Strange night. This was a local guy’s “birthday bash” with 5 local bands and then The Skull. The show started late, and ran later as the night went on. Eric Wagner, who is the mellowest guy in the world was even visibly irritated about it. They did not start their set until 1am, ended at 2:30. I was hurting the next day- my daughter woke me up at 7 or so. That was a long drive back to Sacramento. Shot with the HFM30.
This is part 2 only- you can find the rest of the show on Youtube
R.I.P. Eric Wagner Well, Damn. This is a total shock. I kinda missed the boat on Trouble the first time around and became a big fan in the late 90’s. When I heard that The Skull had formed and were playing the old Trouble classics with Eric and Ron Holzner, I couldn’t wait to see them play. In 2013, they announced a show in L.A. but nothing up in norcal.. so I made a family vacation out of it and drove the 3 of us 7 hours to L.A. to see them play, and do some sightseeing in L.A. When I met Eric outside of the club, I told him how excited I was to see them play and how much I loved those early Trouble albums. Then I told him I drove 7 hours to get there- most traveling musicians would say the standard “wow, that is a long way- thanks for coming out”– Eric looked at me sideways and said “Why didn’t you just fly down”. Haha! He didn’t suffer fools at all. This was a birthday show for someone and there were 5 bands booked and the 2nd to last band played for what seemed to be hours. Eric was PISSED. It led to a hilariously sarcastic show with him smoking it up onstage with random fans. I have better multicamera videos of them on my site, but this was my favorite show. Thanks to Chris Lemos for bringing them to Sacramento. Twice.
Here is my original description of the show: Strange night. This was a local guy’s “birthday bash” with 5 local bands and then The Skull. The show started late, and ran later as the night went on. Eric Wagner, who is the mellowest guy in the world was even visibly irritated about it. They did not start their set until 1am, ended at 2:30.

I walked into a Kepi Ghoulie/Mean Jeans show in 2013 and there was this kickass band playing. The singer looked like he was about 12! The drummer was amazing! I went to the merch table to find out who they were. “Emily’s Army”. I did not find out later that the drummer has some famous relatives.
So, I went to Gilman with my newly acquired Canon HFG10 to film them. I also put a Canon HFM30 in the balcony. Well, neither angle turned out great so I did not edit them together, but they are both here for you to watch. EA at their peak here, playing to a packed house at Gilman. I went to unplug my equipment from the soundboard and the soundguy asks me “are you the dad of one of the band members” GRR. No sonny, I have been filming at Gilman since BEFORE YOU WERE BORN. Damned kids anyway.
OK, THIS is the multicamera version of the 7 seconds show I promised yesterday. This was my first multi camera show that I did on my own. Someone tripped over the back tripod, so the stage is not centered in the screen! Annoying. Filmed with 1 Canon HF200 and 1 Canon HFM30 cameras.
Good news regarding yesterday’s video- Jakobe from the Deathryders and Matt from the Cafe have given us multitrack stubs to mix… so you will be getting a MUCH better sounding video soon! Thanks guys! In keeping with the “I can’t believe I screwed up the video” theme, here is one of my greatest video f*ckups of all time. The band got to the fest super late- well after their posted start time. As they were scrambling to get set up, I asked if I could video and they gave me the OK. I did a 1 camera from the audience and it looked amazing. I was going to have it synched with this audio source, when I accidentally deleted it from the hard drive and the memory card and I could not recover it. So we only have audio. Sounds really good- enjoy. This kind of crap never happened in the analog days. Grr.
