Anthrax- Heart Health Park, Sacramento 7/30/22 4K UHD Full Show Enhanced w DPA 4061 audio

Like Paul Piazza mentioned, this show was super difficult to shoot. The wind picked up and blew from behind the stage toward the crowd, which brought all of the fog machine smoke in front of the band. Combine that with the LED lighting and you have one hell of a mess. I did my best.
It was a fun show. I have to admit, I was a little disappointed in the same canned (EXACTLY the same every night) and short set (12 songs)… but what they did play was excellent. This is the best I have heard Joey sound live.

Anthrax- Aftershock Festival, Discovery Park, Sacramento 10/7/21 4k LIve Enhanced with DPA Audio

Here’s the only full set I was able to capture on Thursday- they really pack those sets in. After my battery conked at Exodus on the dreaded coors light stage, I decided to leave a few minutes early so I could get to the Kolas stage on time. I underestimated that walk again and had to scramble to get there right when they started.
Joey takes a fall at about the 16:50 mark of the video (during Madhouse) but doesn’t miss a bit of the song. The video thumbnail shows him pointing out the offending part of the stage to stagehands.
Sounds really good- the DPAs sound way better here than at the show at Ace of Spades a few years back. I think that Kolas stage was my favorite one.
Joey is a little pitchy. The pandemic layoff was not good for vocalists, for sure.

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.

Anthrax- Arco Arena, Sacramento Ca. 3/14/91 xfer from 1st gen VHS tape LIVE fromthenosebleeds

Man, today was intense at work, hence the late post. Here is one from Gary Shurtleff’s vast collection of videos– for some reason, I have a 1st gen VHS in his VHS collection, but he shot the master. Maybe it was a safety copy. Anyway, here they are opening for Iron Maiden. Really nice looking video and gary does a nice job on the arena vids with that zoom lens.

7 Seconds- Anthrax, Norwalk Ct. 11/30/86 xfer from low gen VHS Kevin Hardcore Punk

I probably have too many projects going at once- today’s post comes from a project where I go through the list of already-created DVDs for any Sacramento-related content. I am working alphabetically, and am on Numbers and A’s so far. Still have the rest of the alphabet to go. Tons more 7 Seconds to be posted.
I am also digitizing some of my and other stuff for friends. I am almost done with most of those (except Brian McKenna’s and Dal Basi’s big boxes o’demos). I need to get tapes back to you all, and get the rest of those posted.
Plus, I am working on my master tapes and getting those posted, sometimes with the help of King Bean for audio synchs.
So we are not running out of things to do over here. If you’d like to help add posts to the archive, there are hundreds of existing posts on youtube that could be mapped, so please let me know if you’d like to help.

Today’s post comes from the 1980s tape trading underground. There were certain venues where you knew people taped a lot- City Gardens, Houston Venues, Washington DC, and this one. There was one guy who filmed a bunch of the stuff at The Anthrax club.

I didn’t film or digitize this one, so no credits this time.
