Ross the Boss- Holy Diver, Sacramento Ca. 2/14/20 DPA4061 Audio Master FULL Manowar Hail to England

What a show last night. Manowar was one of my favorite bands when I was in high school, and I never had a chance to see them perform. With Ross the Boss(original guitarist and songwriter) coming to town AND playing my favorite Manowar album in its entirety, I couldn’t miss it. Great show- a few from the new Ross the Boss band, a few from other Manowar albums including my favorite song, Battle Hymns. So happy they came to Sac for the first time ever.

Victims Family- Warfield, San Francisco Ca. 2/8/20 4K UHD Live Victim's

Here’s Victims Family’s opening set for the Mr. Bungle show. I got word that I got a ticket a few hours before the show, and after some back and forth with security, I made it into the venue about 10min before VF started playing. It was really strange to see VF play in such a large venue. I am seen them many (20?) times in small clubs.

Mr. Bungle- Warfield, San Francisco Ca. 2/8/20 Live 4K UHD Live Video Scott Ian Mike Patton Lombardo

Here is a first look at the Mr. Bungle show from last Saturday night. I need to recover another 5-10 minutes of the show (including my favorite song of the set, The Crumbsuckers’ Sit There), plus I need to degrain it and hopefully find a better audio source to synch to it. Stay tuned. Regardlerss, this turned out pretty damned nice. I LOVE the ZS200.
So I went into this with no expectations. I figured they’d play the demo and a few covers as a goof and be done. I did NOT expect for my face to be completely melted off. What an amazing show- you MUST GO if you have the opportunity. Trey is a beast on lead guitar, Lombardo is (imho) the best metal drummer ever, and it was obvious they were all having a blast. Scott never stopped smiling!
I was able to cut down on the amount of out of focus shots by turning on continuous AF, but I realized it was eating batteries like crazy so I had to shut it off for the last 15-20 min.
MVP of the night includes the person who got me tickets (you know who you are- thanks!) and Daniel Hague, who not only gave up his spot to me so I could film, but he also stood in the merch line so I could get a shirt! Thank you so much.

The Knockoffs- Cafe Colonial, Sacramento Ca. 1/25/20 Lumix GH5S 4K UHD Live Punk w/Rode Audio

I was so happy to see that The Knockoffs, one of my all time favorite Sacramento bands, were added to the Field Day show. They played a short(for them) 30 minute set packed with all of their hits. I sang myself hoarse between this set and Field Day.

Gimme an F- Cafe Colonial, Sacramento Ca. 1/25/20 4k Live UHD Kevin Seconds

Warning- the first 4 minutes of this video is “not as good” audio. This DSLR does not allow for most adjustments while it is operating, and I happened to plug my mic into the jack after I turned the camera on… I fix it about 45 minutes in and it sounds a lot better.
It’s Kevin Seconds’ new band, accompanied with the rhythm section of Your Friends! It just amazes me that Kevin can continue to write so many songs. This entire set is newly written songs, just for this band. There’s even a hardcore one for the 7 seconds fans.

The Dickies- Observatory, Santa Ana Ca. 1/4/20 4K UHD Master Video Punk Greg Hetson Circle Jerks

While on vacation with the family in L.A. last week, I was lucky enough to make it over to the Observatory and catch the 2 bands that I really wanted to see- TSOL (40th anniversary show) and The Dickies.
I have been going to see the Dickies since 1988. In fact, they were on of the first bands I ever filmed in May of 88. This show was the best I have ever seen them, hands down. Great set and great performance.
They announced that their LAST album is coming out soon… does this mean that they are going to stop/retire? Man, that would be a bummer.. but if they keep sounding like this, it will be good to go out on top.
Features an appearance by Greg Hetson on guitar on 1 song, and in the backstage audience behind Stan.

TSOL- Observatory, Santa Ana Ca. 1/4/20 4k UHD Live Video 40 Year Anniversary Set Rare Songs t.s.o.l

After a lot of back and forth (trying to get permission to video TSOL, then buying a nirvana reunion ticket and seeing that camera rules changed, then cancelling Nirvana and going to TSOL anyway), I made a last minute decision to see TSOL.. and boy am I glad I did. What a set!
When I saw that they were doing a 40th anniversary set with “old songs never played before”, I was hoping that they would play something off of my favorite album “Beneath the Shadows”. I about lost it when they opened with Soft Focus. It was obvious that the band enjoyed playing these songs as well.
If this tour is coming to your town, you must go.
