Grandaddy- Henry Miller Library, Big Sur Ca. 8/8/12 Part 1 1080p HD Master

I think most fans of the band have heard about Kevin Garcia’s passing by now. Even though Grandaddy are from my area, I did not become a fan until I heard them on KEXP in 2002 or 2003 time frame. They became my favorite band in a hurry and have been so ever since. This was the first time I was able to see a proper Grandaddy show- it was their first official show back after a long layoff. Please give to Kevin’s family through their gofundme page. Sorry that it cuts at the end. I forgot to bring another battery. thanks

Grandaddy- The Beat, Sacramento Ca. 5/21/06 xfer from DAT Master

I was late to the party with Grandaddy but they became my favorite band in the early 00’s. By that time, they had stopped touring so I never got to see them. Then they release “Just Like the Fambly Cat” in 2006 and Jason played a few shows as a promotional tour. This was the last show billed as grandaddy until the reunion shows, 6 years later. I love the acoustic version of “this is where it always starts” on this. Cool cash register and phone sound effects as well.
Oh, I forgot to do anything with this recording before posting it, so there is 20-30 seconds of silence at the start, a big BOOM when I plug/unplug my mics, and the audience clapping is a bit loud. it’s raw- sorry.
