The July 23, 1991 performance is notable as being the show during which future Smashing Pumpkins bassist Melissa Auf der Maur first met and befriended Billy Corgan.

During the performance, Auf der Maur's roommate heckled the band between songs and threw a beer bottle onstage while the band was performing, leading to "a strangling fist fight" between him and Corgan.[1] Auf der Maur explained:

The bottle throwing incident was later mentioned during banter of the May 13, 2000 performance.
