Centro-Matic: Dan’s Silverleaf, Denton Tx. 6/24/22 4K UHD Multicam with Matrix Audio Will Johnson

About a month ago, I went to Texas with my friend Anonymous and his wife. We had a blast and got to see Centro-Matic play a weekend’s worth of shows at Dan’s. Man, I love Denton- it is like an oasis in the middle of Texas.. even moreso than Austin (Blasphemy!).
But anyway, I brought 5 4k cameras and Anonymous brought his schoeps audio rig. Brent Best was doing sound for the shows and they sounded great. I don’t know if I will ever get used to asking one of my favorite musicians to plug me into the board.
In general, a lot of stuff can go wrong when doing multicam and this one is no exception. The gopros conked out early, so this goes from 5 camera to 2 camera as the show progresses. Great set- probably my favorite set out of the 4.

Static Diary (Scott Danbom from Centromatic)- Dan’s Silverleaf, Denton Tx. 6/23/19

There were no posts to the Sac Music Archive over the weekend because I was in Texas going to shows with only a cellphone (and 6 cameras). Friday and Saturday shows were multicams so those will get posted later.

Sunday at the Summer Hangout in Denton started out VERY mellow. I think Travis had a good idea to start things off quietly since Saturday was a party.

I got there early to see Scott Danbom. I loved Centro-Matic and wanted to see what he was up to now. He just released a solo record and played a few songs here.

Centro-Matic: Great American Music Hall, San Francisco 2/19/03 xfer from DV Master!

Here’s a video of Centro-Matic in their prime. This set was pretty short because they were opening for Ben Kweller on this tour.. but it was the only video of Centro that turned out ok. I did another from 2002 in Sacramento, but it is super dark. Filmed with a nice JVC DV camera- don’t remember model #. I also have a DAT soundboard of the set, but this audio is just from the camera.

Here is one that I have been wanting to synch up for quite a while, and decided now is a good time because Will Johnson is coming through town (er, Reno) this week! Also, Centro-Matic is scheduled to play their first show in 7 years in a month or so.
Thanks to Will for always being cool about taping.

Centro-Matic: Capitol Garage, Sacramento Ca. 4/16/02 xfer from master DV tape enhanced Will Johnson

Here is a video on audio day. There are 2 reasons I am posting video on a Tuesday. 1 is that I am super bummed to miss the Shoals Fest in Alabama here in a couple weeks. Centro-Matic is playing there for the first time in 7 years… but the COVID situation in the southeast makes travelling there a really bad decision. Second, even though this video is SUPER dark and colorless even after cranking the brightness & color as high as it would go in Adobe Premiere, it sounds pretty good for a video with stock mic. So, pop it on and listen.
This was the first and last time I filmed at Cap Garage- it was just too dark for my camera to handle. It’s a bummer because there were so many good shows there.
Shout out to Charles Twilling for bringing great americana/alt-country bands to Sacramento in the early 00s.
