Field Day- Alex’s Bar, Long Beach Ca. 5/27/22 4K UHD Complete show Dag Nasty

I planned a long weekend in southern cal to take the kids to Six Flags last weekend, so I grabbed a ticket for this FEAR show.. and it was a really nice surprise to have Field Day added to the bill after the show sold out. Field Day is Peter Cortner (Vocals) and Doug Carrion(Bass) along with the loudest drummer I have ever heard and a guitarist who is not Brian Baker(but still alright) doing Dag Nasty’s greatest hits and some new stuff.
They were fantastic. They blew the headliner off the stage, in my opinion. Their 45min set was longer than Fear’s as well. This was a super difficult show to film, as Peter was down on the floor/pit area for pretty much the entire time so I had to bounce between finding him in the pit, focusing the camera, then back to the band, focusing the camera. I am still pretty happy with it. You can tell I was really into the show. I hope you cant hear me singing along.

Fear- Alex’s Bar, Long Beach Ca. 5/27/22 4K UHD Complete show Compete performance of The Record

I am going to be busy tomorrow so you get 2 videos today‚Ķ and oh boy, do I have a story for you. In between Field Day and the Fear set, I was trying to figure out a good place to film without getting hammered by the pit. I decided to get right next to the bar- it is close to the stage and PA and usually isn’t too crazy there. So, while I am waiting for Fear to start, someone spills a beer all the way down the back of my pants. The perpetrator apologizes and leaves. There’s nothing I can do, so I stand there in wet pants and film the show. After the set, I see my friend Barbara Manning and I tell her that someone spilled beer down by back. I look back, and it was PUKE. Someone barfed on me and I did not realize it, then soaked in it for over an hour. I was so skeezed out that I took off my pants in the middle of the street in Long Beach and drove back to San Fernando (45min!) in my underwear, with the window down and heater on. The next day, I go to the car to fetch my hoodie and it was puked on as well.
Have a beer with Fear, indeed.
I don’t have much to say about the set, except I paid more than $1 per minute that they played. Also, they would be completely screwed if Spit Stix was not with them. He is one of the best drummers in the world and he carried the band through this set.

Avail- Macondo’s, Long Beach Ca 1/1/95 xfer 1st gen VHS tape complete show enhanced Tim Barry Punk

Well, I did everything I could with this one but the lighting was not very good in the first place. Well, the lighting is good on the crowd, but not the band. I took it from being super dark to semi-watchable. Thanks again to Wayne Triggs for letting me digitize and enhance these shows for posting.

Earth Crisis- Alano Club, Long Beach Ca. Mid-90s xfer from 1st gen VHS Enhanced

Wayne Triggs came by a couple of months ago and dropped off a bunch of VHS tapes for me to digitize. His friend videotaped a few hardcore shows in southern cal in the mid 90s, and this is one of them. Earth Crisis one one of their first tours. Pretty cool.

Here’s the last set from Wayne Triggs’ VHS tape with Avail, Strife, Earth Crisis etc. This is a partial set from Integrity- it runs until the VHS tape cuts. I wonder if the full set (and the master tapes) are still out there somewhere.

Strife- Alano, Long Beach 9/10/94 xfer from 1st gen VHS enhanced Complete Show Hardcore

Late post today- it’s been a rough day. Here is another one from Wayne Triggs’ collection. His friend filmed some mid-90s hardcore shows. This weekend, I am posting sets from (I think) the same show. Here is Strife with an EARLY set. They talk about their upcoming LP, One Truth. Cool to see them in their home area in such a small place.

Uncle Tupelo- Bogart’s, Long Beach Ca. 2/25/93 xfer from Hi8 master Videotape enhanced Wilco Farrar

Haha, I have had this one on my desk for over a month because I thought I needed to synch DAT audio with the video. It turns out that I forgot my DAT rig that night. I remember now- I was too worried to turn around and get the gear, because I was afraid of missing the show. It turns out that I got there WAY too early and ended up waiting forever for the show to start. Oh well.
Ken Coomer breaks a snare drum during the set and it takes forever to get it replaced.

Luna- Bogart’s, Long Beach Ca. 11/7/92 Transfer from Hi8 Master for first time Ever!

It was strange. Every time I went to Bogart’s, something bizarre and memorable happened. One time, it was when Uncle Tupelo played there and broke their snare on the first song and had a huge delay waiting for another. Another time, it was Penelope Houston and meeting Todd Nakamine, and we have been friend ever since. Or this one- Dean Wareham mentions this show in his “Black Postcards” book, because a guy in the front row was so irritating that he agreed to fight at the end of the set. Like I said, bizarre. The vibe of the club just seemed to invite it.
