Metallica- Aftershock Festival, Discovery Park, Sacramento Ca. 10/8/21 4K UHD Live Panasonic Lumix

I went to the Aftershock fest for the first time and boy was it tiring! This one came out pretty nice- I was trying to hold the camera steady (it’s like practicing yoga.. for hours) and my back was getting pretty fatigued toward the end and you can tell- I get a little shaky with the camera. I was only 1 row back on the barrier of the VIP section, but there were 2 very excited fans in front of me who were waving their hands around A LOT- that explains why you see a bunch of dark shadows across the screen at times.
But, I’m nitpicking. It’s pretty ok for a massive festival video with a bazillion people there.

Metallica Orion Fest Footage: Skateboarding, Kirk’s Crypt, Metclub Tent, Custom Car, Jim Breuer 2012

Since we have been sick this weekend, I spent some time organizing some old family video footage. I found these non-musical performance clips I took from Orion Fest back in 2012 buried in the family discs. I forgot I filmed these-They are pretty cool. There is footage of the Van’s skate ramp with Steve Caballero, Kirk’s Crypt(outside only- line was too long!), Custom Car Show including some of Hetfield’s cars, a talk with Toby Stapleton & Dan Nykolayko in the metclub fanclub only tent talking about merch (moderated by Jim Breuer), and some footage of the memorabilia in the metclub tent as well. Metallica fans who did not attend the fest would probably like this. Enjoy!

BOOTLEG COWBOYS – The Music Industry’s Outlaw Historians Unreleased Documentary 2016

So here’s something a little different. My friend Gary Shurtleff funded & produced this feature-length documentary on concert bootleggers. It is really well written and I think the story is engaging. I am in the doc along with a bunch of my taping friends- Jesse Davis, Joe Burns and many more. Lots of footage from bigger shows in Sacramento- mostly metal but some punk as well.

We are posting it to the archive because Gary was blasted by the youtube copyright jackals and he pulled it from his channel, so we are using the “misfits method” to make it available to all of you.

I have a couple of speaking parts in it, so if you aren’t tired of my old man stories yet, check it out. Check it out anyway, it’s pretty entertaining.


Metallica – Tower Records Parking Lot, Sacramento, CA 6-4-96

Go figure. I punch in Sacramento in the search area on my youtube channel and a Metallica show is the first thing to pop up. Really enjoyed the experience of filming these rare flatbed truck gigs.

What a cool day this was. Metallica planned to perform LIVE 3 shows in one day to promote the upcoming release of the LOAD record in 3 different tower records parking lots…3pm San Jose, 6pm Concord, 9pm Sacramento. Since I lived in Concord that one excited me the most. But since the city of Concord would not issue the permits the band were only able to pull off San Jose and Sacramento which were both filmed. MFTMON was next to me shooting as well.

Metallica- Cal Expo Amphitheatre, Sacramento Ca. 7/23/94 xfer from master tape enhanced live

Tonight, Metallica is playing an outdoor show in Sacramento for the first time in over 20 years. It looks like they last played the Cal Expo Amphitheater (during the state fair!) in 1998. This one is from the tour prior to that one- the 1994 tour that came through in the summer of that year.
A huge thanks goes out to Gary Shurtleff (fromthenosebleeds yt channel) for bringing his master tape over last weekend for me to transfer, and for giving the OK to post this one. I see that “metconcerts100” has this posted, but it isn’t from the master tape.
Anyway, I hope everyone has fun at the show tonight- be prepared to walk about 5 miles. I’ll be the guy with longish hair and a 924 gilman hoodie on. Come say hi! If you aren’t going, watch this and imagine being there tonight. Haha.

Metallica- Arco Arena, Sacramento Ca. 12/12/88

My friend Gary Shurtleff let me know that this was just posted, and I have a funny story about this show. I *really* wanted to tape the show, but I did not have a decent audio recorder at the time. I borrowed my friend’s (anonymous) crappy audio recorder and snuck it in. While I was taping metallica, I got busted by the usher. She grabbed me firmly by the arm and walked me down to the main security. They took my recorder, but I pocketed the tape before I gave it up. I got the tape home and it was complete distortion.

So yesterday, a listenable recording of the same show pops up. I have no idea who taped it- it doesn’t sound like a Karl Lundmark tape. But here you go- Metallica on the AJFA tour.

Metallica- Berkeley, Ca. 9/2/83 Audio Only

Here’s another OLD Metallica recording that I did not see on youtube yet. This is from Mark Martin’s collection that I received in the mid 1980s, so it is likely a low gen cassette dub since he was tight with the bay area thrash metal traders. It sounds fair. Enjoy. I found this pic online that is an actual pic from the show.
