Shadow of a Doubt
Death to our friends
Kill Yr Idols
The Red and the Black
Joined by Mike Watt for encore.
Emmanuel Tremblay's cassette replay: "this is a rather cool and unusual
show for the band. thurston talks a lot and the medium audience
moves a lot. he prevents people from stage diving before the encore.
lee says in his journal that it was mostly high school people.
there's a lot of jam/tunings between songs and the performance
is a bit weak. thurston decides to add a new outro to 'death to
our friend' and the band can't fallow. kim vocals are rather harsh
on this tour and she adds some make people dance on 'secret girl'.
at the beginning of the show, thurston says they have whiskey
for everyone and that lee will play from the dressing room. he
makes some rhymes before 'expressway' and sings a bit of the
new rap song 'expressway to my head' . the real expressway
is introduced as 'i'm from nyc but i can't prove it'. they play again
a nice long version of this song which is unfortunately cut at
the end of side a. thurston talks for a while before starpower
introducing all band members on stage with some drum solos
expect kim, lee as 'they just suck'. mike watt talks before
'the red and the black' and says the song is about re-organizing
the bathroom. thurston finishes by saying he will go throw
water bottles on people in the parking lot."
