Tonight, Tonight (acoustic)
In the Arms of Sleep (acoustic)
Cupid de Locke (acoustic)
BC: Thanks a lot. You are very nice and hi, thank you.
Thirty-three (acoustic)
Today (acoustic)
BC: Is there a problem?
Iha: Is everyone okay? Cool, heh heh.
Soma (acoustic)
BC: Are pajamas hot?
Iha: These pants are very hot.
BC: H-O-T-T?
Iha: Yep.
BC: Thanks so much for coming. We really appreciate it. Um, it's been pretty crazy wacky since we got here and um, we're glad you're here to (exaggerated Cuban accent) rock and roll with us. (normal) Like to play you a little metal song that James wrote, we felt it was a little too heavy at first for the band, but then we kinda got used to it. It's a little song called Take Me Down to the Metal Shop.
Take Me Down (acoustic)
Iha: Thanks.
Fight Fire with Fire (tease - Billy (poorly) plays the intro)
BC: That's Metallica.
Iha: That’s pretty.
Ain’t Talkin’ ‘bout Love (tease - Billy plays main riff twice)
> Rocket
BC: We'd like to say a special Smashing Pumpkins hello to our friends up in the balcony, hi.
Iha: [unintelligible]
BC: We hope you enjoy the much as these people are going to.
Iha: [unintelligible]
BC: Of course, from the balcony you can't see all the plastic surgery that we've had, but um, don't say anything. Woo, plastic surgery, heh heh, woo.
Iha: Yes, yes.
BC: Ah, we're just winging it now, D'arcy.
BC: Thanks.
Iha: Thank you.

D’arcy: Thank you.
[encore break]
BC: Do you need some water down there?
Iha: Just don't throw it back. (off mic) Whoa!
BC: You know--you know it's coming right back up too. (faux friendly) Yeah, we could play I Am One, couldn't we, James?--(normal) NO!
Iha: Heh. Not. Don't worry, any second we'll be rocking.
[encore break]
Iha: Thank you.
BC: Thanks a lot. We haven't been very talkative tonight but we'd like to thank you coming--for coming, it's been a really cool show. You people totally rock, thanks a lot. Does “totally rock” translate to Californian?--I don't know. You were very rad, dude.
Iha: Okay, now let’s...(Jimmy starts drums)...go.

BC: She's married though.
D’arcy: Hey, that’s okay.
BC: Never stopped you before though, huh? Woo!--rock and roll, live and in the flesh, thank you very much. We love you, goodnight, god bless you.
D’arcy: Thank you, have a good night.
BC: We promise we won't play any more songs, god bless you, goodnight, thank you. Thanks for coming. Goodnight to the balcony.
