Strange Party- The Stag, Woodland Ca. 11/11/17 Multicam with Rode Audio Sacramento Horror Punk

Thanks to my friend Agelos for helping with a bunch of multicamera edits of our amazing local bands. I don’t think it is a secret that The Strange Party were one of my favorites. Here’s yet another video of them- this one from the same show as the Red Pills that I posted the other day.
I screwed up and let my battery die so the audio is cut between the “good mic” and the stock mic on the other camera. Thanks to Agelos for the audio splice work!

The Strange Party- The Stag Bar, Woodland Ca. 5/12/17 Part 1 Canon HFG30 Rode VPS nic

After the captain 9’s set, I hit I-5 and got to the STrange Party show just in time. The Stag is such a unique venue. It does not have your usual rock crowd. Everyone in town shows up. This time around, I saw 2 bikers, an elderly woman (70+?), and a bunch of locals at the bar. Always a unique vibe at the stag. So I really wanted to catch Strange Party with Lys on drums, so I was glad this show was a late one. What a set. With the addition of the new bass player, Justin has switched to guitar which has taken the band to a whole new level.

The Strange Party- The Stag, Woodland Ca. 10/28/16 Pt. 1

After the Drowning Adam show, I took off and headed to Woodland to see one of my favorite local bands, The Strange Party. I had never been to the stag and wow, what a place. It was “Dead Guy Ale” promotion night where you could get refills for $3 and people were extremely drunk. The place is about 100 feet long and 15 feet wide, so you got to know your neighbors well. Also had a fun discussion with Cory about the old metal days. I guess he now knows better than to start a conversation about that! Ha ha. Strange Party sounded great and they are going into the studio today to record a proper album at Earthtone. Did you hear that, Matt Bennett?

Cro-mags: One Voice Fest, Plainfield Station, Woodland Ca. 10/5/13 Digital Audio Master DPA4061 Mics

Good news regarding yesterday’s video- Jakobe from the Deathryders and Matt from the Cafe have given us multitrack stubs to mix… so you will be getting a MUCH better sounding video soon! Thanks guys!
In keeping with the “I can’t believe I screwed up the video” theme, here is one of my greatest video f*ckups of all time. The band got to the fest super late- well after their posted start time. As they were scrambling to get set up, I asked if I could video and they gave me the OK. I did a 1 camera from the audience and it looked amazing. I was going to have it synched with this audio source, when I accidentally deleted it from the hard drive and the memory card and I could not recover it. So we only have audio. Sounds really good- enjoy.
This kind of crap never happened in the analog days. Grr.

Avengers- Plainfield Station, Woodland Ca. 8/13/06 xfer from DV Master Enahcned w DAT Audio Punk

This was my first time to this venue. I drove on the backroads of woodland for what seemed like forever in the dark and you come up on one small building among the ag fields. What a bizarre but cool place to have a venue/show. I have not heard of any shows there for a long time- does anyone know if they still have them?
This was also my first time seeing the Avengers. I had been a fan for many years, but missed the Scavengers gilman show in 99. I was too young to see them the first time around.
My memory is playing tricks on me- I thought that I had been on the left side of the venue but this looks like I filmed it dead center. The DAT audio sounds really nice after a few minutes. Good main set, and then the band gets called back for an unexpected 10min encore. Good stuff.
