Turn it Around: The Story of East Bay Punk Q&A Session, Crest Thtr, Sacramento 9/1/17

The night after my birthday party at the Blue Lamp, the East Bay Punk movie played at The Crest. I got there late- wow, was it packed!
Being the completest nerd that I am, I videotaped the Q&A session. Sorry for the audio quality- I forgot to plug my mic in, and then once I did, the audio is too low. Wait for the volume to drop and then turn it up, if you want.

Groovie Ghoulies- Crest Theatre, Sacramento Ca 1/27/00 xfer from Master DAT Audio Remix

Hey, Kepi announced a show at the Side Door on October 15- it should be a good time. That venue is really nice- it is Eric Bianchi’s home base so you know it’s gonna sound good.. and they are going to do the entire Appetite for Adrenochrome album with full band!
I figured I would post a Ghoulies thing today since I had them on my mind. Here is the time they opened up for the (fake) Misfits at the Crest! The mix was shockingly not great (Crest boards usually sound fantastic, so I brought up the guitar a lot. The drums still sound funny to me, but it’s as good as it is gonna get.

Henry Rollins- Crest Theater, Sacramento Ca. 1/24/97 audio only xfer DAT Sbd master tape Spoken Word

Here is the last time I ever taped Rollins with permission. Henry used to trade tapes back in the 1980s and he would usually be pretty cool with taping. I got the OK to video in 1988 and audio this time. I taped another Crest spoken work show in 2003 from the audience.
This show was a blast. I met Andy Field for the first time- he did sound at the show. I heard that he (or someone) has some old soundboard recordings from Sacramento’s early days of punk, but I can’t seem to get a hold of him. If anyone knows how to get in contact with him, lmk. It would be great to get those shows on the archive.

Warning: This show contains a ton of profanity and is SUPER dynamic. I tried to compress it as much as possible, but it is still very quiet in spots, and super loud in others. Just think- it was worse before!
