Date: Friday, November 18th, 1988
City: Huntington Beach, California, USA
Venue: Night Moves
'Cross the Breeze
I Love Her All The Time
I Wanna Be Yr Dog
I previously had a note that Mike Watt did a spiel overtop a tape of "Providence", but that isn't present on the recording.
Mark Arm, Matt Lukin, and Steve MacDonald sang on "I Wanna Be Yr Dog."
It sounds like Lee's set is missing "Kissability" after "Breeze", but there's
some stage talk and a tape cut and it's not clear whether they end up playing it or
skip straight to "Silver Rocket" -- which doesn't even feature the arpeggiated guitar
intro and just goes straight into the song (from a stick count).
[long tuning intro over tapes/noise]
L: "Are you ready? Are you ready?"
T: "We always bring our own PAs with us. Only the best!"
L: "Are you ready? 1 2 3 4!"
- Brother James
T: "Are you ready?"
T: "This next song is called 'The Wonder'. You ready? You ready? Kick it."
- The Wonder
- 'Cross the Breeze
T: "What?" [laughs] "Lee got the joke set list! Sucker...We got a fuckin' flipside in the front rink!" [general indiscernable stage/audience chatter]
L: "What is it?"
T: "I don't drink but I'm sure some of the audience does. I know it's not cool, but...do you want to drink some liquor? Hey..Steve..."
[there's a tape cut here, it's unclear whether 'Kissability' is performed]
- Silver Rocket [w/ radically different lyrics]
- Teenage Riot
L: "This is called 'Hey Joni'."
- Hey Joni
L: "This is called 'Eric's Trip'. It's about living in Texas in a movie theatre, and Mike Watt is sitting in the next seat, trying to talk to you while you're watching."
- Eric's Trip
- I Love Her All The Time
- Eliminator Jr
K: "The guy from Anarchy 6 .. Yo Steve!"
T: "Ladies and gentlemen, I'd like to introduce to the stage, Mark Arm of Mudhoney! Come up here you fucking asshole! Alright! This guy really smells! "
Mark or Matt: "Motherfucker oh yeah!"
T: "Ladies and gentlemen here's another faggot from the same band! Let's get happening!"
Mark Arm: "You know it babe!"
Matt Lukin: "Where's that fuckhead that ripped my shirt?"
T: "Yo man, these dudes are gonna sing with the chick! The chick! Kim! We need a bass player! Alright, all fuckin' right it's Steve fuckin' MacDonald from Redd fuckin' Kross! Oh fucking yeah!"
?: "How do you play [???]"
Matt: "Where's that cocksucker who tore my shirt? Fess up you fuckin' pussy! You took my beer and you stretched my shirt, you cocksucker!"
T: "You got your sound?"
- I Wanna Be Your Dog [insane version w/ everybody chanting as song melts down]
