One last reminder, that if holiday recreation isn't sending you down the highway this afternoon, head out to the free show at Serra Bowl tonight. It's your last chance to see Sacramento's Mayyors cause a raucous in the Bay Area.

About the bands:

Sacramento's Mayyors are calling it quits, and the Serra Bowl show is their second-to-last show ever and final Bay Area performance. The band is known for a singularly intense brand of noise punk that amounts to some insane live shows. "[A]ggro, volatile, and missing a chromosome...Assaulting guitars and vox backed by jumping drums hooked the crowd, and soon everyone was sloshing around in a chummy, punch-you-in-the-face sort of manner." (WFMU Beware of the Blog) "Mayyors hit the stage and were everything I had anticipated. Short. Sharp. Swirling. Punishing. Brilliant...Now fast forward to this morning and I get an email from Mayyors' 'singer' John Pritchard who stated that the band was about to play their final four shows ever as a band. [I]f you live in Northern California or Portland, Oregon, you really have no reason to NOT go see them perform before they pack up." (Chunklet)

Local hero Ty Segall's latest album, Melted, is his best work yet, showcasing both his raw rock and roll sensibility and some unbelievably catchy melodies. "You're not going to hear many rock records that'll kick you square in the pants quite like this one this year, provided Segall doesn't up and crank another one out by December; the kid's got heart, brains, and quite an ear for a hook, and he throws himself body and soul into these tunes. Segall makes quite an impression in half an hour's time, and Melted's the best foot he's put forward yet." (Pitchfork) "On the whole, this is the best album yet from Ty Segall, as joy-ride thrilling as the debut, as clearly delivered as Lemons, but with stronger, more varied writing." (Dusted Magazine)
