Tool- Sacramento Memorial Auditorium, Sacramento 8/26/98 xfer from SVHS Master Tape Enhanced Maynard

Happy Father’s Day! I had planned to post the most Dad rock thing ever today, but I thought Father’s Day was last sunday and posted prematurely. So, looking through all of the stuff to post, what is the most Dad friendly… TOOL! Dads love Tool.
This one is special- this was filmed by Gary Shurtleff and another one of the bootleg video guys back then. He then mixed the 2 angles (in Analog!) with a multicam mixer down to VHS. I transferred the tape in SVHS quality and cleaned up the grain in Neat Video. Looks damned good, better than the other versions that have been posted to YT.
Brian, did you put this show on?

Eels- Sacramento Memorial Auditorium 12/11/96 KWOD Chistmas DAT Master Soundboard Rebalanced Partial

This one has a story. Brian McKenna promoted this show and I had snuck my DAT deck into the venue. I ask him if we could get Sebadoh’s permission to tape since I had taped them back at Cattle in 1992. We get backstage and Lou Barlow says “oh, YOU are the guy who taped that Cattle Club show? I saw that for sale in Cambridge as a bootleg”. I had to explain that I was not an international bootlegging criminal and that some asshole that I traded with must be selling it. He still gave permission, thanks Lou! And see? This one never got bootlegged.
I had total impostor syndrome, taping through the board at this show. This was the place where I saw my first rock show (Iron Maiden/Scorpions 1982) so it was pretty surreal.
I caught some of the Eels set since they played right before Sebadoh. There is some connection issue about 4min in, but I was able to rebalance this thing and it sounds pretty nice.

This Sebadoh set is WAY better than the one that we saw at Cattle. That one was painful. They do my all time favorite Sebadoh song, Willing to Wait.

The Lemonheads- Sacramento Memorial Auditorium KWOD Christmas 12/11/96 DAT Soundboard Master xfer En

Here’s the last (partial) show that I got from KWOD show in 1996. I was a huge Lemonheads fan and was hoping that the soundman wouldn’t notice this guy standing next to the board with a DAT deck in his hand, attached to the board by a cable. It worked for about half the set until he walks over, looks at the back of the board and pulls the cables out at the beginning of Hospital. I was thinking “NO NO NO”. Oh well, I was happy to get anything.
Mix starts out a bit heavy on drums, but gets better a few minutes in.
