Here’s something interesting. Big thanks to Tood Pritchard who came over to the studio last December and pulled out a bunch of cassettes from Jason Ross’ collection that I have not started to list or digitize.
This appears to be Downfall’s first show- some of Lint’s between song banter makes it seem that way. I think this was an opening slot for Bad Religion.

Downfall includes Lint (Tim Armstrong) and Matt Freeman from Rancid and Operation Ivy. Dave Mello plays drums, also from Operation Ivy
