Notes[edit | edit source]

Banter[edit | edit source]

Iha: Hey, thanks a lot. Thank you.
BC: Good evening. Thank you very much for coming.
Hello Kitty Kat
> Bury Me
Iha: Hey, thanks. Thank you very much. Thank you very much, uh, let me check my duct tape. Chicago, thank you, Chicago.
> Rocket
> Tristessa
Window Paine
> I Am One
Iha: Thank you very much. This next song is from a Seattle movie about tennis.
BC: Thank you, I didn't know anybody knew that song. We don't take requests, I’m sorry. Do you want that Holiday Inn? This here's called Ode to a Possum.
(Siva intro begins)
BC: Blast off, my fine friend.
(BC after guitar solo, before bridge: Yeah. Life’s a drag. Life’s a whore. And I’m both. Please, be peaceful and fun loving children. Bond with your neighbor, love your neighbor, even though you don’t like him. Naw, you gotta get your own show, okay? Then you can say anything you want. (singing) All this pain smothers me....)
> Slunk
Iha: Thank you.
BC: We're so glad you came to the show. As you know, um, we don't play a lot of Chicago shows. (some light booing) As –- hey man...we want it to be fun, you know, and not the same shit every time. (crowd cheers) Heh heh, where were you four years ago? Yeah, heh, heh heh, sorry for those of you who were here. (a few crowd shouts about a new album) The new album's coming out next year. Uh, heh, well, I have too many problems and...not enough time. I don't have a guitar. So...this is a romantic interlude.
Country Death Song (tease)
BC: Like to sing a song for you. Maestro? This is our very own special song. Now this -- ah, shut up. (tease ends) Alright, this is a song, it'll be on the next album and it's called Hummer.
> Offer Up
(BC about a minute in: Don’t worry, you don’t know it. This is where we do our suicide “no one knows these songs” run. Well, you’re probably sick of the old ones anyway.)
> Silverfuck
BC: Thank you for putting up with me and my band. Thank you for living! Thank you for loving! Thank you for all those little things that you do! Thank you for all the things that you don’t do! Thank you for nothing, thank you for everything.
[encore break]
Iha: Thank you. We'd now like to play part of our new concept album, The Minstrels Are Dancing with the Dwarves.
Daydream (with Eric Remschneider)
BC: Here's another song you don't know.
Guy in crowd: Freebird!
BC: No. We can't play the music that you masturbate to, it's against our rules. (tuning guitar) This is my bad guitar. (more tuning) Very bad guitar. Excuse me.
Multiple crowd members: Rhinoceros!
Iha: Oh, thank you, you’re very moderate.
BC: We'd play you the cow song but you already heard it.
Iha: Hey, thanks, thanks a lot.
