Field Day- Alex’s Bar, Long Beach Ca. 5/27/22 4K UHD Complete show Dag Nasty

I planned a long weekend in southern cal to take the kids to Six Flags last weekend, so I grabbed a ticket for this FEAR show.. and it was a really nice surprise to have Field Day added to the bill after the show sold out. Field Day is Peter Cortner (Vocals) and Doug Carrion(Bass) along with the loudest drummer I have ever heard and a guitarist who is not Brian Baker(but still alright) doing Dag Nasty’s greatest hits and some new stuff.
They were fantastic. They blew the headliner off the stage, in my opinion. Their 45min set was longer than Fear’s as well. This was a super difficult show to film, as Peter was down on the floor/pit area for pretty much the entire time so I had to bounce between finding him in the pit, focusing the camera, then back to the band, focusing the camera. I am still pretty happy with it. You can tell I was really into the show. I hope you cant hear me singing along.

So many thanks are in order for this one. Thanks to Doug & the band for allowing me to video. Thanks to Sean Hills for bringing the band to town. Thanks to “Anonymous” for taping from the audience and doing the matrix/compression work. Thanks to Agelos(Tromster) for the edit… and finally thanks to the band again for doing some final touch-ups to the audio. Thanks everyone.
Also, my apologies to anyone who was there and had to endure my delirious over-caffeinated ramblings after being up for 36hrs due to a business trip.

Dag Nasty- Thee Parkside, San Francisco 12/8/17 LIVE Multicam Minor Threat

I could ramble on and on about this one. This was the best show I have seen this year. The video turned out great as well- I encourage you all to actually watch this one. I was excited to see them, but I was not expecting this level of great. The club was sold out, and it is so small that means that you can’t move. at all. Luckily, I have these pole mounts from Jim Mclain and the club has 3 poles, so I was able to mount 3 cameras. I then wedged into a tiny 12″ x 12″ spot by the bands equipment to film the angle closest to Brian. Since moving was impossible, I asked Colin Sears to put my gopro on stage. He tossed it up there for me(thanks), but the angle is not completely pointed at him. It still turned out OK. The crowd sang along to every song. It was so much fun.

Dag Nasty- Club Obsession (Club Me Cattle Club), Sacramento Ca 6/12/88 xfer from 8mm master Enhanced

I think this was the first time I ever set foot into the venue that would become the Cattle Club. Thanks to my old friend Greg Dean for bringing the band to Sacramento. This video was pretty much unwatchable before, due to it being too dark. The enhancements make it somewhat tolerable. I need to see if I have another audio source for this one, as the stock mic sounds like hell.

Equipment Used: Aiwa CV80 & Stock Mic
Enhancement: Adobe Premiere brighten/increase exposure, denoise with neat video.

Dag Nasty- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca. 6/10/88 xfer from 8mm master enhanced

Man, I can’t believe this was 30 years ago. Dag Nasty was my favorite band at the time and I was pretty excited that I got permission to film. This set is very heavy on Field Day material. I brightened and increased exposure, and it is way better than before. It still sounds like hell, since I did not have the nice mic yet.

Dag Nasty- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca. 9/20/87 xfer from 1st gen soundboard cassette rebalanced

I think it is OK to share this story now- 35 years is probably long enough to avoid any hassles. Apparently, Dag Nasty was aware of the volume of soundboard tapes coming out of Gilman in the early days so they told the venue there was to be NO TAPING their show that night. A few days after the show, Wayne Vanderkuil gets this 1st gen soundboard tape in the mail from a well-known audio engineer there. Someone must have not heard the directive- maybe they were in the restroom or something.
Anyway, I had a 2nd or 3rd gen copy of this for a long time. Since I was able to get a clean transfer off this tape, I was able to rebalance this one pretty effectively. The one issue is that the bass in the recording is so shallow sounding, Izotope won’t recognize it as bass! I was able to boost the guitar and drums at least. The bass still overwhelms the mix later in the set.

Recorded by: a well-known audio engineer at 924 Gilman
Transfer by: Shayne Stacy
Equipment used: Nakamichi Dragon and M-Audio Audiophile 2496 card
Rebalance in Izotope Rx8 (Drums +6, Guitar +10)
and I just realized that I forgot to normalize the audio after Izotope so levels are a little low. Turn it up!

Dag Nasty- El Dorado Saloon, Sacramento Ca. 7/19/87 Audio only xfer from master tape LIVE

This was probably one of the most memorable punk shows that Stewart Katz put on. It was PACKED and skinheads were beating the hell out of each other. Dag Nasty stops one song due to fighting, and Peter Cortner changes lyrics to another. They also took a stab at Stewart during the show.
I also met my best friend, “Anonymous”, at this show. 30+ years later and we are still good friends. He taped this show witn an Aiwa hanheld recorder- excellent results.

Equipment Used: Aiwa Handheld Recorder
Enhancement: Bass boost/midrange drop/normalize in Sony Sound Forge.
