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.

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.

Peelander Z- Hole in the Wall, Austin Tx 3/14/18 Multicam

I took a quick trip to Austin in March to see Grand Champeen at sxsw. I was only there overnight, but I had some time to kill before my flight the next day so I headed to Hole in the Wall and saw Peelander-Z. I had seen them at Riot Fest and knew that they would be entertaining, and I am glad I did. I love hole in the wall, what a great venue. You need to watch this video at about the 23 minute mark to see how (not) excited that teenage kid is, to be dancing with peelander-z. Classic!

Equipment used: Canon HFG40 & Rode Video Pro Stereo Mic, Canon HFG30 on Tripod, and 2 Gopro Hero 4 silvers. The last ~10min of the set is just 2 camera, after the gopros get knocked down for the crowd/bowling song.

Mike and the Stares- Hole in the Wall, Austin Tx. 3/13/18 Mike Nicolai Canon HFG40 Rode VPS Mic

So this show was the reason why I did the crazy trip to Austin. Mike Nicolai/Lil Capn Travis/Prescott Curlywolf and Grand Champeen. What a lineup! Mike opened the show and I really enjoyed it. Features Michael Crow from Grand Champeen on guitar.
PS: The other bands are going to take a bit to post because I am waiting on an audio source, and we need to edit 3-4 cameras together. Also, this video looks a bit dark because I screwed up and had my camera on “cinema” setting, rather than manual. D’oh! The rest of the show is much brighter.

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.

Lil Capn Travis- Hole in the Wall, Austin Tx. 3/13/18 Multicam Live Rode Audio

Last year’s Grand Champeen show was a dream bill for me- Mike Nicolai opened and one of my favorite bands of the 2000’s played second on the bill. L’il Cap’n Travis is more on the country side of the alt.country spectrum, and they write some amazing pop songs with pedal steel frequently laid over the top. I never thought I would be able to see this band, so I was probably a little too excited to see the band. I got a little teary eyed when they played my favorite song “My Ship is Coming In”. Such a great night.
Thanks need to go out to Philip Garcia for letting me crash at his place at the last minute, and to Liam Dennis & Charlie Passarell for the edit.

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

Here is Prescott Curlywolf’s set, opening for Grand Champeen last year during sxsw. They brought the energy- I really wish I knew more of their material going in… it really helps to film when you know what’s going to happen. It sounds great, even though they were louder than hell. You can see that the G10 angle on the stage is vibrating pretty heavily due to volume.

Edit: Tromster. Extra special thanks to Tromster as we discovered an issue with this one and he had to completely re-do it!
