Major Jones @ Roscoe’s BBQ

A friend was telling me that I would like Major Jones after happening upon them at Roscoe’s BBQ in Phoenix (between Ashland and Medford) one evening. So last night we headed up old Highway 99 to check them out. By the time they played Black Sabbath’s “Fairies Wear Boots” (about their fourth or fifth song of their nearly three hour set) I realized I had a new favorite local band to follow. Their original songs sounded great, and they covered Robin Trower, The Ramones, Cliff Burton-era Metallica (twice), Radiohead, AC/DC, and Motorhead.

I had given up hope of recording video with a DSLR when the results from my D7000 were so underwhelming. I heard bad things about the audio with the D600 so I hadn’t even bothered to try. However, last night, just for kicks since I could set my camera on a table, I tried taking a couple of short video clips with the default settings and no external mic. The results came out better than my D7000 with an external mic! So now I have to consider actually trying to take decent videos with my Nikon D600 using something better than the default settings and with an external microphone.
