Man or Astroman? – El Dorado Saloon, Sacramento Ca. 10/26/97 Audio only xfer from DAT SBD Master

So Brian is bringing Man or Astroman? back to Sacramento next Wednesday. EVERYONE should go. They are super entertaining. I took my DAT recorder and recorded their show back in 1997 through the soundboard. If you like surf rock, space rock, comedy, vintage computer gear or people in silly suits you should totally go to this.

DI- El Dorado Saloon, Sacramento Ca. 9/2/87 xfer from master/1st gen Audio Tape D.I. Punk Live

This is an odd one in 2 ways. Even though D.I. opened for C.O.C., this is tacked onto the end of the tape AFTER COC… which means that “Anonymous” might have copied his master to the COC tape, making this a 1st gen. hmmm…
Also, D.I. is in the rarest of forms here. When they played El Dorado Saloon back in January of 1987, the crowd LOVED them and they played an amazing set. Here we are 8 months later and they get into shouting matches with the crowd. Odd. Casey is usually funny and affable as a frontman… must have been an off night.

Corrosion of Conformity- El Dorado Saloon, Sacramento 9/2/87 xfer from master audio tape

Here is the last local COC show of note, that I have. I think that Anonymous taped this one, but it is hard to tell. It might have been Mark Martin’s friend Ricky. This one had no low end at all, so I EQ’d it to boost bass as much as possible and dropping the highs/midrange.

Trouble- El Dorado Saloon, Sacramento Ca 8/2/87 Xfer from Master Audio Tape

I have a few concert-going regrets in my life and this is one of them. I LOVED the first Trouble album when it first came out, but I went into my black/death metal phase and did not appreciate how great they were at this show. I talked through a good part of the show. And they might have let me video as well, they were one of the few artists who seemed to be cool with taping in the late 80s. So dumb. Oh well. Enjoy.

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.
