Kepi Ghoulie- Dimple Records, Sacramento Ca. 3/16/19 LIVE HD Reanimation Festival FULL Album Set

Man, this was cool. I have seen Kepi & the Ghoulies more than any other band, and I have never heard him do a few of these. He played the entire Reanimation Fest album plus a couple of other hits.
Sorry, this is not by best camerawork. I was putting the camera down in between songs to help my daughter tie balloons and then I was having some fun with balloons during the set. I also forgot my monopod so I had to do the old school handheld thing.

Direct Hit! – Holy Diver, Sacramento Ca. 2/24/19 Canon HFG40 Rode Videomic Pro Stereo

Direct Hit was the one band on the bill that I had not heard before. They were amazing- catchy songs with killer harmonies. I was not expecting this type of melody and energy- so great. I looked back at one point and saw their merch guy singing along at the top of his lungs. That’s when you know it’s good- the guy who sees the set every day is into it! They have a CD out on Fat Wreck Chords- I grabbed one.

There was an unbelievably stacked lineup at Holy Diver Sunday before last. Thanks to Sean Hills for promoting such a great show.
Dog Party were second on the bill. They don’t play very often anymore- Lucy lives in So Cal so this was a rare treat!

Vinnie Guidera & the Dead Birds- The Colony, Sacramento Ca 2/22/19 Canon HFG40 Rode Videomic Pro Ste

So I am stuck in Oregon on business travel so I will post until I get too tired here.
The Colony is back! I was so happy to step into the room and see a GOOD PA set up! AJ did a nice job with sound all night- that room is unforgiving. I was also happy to see City Mouse and to be one of the first to buy the new Sad Girlz Club CD!
Vinnie Guidera & the Dead Birds opened the show. When you see a band as talented as VGDB opening, you know you are in for a good night. I picked up the latest record “Shedding” which is available at their bandcamp site. (hint hint).

City Mouse- The Colony, Sacramento Ca. 2/22/19 Canon HFG40 Rode Videomic Pro Stereo

City Mouse is one of my favorite bands- they put out my favorite album of 2017 and they have not been to Sacramento since the release of Get Right. This is the best I have ever seen them, even though I think some of the members were just filling in for this short west coast tour. SO GOOD. I think the 2nd guitar really helps fill out the sound. I loved it so much that I bought the LP and 7″ even though I already had them. I am cursed to never own a City Mouse shirt.

Bastards of Young- The Colony, Sacramento Ca. 2/22/19 Canon HFG40 Rode Videomic Pro Stereo

Bastards of young were second on the bill at Sad Girlz Club’s CD release show. This set was the BEST that I have ever heard the colony sound. In between songs, I almost yelled out “nice mix AJ” but I thought that would sound ridiculous.
This is a typical 30 minute set from B.O.Y., but just as tight if not tighter than usual. I realized that I have video recorded them a LOT over the past few years.
