While the 2020 Covid-19 lockdown threw many musicians for a loop and reassessment while away from the rigors of the road, Kelley Stoltz managed to stay focused mixing and making music, and get multiple vinyl releases out, even with pressing plants backed up. One such release was his Agitated Records release “Ah! (etc)” which starts strong with track one Team Earth and then piles on Stoltz penchant for poppy post punk eighties influences heard developing on his past releases.
At the majestic Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, Stoltz recently highlighted tracks from the underrated “Ah! (etc)” album and here are two clips from that release I shot of the performance using about 5 cameras I snuck into the venue.
First up is the aforementioned Team Earth

The next song I captured from the set is the third tune on the “Ah! (etc)”album called Never Change Enough …
Kelley’s music is available from all the usual streaming and download sites, but if you want to buy physical copies direct from the musician, I can attest he is a prompt shipper! In the USA check out his bandcamp page at https://kelley.bandcamp.com/album/kelley-stoltz-ah-etc to order what’s in stock . UK/European buyers may wish to purchase his Ah! (etc) album from the Agitated Records bandcamp site at kelleystoltzagitated.bandcamp.com/album/ah-etc … and save on shipping, as they are based in UK.
