let me know. Maybe Middagh has one. I need to post that show too.
I have been a big fan of The Freeze since the mid-80s. This tour in 2009 was the first time I had ever seen them perform. This show was entertaining because I was one of the only older people there and my wife looked totally out of place at the show as well. While The Freeze were playing, a guy with a mohawk and leather jacket came up to us, and started doing this ridiculous dance 6 inches away from us, back to the band facing us, arms flailing. I think it was a guy from the Snotcocks. I stood there quietly bemused since I was recording the show. I still smell his B.O. when I recall that memory… so thanks?

The Freeze- Blackwater Cafe, Stockton Ca. 4/5/09 Digital Master Live Audio only Punk Hardcore Boston

I think that this was the first audio recording that I had made since I got out of DAT taping a few years prior. One of my all-time favorite bands The Freeze were touring so I went to see them twice. I borrowed my good friend Anonymous’ gear and headed down to a tiny cafe in Stockton (that as you can see from the picture, is now gone).
The place was tiny, but there was a good crowd for the show. It sounded pretty good in the “club”(coffeeshop)- better than the Javalounge show the next week.
