Mercyful Fate- Hard Rock Live, Wheatland Ca. 10/30/22 4k UHD Full Show King Diamond

This one hurts. This was such a great show, and I put a lot of effort into bringing my good audio gear in to get a decent (DPA 4061 mics) quality audio recording to match up to this. I get home to listen to the audio and it is distorted. The battery in the preamp was low. Damnit, I have been having terrible luck with audio lately. If anyone has a line on audio, let me know. Nothing through the network of usual suspects or on DIME.
Anyway, the audio on this is fairly clear but lacks punch/low end. I did my best filming, but there were a LOT of phones/hands/ etc in the air. So, if you are wondering why I am focusing on someone other than Hank Sherman when he is playing a lead, it’s because there was a hand, beer or phone in the way. Such is life.
Nice seeing so many old and new friends. I’ll try to list everyone I saw/hung out with.
PS: I have never seen so many happy middle aged dudes singing about satan, in my life.

Fear Gods. – Bowery Electric, New York City 11/4/22 4K UHD Single Cam Version Jack Adrenalin OD

I was organizing the 1TB worth of footage that I shot from last weekend and this one angle turned out good enough to post right away. This is Jack Steeples from AOD’s new band which includes members of Ruth Ruth, Headwound, Blisters and more. Give them a listen- they are very good. I shot 5 angles (this is one of them) and recorded 3 high quality audio sources (this is not one of them), so a full edit is coming someday.
Since I was orchestrating 7 different recording machines, it took me a couple minutes to adjust levels on this one. It gets better after about 3min.

Kreator- Hard Rock Live, Wheatland Ca. 10/30/22 4k UHD Full Show open for Mercyful Fate

Kreator opened up the Mercyful Fate show with a ripping set. I have not followed them closely since the 80s, but it was an impressive set. They closed the show with 2 I knew- Pleasure to Kill and Flag of Hate.
Again, the audio is only OK due to a low battery in my DPA audio preamp. D’oh, live and learn.

Deathryders- Cafe Colonial, Sacramento Ca. 10/21/22 4k UHD Tales of Terror set Charlie Stratford Mem

So much to say about this one. I hung out with so many old friends at the show that I only ended up video’ing the Deathryders set. There were a ton (6 or 7) of bands there and the cafe was packed. It was really nice to see everyone show up for the memorial. Pat Stratford was even there, glad to see him out for this.
Deathryders are Dustin Stratford (Charlie’s son), Jakobe Ares (playing Lyon Wong’s guitar), Brian Hanover, Charles Albright playing a set of mostly Tales of Terror songs. I did not catch the bass player’s name.

So why, you ask, did I decide to post this on Mediocre Monday? Well, 2 reasons. First, I had my laptop with me so I could record a multitrack off the soundboard but Matt was super busy so I decided to rely on the Rode mic instead for audio… and then something went wrong with the mic. I dropped it right before the set, but I have beat the hell out of that thing and it always worked fine. I think I finally killed it.
Anyway, sorry. Maybe they will do another show so I can make up for this. If anyone has decent audio for the full set, please let me know.

Fastcase- Harlow’s, Sacramento Ca. 10/3/22 4K video with Soundboard audio Hardcore

I went to the show on Monday night and did a 5 camera multicam of all the bands.. except fastcase. I thought there were 5 bands on the bill and I did not have enough battery to do 5 bands, and I had assumed Soul Glo were going to play at least an hour… nope. Only 4 bands and they played a total of 90 minutes! That’s an efficient show.
So what I am trying to say is that I could have done a multicam of fastcase but miscalculated in many ways. Sorry.

Medicine- Los Angeles Area, mid-1990’s xfer from Hi8 Master Tape Enhanced

I checked with Steve on this one and we can’t figure out what the venue is. The only venue showing in the mid-90s on setlist.fm is The Roxy, but I don’t recall The Roxy having a balcony like that. Maybe the Whiskey?

Roger Waters- Golden 1 Center, Sacramento Ca 9/20/22 4K UHD Multicam w/DPA 4061 Audio

OK everyone. Here is a fun one. Waters posts from this tour have been getting takedown notices and copyright strikes issued. So, in comes my friend “frenchonionsoupandkittylitter” to secretly host this one!
I really wanted to go to this show, but I wasn’t going to pay arena prices for tickets. Luckily, prices dropped on day of show and I snagged a nice ticket (lower level, row J?) for 50 bucks. Then I discovered that a taping friend (Tyler Jones) also filmed the set from the other side of the arena. They were a huge pain in the ass to synch and edit (thanks and sorry Tromster), but we made it work! Enjoy.

Negative Approach- Mohawk, Austin Tx. 9/6/22 4K UHD Multicam with Matrix Audio John Brannon

Man, that is awful news about DH Peligro. I did not know him, but I was lucky enough to have a camera/video pass to a fest they played. He & East Bay Ray were the highlights of that set, for sure. The video is on Sacramento Music Archive if you want to see it, not gonna push it on anyone.
Anyway, here is another one of the multicamera shots I did at the Mohawk- the tour played 2 nights here and this was the 2nd night, and the last night of the NA/7 Seconds/CJ tour. Man, I love this venue and the people who work there. Just a great place and a perfect place for my video setup.
NA were so awesome on this tour- I don’t see how Brannon can do that type of vocal every night on tour. My voice was gone, just trying to talk to people during that run.
Huge thanks to everyone who helped with the edit.

Negative Approach- Mohawk, Austin Tx. 9/5/22 5camera 4k Multicam with Matrix audio

About a month ago, I followed the end of the Circle Jerks/7 Seconds/Negative Approach tour through all 5 dates in Texas. Man, that was a lot of driving. Texas is huge. It was totally worth it- everyone that worked for the bands and venues were cool. It was a blast.
Anyway, here is the first multicam edit from that run of shows. The Mohawk in Austin was by far the best venue of the tour in my opinion- everyone who works there was super nice. It was really great for video as well. Since Negative Approach started their set during daylight hours, the quality is even better than usual. The audio turned out great with the help of Jim McLain’s mix of 3 different sources. Tromster clearly put a lot of effort into the edits- thanks my friend. Thanks to the bands and venues for allowing me to do this. Now, if someone can share this with John Brannon, that would be cool. I don’t know how to contact him.

7 Seconds- Mohawk, Austin Tx. 9/5/22 5camera 4k Multicam with Matrix audio Kevin Hardcore

Here is 7 Seconds’ set from the first night at Mohawk. This is my favorite set of the tour- they did “Trust”, which was a rarity. Also, some things never change- the band had to stop in the middle of “here we go again” because people were fighting. It’s like these dudes don’t even listen to the lyrics.
These mohawk shows are the best shows we have ever filmed and edited- so proud of these, and thankful to Jim McLain and Tromster for the help. I love that angle behind Sammy where you can see the sold out crowd watching and singing along. So great.
