Camper Van Beethoven Cracker- Pappy & Harriet’s, Pioneertown Ca. 2/3/00 xfer from 8mm master

So this was a BIG DEAL. Camper broke up in Sweden during the 1990 tour and it was said (at the time) that they would NEVER. PLAY. AGAIN. So when they let me know that this was happening, I was thrilled. I drove from home(sacramento) to Pioneertown to catch their first show back. Damn, that is a long drive in 1 day. The show was great, and I got to meet a lot of new fans which was cool. I remember some of the band being excited/nervous, and I was as well. This was my only visit to Pioneertown- I need to go back. Filmed with Sony TR81 camcorder. I also have DAT audio, but I remember it being super muddy/not good.
This has Camper & Cracker playing one long set together. Camper/cracker songs mixed throughout.

Cracker- Cattle Club, Sacramento Ca. 7/10/92 Part 1 from 8mm Master!

This was a great coincidence- Gary Shurtleff and I had a friend in the bay area named Karl(RIP) who wanted me to tape a show, so he loaned me his NICE Sony TR-81 camera. I spent the entire weekend videotaping my sister’s softball games and then headed to Cattle to see if Cracker would let me video. As usual, CVB and Cracker’s manager Jackson Haring was totally cool with taping so I got this early cracker show. Notice the beautiful sequined dress that bass player Davey Faragher is wearing. Stock mic so there is some distortion.Once I used that camera, I had to drop the $800 to buy one for myself. 🙂
