Dearly Divided- Cafe Colonial, Sacramento Ca. 8/24/18 Canon HFG40 Rode Video Pro Stereo Mic

Dearly Divided came over from Oakland to play the Cafe. They are a great band (check out their bandcamp page) but it was a bit too loud for the tiny Cafe. Yet another show that made my ears ring even though I had earplugs in. Their drummer – aaron- is incredibly talented. The video is worth a watch just to see him playing fast properly.

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.

Sarchasm- Cafe Colonial, Sacramento Ca. 6/24/18 Live Canon HFG40 Rode Video Pro Stereo Mic

Here is almost all of Sarchasm’s set from The Cafe last week. I think I only missed the first song. They are such a good band- catchy pop punk songs- and they continue to get tighter and bring better songs each time they come to town. They have a new 7″ out on Asian Man.
