Malty goodness (FLACs in zipfile)
The Malted Ones were supposed to play last, I believe (could be wrong!) but Surf Club let them go on before...all throughout, the band wasn't sure how much time they had; thus the fairly unique running order. All things considered, the recording came out better than I could have ever hoped, considering the lack of a PA. I can't think of a better place to have caught them play, the background of arcade and vending machines is just so perfect for their gestalt. It's just too fucking bad Serra Bowl is no more. And the shouts between songs were hilarious. "Jerry!"
As I write this, they're be opening for fabled punk group The Dead Milkmen at Slim's. The show is sold out, so I'm thrilled they get a chance to impress people who haven't heard of them, even though I won't be able to make it since I was asleep at the wheel.
More pictures from their performance and the other groups can be found in my Flickr album. I brought the Canon with me, so at least the photos are somewhat decent.
I'll leave you with a video of 'Nauseous' shot by Megan Dabkowski:
