Deep Purple- Toyota Amphitheatre, Wheatland Ca. 9/30/18 Live Audio Master

This was my first time to the Sleep Train/Toyota/etc Amphitheatre. I am usually pretty cynical of big shows like this, but this was great! I love that they don’t charge for marking, and the sound at the venue was excellent. We had lawn seats and it sounded perfect. I didn’t even need earplugs. It really comes through in the recording- sounds pretty damned nice.
Ian Gillan sounded great as well- even though he is SEVENTY THREE years old. Damn, I hope I can be that productive at that age! Haha.
I did not know DP’s material beside the hits but it didn’t matter- very relaxing in the lawn chair on the lawn.

Yankee Brutal- Press Club, Sacramento Ca. 9/20/18 Canon HFG40 Rode Video Pro Stereo Mic

Here is my single camera version of Yankee Brutal at Press Club. This is mostly focused on Wesley because this is supposed to be a 4 camera multicam, but 2 of the angles did not turn out so well.
Regardless, Yankee Brutal is probably the best fast pop-punk band in town (think pennywise/bad religion fast melodic punk). They don’t play every week, so if you see them on a bill, go see them. They are damned good and the new songs are next level.

No Fun at All- Press Club, Sacramento Ca. 9/20/18 Multicam Live

Funny story- my friend Agelos asks me to film shows for him, and most of them are those extreme down-tuned screaming hardcore bands. So I was pleasantly surprised to hear these guys- much more up my alley.
It takes about 8 minutes to get the sound dialed, but they sounded amazing. No Fun at All are from Sweden and have not toured in the US for about 20 years. I don’t recall them ever playing sac. It was a rare treat to have them at the tiny Press Club.
I managed to cram 5 cameras into that place!

Sederra- Press Club, Sacramento Ca. 9/20/18 Canon HFG40 Rode Video Pro Stereo mic

Man, what a week (and not just because of the political madness). Sorry for the delay in posting. So I have the kids this week which means that I am busting my ass day and night.. but on top of that, my computer decides to have issues. It’s either faulty memory or a hard drive issue. It appears to be a memory issue, since I can get it to come back after it acts like it can’t find the hard drive.
Anyway, I can’t upload anything or I blue screen. Here are 2 videos already uploaded. More will come next week after I get the supercomputer built… and I finish my frantic backups to blu ray.
Here is one where I left my camera running in between Yankee Brutal and No Fun at All. This is a stationary camera recording Sederra’s set last week. Enjoy!

The Polyorchids- Blue Lamp, Sacramento 9/19/18 Canon HFG40 Rode Video Pro Stereo Mic

I was pumped to see The Polyorchids after such a long time- I think the last time was at their album release show in April. Justin lives in Washington, so they only play a couple times a year now.
this show was special because they did not get to practice after a 5 month layoff. They just hopped on stage and went for it! Here is the performance, warts and all. It’s a bit sloppy, but they were still great.
