Triphammer - Portland, OR 4/4/98

From the same show as the XCLEARX set that I uploaded a little while back, here's Triphammer playing the Stage 4 Theater in Portland, OR on 4/4/98.  I only got to see them twice, but they were always great, and the singer's nose gushed blood from the time he opened his mouth to scream at both shows.

Thanks for posting this video, that was our first out of state show... Brings up some old ghosts... I played in that band for five years, and I'm glad someone outside Utah remembers us... The reunion show was awesome/frightening/sad... None of us had played together in about fifteen years, and I knew it would be our last time onstage as triphammer... Thanks for remembering us....

Whoa. Anyone remember Pascal's Wager? From Roseburg. I lived with a few of those guys when they moved to Seattle for college, and just hung out with their drummer today (rarely see him, we both live in SF). Would love to track down any recordings - I remember having a cassette of theirs that was good - very 400-years ish.

Matt - I still have that tape, and have been meaning to rip it for quite a while now. I had a love/hate with those guys. They were super nice, but I always hated them for being able to book the Endeavor/Harvest show in Roseburg, and none of us in Portland found out about it until after it happened. Neither band ever toured back through the area.
