intro piece (2:17)
10 tracks, 39:58
Excellent band fronted by Tricia Kanne (vox/keyboard/guitar), with Matthew Swanson (keys/guitar), Nick Forte (bass), Ross Grant (guitars), and Lauren Grubb (drums). Lauren would later pound the skins for a bit for Topographies. "Like I Do" is as terrific now as it was then.
Normally, I don't redo my FLACs for such old shows, but I noticed that the original set had final track "The Way You Are" cut at the 3:22 point. I checked my original master WAVs and that was complete, so I went ahead and grafted the last minute or so from that onto the file, and while I was at it, I cleaned up some of the handling noise (decrackle filter plus channel cloning on the high frequencies), limited some of the loud clapping and whooping (mostly from yours truly), and applied automatic phase correction.

From San Francisco's Outer Richmond district, the Botticellis love to make delicate pop music and love to surf. Members Burton Li, Blythe Foster and Alexi Glickman swung by on April 25, 2008, to chat with San Jose Mercury News music writer Shay Quillen and perform "Flashlight" and "Up Against the Glass" from their debut CD, plus the previously unreleased "Lucy Lucia."
