Polyorchids- Sophia’s Thai Kitchen, Davis Ca. 8/1/19 Live 4K UHD with Rode Videomic Pro Stereo Audio

Man, I had to jump a number of hurdles to make it to this show, including taking a night conference call from my car while driving there… but it was totally worth it. You could feel how much the band missed playing together, and how much they enjoy it. They packed the patio at Sophia’s and everyone was loving it. This is probably their only show this year, so it was a can’t-miss for me.

2 NEW SONGS.

And I screwed up a bit at the beginning of the show, forgetting to hit record… then I had to stop and adjust audio levels. Camera gets a little shaky at times, as I was having a little too much fun. I need to remember that this new camera’s stabilization is not as strong as the 1080p canon cameras I have.

Paper Dolls- 40th Street Block Party, Oakland Ca. 7/20/19 Live Color Corrected Panasonic GH5S Rode

So I was stuck in horrendous traffic from Sacramento to Oakland when I was trying to get to the block party. I thought I left in PLENTY of time to see Sarchasm play at noon, but I sat in traffic for over an hour by vacaville. I get to the front of the slowdown and discover that they closed a lane to trim bushes. On a goddamn saturday morning. WHAT THE HELL CALTRANS?

Anyway, I missed Sarchasm. I also missed Destroy Boys as they played at the same time as our 924 Gilman board meeting. So, only this and Coverups. These guys were pretty good- east bay pop punk.

Kepi Ghoulie- Harlow’s, Sacramento Ca. 5/11/19 4K HD Master Sony A7Sii Appetite for Adrenochrome Pt2

Here’s part 2. I need to find an MP4 file joiner so I can upload these in 4k as one file. The Sony is a notorious battery hog and I learned that you only get about 45min on a fully charged battery. Sorry for the gap- battery change.

I wasn’t planning on going to this show(I had family obligations), but Brian asked me to help with video projection, and Kepi announced that he was doing a special show with old songs. I did not know that Kepi was doing the ENTIRE Appetite for Adrenochrome album! Awesome! Not only that, but he had the all-star band of B-Face on bass and Jaz Brown on Drums. What a great show!! Thanks guys for the super unique show.
Since I decided to come last-minute and Jim McLain had the multicamera video duties all covered, I decided to bring my new 4k DSLR camera to test it out. It was so new to me that I pulled the lens out of the shipping box while driving. I had no idea how to hell to use the camera and you can tell during anton barbeau’s set. I finally got it to an acceptable level after fiddling around with the controls while Anton was playing.

Introduction with Cheech and Chong (spoof sketch), Sacramento Halloween Show 2019, Verge Center for the Arts, Sacramento, CA, 04/06/19, Video (Live Performance)

Recorded by: Jim McLain

Jim notes: The Sacramento Halloween Show does not happen any time close to Halloween. It does, however, have some of Sacramento’s best musicians dressing up and playing as their musical heroes. All for fun, this is a one-off performance and these are not regular cover bands. In fact, these aren’t regular bands at all, no more than 2 people from any one band can be in the same act. The theme this year was Colors. Live at Verge Center for the Arts.

There is a website with additional photos of the bands and more information:  https://sachalloween19.blogspot.com
