The Avengers- Colonial Theatre, Sacramento Ca. 2/22/20 7 camera Multicam w/Rode Videomic Pro Stereo

I have seen the Avengers a LOT over the past 6 years, and this was the best show I have seen them play. SO great. Every single person I talked to after the show mentioned how good they were. I really appreciate Penelope giving me permission to do this.

The Lewd- Colonial Theatre, Sacramento Ca. 2/22/20 Live 4K UHD Canon HFG50

I probably should have done some type of multicamera setup for this set, but I did not have enough time to set it all up. Plus, the Avengers and TSOL sets are 500GB between the 2 of them… my RAID is fulllll
Anyway, The Lewd were good- they sounded pretty tight for a band that doesn’t play too often. Glad I finally got to see them.

Kicker- Colonial Theatre, Sacramento Ca. 2/22/20 Live Punk 4K UHD Operation Ivy Neurosis

Kicker was up next on Saturday night. I had heard of the band and checked them out online, but I had no idea that it was a punk “supergroup” with Dave Ed from Neurosis on bass and Dave Mello from Operation Ivy/Bobby Joe Ebola and many more. What a nice surprise. Band was great, and it sounds good after I fix my mic setting.

Sick Burn- Colonial Theatre, Sacramento Ca. 2/20/20 4K UHD Live Hardcore Punk Canon HFG50

First off, check out that thumbnail of Anthony. See that smile? That’s what a week in Hawaii will do for you.
Sick Burn was second up, at the unbelievably stacked Saturday show. They sounded great! Shout out to Travis the sound guy- it sounded pretty damned good all night.

Ross the Boss- Holy Diver, Sacramento Ca. 2/14/20 DPA4061 Audio Master FULL Manowar Hail to England

What a show last night. Manowar was one of my favorite bands when I was in high school, and I never had a chance to see them perform. With Ross the Boss(original guitarist and songwriter) coming to town AND playing my favorite Manowar album in its entirety, I couldn’t miss it. Great show- a few from the new Ross the Boss band, a few from other Manowar albums including my favorite song, Battle Hymns. So happy they came to Sac for the first time ever.

Victims Family- Warfield, San Francisco Ca. 2/8/20 4K UHD Live Victim’s

Here’s Victims Family’s opening set for the Mr. Bungle show. I got word that I got a ticket a few hours before the show, and after some back and forth with security, I made it into the venue about 10min before VF started playing. It was really strange to see VF play in such a large venue. I am seen them many (20?) times in small clubs.

Mr. Bungle- The Warfield, San Francisco Ca. 2/8/20 4k UHD Live w/Improved Excellent Audio

Thanks to audio taper Jamie Lutch, we now have really nice Mr. Bungle audio for the 2/8/20 show that I filmed. For the past month-plus, we have been hard at work getting this audio to synch with the video- it would not cooperate. Huge thanks to Tromster for working so long and hard to make this synch, and to Jamie for taping the show!

Mr. Bungle- Warfield, San Francisco Ca. 2/8/20 Live 4K UHD Live Video Scott Ian Mike Patton Lombardo

Here is a first look at the Mr. Bungle show from last Saturday night. I need to recover another 5-10 minutes of the show (including my favorite song of the set, The Crumbsuckers’ Sit There), plus I need to degrain it and hopefully find a better audio source to synch to it. Stay tuned. Regardlerss, this turned out pretty damned nice. I LOVE the ZS200.
So I went into this with no expectations. I figured they’d play the demo and a few covers as a goof and be done. I did NOT expect for my face to be completely melted off. What an amazing show- you MUST GO if you have the opportunity. Trey is a beast on lead guitar, Lombardo is (imho) the best metal drummer ever, and it was obvious they were all having a blast. Scott never stopped smiling!
I was able to cut down on the amount of out of focus shots by turning on continuous AF, but I realized it was eating batteries like crazy so I had to shut it off for the last 15-20 min.
MVP of the night includes the person who got me tickets (you know who you are- thanks!) and Daniel Hague, who not only gave up his spot to me so I could film, but he also stood in the merch line so I could get a shirt! Thank you so much.

The Knockoffs- Cafe Colonial, Sacramento Ca. 1/25/20 4K UHD Live Video with Improved Matrix Audio

Welp, I wrote a somewhat long intro to this video in reference to our current events.. but I just erased it. Please take care of yourselves, love and watch out for one another. This is all so tragic.

Anyway, here is a new version of a video I posted a few months ago. My good friend “Anonymous” took soundboard audio and matrixed it with his schoeps microphone recording. The result is far superior than my room mic. And it’s one of the best bands in town, The Knockoffs!

Gimme An F- Cafe Colonial, Sacramento Ca. 1/25/20 Multicam Live with Matrix Audio Kevin Seconds

Today’s post is a good one- here is Gimme an F’s debut show at Cafe Colonial! Actually, it might have been their only show before the pandemic hit. It never ceases to amaze me that Kevin can write an entire new set of songs for a new project. It seems like he does it about once a year- last year was Unsteady Heights, and now Gimme an F.
