Exodus- 3rd & Castro, Oakland Ca. 3/6/22 4K UHD Live Encores w/Rick Hunolt

Here is the last 20 minutes of the Exodus show yesterday. Why only the last 20min? Well, I wanted to get something up ASAP and the entire show is over 100GB and would have taken days to process. I also screwed up an audio setting for the first 30min of the show so it doesn’t sound as good as this does.
Sorry about the angle- I know that Tom is obstructed by a sidefill- there was no good place to film from(this was a blocked off street- all flat). I needed to be close to the PA for the Rode to sound decent AND avoid being crushed by the pit, so I found the one street sign and posted up against it. It helped in 2 ways- it allowed me to stabilize the camera (I had my monopod in my pocket and camera way the hell up there) and the sign helped shield me a little from flying bodies coming out of the pit. I still get blasted a couple of times, but I didn’t get knocked down. Sorry to all the folks who went full-bore into the street sign. I bet they are hurting today.
It is so cool to see the band having so much fun up there.

The Boneless Ones- 3rd & Castro, Oakland Ca. 3/6/22 4K UHD complete show w/ Rode Videomic Pro Stereo

Man, this one took forever to render to 4k on YT. We might see Exhumed and the complete Exodus set next month at this rate.
Anyway, Boneless Ones were the first band up. I thought I had given myself plenty of time (over 2 hours!) to drive from Sacramento, find parking and get ready to film. Nope. I got in at 1:55pm for a 2pm set time. Also, the sun was a huge pain in the ass for their set- the shadows darkened the front of their body, so I had to crank up my exposure to compensate.
It was a good set- this version of the boneless ones is different than the ones I have heard on compilation records- very metal thanks to Craig Locicero (Forbidden, Dress the Dead) and Chris Kontos (a million bands, but probably best known for Attitude Adjustment and Machine Head).

Exhumed- 3rd & Castro, Oakland Ca. 3/6/22 4K UHD Complete Set Rode Videomic Pro Death Gore Metal

Exhumed played in the middle slot last Sunday. I wasn’t familiar with their material, but they were definitely the most evil band of the day. Apologies for pulling my camera away when they started spraying the blood- it looked like it was coming right for us!

Exodus- 3rd & Castro, Oakland Ca. 3/6/22 Complete 4K UHD w/ Schoeps Audio Canon HF G60

Finally, here is the complete Exodus set. I made a mistake with my microphone for the first 40min of the set, so thanks to Ted Mattes, he hooked me up with a Schoeps audio recording and it sounds much better now.
Such a great show and a fun time- like Zetro said, there were so many bands represented that built the bay area thrash scene. I must commend all of us 50-somethings that kept the pit going for the entire show. I saw a couple people take a headfirst dive right over by me, hope everyone got home safely and avoided the hospital. Damn, what a party.

The Coverups- 40th Street Block Party, Oakland Ca. 7/20/19 4k UHD Live Panasonic GH5S Green Day

OK, thanks to the community who informed me that I need to add a color LUT to my GH5S in order for the color to look right in the future. On a side note, OMG why is this so complicated?
I went ahead and color corrected this one in Adobe Premiere. Sorry for the multiple uploads- 1 more (2 camera) version is forthcoming.

The Coverups are a cover band consisting of:
Billie Joe Armstrong- Guitar/Vocals
Mike Dirnt- Guitar/Vocals
Jason White- Guitar/Vocals
Bill Schneider- Bass
Chris Dugan- Drums

Huge thanks to Frank Yeeann Chan for yelling over to me when I was walking by, and letting me hang out with him- it turned out to be a pretty nice place to video.

Paper Dolls- 40th Street Block Party, Oakland Ca. 7/20/19 Live Color Corrected Panasonic GH5S Rode

So I was stuck in horrendous traffic from Sacramento to Oakland when I was trying to get to the block party. I thought I left in PLENTY of time to see Sarchasm play at noon, but I sat in traffic for over an hour by vacaville. I get to the front of the slowdown and discover that they closed a lane to trim bushes. On a goddamn saturday morning. WHAT THE HELL CALTRANS?

Anyway, I missed Sarchasm. I also missed Destroy Boys as they played at the same time as our 924 Gilman board meeting. So, only this and Coverups. These guys were pretty good- east bay pop punk.

The Coverups- 40th Street Block Party, Oakland Ca. 7/20/19 HD Live Multicamera Green Day

OK, this is the last version of The Coverups block party that I plan to post. It is a multicamera edit which consists of the GH5S color corrected angle + a Canon HF G40 that I mounted to a tree. The tree was flimsy and dropped a bunch of crap all over me when I mounted it. Glad the tree remained standing- you can see it bouncing a bit in the video. We also used a different audio source from the tree mount. Sounds a bit better.
The Coverups are a cover band consisting of:
Billie Joe Armstrong- Guitar/Vocals
Mike Dirnt- Guitar/Vocals
Jason White- Guitar/Vocals

The Longshot- Golden Bull, Oakland Ca. 6/7/19 Live Multicam Green Day

So much to say about this one. It was pretty packed at the Golden Bull, but they got a new stage setup and the sightlines were still pretty decent. This was a guerilla multicam- I wish I could ask permission (and get a gopro on the drummer) but Billie Joe never appears until it is time to walk onstage. So 3 cameras it is.
HUGE thanks to Dan Hague for the help with filming. He handles 1 G40 on a monopod, and I did the other one. Plonk a gopro on the corner of the stage and we are all set. Another HUGE thanks to Tromster for the edit.

No Statik- 1234 Go! Records, Oakland Ca. 2/9/19 Multicam w/KILLTHATCAT

So this was day 3 of a crazy 3 show run in 3 days, with the night before being another trip to SF in the middle of a storm. So I was running on fumes. I had hoped to go to Bottom of the Hill to see the Undead after this, but there was no way.

I still can’t believe they book Infest at 1234 Go! Records. It was so packed and there were huge drops of sweat dripping off the ceiling. I was record shopping right before this set so I got stuck in the back of the room. It made for kind of a crappy G40 monopod angle, but it sounds great!

This was No Statik’s last show ever. The lead singer shoved me off stage while I was trying to set up a gopro behind the drummer. Haha, sorry for being in the way. Thanks to Daniel Hague (Killthatcat) for taking my angles and mixing them with his for a 3 camera multicam. It is chaotic, but that is how the show was.

Infest- 1-2-3-4 Go! Records, Oakland Ca. 2/9/19 Multicam with Rode Audio PV Powerviolence Punk

This show was so packed that it was like a sauna inside the room. In fact, sweat was coming off the pipes above and raining on the crowd. It was SO gross. I got nailed in the face a few times.
Tough show to film- Joe was in the crowd more often than he was on stage. At least it sounds good!
