I recently got together with my old friend Adam to hang out for a few with our kids, and he handed me a stack of late 90s Portland videos that I didn't already have.  Virtually any hardcore video you see from Portland between 1997 and 1999 was filmed by him.
Let's start with Trial and Avail at Stage 4 Theater on May 16th, 1998.  I have no memory of the opening bands, but this show was pretty nuts during both Trial's and Avail's sets.

By now, I'm sure just about everyone has heard the Walter Sings The Hits version of Start Today, in which Walter Schreifles laid out some vocal tracks for Civ to get familiar with before he was to go in and track vocals himself.  The rest of the story goes that Civ recorded this vocal track while Walter was on tour in Europe with Youth Of Today.  Upon his return, Walter wasn't super into this more melodic take on the vocals, so Civ re-recorded them.

I worked with this as much as I could, but this rip clearly came from a 30th generation cassette, so don't expect to be bowled over by the sound quality, but it's still very listenable.
