Strange night. This was a local guy’s “birthday bash” with 5 local bands and then The Skull. The show started late, and ran later as the night went on. Eric Wagner, who is the mellowest guy in the world was even visibly irritated about it. They did not start their set until 1am, ended at . I was hurting the next day- my daughter woke me up at 7 or so. That was a long drive back to Sacramento. Shot with the HFM30.

I am part of a northwest music facebook group, and I heard that Bill Rieflin passed away. I did not know who he was, so I looked him up… WOW. He was not only the drummer for many of my favorite bands (he was in SO MANY BANDS), but he was unbelievably talented. I tend to focus on drums a lot when listening to music, which is probably due to my cousin Tony Schwartz being a drummer in my formative years. I did not even realize that he was the drummer in this incarnation of The Swans that I saw until I looked up the band member timeline… and I recall that the drummer kicked ass. So this was at the Roxy, who were a complete pain in the ass about taping. I had to smuggle the gear into the club, and then hide the DAT deck in my pocket (mics on eyeglasses). I set the levels at a “reasonable level” (levels used for Foo Fighters a couple weeks earlier at the same club… I check the deck about 15min in and the levels were PEGGED! Shit. In my haste to change levels without being seen, I unplug the mics. So I lose about 1-2min of the show. 国产免费毛片在线观看So in summary, it was f*cking LOUD, is not great for the 1st 15min or so.
