Video: Blitzen Trapper @ Independent, SF

atomjack about 10 years ago

I shot video of two songs, Furr and Wild Mountain Nation, at the show at The Independent in San Francisco, last night. I'm pretty happy with them. The video came from my Canon SD800IS digital still camera, and the audio is from a soundboard/audience mix I did. Much thanks to Matt and the band for allowing the soundboard mix, it sure did help.

I added both videos to the facebook group, and you can also watch them on youtube here (although I recommend viewing on facebook as the video is slightly larger than on youtube):

My audio recording of the entire show turned out real well, and I'll be happy to share it with whoever wants it. I'm gonna talk to Matt about perhaps getting BT added as a taper friendly band to the Internet Archive's Live Music Archive. I also recorded their show at Bottom of the Hill earlier this year, but haven't done anything with it yet. I plan to work on that tomorrow, plus I shot video of two songs (one of which was devil's a-go-go), which I will put up tomorrow as well. Keep an eye on the facebook group tomorrow :)

Hope ya'all enjoy.

Oooh, I'd love to see BT on the archive!
Sounds like it was a good show, that's a pretty fab setlist. I'd love to hear it!

I'm digging this video and second the motion for getting them on the Archive. I'm always directing people there to discover bands, I'd love BT up there and I'd love to have some live recordings. Many thanks for the video.

Agreed, it would be fantastic to have some shows up on Archive!

Hey atomjack, I'd be stoked to have a recording of my first ever BT show. It was a fantastic night! I have plenty to trade if you want to do that

Atomjack, throw that recording up! My 6yr old needs a BT fix!

FYI for everyone, Atomjack has been hanging out in Thailand for the last couple months, hence the lack of upload. He's a taping fiend though (in a good way), so I'm sure he'll get around to it when he gets back.

Atomjack back yet?

Hmmm, given that his Facebook picture is currently a shot of him in the jungle with a monkey on his shoulder, I'm gonna guess no. ;) I told him we're all clamoring for him though.

PS: I want a monkey on my shoulder!

As long as it's not on your back!
