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.

Bastards of Young- Cafe Colonial, Sacramento Ca 1/25/20 4K UHD Live Lumix GH5S w/Rode Mic

Man, I had so much fun last night. Thanks to Sean for bringing Field Day to town and for creating the best 4 band bill that I can remember.
I need to do some work on Kevin Seconds’ and Jordan Wolfe’s new band who opened the show, so I will post that set later.
Next on the bill were Bastards of Young. They delivered a killer set, as usual, and I think they might have picked up some new fans. I know my friend “Anonymous” was rocking along during their set.

Judge- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca. 12/8/19 4 Camera multicam w/Matrix Audio NYHC Punk Lumix GH5S

Ah, this one turned out WAY better than the Judge Gilman multicam from a few years ago. Thanks to the Gilman volunteers for fixing the lighting in there! The video would have been even better, but something funny happened. I started up my gopros and was told that the band wasn’t going to start for about 30min, so I shut them down again… and then they started their set early! I was scrambling, trying to get all of the gopros started and I could not start up the drum one.. and I was starting to get in Walter’s way, so I had to get the F off the stage. Haha! So it starts a little weak, with 1 obstructed angle to start. It kicks in and is good about a minute or 2 in, until I start filming from my normal sport in back.

I was filming this show when news of Murray Bowles’ passing came through. R.I.P. Murray.

Welcome to the Sacramento Music Archive! Read me first

We built this website to bring all Sacramento-related music content into one easy to use place.

Sacramento-related means:

– Content from Sacramento artists performing anywhere in the world
– Any content of artists performing in Sacramento (or surrounding area)
– Any content documented by a Sacramento resident, anywhere (photos, audio, video, flyers)
– Any significant content that was archived by a Sacramento resident.

Here are some tips regarding the site:

– Viewing the website on a desktop/laptop provides a WAY better experience for you- highly recommended. I mean, you could use a phone or tablet, but see below for some stuff you might miss:

– The archive has 4 ways to search for content. I will outline each as they appear from top to bottom on the RH navigation pane of the website

1. Search the archive: The search capability allows you to search by keyword throughout the titles and descriptions of the archive. This is my #1 way to find stuff myself. This searches title and description.

2. Filter by band name, venue and more! This is a cool word cloud feature that (in theory) sizes all content on the website, and correlates them into text size. We have so much stuff that not all bands are represented, but it is a nice way to browse.

3. Browse by Month: You can browse content by the month/year that the performance took place. It is a fun way to go way back and see all of the cattle club shows in chronological order, for example.

4. Browse by category: You can filter by Audio recordings only, video only, flyers, etc.

Or, you can just scroll down below this post to see everything in reverse chronological order.

Due to the unique chronological nature of the site, it is easy to miss posts since they do not post to the top (I post things from the 80s all the time). If you’d like to be informed of any new posts, please sign up for the facebook group here. It is for new posts to the archive only, so you won’t be spammed:


I (Shayne) also posted my list of tapes here:
if you want something posted, let me know. I will add it to my list of stuff to do.

If you have Sacramento-related content that you would like to add to the archive, please contact me! We can give you an editor login if you’d like to keep your content on your youtube site, or you can loan me your tapes for transfer and post from the 3 cameras and a microphone YT channel.

Formats that we can transfer:
– DAT (Digital Audio tape) via Sony PCMR500 & multiple other decks/Audiophile 2496 capture card
– Audio cassettes via Nakamichi Dragon/Audiophile 2496 capture card
– Reel to Reel (7″ & 10″ reels, 3.75 & 7.5ips) via Teac X-10R/Audiophile 2496 capture card
– Minidisc via Yamaha MDX-793 (optical transfers into TDK CD Recorder)

– VHS Tapes via JVC HRS9800U/9900U/9911U (VCR w/TBC) & Canopus ADVC300
– PAL VHS via Philips VR1000 (PAL VCR with TBC)/Canopus
– Rest of world VHS formats (Secam/etc) via Samsung SV-5000W/Canopus
– 8mm videotapes via Sony DCR-TRV340
– MiniDV via multiple cameras
– VHSC Videotapes via VHSC Adapter into JVC HRS9800/Canopus
– Beta via multiple decks/Canopus
– Umatic via Sony VO9800/Canopus

Which brings me to my last point. Do you want to help preserve history? Let me know. I need help posting stuff! Pay is zero, but you’ll feel good about contributing to a good cause.



Sad Girlz Club- The Colony, Sacramento Ca. 2/22/19 CD Release Show Canon HFG40 Rode Videomic Pro St

Sad Girlz Club released their first CD called Hard Feelings last month! They threw a party at The Colony a couple of weeks ago and it was PACKED. Check their bandcamp page to buy the album digitally, or the great bomb pop records website to pick up the actual disc (they have many more great discs as well)

SGC is: Shelby Murray, Travis Latrine, Lys Mayo, Erik La Febre

Recorded by: Shayne Stacy
Equipment used: Canon HFG40 & Rode Videomic Stereo


Warsenal- Blue Lamp, Sacramento Ca. 5/8/18


So I have been slammed with a ton of concerts, work, and life in general. Here comes a ton of stuff all at once. Enjoy!
Warsenal opened the Solstice show. Unfortunately, Morbid Angel gave away free tickets to the Ace of Spades show on the same night so no one was there. They were pretty decent for a thrash metal band.

Backtrack- VFW Hall, Fair Oaks Ca. 2/3/18 Multicam Live NYHC

Man, the lighting at the VFW hall is TOUGH. There is no lighting on anyone who steps to the front of the stage. So, here you have 4 musicians and a silhouette on vocals. Recorded with Canon HFG40/Rode Video Pro Stereo Mic, 1 HFG10 side stage, and 1 gopro behind the drummer.

Red Pills- The Stag, Woodland Ca. 11/11/17 Multicamera with Rode Videomic Pro Stereo Punk

I noticed that there are very few Red Pills videos out there. They played quite a few shows around Sacramento in the 2017/2018 time frame and even got some airplay on Rodney on the Rock. The quality isn’t great, but neither was the Stag’s lighting. Sounded surprisingly great in there though!
Oh, speaking of The Stag… what a bar! It had the craziest mix of punks, local kids who seemed to be metalheads and local farmer types looking for a fight. I almost got punched for urgently requesting a beer from the bartender in between sets. Good times.

Recorded by: Shayne Stacy
Equipment used: Canon HFG30 w/Rode videomic Pro Stereo, Canon HFG10(I think) on tripod, gopro Hero4 silver. The gopro angle is incomplete, we are not ignoring you Kenneth!
