Ignite- Holy Diver, Sacramento Ca. 5/16/19 Canon HFG40 & Rode Videomic Pro Stereo

So this was supposed to be a 5 camera multicam, but I moved all day that day and was totally drained when I got to the club. I brought 5 cameras and found a way to screw everything up except for this one. On the bright side, it sounds pretty good. My friend Brian Kast gets a shout-out for wearing a 20 year old shirt to the show.

Direct Hit! – Holy Diver, Sacramento Ca. 2/24/19 Canon HFG40 Rode Videomic Pro Stereo

Direct Hit was the one band on the bill that I had not heard before. They were amazing- catchy songs with killer harmonies. I was not expecting this type of melody and energy- so great. I looked back at one point and saw their merch guy singing along at the top of his lungs. That’s when you know it’s good- the guy who sees the set every day is into it! They have a CD out on Fat Wreck Chords- I grabbed one.

Dog Party- Holy Diver, Sacramento Ca. 2/24/19 Canon HFG40 Rode Videomic Pro Stereo

There was an unbelievably stacked lineup at Holy Diver Sunday before last. Thanks to Sean Hills for promoting such a great show.
Dog Party were second on the bill. They don’t play very often anymore- Lucy lives in So Cal so this was a rare treat!

Redd Kross- Holy Diver, Sacramento Ca. 12/12/18 Multicam with Rode audio

Redd Kross played Sacramento last in 1997, so I wasn’t going to miss this. I really appreciate Steven McDonald giving me permission at the last minute. There were only 2 downsides to the night- the soundboard didn’t come out (silence) and the gopro on Steven’s side of the stage only shot his dark backside, so it wasn’t used.
