Clean Girl and the Dirty Dishes- Mitchell Park Community Center, Palo Alto Ca. 11/20/21 4K UHD Rode

A few months back, I headed over to Palo Alto to see Barbara Manning play One Perfect Green Blanket in its entirety. I filmed her set with 5 cameras and I have been planning on editing all of the 4k angles together but I have not been able to get my workstation completely ready for editing- I always get busy with something else. It has resulted in a complete overhaul of the studio and I am just about ready to install the 4k monitor.
Anyway, here is the opening set from that show. I happened to put up a G50 on a tripod and hit “record” and caught some of the opening band’s set. Enjoy!

Tommy Stinson- Phono Select, Sacramento Ca. 11/16/21 Partial 4K UHD Lumix GH5S

I bought tickets for this show before realizing that I had a team party for my daughter’s soccer team. So, I booked it over to Phono right after the party. I was a bit shocked at the crowd- there were only about 20 people there- where was everybody? The show was so intimate that I kept the camera in the bag for most of the show. Tommy’s manager was very nice and gave me the OK to film the last 15min of the show.
At times during the set, Tommy would step away from the mic, unplug his guitar and play a song or two. You get that on the 2nd song in the video. I had to boost the hell out of the audio (+31db!) on that song to level it out. So if you are wondering what all the noise in the background is, that is traffic on Fruitridge- it was that quiet.
Still a great show despite the light turnout.
It takes me about a minute to get my act together with focus and exposure.

Ben Nichols and Rick Steff- Folsom Hotel, Folsom Ca. 11/14/21 4K UHD Lucero Americana Alt.Country

This was the strangest booking I had seen in a while- Ben Nichols from Lucero playing at a venue close to home that rarely holds shows. I think this is the first touring artist I have ever heard playing here.
Me and Anonymous get to the show and it was pretty packed and loud. It was like trying to record a band playing in the middle of a house party. It was crazy.
The intimacy of the show clearly made it special. Ben played a main set of about 70 minutes, then came out for almost an hour of encores. There is one moment(at about 95 minutes in) where the hardcore fans in the front were singing along so loud to every word, that Ben stopped singing and let them take over. It was an unexpectedly excellent show. It goes to prove- no matter how goofy the booking seems, always go to the show. You never know what you might see.
Oh, and my memory card screwed up early in the set. I think I only lost the first song. I now know to never use slot 2 on the ol GH5S.

The Dickies- Ivy Room, Albany Ca. 11/13/21 Late Set 4K UHD Multicamera Punk

I posted the single camera version of this set back in November, but we just got the edit done on this one. Both of these sets were supposed to be 4 camera multicams- one on each corner of the stage and one on drums. Well, things went wrong and I got 3 cameras for the early set, and only 2 for this one. I had a gopro in Stan’s corner and it did not start recording– I thought I turned it on.
Even with 2 cameras, this one works pretty well. The main angle had Adam hidden in the back, and the gopro angle shows only him. The rode audio sound so good that I did not even try to deal with the soundboard recording… especially after they get the backup vocals dialed in a couple of minutes into the set.

Dickies- Ivy Room, Albany Ca 11/13/21 4K UHD Multicamera with Rode Videomic Pro Audio

OK, buckle up, this is going to be long story.. but up front, the audio is NOT GOOD on this for the first 5min- it is Gopro Audio from the stage. Please forward past 5min if you can’t take it.
I coach my daughter’s soccer team and I didn’t think I was going to be able to make this show- the show started at 3pm- but I bolted out of there right when the game ended and made it to the Ivy right when Boneless Ones were setting up. I get permission to video them and I reach into my camera bag for my memory card wallet… and it isn’t there. I mistook my audio recorder case for the wallet. I am screwed- I am 2 hours from home and I don’t have a memory card for my main 4k camera.
I run back out to my car and begin a slapstick series of phone calls to local camera shops ($300 memory card- no thanks) thrashing through city streets to the Best Buy in Emeryville (20min each way) to beg employees to UNLOCK the memory card case NOW. I fly back to the Ivy, lose my parking spot and park blocks away, run into the club to see the Dickies setting up. Can’t believe I made it back in time. I was able to get 2 of my 3 Gopros set up and was able to pull it off.
Since my nerves were still on edge, I accidentally hit my start button twice on my main camera which started then stopped it, so I ended up not filming the first 5 minutes of the set with the main camera. That’s why the audio is bad.
Let’s not do that again.

The Dickies- Ivy Room, Albany Ca 11/13/21 Late Show Punk 4K UHD Canon HFG50 Rode Videomic Pro Stereo

I have a very lengthy story/explanation to the day’s events, but I don’t have time now. Things went comically wrong and hijinks ensued. I’ll tell you later. One thing that went right was this angle (I filmed multiple angles), sound quality and performance. This is probably the best Dickies show I have ever seen, and I have been filming them since 1988! The crowd went nuts in that tiny place (it is only about 20 feet wide)- when you see that camera panned back and jiggling a little, that’s when I am getting HAMMERED by flying bodies. Thanks to my neighbors for helping keep people off me- I only got it bad once, right in the midsection.
The whole show is great, but the encores are the best. The crowd did great on the intro to Killer Klowns!

The Moans- Cafe Colonial, Sacramento Ca. 11/6/21 Live 4k UHD Ramones Cover F Cancer show punk

For the first time since 2019, Danny Reynoso held his series of F Cancer shows around town. I already posted the Gene Chowder set from Powerhouse, here are a couple of sets from last Saturday’s show. It was nice to see so many friends- it was like a scene reunion.
This was the Moans first show since the before times. Special guest appearance by Tim Williamson, doing the lead vocals on a ramones cover. The series of shows raised almost $4k and Danny is selling a very limited quantity of some of the shirts. Check them out- you’re gonna want one. Link in comments.

Gene Chowder- Powerhouse Pub, Folsom Ca. 11/3/21 4K UHD Live w/ Misfits Ramones Frank Sinatra covers

Last night was the kickoff of Danny Reynoso’s annual F Cancer run of benefit shows. Here is Gene Chowder’s set from the show- this guy has an uncanny resemblance to Danny! Gene performs lounge-style versions of your favorite punk (and Sinatra) songs. Good times!
I wasn’t planning on going, but I had a 45 minute window in my day (school tour, then work, then soccer game, dinner/shower/bedtime for the kids) so I hauled ass, dirty and unshaven, to The Powerhouse and arrived right when Gene got on stage. What I am saying is, if I can make it to a show with that schedule, you most definitely can as well. Please support this and other local shows.
