After listening to the audio from my camera and comparing it to the DPA mics, I decided that this will be the last one that I will post without a DPA synch. In fact, I will repost this set with the better audio next week.
So on Thursday at work, I double-checked the app to see what time I needed to get there for Death Angel and lo and behold, Destroy Boys were added as a last-second replacement for some metal band I didn’t care about. I left early and got there close to their set time- it takes a while to drive to sleep train arena, park and shuttle over to Discovery Park. After getting the audio setup all plugged in, I heard them start.
Man, I was shocked at the band’s growth. The last show that I had seen of theirs was 4 and a half years ago at the Blue Lamp. So much more stage presence and confidence, it was so cool. This was the most fun set of the weekend for me. I smiled the entire time.
One other thing- the auto setting was overexposing badly, so I flipped it over to manual about 3 minutes into the set. It gets better is what I am trying to say.
