Bootleg: Bars of Gold - Live Bootleg 3.21.09 (The First Show)

I just got back from Fest in Gainesville and it was by far one of the best weekends of my life. One of the bands I only got to somewhat see at Fest was Bars of Gold. How did I somewhat see a band? I was half passed out due to exhaustion during their set. Bars of Gold feature the singer and drummer of a band I miss dearly - Bear Vs. Shark. Those looking toward Bars of Gold for the manic energy or startling originality of BvS might be a bit disappointed but that isn't to say the two bands don't have their similarities. Yet, it is hard to deny that Bars of Gold have their own unique sound and aren't enjoyable in their own right. Anyways, the band has a bootleg of their very first show so I thought I'd share it in case there is any BvS fans out there that didn't know about them or anyone just looking for some good new music, they recently put out a 12" so you all should check it out. The sound quality here is far from the greatest but I tried to do some minor touch ups and it should give you an idea of what the band is about:
