The Smoking Popes- Press Club, Sacramento Ca. 5/3/18 Star Struck One/ No More Smiles Live Multicam

This is amazing! We were so lucky to have The Smoking Popes come to the tiny Press Club in Sacramento a couple of weeks ago- thanks to Sean Hills for bringing them through. These guys have become one of my favorite bands- I just “discovered” them recently, thanks to Sean. This is a 5 cam edit.

Anime Aliens- Dimple Records Broadway, Sacramento Ca. 4/21/18 Canon HFG40 Rode VPS Mic

Here was stop 1 of “Dimple RSD Tour 2018”.
I barely made this show. I hit up Dimple Citrus Height & Folsom, then headed out to Broadway for the Anime Aliens show. I walked up right when they were starting. They have added Ronald James Hill (formerly of Charles Albright Band) on 2nd guitar. Charlie and Ron’s dual leads + the songs structure reminded me of Pavement cross with Thin Lizzy!
I really wanted to get a pic of the lady clapping out of time by the garbage can, but wanted to respect privacy. Just imagine her, right over there.

Sun Valley Gun Club- Colony, Sacramento Ca. 4/14/18 Canon HFG40

Man, what a lineup at the Colony last Saturday for the Polyorchids’ CD release show. Justin did a nice job with sound in a challenging situation. These guys (and lady) are an under appreciated gem in sacramento. Love them. I bought their new LP for $7! WHo sells LP’s for $7?

The Polyorchids- The Colony, Sacramento Ca. 4/14/18 Canon HFG40 & Rode VPS Mic

I’m so happy that despite Justin moving away, the Polyorchids are still going strong. This was from one of their 2 CD release shows last weekend. They have a full length CD out now, and it is amazing! They played a 55 minute set with a bunch of new ones. Tony even sings one. Great stuff. Nice job by Junstin Hel on sounds- it’s a tough room to make sound good.

Jesus and the Dinosaurs- Colony, Sacramento Ca. 4/14/18 Canon HFG40 Rode VPS Mic

So, I was really bummed to see that the wild drummer with the huge hair was no longer in the band, but the new guy was great! Things got a little wild during the set- they had some technical difficulty and they knocked the power out at the end. Wild times at the Colony.

Danny Secretion- Cafe Colonial, Sacramento Ca. 4/12/18 Canon HFG40 Rode VPS Mic

So I did something that I don’t normally do- I promoted a show and brought a band to town last week! 2 of my favorite bands/artists were super cool to open the show AND lend their equipment to the headliner (The Undead). Thanks so much guys! Danny opened the show with a truly awesome and unique set. He was so nervous to open for Bobby Steele! He put a lot of thought into the setlist. Listen to that first song and see if you recognize it…

Unsteady Heights- Phono Select, Sacramento Ca. 4/7/18 Canon HFG40 & Rode Video Pro Stereo Mic

So, umm, I screwed up. I was running out of battery so I lowered my monopod and changed the batteries about 9 minutes in… and then it seems that I FORGOT to hit my “record” button after the battery swap. So I was recording an awesome video with the thing on pause for the last 15-20 min of the set. D’oh! Sorry.
If you want a full set, check out the Cafe Colonial set from a couple months back.
