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.

FRACK! – The Colony, Sacramento Ca. 7/22/17 Part 1 Black Flag Punk

This really surprised me. I knew that FRACK! went over well at the Jello Biafra show in March, but I had no idea that they had such an intense, loyal following here in town. They went nuts the entire set. The slide guitar songs are so unique. How does that one guy run around the pit the entire night with someone on his back? Impressive. Oh, Black Flag keyword tag because they do a killer cover of “Rise Above” with slide.

Abolitionist- The Colony, Sacramento Ca. 7/22/17 Part 1 Portland Punk

When this show was announced, I was planning to go so I checked out Abolitionist’s bandcamp page. I noticed that these guys recorded in Stan Wright’s (Arctic Flowers) studio which caused my ears to perk up. And, wow. Just when you think that you’ve heard it all… these guys defy categorization. They played way louder than the Colony’s PA could handle. I thought it looked funny that the guys were fruitlessly screaming into mics, but listening to instrumental versions of these songs made me realize how strong they were. I bought every tape & LP they had. LISTEN. Great stuff. PS: Bonus points to the drummer’s old school, late 70’s iron maiden shirt. Dianno rules.

The Polyorchids- The Colony, Sacramento Ca. 7/22/17 Part 1 Canon HFG30 Rode VPS Mic

Man, I love this band. They have that genuine rural sound- it just sounds like woodland/winters, ca. to me. Kinda like Uncle Tupelo sounded like rural Illinois, these guys sound like rural sacramento valley. This was the best show I have ever seen of them and the crowd went nuts. It was like 1,000,000 degrees in the colony. Also, the colony’s PA is having some issues so vocals sound a bit blown out.

Dead Dads- Colonial Theater, Sacramento Ca. 5/27/17 Multicam

Here is Dead Dads’ last show, I think. They played that Colonial Fest that not enough people showed up to (support your scene folks).
I almost didn’t get this one edited, because I set the gopro up in a hurry and it is positioned in a way that Lys’ head is a cymbal. Ugh- the gopro was new, I was still learning.

Equipment used: 2 Canon HFG30s, 1 Canon HFG10, and Gopro hero 5 silver.
