Justin Peter Kinkel-Schuster: Dan’s Silverleaf, Denton Tx. 6/24/22 4K UHD (almost) complete set

Here’s a break from the recent metal onslaught. Last weekend, Anonymous, wife of Anonymous and I flew to Texas to see Centro-Matic play 3 shows. I stuck around for a 4th day to see Centro again and Slobberbone.
Anyway, Justin was in a band called Water Liars, and he released a couple albums with Centro’s Will Johnson under the name Marie/Lepanto.

28th Day- Light Rail Studios, San Francisco Ca. 6/18/22 4K UHD Single Camera Version Barbara Manning

I filmed this with 4 cameras, and it is in for edit now… but I screwed up the audio recording a bit so I hope someone.. anyone has a better audio track to use. Note to self- don’t ever change the attenuation on the church audio amp.
Man, what a fun party. Parker Gibbs turned 60 and had a bunch of great bands play. Many of them (like 28th day) reunited/flew out etc just to play the show. There was free GOOD food with your paid ticket. The studio was super nice- it sounded great in there. Let’s hope better audio surfaces. It’s not that bad, but the clipping bass drum drives me nuts.

Desslok- Light Rail Studios, San Francisco Ca 6/18/22 4K UHD Incomplete DPA4061 Mics Parkerzalooza

OK, it’s time for mediocre Monday. This band kicks ass and the recording is good as well. The only reason to post today was my mediocre job of only capturing one song. I was outside talking with people and missed the boat on these guys. Whoops.
Also mediocre is the fact that I screwed around with my mic/premp/input camera settings and completely screwed up the 28th day audio. I hope that Parker can rescue the audio. Happy birthday to Parker, btw. What a party! The final mediocre thing was me bailing after 28th day because I was tired and missing the rest of the show. You can blame kids and a 6am wake up call that day.

Field Day- Alex’s Bar, Long Beach Ca. 5/27/22 4K UHD Complete show Dag Nasty

I planned a long weekend in southern cal to take the kids to Six Flags last weekend, so I grabbed a ticket for this FEAR show.. and it was a really nice surprise to have Field Day added to the bill after the show sold out. Field Day is Peter Cortner (Vocals) and Doug Carrion(Bass) along with the loudest drummer I have ever heard and a guitarist who is not Brian Baker(but still alright) doing Dag Nasty’s greatest hits and some new stuff.
They were fantastic. They blew the headliner off the stage, in my opinion. Their 45min set was longer than Fear’s as well. This was a super difficult show to film, as Peter was down on the floor/pit area for pretty much the entire time so I had to bounce between finding him in the pit, focusing the camera, then back to the band, focusing the camera. I am still pretty happy with it. You can tell I was really into the show. I hope you cant hear me singing along.

Fear- Alex’s Bar, Long Beach Ca. 5/27/22 4K UHD Complete show Compete performance of The Record

I am going to be busy tomorrow so you get 2 videos today… and oh boy, do I have a story for you. In between Field Day and the Fear set, I was trying to figure out a good place to film without getting hammered by the pit. I decided to get right next to the bar- it is close to the stage and PA and usually isn’t too crazy there. So, while I am waiting for Fear to start, someone spills a beer all the way down the back of my pants. The perpetrator apologizes and leaves. There’s nothing I can do, so I stand there in wet pants and film the show. After the set, I see my friend Barbara Manning and I tell her that someone spilled beer down by back. I look back, and it was PUKE. Someone barfed on me and I did not realize it, then soaked in it for over an hour. I was so skeezed out that I took off my pants in the middle of the street in Long Beach and drove back to San Fernando (45min!) in my underwear, with the window down and heater on. The next day, I go to the car to fetch my hoodie and it was puked on as well.
Have a beer with Fear, indeed.
I don’t have much to say about the set, except I paid more than $1 per minute that they played. Also, they would be completely screwed if Spit Stix was not with them. He is one of the best drummers in the world and he carried the band through this set.

Freak Accident- Cafe Colonial, Sacramento Ca. 5/20/22 4K UHD Rode Videomic Pro Stereo Victims Family

I headed out to the cafe last weekend to see these guys. I have been following Ralph’s bands and projects for almost 35 years(!) now. This is a new incarnation of the band- new drummer, new songs. I like it a bit more- new songs are catchier. I think we also got a multitrack soundboard, but I still need to check to see if it turned out ok.

Captured! By Robots- Cafe Colonial, Sacramento Ca 5/20/22 4K UHD Rode Videomic Pro Stereo

I don’t really know what to say about this one. I didn’t enjoy it, but posting it because maybe someone else will. Just one thing- the audio track of this video represents the sound in the room. The camera settings were exactly the same as the Freak Accident’s opening set, and my levels were not peaking. I don’t think Matt (cafe sound) had much control over what was happening through the system.

MC5- Harlow’s, Sacramento Ca. 5/12/22 multicam w/Matrix Audio

Here’s a bonus post for you today. Last month, MC5 came to town and Jim McLain and I were there to film. I contributed 1 angle (the moving angle shot from straight on) and Jim did all the rest- shot the rest of the angles, took care of audio and editing. Thanks Jim!

Equipment used: Canon HF G60 and I think Jim has Canon HF G20’s now.

The Chats- Goldfield Trading Post, Roseville Ca 4/17/22 4K UHD Lumix GH5S and DPA 4061 Mics Punk

This was my first time at Goldfield Roseville. I figured that it was not going to sound very good with the layout being “wide and narrow” along with the brick walls, but it sounded amazingly good in there.
I have been in my “old man punk” bubble for too long. I forgot how a good young punk band can make kids go apesh*t. What a show! I was blown away at the band’s, and the crowd’s energy. I tried to start filming the show from the same spot as I did for the Mean Jeans, but the crowd was just too crazy, even with my using a big support pole as a shield. I had to move back. You can tell how big of a difference it makes to those 4061 mics when you move away from the PA. Still good, but not as powerful.

Mean Jeans- Goldfield Trading Post, Roseville Ca 4/17/22 4K UHD Lumix GH5S and DPA 4061 Mics Punk

This is the reason why I headed to Goldfield on Easter- to see one of my favorite bands. It was so nice to see them play for a (relatively) big audience who appreciated their music. This is the best reaction I have seen to an opening band in years. Hard to tell if most of the crowd knew the band, or were just reacting to the greatness as they heard it for the first time.
This is just one angle of 4- we still need to get this one enhanced and edited together- consider this raw footage. As usual, a couple of things went wrong. First of all, I forgot 1 tiny adapter that would allow me to plug into the mixing board. I brought 50 other tiny things to make everything work, but that one thing… nope. Also, the rowdy crowd grabbed my gopro that I had focused on Jeans Wilder(drummer) and ended up setting it on stage, turned the wrong way. So much for the drum cam.
Still a great show. Best I have ever seen them. Glad they are finally getting the props they deserve here in sac.
