I have been a huge Girlschool fan since I was 13 years old- me and my cousin Tony Schwartz would listen to them while loading trucks at valley parcel in the early ’80’s. They were one of the only NWOBHM bands that I really cared about, but had never seen (Tank being the other). They played Sacramento in 1983, but I was too young to go. So, tonight, I was on the 3rd night in a row of filming shows. Filming shows with the G30 is like Yoga- you need to hold the pose and keep that 2lb camera steady. EVERYTHING hurt at this point- back, legs, arm. Everything. Anyway, the band came out and had some technical issues to start- one guitar was so badly out of tune that they screwed up, then stopped “c’mon let’s go”. From there, they seemed to regroup and put together an awesome set that drew heavily from the first 2 LPs and the first 7″. Great show! I recommend watching the latter part of this show (part 2-4) because that’s when they really get going.. and you should check them out on their tour happening now!
This is part 1 only- you can find the rest of the show on Youtube
