Grand Champeen- Hole in the Wall, Austin Tx. 6/21/19 Single Cam version Canon HFG40 Rode Videomic

Here is another “one angle from a future multicam” series. We are waiting for multitrack audio for this show. It should edit together nicely- we have 6 camera angles for this one.
My and my friend Jason Ellis flew to Texas to see this show, eat a bunch of BBQ, and see Slobberbone/Brent Best in Dallas. No one told me how far away Dallas is from Austin.

Mike Nicolai and the Stares- Hole in the Wall, Austin Tx. 6/21/19 Canon HFG40 Grand Champeen Live

Mike Nicolai opened the Champeen show in Austin last year. If you haven’t heard his music, you need to check it out. Excellent power pop. Just listen. You’ll like it. 🙂 Features Michael Crow from Grand Champeen on lead guitar.
I only did 2 angles for this show, and unfortunately only this one came out as the other one has some vibration issues.

Grand Champeen- Hole in the Wall, Austin Tx. 6/21/19 Multicam with Matrix Multitrack Audio Live

This is probably going to be long. Anonymous and I flew to Austin for a weekend of shows & BBQ a couple years back. It was a total blast and I can’t wait to get back to trips like these.
This one has taken a while because we we waiting on multitrack audio from the house soundman that night. Michael Crow went above and beyond, following up with him for over A YEAR to get the hard drive. He found out that the first part of the show was lost, but he was able to take Anonymous’ schoeps recording and matrix it with the raw board mix… so you will get a good sounding matrix for the 1st 12min, and then the multitrack (also mixed by Crow) kicks in and sounds amazing! Thanks Crow and Anonymous!!
This is one of those rare videos where the performance was excellent, it sounds great, and the angles work. Totally worth the wait.
Special thanks to Tromster for the mix- he mixed this TWICE while caring for his wife and his 1 month old newborn. Thanks friend, and congratulations again.
This one goes out to my postcard family- I hope you can enjoy this, especially with the bad/uncertain news we have been dealing with lately.

Grand Champeen- Hole in the Wall, Austin Tx. 3/13/18 Multicam with Matrix Audio

I am so excited about this video.
Grand Champeen are one of my favorite bands of all time. They were from Texas but some members have moved around in recent years. They put out 4 albums – all were great but my favorite is The One Who Brought You. Check it out if you haven’t heard it before.

The band quit touring about 10 years ago, so I flew to Austin to see them. Man what a whirlwind that trip was. It was nice meeting all of the Postcard crew and HUGE thanks to Philip Garcia for putting me up for a night at the last minute, during SXSW.
This show is great- Ned, their drummer, had the flu and had to stop for a bit after “Rottweiler Hair”. Way to rally and make it through the show!
Sorry for the imperfect nature of the video- the camera close to Alex (Bass) has some vibration issues- they were LOUD. It sounds great and it is pretty obvious that the band is having a great time.

Grand Champeen- Thee Parkside, San Francisco, CA 1/25/04 xfer from DV master enhanced Schoeps Audio

Here is one that I have been trying to improve for a long time. It used to be super dark- to the point that you could only see Michael Crow and none of the other band members. I was able to brighten and adjust contrast, then denoise. (ignore the thumbnail, it looks better on the video). We then took KN’s schoeps audio and synched it up with the enhanced video. There are not many complete GC sets from this early- this is a tour opening for Richmond Fontaine for “The One That Brought You” release. Sounds great.

Grand Champeen- Thee Parkside, San Francisco Ca. 1/25/04 transfer from DV Master!

This is the last time I saw Champeen. I was in China when they came back around in 2007. Man, I miss this band. This video was done on my old JVC DV camcorder and it is very dark. If these guys are playing close to you, you need to check them out. I tried to get them to play my sabbatical party, but it just did not work out.
