D Generation- Doug Fir Lounge, Portland Or. 8/30/16 1080p master w/Rode audio RIP Howie Pyro

So I went to play this video on the sac music archive yesterday(I posted it in 2016) and I realized that I posted the file with 90 seconds of no music from before the concert, rather than the concert itself. So here it is for the first time, I guess.
I have so many friends who knew Howie and the tributes have been amazing- what a life. I regret not meeting him.
Here is the original note from the 2016 listing:

I have been getting lucky lately on my business trips to Portland. Last time I was up, Venom Inc happened to be playing and this time D Generation was playing Doug Fir Lounge. I know some of their material, but not all of it.. they were AMAZING. They are one of those bands who has such mastery of the songs that they just melt your face with a nonstop wall of energy for an hour-plus. REALLY great. The only downside of the video is there is a slight vibration that I did not notice while filming & looking at the small camera screen. I should have known, as the steps I was standing on were hollow. Dammit. Filmed with Canon HFG30 and Rode Video Pro Stereo Mic.

Mudhoney- Sabala’s Portland Or 12/1/06 xfer from master tape enhanced

A couple years back, Barry Ward sent me a collection of master videotapes from his friend Craig. It took me forever to get to these, but I got these digitized last summer and now I am enhancing and posting them. This video is great but audio on is pretty distorted- I checked the usual places and could not find a good audio recording to match up. Let me know if one exists.

Adolescents- BComplex, Portland Or 8/12/06 xfer from master tape Live

Here’s another nice looking video from Craig Babb. There is no decent quality video of the band from this era, so happy this exists. Same call goes out on this one – if anyone has any leads on any high quality audio from this show, let me know.

Acid King- Sabala’s, Portland Or 9/30/05 xfer from master tape enhanced Stoner Rock Doom Metal

Here’s another video from Craig Babb’s collection. Audio is distorted, so if anyone has a lead on a cleaner audio source, let me know. Even though they are from SF, Acid King has a pacific northwest connection- the vocalist/guitarist in the band, Lori Steinberg, was married to Dale Crover.

Witch Mountain- Sabala’s, Portland Or. 9/30/05 xfer from master videotape enhanced

When I got the box of tapes from Craig, this is one of the first ones that made me do a serious double-take. I had no idea Witch Mountain had been around for so long. When I saw them at Starlite lounge in 2016, I thought they were a relatively new band. Wow. It looks like Rob took on the lead vocal duties in those early days.

Dixie Witch- Sabala’s, Portland Or. 11/6/04 xfer from master videotape Stoner Rock Texas

Here is another cool video from Craig Babb- he filmed so many heavy stoner rock/doom bands in the very early days of the genre. This one is a 10min clip from a show in Portland in 1994 by Dixie Witch. Audio is slightly distorted but still listenable. This kicks ass.

Satan’s Pilgrims- Lost Forest, Portland Or? Mid-1990s Surf Rock

Big thanks to Krista Wheeler in the Pacific Northwest Music Archives FB group for confirming that this show looked like it took place in Portland- there are going to be a lot more questions about vague dates & venue names coming up! She also told me that I messed up and put some of the Satan’s Pilgrims footage at the end of the galaxy trio post. Here is the rest of the Satan’s Pilgrims footage from that night.
