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.

The Polyorchids- Blue Lamp, Sacramento Ca 12/14/17 LIVE Canon HFG30 Rode SVP Mic

So the Polyorchids only have 3 shows left (2 after last night) before Justin moves and they take a “long nap”. Last Night’s show at the Blue Lamp was so great. I got there late- I got to hear the end of “popgun” from the sidewalk out front. I only missed the first 2 songs. Sorry for the somewhat sloppy camerawork. I had to get my shit together as the show went on. They play at the palms and at cafe colonial soon- check them out.

I had so much fun on my 50th birthday, and it all fell together perfectly. The Blue Lamp had a late slot open up on that day, and 3 of my favorite bands were available to play. So cool- The Polyorchids debuted some new material at the time, which ended up on their new CD. Great performance! Thanks for playing, and happy belated birthday Justin!

Man, I love this band. They have that genuine rural sound- it just sounds like woodland/winters, ca. to me. Kinda like Uncle Tupelo sounded like rural Illinois, these guys sound like rural sacramento valley. This was the best show I have ever seen of them and the crowd went nuts. It was like 1,000,000 degrees in the colony. Also, the colony’s PA is having some issues so vocals sound a bit blown out.

The Polyorchids- The Colony, Sacramento Ca. 4/1/17 Part 1 Canon HFG30 and Rode mic

There have been a ton of great bands in Sacramento over the years. I have counted locals as my favorites since the mid-80s, starting with Redrum and Sentinel Beast, then on to Bliss, The Groovie Ghoulies, The Knockoffs, The Skirts, and all the way to now with The Strange Party, The Moans, Little Tents, Dead Dads and tons more. Here’s another GREAT sacramento band who are relatively new to me. You must go listen to their EP on bandcamp- so great! There are no monitors at The Colony, so cut them some slack.
