The Queers- Holy Diver, Sacramento Ca 10/5/21 4K UHD Live Joe King

Last Tuesday, I was planning to shoot my first multicam show in 4K. I bought some used Gopro Hero 5 during the pandemic and I am even building a new server to handle the workload of 4k multicam editing.
So I get to the show and start to get set up… and I realize I brought the wrong gopro batteries. I left the ones for the Hero 5 on my desk at home, 25min drive each way. So you’ll eventually get a 2 camera 4k multicam- this angle and a shot from the back with the Canon HFG50.
I don’t know what it is about the queers live, but they play so loud that I can’t make out the songs. They will be halfway through a song and I’ll be like “oh yeah, I know this one”. It not the sound in the club- my audience mic sounds fine. My ears must not like all that midrange.
This one is the makeup post for yesterday- this weekend has been so busy between aftershock and family, I had no time to post. 1 more is coming today.

Joe Queer w/ The Moans- All Queers Pop Punk Set, Cafe Colonial, Sac 11/9/19 4K UHD

OK, this is going to be long.

TLDR version: The audio on this is horrible for the 1st 4 minutes, and fair for the next 10min. Fwd to 15:00ish if you can’t handle it.

Long version:
Man, what a crazy night. Danny flew Joe out to play a set of songs that he hasn’t played for about 20 years… which included a bunch of my favorites! About 20 minutes before they started, they moved the venue from Colonial Theater to Cafe Colonial. I had 7 cameras set up the the Theater and a recorder in the soundboard. So I had to do a mad scramble to grab 4 of the 7 to use at the cafe, and pack the other 3. I just left my tripods at the theater.
So they start the set and the volume is WAY louder at the cafe than the theater, so my camera’s levels were maxing badly for the first song. I was able to stop the camera and drop the levels, but they were still a bit distorted until the PA calmed down at about 15:00.
The set is great. Must watch.
After the show, I went to get my tripods, digital recorder etc and they LOCKED US OUT of the theater. Thankfully, AJ grabbed the valuable stuff. I was able to find Danny and we were all able to get our stuff out of there. That was the first time I ever had a bunch of cameras just tossed in the back of the car, loose.

Joe Queer & The Moans- Cafe Colonial, Sacramento Ca. 11/9/19 4cam Multicam

Here is the multicamera version of the Joe Queer w/ the Moans show from a few weeks back. I know I complained about the last minute venue move when I posted the single camera video, but this still came out pretty good. I want to thank Danny for making this happen- I love the queers’ pop stuff and they play almost none of it nowadays. It was really nice to hear my favorite songs done live.

The Queers- Blue Lamp, Sacramento Ca. 8/10/17 Part 1 Canon HFG30 Rode VPS Mic

The queers have been to Sac 3 times over the past year and a half, and this was BY FAR the best show I have seen. The stage volume of the other shows was so loud that the P.A. could not compete and it all sounded like a garbled, mushy mess. Well AJ worked his magic and got them to turn down a bit, and wow! Great set, great sound and people going crazy during the show. Sorry about this being in 3 pieces. I was busy blabbing with Jaz Brown between sets and forgot to change my battery.. so I had to do it mid-set.

The Queers- Cafe Colonial, Sacramento Ca. 3/27/16 Multicam with Schoeps Audio!

This was a tough show to film. The show was sold out, which means there is noplace to put any tripods in the club.. so I taped a monopod to the wall. It looks goofy as hell, but it worked through the Moans set and about halfway through this one… then the tape starts to slip and the wall camera just points at a ceiling fan. SO the rest is just my monopod camera. This was a special show- the cafe holds about 100 people and the show sold out month in advance. Everyone there was SO into the show. I thought I was a fan, but everyone there knew every word to every song. Amazing. Taped with a Canon HFG30 on the monopod, HFG10 taped to the wall, and Jason Ellis’ sweet Schoeps MK4 audio recording was used for the audio. Edited together by Agelos Porf. Thanks to everyone for the work!

The Queers- The Boardwalk, Orangevale Ca 6/12/07 Audio taken from Digital Master Clone DPA4061 mics

Yesterday we heard the news that The Boardwalk is closing for good. Even though it was a bit of a hike from Sacramento, it had a ton of great/legendary shows. My most memorable times there were in the mid 2000’s- 7 Seconds/Groovie Ghoulies in 2005 and The Muffs in 2006. It’s a shame when venues close and it seems that the pandemic is accelerating the closure of a lot of them.
Please support the local independent venues that remain, once it is safe to do so. We are running out of them.
In honor of the Boardwalk, here is a recording that Anonymous made in 2007. I missed the show- I can’t remember why. I was out of town a lot in 2007/08.

The Queers- Corvallis, OR 3/14/94 xfer from 1st gen soundboard cassette Lookout Records Punk

Big thank to Tim Davenport for sending his cassettes over for digitizing. This one was very clean, but vocal heavy and little to no bass in the mix. I did what I could in Izotope to fix it up.

The Queers- The Whole, Minneapolis Mn 4/16/93 xfer low gen audio audience rec Lookout Records Punk

I’ve started to get into a rhythm of posting one audio per day during the week, and 1 video on the weekend days. That’s about all the work I can handle at this point.
Here is a short set by The Queers from Jason Ross’ collection. Jason was the punk tape trading king of the midwest, so this has got to be pretty low gen- probably 1st gen.
Sounds like a pro walkman job- maybe a D3 or D6. Decent recordings of the band from this long ago are scarce.
