This was probably the most violent show I have seen since Lee Ving’s Army at the Whiskey in 1995. I got there a little late so I missed the first song. I was WAY back in the venue and was still getting hit by people.

This was a show that I was looking forward to for a while, and others must have felt the same way. It was packed, even though the foo fighters were playing in town that night. I must have seen Dissident Aggressor play back in the 80s, but they did not stick with me for some reason. When they posted the show announcement and the songs on reverb nation, I was amazed as to how good they are. They still sound great 30 years later- sometimes that style of vocal gets harder to pull off as you get older, but they pulled it off perfectly. filmed with 2 Canon HFG30, 1 Canon HFG10 and a gopro by the drummer.
I had planned to go see one of my favorite regional punk bands Civil War Rust last night, but my son had stomach flu so I stayed close to home. I am cursed to never see CWR. Zoran had invited me to film the show so I headed over to Boardwalk for their opening set. The BW is only 5min from my house so I could do that safely. They were very good- I had not heard them before. Very lively/funky metal(but not the crappy funk metal) with great guitar playing. Plus, you get Zoran’s Iron Serbian outfit as a bonus. It was a good thing that I did not go to CWR because I was sick as a dog last night, and still am today. We ALL have stomach flu now. Come on over and join in the fun! PS: I got there late and missed the first song. Stupid new parking rules at boardwalk.

I was happy to see that one of my all-time favorite bands was coming to town.. and to a club right next to my home. The soundboard mix and the sound in the club were less than stellar, but Jason was able to make it sound good with the matrixed audio. Thanks again to Agelos for the edit job- you did an excellent job! Lineage: Canon HFG10 (x2), HFG30, Soundboard audio, Schoeps MKIV.
A little background on my transfer setups: I have 3 PC’s for music work. One captures audio only (windows XP!), One captures VHS/8mm video/mini DV, and the other one is my main computer that does everything else.
So I am on the VHS transfer PC and I see a stray folder called “HFG10 Tripod”. Hmmm, that type of HD file isn’t supposed to be on that PC… it turns out that it was a second angle of this classic Croissants show, when they opened for the Adolescents 5 years ago! So we took the original G30 angle and edited it together with the nice sounding soundboard and this newly discovered G10.
Fun fact about this show- Tony and the rest of the Adolescents loved The Croissants’ set so much, that they had them open up BIG shows for them at the Observatory in orange county. How cool is that?

This one turned out pretty well, despite the issues I had. I overexposed one angle pretty bad, and the soundboard recording did not turn out (these new digital boards and their thumb drives are annoying!). Thanks to The Copyrights for allowing me to tape and to Agelos for the editing. Sorry the sound is so lame.. Filmed with 2 HFG10s on tripods and 1 HFG30 on monopod
