Old 97s- UC Davis Quad, Davis Ca. 5/6/01 xfer from master tape!

There was a time when I was a huge Old 97s fan. I would see every one of their shows in California. This is the time that they played the UCD quad for FREE at lunch. It was hotter than hell, so I started my DAT machine plugged into the soundboard and went to video. I came back after the show and my poor DAT had heat stroke- the display was black and it stopped. What a bummer. At least the video turned out nice. Filmed with an Aiwa DV camera(don’t know model #) and stock microphone.

Old 97s- Starry Plough, Berkeley Ca. 8/8/97 Direct xfer from 8mm Master Tape!

Here’s a video of the Old 97s in their prime- back when Rhett was nerdy and he beat his acoustic guitar so badly that it caused an arm injury. The unique aspect of this show is that Philip Peeples is not on drums- he had an inner ear infection so former manager Mike Schwidler is doing the honors (and does quite well). The show itself is a drunken party- they are playing a pub- and the atmosphere is loose and fun. In fact, Rhett drops a lollipop out of his mouth and kicks it from the stage mid-song.. and nails someone in the front row! It was funny. Enjoy! Filmed with a Sony TR-81 camera.
