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!

The Rosebuds- Harlow’s, Sacramento Ca. 12/22/18 Multicamera Jerry Perry Benefit Taperjim + 3Cameras

Last December, many of us got together to help our friend Jerry Perry at a benefit concert. 6 bands from Jerry’s long booking history stepped up to play sets for the sold out show.
The Rosebuds opened the show, and I was so excited to see them! I was friends with them back in the late 80s/early 90s and I liked the band, but I really didn’t fully appreciate them until later on. They got together for the first time since the early 90s, wrote song in tribute to Jerry, and played a great set for the early crowd.
Thanks to Marc Malakie for making this happen & promoting the show, Brian McKenna for providing venue + promotion, plus Eric, Dennis and many more for their hard work to make it happen.
