So sacramento’s renaissance man/doom master Chris Lemos celebrated his birthday yesterday. Man, he is pretty popular because there were a lot of people there for a Wednesday night. Even though Chris was drinking beer the entire time I saw him, he never seemed drunk. Amazing! Here is most of the XTOM HANX set from last night. Wonderful version of “Carry on My Wayward Son” in there somewhere.

So if you only watch one final summation video out of all these, watch this one. The van died in Kansas and they were busking to raise some funds for the trip home. It’s as much fun to watch the passers by reactions as much as the band. Well done!

The shower of UT archive shows continues! I am almost sure that this one is a 1st gen. I vaguely recall someone’s name and address being on the cassette J-card. Man, I should have taken pictures of the tapes.

Oh man, preparing this was a pain in the ass of epic proportions. I will put a screenshot of most, but not all of the working files in the FB comment if you want a good laugh. This one probably had the most dramatic improvement over the original, once enhanced. I somehow stopped the camera at about 22 minutes, which caused the audio/video synch to misalign. I have no recollection of what happened at that 22min mark, but you can see the camera being moved around, and you can even see Gary Scheppers at work in the soundbooth. This was the most unique set of the entire tour. The band had a bunch of equipment break/broken strings, so they started pulling out the covers at about 50 minutes… Doug Sahm and more. My recollection of this show was getting there super late because I spent the day with Jim Utz, getting gas about 45min outside of Lawrence and thinking it was kinda odd that NOBODY was around… until I drove back through there during the day and noticed that it was the shittiest part of kansas city ever. My only other memory from this city is going to a mexican food place that was a total hole in the wall- in a steel building in the middle of nowhere- and this group was having a party and they kept giving me shots of tequila.
