No Accion- Toot’s Tavern, Crockett Ca. 12/28/18 Canon HFG30 Rode Live Master

I set my cameras up to video the headliner (Corrupted Morals) and caught the end of this band’s set. They were pretty good, so I thought I’d post it. They are from the Salinas/Watsonville/Santa Cruz area and it seems like they a nice following already, with some recordings and a tour under their belt in 2018.

Bastards of Young- Press Club, Sacramento Ca. 12/27/18 Canon HFG40 Master

This was impressive. One of the main guys in the band- Nick Ripley(Guitar/vocals) was very sick and unable to perform (the viruses are really going around in Sac right now)… so they went ahead and performed as a 3 piece, with Pat on vocals for all the songs. I guess you can call this “Patstards of Young” ha ha, err.
You can tell that everyone really stepped it up to cover for Nick’s absence. Well done!

Lightweight- Press Club, Sacramento Ca. 12/27/18 Canon HFG40 Master

What a stacked lineup at Press Club this past Thursday for the Camp Fire benefit. Lightweight kicked it off with their catchy pop punk. Donny (Vocals) was eating honey in between songs- the only other person I have seen do that on stage is Debbie Gunn (Sentinel Beast). Gives you an idea of his vocal style.

The Polyorchids- Press Club, Sacramento Ca. 12/27/18 Canon HFG40 Master

Since Justin now lives out of state, I try to make a point to attend any Polyorchids show that is announced. This was one of the best performances I have seen, and they played with a ton of energy. Sorry for the camera bouncing around a bit. I was rocking. and singing. Check out the new-ish album. It sounds amazing and the new songs are great!

KEVIN & ALLYSON SECONDS- Momo, Sacramento Ca. 12/22/18 Jerry Perry Benefit Taperjim

Running a bunch (4? 5?) cameras on 2 floors was a challenge and something was inevitably going to get missed. I ran upstairs after 99 Tales set to check on the camera at Momo and the memory card was full, and no longer recording! Luckily, I only missed the first minute or so of Kevin & Allyson’s set.
Thanks to Jim McLain for splicing in a couple of his cameras so it doesn’t cut in mid-song.

99 TALES- Harlow’s, Sacramento Ca. 12/22/18 Multicam w/Matrix Audio Jerry Perry Benefit Taperjim + 3

Man, it took youtube editor 4 DAYS to shave off 3 minutes at the start of this! First and last time I use that.
99 Tales were one of the bands I was most anticipating- they were one of the best alt-country/americana bands in the city back in the 90s, and I kinda missed out. They sounded great- nice matrix work by Jim McLain!
