Here’s Victims Family’s opening set for the Mr. Bungle show. I got word that I got a ticket a few hours before the show, and after some back and forth with security, I made it into the venue about 10min before VF started playing. It was really strange to see VF play in such a large venue. I am seen them many (20?) times in small clubs.

I had tickets to another show on this night (Possessed) but after seeing VF, Nasalrod and Freak Accident the night before in Sac, I blew off the death metal to see them again.
When we got to the venue, we could hear Ralph singing as we walked up. Freak Accident opened the show! Between their early start and some difficulty getting to the balcony to film, I completely missed the set. Sorry Ralph.
VF were great but a little sloppier than usual. Not a complaint- it was nice to see them having fun up there. I really appreciate these shows- with all of the members’ competing priorities, a VF show is a rarity.

Victim’s Family had a big show/party for their 30th anniversary. It was at Phoenix Theater in Petaluma- I had never been there before. Think of it as a bigger, dirtier Gilman in a theater. Before the show, they took setlist requests over the web. The set is heavy on the old stuff as a result. Cameras were HFG30 (operated by me), HFG10 (tripod on balcony), HF200 (Tripod behind soundboard on the floor). Sound is courtesy of Vince Scalese- it is a SBD/Neumann mic matrix. Mixing/authoring done by Bong and Agelos. Thanks all!
This is part 1 only- you can find the rest of the show on Youtube
Well, this is odd. I don’t recall getting to this show late, but this video cuts in and it seems obvious that I did. It seems to be about half the set. I think this is the only one of my VF Cattle Club videos that was not edited with Jerry’s camera by Jim McLain. Jim, is there Jerry footage of this show? Taped with the Aiwa CV80 and Sony ECM909 Mic.
This one is a bit of a long story. TL/DR version: Part 1 is today, full audio show is tomorrow, part 2 of video is Monday. Video will not be the full show. Audio/video synch starts at about 30 seconds in, and seems to align better after a short while
When I had the ancient Aiwa CV-80 camera from 1988-1992, I used an external microphone so the audio would be decent quality. It was a Sony ECM-909 mic, which required it to be plugged into the camera AND powered on. The old cameras had no audio levels, so if you screwed up and left it unplugged or forgot to power it on, you got silent video and did not realize until the show was over. My 2 biggest screwups were this show (the best show I have ever seen VF play) and Pavement at the Kennel Club in May of 1992. No audio has ever surfaced of the Pavement, but I did tape a nice soundboard of this show.
Massive thanks to Jesse Davis for synching the first 16min of SILENT footage of the show to the soundboard recording. Not easy. It falls out of synch after that, so 17min-45ish min of the set’s video won’t be posted. The final 25ish min will (hopefully) be posted Monday, if pluraleyes can make it happen.
Amazing set with brand new “White Bread Blues” songs, including an instrumental version of “Anti satan song for mom”!

So here is the VF full show audio I promised. This was probably the best VF show I had ever seen. Amazing set with brand new “White Bread Blues” songs, including an instrumental version of “Anti satan song for mom”!
PS: There were shockingly few VF images on the internets. I had to chop this one from my Gilman flyer archive for a different show :-O

Here is the end of the show that I had promised earlier in the week. So, in summary, you get:
1st 15min of set of what was silent video synched with soundboard audio (posted Sunday)
Entire show, audio only (posted.. tuesday?)
and now this- final 20-25min. This part is my favorite part of the show. First George Benson, then Friends with a broken bass string which turns into a dub version… then a super long break where Ralph entertains us all by doing metal screams & guitar that sounds exactly like the scream… then onto “anti satan song for mom” with no vocals. Even though it was midnight and they had to dick around with the bass guitar no one left.
