Circle Jerks- Mohawk, Austin Tx 9/6/22 Audio only DPA4061 Mics

The very last post of the September Texas Tour is finally here, so you can finally be relieved of me going on and on about it. I had a flight out pretty early the next morning, so I was up at 6 or 7am walking to my car. I check my phone, and my flight has been cancelled. I had to scramble and get an indirect flight that landed me in Sac about 6 hours later than expected. So, I guess that southwest was up to shenanigans even before Christmas.
I was able to get pretty close to the PA this time, so this one sounds a lot better than night 1 at the mohawk. Actually, this is probably the best quality CJ recording of the tour.
The venue is awesome, everyone in Austin should make this place their main hangout. Great people, cheap drinks, excellent bands.

Circle Jerks- Mohawk, Austin Tx. 9/5/22 Audio Only DPA4061 mics incomplete

After 7 Seconds’ GREAT set (best of the Texas tour in my opinion), I had to get to the stage and tear down all of my gopros and the stands, and in the process I managed to misplace my monopod. Thankfully, it turned up the next day- that monopod ain’t cheap! I saw Kevin and Bobby out on the sidewalk outside of the venue, so I hung out and talked to them for a while after the show. By the time I went back in, Circle Jerks were already about halfway through their set and it was super packed in there so I could not get close enough to the PA main to make it sound good. Here’s what I got. It’s not bad.

Circle Jerks- White Oak Music Hall, Houston Tx 9/3/22 Audio Only DPA4061 Mics

Oh man, work is getting like it was a couple years ago- 8.5 hours of meetings today- 5 hours down so far. It’s going to make these daily posts challenging… and of course, when I need to create posts as quickly as possible, Youtube decides to stop processing my audio posts. After having this one bonk out about 5 times, I finally had to do it the old/hard way. I guess I’ll be working with YT tech support soon.
Anyway, here is the audio from the Circle Jerks Houston show. Video was not allowed, so I went ahead and used the ol’ DPA mics to get this one. This was the nicest venue of the tour and a sharp contrast from the (awesome) warehouse style San Antonio club. Meh, give me $7 beers and roll up doors over this fancy place and $15 beers. Anyway, it sounds pretty good because of the pristine sound system. I guess there are some benefits from going to a nice venue…

Circle Jerks- Granada Theater, Dallas Tx. 9/1/22 4K UHD Multicam with SB Matrix audio

Aw, I failed on my promise for an all-Jess video weekend. There is 1 more Slobberbone video that I shot that will be posted as soon as we get it finished up. Sorry.
Here is the only Circle Jerks video that I was able to shoot during my week-long tour of texas with them, 7 Seconds and Negative Approach. Huge thanks to Dmitri Coats for permission. As usual, things went wrong. The audio is not great- this is the same equipment that gave us the killer Mohawk Austin audio soundtrack, but this was an large older theater and the sound was decent in the room, but not great. Big thanks to Jim McLain for making it sound as good as possible.
Also, I did not realize that the drums were going to be wheeled closer to the front of the stage. I set up my gopro early and got out of there, then the drums moved. So, no gopro camera.
Overall, it still turned out pretty decent. Another huge thanks to Jack Pier- if it wasn’t for his angle on the balcony, we would have been toast. My tripod encountered a ton of vibration.

Circle Jerks- Ace of Spades, Sacramento Ca. 2/26/22 4K UHD Complete Show

I was supposed to see SEVEN CJ/7 seconds shows in the March/April time frame, and I ended seeing none. I had plans to see the first 5 shows and had to cancel due to work and home stuff. I had also booked a family vacation back east which coincided with Philadelphia/NYC and WDC. We went on vacation but the shows were cancelled. Then, I booked a run of 4 texas dates to make up for it, and those were also postponed. Let’s hope my last attempt to make this happen comes to fruition in Texas in early September. I am not going to tell you now much money I blew out of my rear end to see a band. Embarrassing.
Anyway, here is the CJ set from Ace of Spades earlier in the tour, when 7 seconds wasn’t touring with them yet. Enjoy.

It took a while for this one to get prepped- the audio on my master tape was super thin, so I had to wait for better audio. The audio has some slight issues in one channel on and off, but it is still WAY better than the audio from my little point and shoot.

Circle Jerks- Sacramento Community Convention Center 3/29/86 Audio Xfer from Master Tape

I think I have mentioned that I have a ton of audio that I haven’t digitized yet. 4,000 cassettes, 2,000 DATs. That’s over 10,000 hours of stuff. I have some stuff digitized and on spindles- I just got around to organizing some of them and pulled a few to post today & tomorrow. Get ready for the onslaught of mediocre audio! Here is one of those old non-professional recordings from the mid 80s. It’s a legendary show, and they played forever!
