Back in the early ‘00s, I purchased a MiniDV recorder and set out to record as many concerts as possible. The audio and video quality isn’t the greatest — some of the videos are shaky because I recorded them in the middle of the concert venue without a tripod or microphone — but the nostalgia factor is off the charts.
I don’t remember when, exactly, I recorded this Starflyer 59 show at Omaha’s Sokol Underground — which was where I saw countless shows during the early-to-mid ‘00s — but I’m pretty sure it was during the tour for 2003’s Old album due to the band’s line-up (Jason Martin, Jeff Cloud, Richard Swift, and Frank Lenz).
