Rotaryfest Second Stage action down at Clergue Park, as YouTube user (and frequent local concert filmer) Christopher Paci was on hand to get videos of bands at the returning all-original stage! Like myself, he was in attendance for the last four bands only (so he didn't film Aldous, The Wild Iris, and The Boot Hill Crooners), while there's no included videos from DJ Seith and/or Conika's mini-sets either. From Chris' videos, we'll start with headliners Gnaeus, with his clips of the risding post-punk quartet being of their songs "Fire" and, as embedded below, "When You're Gone". Solid audio quality compared to the often scratchy audio from Chris' Kewadin videos, and while he wasn't up close to the stage, the angle's good of the VM Radio Battle winners in action! A little jittery, but nothing unmanageable. Give Gnaeus' Rotaryfest videos a look above & below!
Chris also filmed two videos of local alternative/grunge trio The Pixo Control's co-headlining set, these being of their songs "Scratch" and, as embedded below, "Potpourri" (I believe. If I'm wrong, my apologies, but I don't have my picture of the setlist at hand.) Same quality and angle as the Gnaeus videos, so if you like The Pixo Control's own rising blend of hard rock, you'll like this footage as well! Strong stuff, so give their videos a look!
The other two new videos from Chris' channel are single videos, including this one of newer local hard rock/glam trio Caroline Divine, and while I don't have a finite song name here (possibly "Shotgun With The Devil"), Chris filmed it from a closer angle to the left of the stage, so we have some different angles of things! Nice quality look at this upstart young trio, so check out their Rotaryfest video below!
Finally, Chris got a video of local pop punk quartet Stereo North playing their original "Heart Collider", which we also filmed for the SMS, but Chris' angle is much better, at the same close spot as the Caroline Divine video, more or less. Nice original that shows the guys' growth and potential, so give it a look below, and stay tuned for more Rotaryfest fallout next week!
That's likely all for today, but stay tuned for this month's Saultites In Out Of Town Bands Profile TOMORROW, I hope! Thanks everyone!
