Son Volt- Great American Music Hall, San Francisco 5/3/17 Part 1 Canon HFG30 Rode VPS mic

Here’s the first 25min or so of the Son Volt set from Wednesday in SF. Brian McKenna & I had dinner seats and it was a great place to video from. Unfortunately, GAMH security put a stop to the filming fun early on. They let me film Belly last year, but Son Volt is anti-video, I guess. He said only “their guy” could video. Awww, I used to be their guy 25 years ago. I guess my Guy card expired. It all turned out for the best anyway. I was audio taping as well and it does not sound great in the balcony. Once they stopped the filming, I went downstairs to the floor and the recording sounds good! Not only that, I did not see any guys from the Schoeps Club at the show. I guess they were at okkervil river or willie nelson. It was a surprise that my recording may be the best of the night. Anyway, enjoy.

Belly- Great American Music Hall, San Francisco Ca. 8/26/16 Canon HFG30 and Rode Video Pro Mic

This was a show I was looking forward to. I bought tickets 6 months ago and it has been sold out for a while. Out of all the 90s alternative bands, I saw EVERYONE (Nirvana 3x, Dino Jr 3x, Buffalo tom 3x, Meat Puppets 10x, Teenage Fanclub, etc etc etc) except Belly, and they were one of my favorites. We got tot he club and it said “no flash photography” so I walked in with my G30 and set up. I was quickly accosted by security, and they told me I could film but I could not have the monopod on the floor. I handheld it for a bit (you’ll see) but then got the great idea to put the monopod base in my pocket. It worked like a charm and I filmed that way up until the encores, when security man came by and said no monopod AT ALL. So, the encores suck. Sorry. It turned out pretty nice- audio & focus gets better about 20min into the show when I take it off auto. PS: dot-com snobs with their glasses of wine don’t like punk videographers. FYI.

Centro-Matic: Great American Music Hall, San Francisco 2/19/03 xfer from DV Master!

Here’s a video of Centro-Matic in their prime. This set was pretty short because they were opening for Ben Kweller on this tour.. but it was the only video of Centro that turned out ok. I did another from 2002 in Sacramento, but it is super dark. Filmed with a nice JVC DV camera- don’t remember model #. I also have a DAT soundboard of the set, but this audio is just from the camera.

Jonathan Segel- Great American Music Hall, San Francisco 5/25/90 Part 1 Camper Van Beethoven

Jonathan opened for Robyn Hitchcock (if my memory and tape list serve me correctly) and it was a great show. Mostly solo stuff from his “storytelling” 2LP set, with a CVB song or two in there for good measure. Taped with the old Aiwa CV80 8mm camcorder and with Sony ECM909 mic velcro’d on the top. Please check out my youtube channel. I have 100’s of videos, most of them multicams and all of them masters (except 2).

Henry Rollins- Great American Music Hall, San Francisco 7/2/89 Enhanced with Sony Pro Walkman Audio

Here is another video that never really saw the light of day because it had issues. I had a problem with my mic that day, so the original audio on the video is super low and has some electrical interference. With the help of Derek Purtell (and my enhancements in Adobe Premiere/neat video), we finally were able to make this watchable/listenable!
