BC: [cuts in] ...fucking show over a tune. So, we’ll try not to suck too hard.
Jimmy: Alright, uh, listen, listen, listen. Listen, okay, let’s have fun.
BC: Won’t that be fun?
Guy in crowd: I Am One!
BC: I am what?
Bury Me
Window Paine
Iha: Hey, thanks a lot.
Bye June
BC: [cuts in] ...feel better, we don't hate any particular music style, we hate them all. Down with rock and heavy metal and...psychedelic and punk and funk and all that bullshit. It's not about music anymore. No, it's not about money obviously. We wouldn't be here if it had to do with money, right? Woulda charged you a lot more money, right?
Crowd: Yeah!
BC: Yeah. Don't talk to me about fuckin' money. Hey man, you'll suck the dick of the devil someday too. You've seen it all, so why are you here? It's about feeling something, maybe a little pain, maybe a little pleasure, it's not about music anymore. It's about getting fucked up is what it's about.
Jimmy: D’arcy, back in.
Iha: Thank you very much. We're so incredibly slow tonight, I know. We're tryin’ to be quicker.
BC: I'll tell Dave Navarro you all said hi. Is that Jane's Addiction opening the show tonight? Oh.
Kill Your Parents
> Siva
BC: Fuck yeah.
Iha: Hey, thanks, man. (mic feedback) I’m havin’ a feedback day.
D’arcy: (off mic) [unintelligible word] problem? Oh no, it’s right here.
Iha: I know it wasn’t humming.
BC: Seeing as this is a very, like, intimate.... We’ll just continue gonna play songs until you all leave. ‘Cause this isn’t –- it no longer matters if there's an intensity ‘cause...and there is.
BC: Here's a love song.
> I Am One
Iha: Yeah.
BC: So that a new [unintelligible word] gone again.
