Freature- Blue Lamp, Sacramento 9/19/18 Canon HFG40 Rode Video Pro Stereo Mic

I usually check bands out before I see them, but this was the first time that I heard Freature. Since 2 members of the O’Mulligans were in the band, I was expecting something a lot different. This is not pop punk- it’s rock but it is really good! I can’t compare them to anyone- very unique.

The Bar Fly Effect- Blue Lamp, Sacramento Ca 8/25/18 Canon HFG40

What a crazy night at the Blue Lamp on Saturday. I missed lightweight, but I was able to video The Barfly Effect- I saw them quite a while back and liked their CDs. They were heckled a bit by the crowd(more on them later), but they were good. I think they were just coming back from a long layoff.

Oh, and I was an idiot and mounted my microphone, turned it on, and then forgot to plug it in. So mediocre audio on this one for you.

Sloppy Seconds- Blue Lamp, Sacramento Ca. 8/25/18 Canon HFG40 Rode Video Pro Stereo Mic

Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes. That was really nice- I appreciate you taking time out of your day to send something my way.

I know that my videos are not playing audio on phones only. They play fine on laptop and desktop systems. I tried to figure out a workaround for a few days but no luck. It looks like I need to change the way I film my single camera videos- no more 59fps/28mb AVCHD I guess. Sorry about that. If you really want to see this or any other silent videos, hit up a real computer.

OK, so this show was something else. This had the biggest pit I had ever seen at Blue Lamp. I am usually safe to film right in front of the mixing board, but not this time. I had to stand up in the mixing board area, and it is a good thing I did. I would have been clobbered. My camera goes sideways a few minutes in, due to my audio recorder getting pulled out of the mixing board(also a first ever). I saw a guy get his head pile-driven into the wood soundboard booth- it shook the entire thing. Crazy show- I had no idea SS brings that kind of crowd. Glad I didn’t multi cam- there’s no way they would have survived.

The Moans- Blue Lamp, Sacramento Ca. 8/25/18 Canon HFG40 Rode Video Pro Stereo Mic

So the Tough Crowd (more on that later) seemed to like the Moans quite a bit. Some of the “pit dominators” started getting warmed up during their set. They were great as usual- Matt has such a great voice for their sound. I love their slower, melodic songs.

Anime Aliens- The Colony, Sacramento Ca. 8/24/18 Canon HFG40 Rode Video Pro Stereo Mic

Here’s another set of killer harmony guitar leads, terrible jokes and the most pavement sounding songs I have heard outside of pavement(that’s a compliment). It’s the Anime Aliens! I was at the Colonial Cafe for the Dearly Divided show, but the timing worked out and I was able to catch this show too.
