Jawbreaker- Ace of Spades, Sacramento 3/27/22 Pt. 1 4K UHD Lumix GH5S w/Schoeps Audio

Jawbreaker came to Sac last month and thanks to the generosity of TM Shawn, I was able to get a “photo” pass. I brought the DSLR (my best camera) and shot the show in 4K. Unfortunately, 2 things went wrong. First, I used a way too powerful lens so I could not pan back and get a full band shot. The show was packed, so breaking down and reattaching a different lens was kinda out of the question. Second, I got really fatigued holding the camera still, so it is very shaky at times. Sorry.
Big thanks to Anonymous for the Schoeps audio. I used the stock mic for audio on the GH5S and it is just massive distortion. I was shocked that Pluraleyes would synch 2 of the 3 parts with the source audio sounding so awful. It turned out alright.
This is in 2 parts- the main set is here, and the last few minutes are on part 2, posting in a couple minutes here.

Jawbreaker- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca. 1/31/19 Single Camera version Canon HFG40 Rode Videomic Pro St

Last year on this date, I lucked out and was on my way home from my work’s sales conference in SF and was able to catch this show in Berkeley. I had 6 cameras ready to film, but I was not allowed to put my gopros up so I only have 3 angles. I hope to get this edited one day- we are waiting on audio.
This one is the stationary camera in the old sound booth. There are some vibration issues up there, even though I tried to avoid them by sticking gel heels on the legs of the tripod… nope, too bassy. Even with that, this was the best full-show single camera angle to post.

Jawbreaker- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca. 1/31/19 Live Multicam with Multitrack Soundboard audio 1080p HD

First of all, GILMAN IS NOT CLOSING. That was a poorly timed joke be someone who thought it would be funny to “rick roll” people on the same day that Uptown Lounge in Oakland announced they were closing their doors permanently. Dude needs to understand that jokes are all about the timing.

Anyway, here is a video I have been wanting to share for quite a while now, but I am glad we waited. The multitrack audio sounds fantastic! Ethan Zeitman did a really great job with the mix. Also, some of my gopro’s were cleared off stage right before the band started and it kinda screwed up my shot, but Daniel Hague was there and his angle was exactly what we were missing, so it all worked out.

Here’s 1 more really cool treat from Anthony Lew. He also has the program from the show with set times that I will post in FB comments- they “headlined” over a lot of big bands! Sounds really great.

Jawbreaker- Off the Alley, Homewood Il. 3/31/94 xfer from unknown gen VHS tape Live East Bay Punk

I don’t have much time so this one needs to be quick. Here is another one from the Turn it Around digitizing project, from Jason Ross’ collection. The gen is unknown but it is relatively low. It looks like only 1 song in inferior quality has made its way to YT so far.

Jawbreaker- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca 1/14/94 xfer from low gen soundboard audiotape East Bay Punk

Here’s a gift to all of us, from Anthony Lew. Thank you!
This mix is so perfect, I didn’t want to mess with it. It is a hard panned mix, which means that some instruments are in the LH channel while others are in the RH channel. It is a bit disorienting with headphones on, but you get used to it.
Anthony even had a nice custom J-card with a photo and setlist from the show.
Some funny banter about them signing to a major label.
Anthony also gave me a split 7″ of his band Sick Burn with bay area thrashers These Bastards called “Burn these sick bastards” (get it?). Available at all finer stores soon!

Jawbreaker- McGregors, Elmhurst Il 8/23/93 xfer from 1st gen VHS tape Live East Bay Punk

I was finally organizing about 500 discs on random spindles into some semblance of order, and I came across these. I digitizied a ton of stuff for Corbett and the East Bay Punk documentary, and I kept the raw files for these ones. These come from Jason Ross’ collection of great tapes that he sent me a few years back.
This tape (as with most mcgregor’s tapes) is super overexposed. Now that I know how to adjust it with the Canopus, I will need to re-transfer this sometime in the future.
I’ll be posting east bay punk/gilman/lookout related artists all week!

Jawbreaker- St. Stephens Church Washington DC 6/5/93 xfer from low gen soundboard audio tape

I had a good part of the day yesterday to get through some music projects and I thought I was going to get SO MUCH done… then I started working things across my desk. I got the 45(!) download codes for LPs I bought all done, and 1 audio project that I had already thought was done. That’s it- I got through 8 inches of desk space, and there are about 50 more projects to go. Thanks for your patience.
All of you east bay punk and lookout records fans will be happy since the one project that I finished was all of Todd Pritchard’s requests that had been sitting here since December of 2019. Here’s the first- a nice Jawbreaker soundboard that I rebalanced in Izotope. It blows me away that this church was used as a punk venue for such big bands. We had a place in orangevale that did mostly local shows, but nothing along the size of Fugazi and Jawbreaker.
They get the mixed dialed a couple of minutes in.

Jawbreaker- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca 5/2/93 xfer from master soundboard tape

Last August, I went to visit Radley (1st full-time Gilman soundman 1987-1996?) at his home in San Francisco. We had a blast talking about music. It was funny, I have diverse musical tastes, but nothing like him. I would want to talk about some type of rock music, and he was throwing on high def audio CD’s of country albums.. which I also enjoy.
While I was there, he brought out a binder full of CD’s of shows he mixed and recorded at Gilman. I think this was a binder of the best ones, as the mix on most of these are better than your average Gilman mix. So, thanks to Radley and I hope you don’t mind me posting some of these on occasion.
This one sounds like it could be a matrix tape- I hear a lot of audience and boomy bass in there. The guitar and vocals were a bit buried so I fixed it up a little in Izotope.
Posting since Jawbreaker is touring, and we got to see them Sunday night.
