Holehog- Cafe Colonial, Sacramento Ca. 4/5/22 4K UHD Master Canon HF G60

Holehog is a hardcore band from Sac that has been around for a couple of years now. Features Matthew Kadi on bass (Drummer for Monster Squad, Great Apes, and more). Somehow, I think I messed up and plugged my rode mic into the wrong hole- there is a headphone and a mic input jack side-by-side on the camera, and the lights went down before I was able to check which one was right. Audio is a bit distorted. Sorry- now I am really hoping that the multitrack sets turned out ok!

Cockring- Cafe Colonial, Sacramento 4/5/22 4K UHD Master Canon HF G60 Partial Queercore

Happy Easter to all of those who celebrate! Hmm, I thought that I caught just about all of Cockrin’g opening set for Murphy’s law, but this is only 11 minutes long. Maybe their set was super short. I still can’t figure out if this is the Rode mic or the stock mic. This sounds like Rode, but some of the other sets have some distorted audio. I think this might have been the band’s first show.

Murphys Law- Cafe Colonial, Sacramento Ca. 4/5/22 4K UHD Master Single Camera Version

Happy Sunday everyone. Here is another show where I filmed with 4 cameras, but I decided to put one angle up until we get it done- consider this raw footage for now. Matt the soundman also recorded a multitrack, so I need to ask if he’d be willing to share that for this video too. This was such a fun show- half stand up comedy, half music. Jimmy is a funny guy.

M.D.C.- Cafe Colonial, Sacramento Ca. 4/2/22 4K UHD Master w/ Rode Videomic Pro Stereo Millions Dead

There were so many good shows last weekend and I was planning on hitting at least 3 of them, and then my son got me sick. After resting up for a good part of Saturday, I was able to get to the show just in time to see MDC. It was nice catching up with Barry briefly. MDC’s new songs are really good!
There are a few cuts in the video. I did not have the energy to charge batteries before the show, so I was juggling 3 almost dead batteries while filming. I also tried a new setup (GH5S and the DPA mics) in preparation for the 7 seconds shows and it worked out great. Hope you like it.

Jawbreaker- Ace of Spades, Sacramento 3/27/22 Pt. 1 4K UHD Lumix GH5S w/Schoeps Audio

Jawbreaker came to Sac last month and thanks to the generosity of TM Shawn, I was able to get a “photo” pass. I brought the DSLR (my best camera) and shot the show in 4K. Unfortunately, 2 things went wrong. First, I used a way too powerful lens so I could not pan back and get a full band shot. The show was packed, so breaking down and reattaching a different lens was kinda out of the question. Second, I got really fatigued holding the camera still, so it is very shaky at times. Sorry.
Big thanks to Anonymous for the Schoeps audio. I used the stock mic for audio on the GH5S and it is just massive distortion. I was shocked that Pluraleyes would synch 2 of the 3 parts with the source audio sounding so awful. It turned out alright.
This is in 2 parts- the main set is here, and the last few minutes are on part 2, posting in a couple minutes here.

Lightweight- Cafe Colonial, Sacramento 3/5/22 4K UHD Complete

Man, I spent all week posting videos from last weekend. Here is the final one- from Jake’s 30th birthday show at the cafe. THat’s him in the thumbnail- he lays drums for lightweight. He threw a FREE show for his birthday which was a lot of fun. The Cafe had just reopened after being closed for a couple months due to pipe issues within the complex. Between this show being full and a big grind show at the colony, I don’t think I had ever seen the bar so busy before. Anna was flying at superhuman speed all night!

Defender Grade- Cafe Colonial, Sacramento Ca. 3/5/22 4K UHD Rode Videomic Pro Stereo Pop Punk

When I got to the cafe last night for the show, the opening band, Defender Grade, was already playing. They sounded really good so I headed in and started filming asap. I still had my camera on manual focus and sports mode from filming my daughter’s soccer game, so it takes me a song or so to fix focus. Good band, I will definitely leave the house to see them again. Love those melodic bass lines!

Bird Control- Cafe Colonial, Sacramento Ca. 3/5/22 4K UHD Punk

NOTE- 1st 30 seconds is SILENT- I forgot to turn on my mic.
Bird Control were the second band up at Jake’s birthday show. Man, this was a fun night. I had never heard this bend before- interesting mix of a shoegaze sounding guitarist and a punk band. The lead vocalist is very active. Their songs sound bouncy to me. What the hell does that mean? Listen for yourself.
PS: The new soundproofing make the room sound so much better- thanks Chris!

Sad Girlz Club- Cafe Colonial, Sacramento Ca 3/5/22 4K UHD Complete Show

Here’s a much-anticipated set from Jake’s birthday show on Saturday. Sad Girlz Club were born in Sacramento, but they moved to southern California a couple of years ago. It sounded like they have not played a whole lot of shows since moving due to the pandemic, so having them come up here for this one show was a rare treat.
The set included old favorites from their Hard Feelings release, along with at least 1 new song that was released on a 7″ by Lavasocks records last week!

Negative Approach- Ace of Spades, Sacramento 2/26/22 4k UHD Master Complete Show

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you moms out there- enjoy the day!
It took a while for this one to get prepped- the audio on my master tape was super thin, so I had to wait for better audio. The audio has some slight issues in one channel on and off, but it is still WAY better than the audio from my little point and shoot. It looks like the audio taper missed the first song of the set- I can share that with the camera audio, if anyone is dying to see it.
By the way, Negative Approach is coming to the tiny Cafe Colonial this summer with locals Holehog and Sick Burn- a great lineup. You should buy advance tickets to that one if you want to see it- I can’t imagine tickets being available for long.
Oh, one last thing. The guitar player played the entire set with his back to the crowd, just like in the thumbnail. Strange
