Metz- Sub Pop SPF30, Alki Beach, Seattle Wa. 8/11/18 Live Canon HFG40 Master Rode VPS Mic

I had good intentions of getting down to the fest right when it started.. but then I lost my monopod and had to uber over to best buy, and then I got to take a 2 hour bus ride with 3 connections to make it to the fest. Ugh. I was happy to make it in time to catch Metz. They brought the energy.

Built to Spill- South Lake Union Block Party, Seattle Wa. 8/10/18 Live Canon HFG40

What a strange show. BTS played this huge stage with rave-like strobes going off everywhere, to a huge crowd. They had tech/power issues throughout and you could tell that it was distracting for them. I felt bad for them. The video is really great when everything works for them.

Soft Science- Lo-fi Gallery, Seattle Wa. 8/10/18 Canon HFG40 Rode Video Pro Stereo Mic Master Live

After Built to Spill, I headed over to the lo fi gallery to catch Sacramento’s own Soft Science. My Google Maps initially told me is was .3 mile, so off I walked. It was actually over a mile(with 50lb of camera on my back), so I missed most of the set. D’oh. Nice seeing you Katie Haley, thanks for inviting me to the show!

Arms Aloft- Cafe Colonial, Sacramento 7/29/18

Arms Aloft was the band I was looking forward to seeing the most on Sunday. Check out their bandcamp- good songs with Micah Schnabel style vocals. They were the loudest band I have ever heard at the Cafe- the dummer’s snare was SO LOUD that the rest of the band had to compete for volume. My poor hearos earplugs did not help much. Glad it sounds OK here.

Las Pulgas- Cafe Colonial, Sacramento Ca. 7/29/18 Live Punk Concert

I was so lucky to see such a KILLER show at Cafe Colonial on Sunday night. More people need to come out and see what is happening at the Cafe. Great food, great bands in an intimate venue.
First up was Las Pulgas. I had heard a buzz about the band but wow. Intense, angry surfy punk with political & relevant lyrics. They don’t only sing about issues, they are organizing & doing something about them too. Be sure to check them out when they play next. They recently recorded with Patrick Hills so we should be hearing some studio output soon.

PS: Sorry about the audio quality early on. I had not filmed anything in a month and I forgot how the audio recording levels looked on my camera’s screen, so I panicked for no reason. D’oh.
