Freak Accident- Cafe Colonial, Sacramento Ca. 5/20/22 4K UHD Rode Videomic Pro Stereo Victims Family

I headed out to the cafe last weekend to see these guys. I have been following Ralph’s bands and projects for almost 35 years(!) now. This is a new incarnation of the band- new drummer, new songs. I like it a bit more- new songs are catchier. I think we also got a multitrack soundboard, but I still need to check to see if it turned out ok.

Captured! By Robots- Cafe Colonial, Sacramento Ca 5/20/22 4K UHD Rode Videomic Pro Stereo

I don’t really know what to say about this one. I didn’t enjoy it, but posting it because maybe someone else will. Just one thing- the audio track of this video represents the sound in the room. The camera settings were exactly the same as the Freak Accident’s opening set, and my levels were not peaking. I don’t think Matt (cafe sound) had much control over what was happening through the system.

Holehog- Cafe Colonial, Sacramento Ca. 4/5/22 4K UHD Master Canon HF G60

Holehog is a hardcore band from Sac that has been around for a couple of years now. Features Matthew Kadi on bass (Drummer for Monster Squad, Great Apes, and more). Somehow, I think I messed up and plugged my rode mic into the wrong hole- there is a headphone and a mic input jack side-by-side on the camera, and the lights went down before I was able to check which one was right. Audio is a bit distorted. Sorry- now I am really hoping that the multitrack sets turned out ok!

Cockring- Cafe Colonial, Sacramento 4/5/22 4K UHD Master Canon HF G60 Partial Queercore

Happy Easter to all of those who celebrate! Hmm, I thought that I caught just about all of Cockrin’g opening set for Murphy’s law, but this is only 11 minutes long. Maybe their set was super short. I still can’t figure out if this is the Rode mic or the stock mic. This sounds like Rode, but some of the other sets have some distorted audio. I think this might have been the band’s first show.

Murphys Law- Cafe Colonial, Sacramento Ca. 4/5/22 4K UHD Master Single Camera Version

Happy Sunday everyone. Here is another show where I filmed with 4 cameras, but I decided to put one angle up until we get it done- consider this raw footage for now. Matt the soundman also recorded a multitrack, so I need to ask if he’d be willing to share that for this video too. This was such a fun show- half stand up comedy, half music. Jimmy is a funny guy.

Murphys Law- Cafe Colonial, Sacramento Ca 4/5/22 4k UHD multicam with Multichannel Soundboard Audio

This show was WAY more fun than I expected. Jimmy G is still a comedian and entertainer at heart and he engages a crowd like no other punk/hardcore vocalist. Huge thanks to Matt at the cafe for the multitrack audio, because my camera audio was lacking. Thanks to Jimmy for permission, and thanks to Tromster for the edit.
Funny story about this show- Jimmy was in an RV behind the club and I could not get to him to ask permission. I asked the merch guy and he said he would ask, then he got busy‚Ķ so I asked someone setting up who ended being the bass player. Jimmy came in right before they started and I asked, and he gave the OK. I turn to Matt the soundman (he was up by the stage too) and asked- “how much time do I have to set up”. He looks at his watch.. 2 minutes. Holy shit, I have never set up faster in my life.

M.D.C.- Cafe Colonial, Sacramento Ca. 4/2/22 4K UHD Master w/ Rode Videomic Pro Stereo Millions Dead

There were so many good shows last weekend and I was planning on hitting at least 3 of them, and then my son got me sick. After resting up for a good part of Saturday, I was able to get to the show just in time to see MDC. It was nice catching up with Barry briefly. MDC’s new songs are really good!
There are a few cuts in the video. I did not have the energy to charge batteries before the show, so I was juggling 3 almost dead batteries while filming. I also tried a new setup (GH5S and the DPA mics) in preparation for the 7 seconds shows and it worked out great. Hope you like it.

Lightweight- Cafe Colonial, Sacramento 3/5/22 4K UHD Complete

Man, I spent all week posting videos from last weekend. Here is the final one- from Jake’s 30th birthday show at the cafe. THat’s him in the thumbnail- he lays drums for lightweight. He threw a FREE show for his birthday which was a lot of fun. The Cafe had just reopened after being closed for a couple months due to pipe issues within the complex. Between this show being full and a big grind show at the colony, I don’t think I had ever seen the bar so busy before. Anna was flying at superhuman speed all night!

Defender Grade- Cafe Colonial, Sacramento Ca. 3/5/22 4K UHD Rode Videomic Pro Stereo Pop Punk

When I got to the cafe last night for the show, the opening band, Defender Grade, was already playing. They sounded really good so I headed in and started filming asap. I still had my camera on manual focus and sports mode from filming my daughter’s soccer game, so it takes me a song or so to fix focus. Good band, I will definitely leave the house to see them again. Love those melodic bass lines!

Bird Control- Cafe Colonial, Sacramento Ca. 3/5/22 4K UHD Punk

NOTE- 1st 30 seconds is SILENT- I forgot to turn on my mic.
Bird Control were the second band up at Jake’s birthday show. Man, this was a fun night. I had never heard this bend before- interesting mix of a shoegaze sounding guitarist and a punk band. The lead vocalist is very active. Their songs sound bouncy to me. What the hell does that mean? Listen for yourself.
PS: The new soundproofing make the room sound so much better- thanks Chris!
