Wow, I found a Little Tents show I never posted. This may have been their last show ever. They have been gone (over a year and a half) longer than they were together. 😦 I loved them, such a unique band.

I don’t know if you heard the news, but Little Tents is playing again tonight at Café Colonial! Get your butts over there! I will probably try to show up as well. This was a good show. The only downside was that Lemuria brought their own soundboard and Little Tents did not really get a chance to soundcheck, so the vocals are buried. Adam’s drums sound HUGE though.

I am really going to miss this band. This was billed as their last show ever, but they ended up playing a couple of days later at the café. I severely sprained my ankle so I could not walk/drive, so I missed the last last show. This one is a 4 camera job- HFG10 right next to stage (pointed up at Audrey), HFG30 (full stage angle), HFG30 (me shooting on a monopod) and a gopro hero4 silver behind Adam the drummer. Huge thanks to Agelos for the edit and to Jim McLain for helping brighten the gopro angle- it was the first time using the camera and I had no idea what I was doing. Thanks to AJ for the nice mix.
I wanted to wait until we had better audio for this one, but I will post it again once we are able to mix the soundboard with this mic. Little Tents are playing their second to last show EVER tonight at Starlite. You need to go. Here is their appearance at concerts in the park this year. Sorry the audio is not as good as others- in short, I blew it. They were great as always. One of the best bands in sac right now. Unfortunately, they did not turn on the lower mains so you get very little vocals on the video. Check their EP posted in comments for good quality audio of them
I had posted my single camera version of this set a few months ago. Here is the 2 camera version. Huge thanks to Jim McLain for filming with the 2nd camera and performing the edits! For Lys Mayo Adam J Jennings and Audrey Motzer.
Little Tents are a Sacramento “supergroup” of sorts, with 2 drummers in other bands(Audrey from mad judy and Lys from dead dads) playing guitar and singing. Bass is Jordan from Mad Judy, and Drums is Adam Anthro. I was shocked the first time I heard the band- the songs are very well crafted and melodic, with short bursts of scream/noise mixed in. Very unique and intense. One of the best new bands to come out of Sacramento. The video turned out pretty good- I was shooting on a dark stage, behind the PA and you can still see the band and hear vocals. I call that a success. They played this show as part of Danny Secretion’s cancer benefit. Thanks for making it happen, Danny!
