99 TALES- Harlow’s, Sacramento Ca. 12/22/18 Multicam w/Matrix Audio Jerry Perry Benefit Taperjim + 3

Man, it took youtube editor 4 DAYS to shave off 3 minutes at the start of this! First and last time I use that.
99 Tales were one of the bands I was most anticipating- they were one of the best alt-country/americana bands in the city back in the 90s, and I kinda missed out. They sounded great- nice matrix work by Jim McLain!

LGS- Harlow’s, Sacramento Ca. 12/22/18 Jerry Perry Benefit Multicam with Matrix Little Guilt Shrine

Next up on the main stage was LGS. I have always known them as Little Guilt Shrine, but LGS came out as a different band- Lima Gulf Sierra! They were funny and very entertaining. Fans came in from far away to see them- I never knew they had such a loyal following!

The Rosebuds- Harlow’s, Sacramento Ca. 12/22/18 Multicamera Jerry Perry Benefit Taperjim + 3Cameras

Last December, many of us got together to help our friend Jerry Perry at a benefit concert. 6 bands from Jerry’s long booking history stepped up to play sets for the sold out show.
The Rosebuds opened the show, and I was so excited to see them! I was friends with them back in the late 80s/early 90s and I liked the band, but I really didn’t fully appreciate them until later on. They got together for the first time since the early 90s, wrote song in tribute to Jerry, and played a great set for the early crowd.
Thanks to Marc Malakie for making this happen & promoting the show, Brian McKenna for providing venue + promotion, plus Eric, Dennis and many more for their hard work to make it happen.

Nothing But a Nightmare- Harlow’s, Sacramento Ca. 12/22/18 Multicamera Jerry Perry Benefit Taperjim

Man, it was hard to tell if the first few minutes were just an extended intro- I considered trimming it off but kept it as is. The rocking starts at 3:30.

KAI KLN- Harlow’s, Sacramento Ca. 12/22/18 Jerry Perry Benefit Multicam Live w/Matrix Audio Taperjim

Damn, this video is good. HUGE thanks to Jim for putting so much into this- it sounds fantastic and the edit is excellent! Funny story- I had to run upstairs to get my camera & recorder from Momo so I missed the start of the set. I just tossed a gopro next to Neil Franklin and he ended up whacking it during the first song! He readjusted it and it happened to be a perfect drum angle. Sometimes it is nice to be lucky.

The place was packed for Kai Kln’s set- it was the most full I had ever seen Harlow’s. ~$10k raised for Jerry & family- well done everyone!

THE TROUBLE MAKERS- Harlow’s, Sacramento Ca. 12/22/18 Multicam Jerry Perry Benefit Taperjim + 3 Cam

Man, I love it when Jim gives the retro bands that retro look in the video. Enjoy The Trouble Makers’ set is beautiful black and white… or is that sepia tone. I can’t tell, I am colorblind.
This was a scorching set by the band. It seems that every band really stepped it up for the occasion, which made the night even more fun. Like Eric said, The Trouble Makers were the only band who has stayed active since the early 90s!

The Stone Foxes, 10/12/2018, Harlow’s, Video (Live Concert) (Web Flyer)

The Stone Foxes hail from San Francisco. They played Harlow’s in Sacramento on their Fall 2018 Tour with Tango Alpha Tango:

2018_TangoAlphaTango_StoneFoxes_TourFlyer_web

It’s worth your time to check out their website while you’re listening to this show. After the enjoyable read about how the founding Koehler brothers came together with the other members of the band, and some great blurbs from Denis Leary, Entertainment Weekly, Pandora, and (my favorite) NPR/WXPN’s World Cafe, there’s a note about an important and vital service called The Goodnight Moon Project, “an effort by The Stone Foxes to raise awareness for homelessness through music. As we collect food at shows and share the voices of homeless and hungry musicians, we hope the music inspires you to help. Simply, we believe that everyone has a face… a name… and a voice.” You can’t beat that kinda real love. Thank you, Stone Foxes! Your music is top-notch and transporting, and one wouldn’t imagine you could improve on that – but you do, with direct action in communities suffering with homelessness and hunger. Sweet, healing rock & roll, guys! Keep up the good work. We’re listening.

The Lineup:

Shannon Koehler // Vocals, Harmonica, Drums
Vince Dewald // Vocals, Bass, Guitar
Ben Andrews // Guitar, Violin, Vocals
Brian Bakalian // Drums, Bass, Guitar, Vocals
Elliott Peltzman // Keys, Vocals
Spence Koehler // Guitar, Vocals

“Driving this Weekend?  Listen to Twelve Spells by The Stone Foxes…Time will fucking fly.” – DENIS LEARY
