Jay Farrar & Gary Hunt- Harlow’s, Sacramento Ca. 5/18/18

I don’t know how many people know this, but I was the first “deadhead-like” guy who followed Uncle Tupelo around and recorded their concerts back in 1992. I did a week in the midwest, then a week in california in early 1993, then their last shows in 1994.
So, I realized that I had NEVER seen Jay solo before. I saw Son Volt a ton of times, but never Jay.. so I ventured out to the show. It was exactly what I expected. A polished performance, but not too dynamic. 🙂
I got shut down about an hour into the set. This was the second time I was shut down by their tour manager. I guess being the first guy to film doesn’t buy me anything now. Meh. I tried to ask permission…

Sewer Trout Experience- Blue Lamp, Sacramento Ca. 5/11/18

Here’s another appearance by the Sewer Trout Experience. They debuted at The Lookouting last January, and they have played a couple of shows since then. They dont have any regular Sewer Trout members in the band, but Hal does come up and help with burping on occasion.
They were well-received in Sewer Trout’s hometown, which was pretty cool.

Cringeworthy- Blue Lamp, Sacramento Ca. 5/11/18 Cringer

What a fun night with a killer lineup– a 4 band bill — and I really wanted to see all 4! First up was Cringeworthy. They were billed as a Cringer tribute band, but I think that is a bit harsh- Kamala was in the original band, and she was the drummer for Cringeworthy. Best performance I have seen by them to date.

I got there 1 minute before they started playing. Cutting the whole “being a dad/rock video guy” dichotomy a little close.

The Smoking Popes- Press Club, Sacramento Ca. 5/3/18 Star Struck One/ No More Smiles Live Multicam

This is amazing! We were so lucky to have The Smoking Popes come to the tiny Press Club in Sacramento a couple of weeks ago- thanks to Sean Hills for bringing them through. These guys have become one of my favorite bands- I just “discovered” them recently, thanks to Sean. This is a 5 cam edit.
