CHRCH- Blue Lamp, Sacramento Ca. 3/30/18 Canon HFG40 Rode VPS Mic

CHRCH has a new album coming out this spring and they debuted some songs at the Blue Lamp last weekend. They sounded great. Eva’s voice was a bit more prominent in the mix and I like it! My friend Jim Utz flew from St. Louis to see this show- it was a great time. I screwed up and forgot my monopod, so the video is a bit shaky and not level. The Canon G40 is a heavy camera- I did my best.

T.S.O.L.- Blue Lamp, Sacramento Ca. 3/24/18 Canon HFG40 Rove VPS Mic Single Cam Version

I filmed this show with 4 cameras and I would usually wait until that edit was finished before posting… but I know that Gabi is dying to see this show, so here is the single camera version.
A couple things about the video- since I was filming with 4 cameras, this angle is intended to be the close up/roving camera angle. That’s why it is fixed on Jack and Ron quite a bit of the time. It’s meant to be edited with the rest.
Second- The crowd was so crazy that I could not film from my usual spot, so the camera work is a bit sloppier than usual, but my camera was also elevated more so you can see Ron’s guitar most of the time. It’s a good thing I did not film from the cocktail table- I would have been taken out a couple of times. The sound booth(where I was) took a couple of healthy shots.

Pisscat- Blue Lamp, Sacramento Ca. 3/24/17 Canon HFG40 Rode VPS Mic Live

Here is Pisscat’s set, opening for TSOL on Saturday. So I have heard a lot of good things about this band from one of my favorite local bands, The Polyorchids. Since the Polyorchids guys have toured with these guys and have a bit of alt.country/americana sound, I figured Pisscat was a similar style… NOPE. Holy crap, screaming punk onslaught! The crowd ate it up!!
I only did 1 camera for Pisscat- Canon HFG40 and the Rode Video Pro Stereo Mic.

Sore Eyes- Blue Lamp, Sacramento Ca. 3/24/18 Canon HFG40 Rode VPS Mic Love

Here is the highly anticipated return of Brian Hanover and his new band, Sore Eyes. Brian’s prior band Union Hearts made the ALBUM OF THE YEAR last year in my opinion. The new band features members from Pocket Change(Marty Sertich), Trinidad Silva and many more. They were very good- they had a nice post punk sound- they discovered effects pedals!
PS: The lights were shut off for the set, so get ready for a dark video.

XTOM HANX- Blue Lamp, Sacramento Ca 2/13/18 Canon HFG40 Rode VPS Mic

So sacramento’s renaissance man/doom master Chris Lemos celebrated his birthday yesterday. Man, he is pretty popular because there were a lot of people there for a Wednesday night. Even though Chris was drinking beer the entire time I saw him, he never seemed drunk. Amazing! Here is most of the XTOM HANX set from last night. Wonderful version of “Carry on My Wayward Son” in there somewhere.

Banger- Blue Lamp, Sacramento 2/10/18 Live Identity Crysis

Here is Banger’s set from Blue Lamp on Saturday. They were one of the last bands to play, so the crowd had thinned a bit. I learned that the blue lamp has a lighting system that is turned on, or turned off- there is no in between. So, Banger asked for the front lights to be turned down… so they are a bit dark.
Band features Bill Heston from Identity Crysis- a local punk band who was on mystic records back in the 80s.
