The Dickies- Observatory, Santa Ana Ca. 1/4/20 4K UHD Master Video Punk Greg Hetson Circle Jerks

While on vacation with the family in L.A. last week, I was lucky enough to make it over to the Observatory and catch the 2 bands that I really wanted to see- TSOL (40th anniversary show) and The Dickies.
I have been going to see the Dickies since 1988. In fact, they were on of the first bands I ever filmed in May of 88. This show was the best I have ever seen them, hands down. Great set and great performance.
They announced that their LAST album is coming out soon… does this mean that they are going to stop/retire? Man, that would be a bummer.. but if they keep sounding like this, it will be good to go out on top.
Features an appearance by Greg Hetson on guitar on 1 song, and in the backstage audience behind Stan.

TSOL- Observatory, Santa Ana Ca. 1/4/20 4k UHD Live Video 40 Year Anniversary Set Rare Songs t.s.o.l

After a lot of back and forth (trying to get permission to video TSOL, then buying a nirvana reunion ticket and seeing that camera rules changed, then cancelling Nirvana and going to TSOL anyway), I made a last minute decision to see TSOL.. and boy am I glad I did. What a set!
When I saw that they were doing a 40th anniversary set with “old songs never played before”, I was hoping that they would play something off of my favorite album “Beneath the Shadows”. I about lost it when they opened with Soft Focus. It was obvious that the band enjoyed playing these songs as well.
If this tour is coming to your town, you must go.

1984 Crucifix Members- Observatory, Santa Ana Ca. 6/14/14 4 camera Multicam w/soundboard audio Pt. 1

This was probably the craziest day ever for me. We agreed to hold a backyard concert for Shannon Curtis that day. I bought a ticket & plane ticket to see 1984 in orange county. I did not realize until after we committed to both events that they were on the SAME DAY. So, we hosted the backyard show, then I jumped in the car and sped to the airport and flew to orange county to see the show. I get inside (Thanks Chris from 1984) and realize that my tripod for my 2nd camera was broken. Looking back, I am glad I did because I approached some other guys with video cameras and introduced myself and asked about tripods. They did not have one, but I got to meet the VULTURE VIDEO guys and it started a great friendship/collaboration that is going strong a year later. This is a 4 camera multicam with soundboard audio. My camera was an HFG10 with stock mic, plus I mastered the soundboard. Vulture Video is responsible for the rest of the angles. Thanks Ryan and company!! Also, I need to send a huge thanks to Agelos Porf and “bong” for editing and authoring this one. It is AMAZING- probably the 2nd best video we have ever done next to The Faction (which is being commercially released). So, thanks again guys. I know I say it a lot, but I really appreciate it. Enjoy.

Resist and Exist- Observatory, Santa Ana Ca. 6/14/14 Audio Soundboard master Anarcho Peace Punk

Hey, it’s Monday again! Here is another audio post to enjoy while you start your work week. I described the crazy circumstances around this show in the dr. know and 1984 posts that you can find on This set was the first one I recorded that night. I had a video wristband so I went up to the soundman with my standard bullsh*t story of doing a multicam shoot and needing soundboard access. Soundmen usually tell me to get lost during the show, but this guy was super cool, shrugged his shoulders and plugged me in. thank you.
Another fun fact about this one- you can hear Kyle Toucher say something at the end of their set like “that’s how it’s done”. That was a comment about R&E’s set- I guess Kyle isn’t a fan!
