PSA DONE

OK, For this last set of Aftershock, I tried to learn from mistakes made during the first night of Metallica. For that one, I got as close to the VIP rail as I could- I was only 1 row back and I had people that I could shoot over standing in front of me. I thought it was a good plan, until they threw their hands in the air for 2 hours. Oh well.
This time, I went up the hill quite a bit further from the rail, but closer to the stage. Since I was on a steeper incline, I was able to avoid obstructions and the DPA audio sounds better as I was closer to the PA. Live and learn.

This set includes the entire Black Album, performed from back to front. I got to see this at the Orion fest back in 2012, but it was still a rare treat. Plus, I got to see the best encore I have ever seen them perform.

Social Distortion- Aftershock Festival, Discovery Park, Sacramento Ca. 10/10/21 Live 4K DPA Audio

This was the surprise set of the fest for me. I used to be a huge Social D fan back in the early 2000’s. I loved the Sex Love and Rock and Roll album- it was one of my most listened-to albums of the past 20 years. When they came out with that Hard Times album, it bored the hell out of me. I went to a show in 2011 and it also bored the hell out of me. So I had kinda written them off as a nostalgia band for the pompadour and classic car crowd.
They do 2 songs from the Sex Love album- not even the hits but a couple of my favorites. They also do a new song called “The Way Things Were”, which sounds like it could be off the Sex Love album. Wow! Sorry I doubted them.
Looking forward to the new album now.

Mastodon- Aftershock Festival, Discovery Park, Sacramento 10/10/21 Partial song w/ DPA Audio 4K Live

So here is the 3 and a half minutes of Mastodon with DPA audio that I mentioned yesterday. Damnit, it would have been so much better if I had remembered to hit record on the A10. D’oh.

Mastodon- Aftershock Festival, Discovery Park, Sacramento 10/10/21 Metal 4k UDH Live

After Pennywise’s set, I ran over to the Kolas stage for Mastodon’s set. This was my first time seeing them and they were really good. One of the standouts of the fest for sure. This is where I discovered that I didn’t turn on the DPA mics for the past couple hours. I will make another post with the end of the set with the DPA audio. Sounds great.

Pennywise- Aftershock Festival, Discovery Park, Sacramento 10/10/21 Live 4k UHD Punk Fletcher

Alright, back to the Aftershock videos. I made sure to get to the fest in time to see Pennywise. I even got my DPA microphone setup all wired and ready‚Ķ and then I forgot to hit record. So, this and most of Mastodon’s set doesn’t have the better audio. Bummer. It doesn’t sound that bad, it just could have been way better.

The Offspring- Aftershock Festival, Discovery Park, Sacramento Ca 10/9/21 4K UHD Live w/DPA Audio

I wasn’t planning on recording the Offspring’s set, but I was scouting out the best place to do the Misfits set so I ended up getting about 15min while I was testing the shot. This was shot from the VIP Section, facing the Kolas stage. On the map, they make it look like there is this big, close viewing area for VIP’ers. In reality, there is a 12′ wide barrier that we could view from, and it was super far away. Glad I moved out of VIP, closer to the stage before the Misfits set.

Body Count- Aftershock Festival, Discovery Park, Sacramento Ca 10/9/21 Enhanced 4K Live Ice-T Slayer

I arrived at Aftershock super late on Saturday, as my daughter had a soccer game and I am a coach on the team. In fact, I thought I was going to miss them but I hauled ass from Placerville to the Sleep Train Arena parking, and I got lucky to get on a bus right away. I walked up right when they were starting. No DPA audio- it was such a rush that I did not have time to get my audio stuff all ready.
Of course I would figure out a good place to film at the dreaded coors light stage during the last band I filmed there. Oh well.
Features Dave Lombardo from Slayer on drums for a couple minutes at the start. He slid in there all secret- you didn’t know what you were seeing until it was over.

The Original Misfits- Aftershock Festival, Sacramento Ca 10/9/21 4K UHD Complete w DPA Audio Danzig

frenchonionshoupandkittylitter check in once again with a nice Misfits video. There seems to be some discord in Misfits land- Glenn drops the mic and walks off stage at the 4-5 minute mark, Jerry Only smashes his bass in apparent frustration, and Danzig’s intro of the band is hilariously callous. Oh well, glad FOSAKL got nice video.

Equipment used: Unknown, but it looks like one of those Lumix ZS70s with DPA mic audio synched via pluraleyes.

The Misfits- Aftershock Festival, Discovery Park, Sacramento Ca 10/9/21 Audio Only DPA4061 Mics

Sac music archive correspondent “frenchonionsoupandkittylitter” checks in with a post for today:
So the Misfits played Aftershock on Saturday- this was the second time that I got to see them by accident- I had bought tickets to the fest already when MCR cancelled and they were named as the Saturday headliner. So lucky.
The show was the typical Misfits set. I don’t know what happened, but Glenn threw the mic down early in the set and walked off the stage, then came back on immediately. Jerry Only smashed his bass in apparent frustration as well. I guess things aren’t all sunshine and rainbows in Misfits Land, even with all of that shared Festival and Hot Topic merch money!
The mix starts out a little bass heavy but balances out about 10-15min in.
The picture is during their setup for the set- one of the evil pumpkins took a little tumble.
Video forthcoming- it took too long to upload overnight so I had to kill the job. Probably video this weekend or so.
Thanks, FOSAKL!

Rancid- Aftershock Festival, Discovery Park, Sacramento Ca. 10/8/21 Live 4K Enhanced w/ DPA 4061 Mic audio

After getting crushed at Suicidal, I shot over to Rancid at the main stage. I thought I was going to miss the beginning of their set, but I got there pretty close to the start. You can really hear how lame the sound is in VIP on this recording- these are the same mics used for Exodus, Anthrax, Misfits etc and they all sound great. This one is messy.
Not trying to bag on the band, but when I was thinking back on the 4 days, I was listing all of the bands I saw off the top of my head and this one did not even register– nothing stood out. They were good, and this is the obvious “greatest hits fest set”, but I just didn’t remember it at all. I had seen them somewhat recently so maybe that was it.
