The Empty Gate- The Maltese, Chico Ca. 4/19/19 Multicam with Rode audio Vomit Launch

It has been almost 30 years since I had seen Trish Rowland- the last time we were in the same room was 10/16/92 at the Cattle Club. Sam Habash and I trekked up to Chico to see her new band (The Empty Gate) play a show. She remembered me and we had a nice chat- she has always been so nice. Some things never change. 🙂

Sneeze Attack- The Maltese, Chico Ca. 4/19/19 Multicam with Rode audio

Me and my friend Sam went up to Chico to see The Empty Gate (Trish from vomit launch’s new band) and who do I run into? Sac’s own Sneeze Attack! How cool is that? This was their first show back after a long layoff. In fact, I think it was the first show in this incarnation of the band.

Slobberbone- LaSalle’s, Chico Ca. 1/22/03 xfer from master tape!

Happy Friday everyone. I am posting 2 videos today, and neither one is a local band or local venue. I have more coming next week from Cattle Club, Spankys (!) and more. This is one of my 3 favorite alt-country bands. Slobberbone skipped Sacramento and only played the bay area and Chico, so I hoofed it to Chico to see them. The video cuts in on a great cover of “Don’t Cry No Tears”, as I was having some trouble with the DAT machine at the soundboard (meaning, I FORGOT A TAPEW. DUH.). Audio is choppy for the first 45 seconds and then cleans up. I start zooming with the camera about 8min in. Filmed with the JVC DV camcorder and stock mic.

Flaming Lips- Burro Room, Chico Ca. 10/21/89 Audio Only Sony WMD6C Pro Walkman Live Master Xfer

Back in the 80s, it was really hard to get information about out-of-town shows. You could get some info from the SF Chronicle’s pink sheets, but a lot of it was word of mouth or getting a flyer(or The List) from a show. Chico was a total black hole (no offense intended)- the only way we found out about these shows was usually when we would see a band in Sac and they told us that they were playing Chico the next night.
So after laying waste to the UC Davis Coffeehouse, Anonymous followed them to Chico the record the Burro Room show. This one is as good quality as UCD.
