Sarchasm- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca. 2/23/19 Canon HFG40 Rode Videomic Pro Stereo East Bay Punk

Here is the next in the “one angle from my backlog of unedited multicams” series. Since 924 Gilman announced their closure today due to Coronavirus, I thought I would post a new to youtube video from there.
I really think these guys (and maybe get married) are the cream of the crop of the new generation of Gilman bands. Catchy songs, everyone sings, just great stuff.
They have stuff out on Asian Man. Check it out.

Sarchasm- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca. 1/31/19 Live (Semi) Multicam East Bay Punk

This one requires a little bit of explanation. I wasn’t even supposed to go to the Jawbreaker show, but I blew out of a work conference (in San Francisco) early to go to the show. There was some kind of traffic issue on the Bay Bridge which took me on a huge detour and I got to the show super late. It took something like 2 or 2.5 hours to get from SF to Berkeley.
So, when I walk into Gilman, I see that Sarchasm is getting ready to play. I haul ass and start setting up cameras. So, for the first 10min of the show, you only get 1 camera from the old soundbooth.. then you get camera #2 (Ladder mount) at about 9:30, then my camera from straight back at about 12:30 in. Sorry- I know Alex and the band really wanted this documented. Not only that, but there was no multitrack recording of the show, so you get stock camera audio.
Regardless, the band is still great and it is still listenable.

Sarchasm- Cafe Colonial, Sacramento Ca. 6/24/18 Live Canon HFG40 Rode Video Pro Stereo Mic

Here is almost all of Sarchasm’s set from The Cafe last week. I think I only missed the first song. They are such a good band- catchy pop punk songs- and they continue to get tighter and bring better songs each time they come to town. They have a new 7″ out on Asian Man.

Sarchasm- Whiskey Barrel Tavern, Stockton Ca. 2/6/17 Multicam with Rode VPS Audio!

Sarchasm is one of the “new wave” of bands who have sprouted from 924 Gilman’s scene. Bass player Alex Botkin is the guy responsible for the Lookouting shows along with a bunch of other cool shows along the way under the “taco truck” name. I had never been to the Whiskey Barrel before- it is a challenging place to film. They only have fluorescent lights, and the lights are behind the performers. So, bright backs, dark faces. Hm. It still turned out ok. Filmed with 2 HFG30 and 1 HFG10 on the pole, pointed at Alex.

Sarchasm- The Colony, Sacramento Ca. 1/11/17 Canon HFG30 Rode Video Pro mic

Here is a small part of Sarchasm’s set at The Colony earlier this month. Sarcasm are a bay area band made up of Gilman Street volunteers. Alex Botkin (bass/vocals) is the guy who put on the lookouting. They are playing on Feb 4 with Surrogate Brains and Last Communion in Stockton. Who wants to go?
