Polyorchids- Sophia’s Thai Kitchen, Davis Ca. 8/1/19 Live 4K UHD with Rode Videomic Pro Stereo Audio

Man, I had to jump a number of hurdles to make it to this show, including taking a night conference call from my car while driving there… but it was totally worth it. You could feel how much the band missed playing together, and how much they enjoy it. They packed the patio at Sophia’s and everyone was loving it. This is probably their only show this year, so it was a can’t-miss for me.


And I screwed up a bit at the beginning of the show, forgetting to hit record… then I had to stop and adjust audio levels. Camera gets a little shaky at times, as I was having a little too much fun. I need to remember that this new camera’s stabilization is not as strong as the 1080p canon cameras I have.

Sad Girlz Club- North Pole House, Davis Ca. 11/17/18 Canon HFG40 Rode

After spending part of the night at the Colonial Complex closing concert, I headed over to Davis to see Sad Girlz Club & Anime Aliens play. I was shocked when I walked in- I have been to house shows, but this was crazy! There were people crowd surfing and climbing across the ceiling while doing so. I heard that it is not usually like this, so I guess I just got lucky! I only got plowed into once and no one was whacked by the monopod, so I call it a successful night.
No zooms as I had the camera up by the ceiling and I was avoiding people flying at me anyway.
Thanks to Lys for asking the crowd to watch out for me, and to the people trying to keep people away from me and the kid there. What a blast.

Anime Aliens- North Pole House, Davis Ca. 11/17/18 Canon HFG40 Rode

I hoped to catch Anime Aliens’ set at NPH, but I only caught the last 3 minutes. I would have been earlier but there was a guy across the street sitting in a chair in front of his house, looking pissed. So I parked WAY down the street on the other side and hiked in.
Also, I lose focus because my camera lens fogged up pretty much immediately. Still awesome. I like how the bass player is playing the dual role of bass/human body shield for the rest of the band.

Titus Andronicus- Oddfellows Hall, Davis Ca. 5/25/16 Part 1 Canon HFG30 & Rode Video Pro Mic

I have been a TA fan for a while, and had seen them once before- in 2012. That show was good- they played Orion Festival (Metallica’s fest) in NJ and I audiotaped. I saw Patrick Stickles (Vocal/Guitar/Main man from TA) so I approached him and gave him a copy of the recording from the fest. He was SO COOL and appreciative of the show- we chatted about the fest briefly- he remebered it very clearly which was kinda amazing given how many shows they play. Anyway, this Davis show was unbelievable- the intensity of the performance was unreal. The venue is upstairs and has a ballroom-style floor, which means that it bounces when people bounce. Well, it was bouncing HARD which is why the video bounces a bit. The crowd went wild- this has been the best show of 2016 for me. Glad I went, as I almost blew it off.

The Muffs- Oddfellows Hall, Davis Ca. 7/17/15 Multicam improved matrix audio Kim Shattuck’s Birthday

this was a super fun night. I had a bunch more cameras with me, but the stage was small and there was no place to put them that wouldn’t be in the way, so 2 cameras it is. It still bothers me that I never did a proper 4 or 5 camera shoot of the band. I had tickets to (what became) their last show ever and bailed out because plane tickets were too expensive‚Ķ sigh

Anyway, I don’t pay much attention to youtube comments other than for entertainment at times, but the audio from the first edit was the source of A LOT of negative comments. I figured that I’d synch up the matrix that my friend Anonymous did. It sounds a bit better. It was a tough night for lighting- the odd halogens made the shoot problematic. It’s still worth watching. And the run of songs from about 18min in, for the next 40min or so is INSANE. Just great song after great song.

The Muffs- Oddfellows Hall, Davis Ca. 7/17/15 Multicam with Soundboard Audio!

First of all, I’d like to thank Agelos for the edit on this one. There was room for only 2 cameras at the show, and the one on the stage was being obstructed constantly by a photographer. Agelos did a masterful job editing the 2 angles together- thanks! Great show, the soundboard sounds great, but the mix really comes together about 10 minutes into the show. Thanks to Laurence for the great mix. Ronnie, I learned the next night that you are not too thrilled about soundboard recordings, so let me know if you are ok with this. Filmed with an HFG30 on monopod, and HFG10 on tripod side stage.
