The Posies- The Octopus Literary Salon, Oakland Ca. 5/29/16 Part 1 Canon HFG30 and Rode Mic

The Posies did this crazy tour where they played TINY venues – capacity 80 or less. They would give you the venue name the day of the show. The Bay Area show was the last show of the tour and it was great- the venue had great sound and the sightlines were not bad for being so packed. I had 4 cameras with me, but only had room to use 1- a monopod on top of the merch table! Recorded with a Canon HFG30 and Rode Video Pro Stereo Mic. Thanks to Ken for permission to film.

The Posies- Cattle Club, Sacramento Ca. 4/14/91 xfer from master tape!

I went to over 50 Cattle Club shows, and this one is probably my favorite, if not one of the top 2 or 3 (Yo La Tengo/Barbara Manning 1992 and Buffalo Tom/Sebadoh/Pavement being the others). Dear 23 had just come out and I had it for about a month and was a big fan already. I had no idea what to expect live, but I thought that it would be jangly and low key. It was probably the loudest show I ever saw at Cattle. When I was taping, I could not hear any vocals, but luckily the mic picked them up. You get TWO big star covers- Feel and I am the Cosmos, years before Auer and Stringfellow would join big star. Holy shit. IT took days for my hearing to recover.

Posies- Cattle Club, Sacramento Ca. 4/14/91 LIVE ENHANCED Xfer from 8mm master

Wow. Now that I am getting used to using these new enhancement tools, these videos are coming out really nice. Here is the posies from Cattle. I bumped up the contrast and de-snowed the picture with neat. It looks much clearer than before.
