2022 Live Performances


I seriously underestimated the time it would take me to collate/share my 2022 offerings, not sure what I was thinking when I said these would be up by January 2023...try December 2023.

Maybe 2023 will be done by January 2024.  Most likely not. 

In reverse order...recorded with Zoom H1n unless indicated otherwise.  Unfortunately, while I still have the unit, one of the X-Y mics died so I can now only use it with external mics.  The Tascam will have to step into the breach there.

2021 Live Performances


Obviously, the first half of 2021 was very, very quiet while the world was still trying to recover from lockdown.  But then, starting in late June with outdoors shows, and gradually shifting back into normal, the pace of live performance attendance really started to pick up.
This was mostly a new set of bands, a veritable who's who of SF "fog pop".   And some opportunities missed, it wouldn't be until the middle of 2022 until I managed a successful capture of The Reds Pinks & Purples.

2022 and beyond will get their own post at some point, will try to get this done by late January 2023.

I likely won't keep this channel updated regularly beyond this post, beyond yearly recaps, and archaeological digs.

New posts appear on Facebook and Tumblr, which also mirrors to Twitter. 

New videos appear on Youtube.  Note that because of the copyright strike system, I'm fairly judicious of what I choose to upload, so many links are unlisted and just referenced above.

Twitter and Instagram may have links as well, which may or may not vary slightly.

Here's a linktr.ee.

Here's a listing of worthwhile bands "from here" to get you started, which I recorded over the past year that I've started sharing my recordings publicly over YT or since 2017, via pCloud fileshares.  I figured out that the idea was to get them heard, rather than worry about the sanctity of the format chosen, but for some of the older ones, you're always free to request the lossless versions, which I can make available...within reason....

I also have various shows from the past via various archives (my own and others) shared on my channel, but that's been a lot more scattershot, so it should be covered in a different post, perhaps when the next "blast from the past" is shared.  Only if there were five of me...

This listing is in reverse chronological order.

In support of W.A.M. (Women's Audio Mission), which strives to promote the advancement of women in music production and the recording arts, visit their website at http://www.womensaudiomission.org/ to learn more.

Please also support the group by checking out some tunes at http://manesf.bandcamp.com

My Facebook page also has YouTube links to the Sirena Victima and Silver Shadows sets, who also performed.

There's simply a plethora amazing female-fronted groups plying their trade in SF/Oakland, as Women's Audio Mission proves, not to mention other bands like Cruel Summer, Quaaludes, and The World...none of whom sound alike...but this Silver Shadows video of one of my fave tunes of theirs (called "Faultlines") was a high point. Enjoy!
