Pink Elephants on Parade Intro
BC: Thank you.
> Tristessa
(Jimmy and D’arcy begin Window Paine)
BC: D'arcy loves all of you.
Window Paine
Bury Me
BC: Hello! Welcome to outer space. The new frontier. A place to let your hair down. The place to jump up and down
Iha: Or take your hair up.
BC: James is gonna now play a solo: Paginini's 6th Movement.
(guitar noises from Iha)
Kill Your Parents
BC: 5,4,3,2,1, blast off. (feedback where he would usually start Siva) And my amp lids just blew up. This happens a lot, see?
Iha: And now that it is happening...we will perform--
BC: Don't buy Marshall.
Country Death Song (tease)
Iha: [several unintelligible sentences].
(tease ends)
We Will Rock You (tease)
BC: (singing) We will, we will rock you. (guitar feedback fades in) (speaking) Ah, I hear that beautiful sound now, just a moment. Oh yeah, as I was saying: blast off.
Iha: [unintelligible].
> I Am One
[encore break]
BC: You sound like an audience who’s not sure whether they want an encore. (crowd cheers) We're unpretentious Midwestern folk, you know?
D’arcy: I've just been reminded, we almost forgot to say happy fucking Valentine’s Day.
BC: Here's a song called Daydream.
Iha: [unintelligible].
BC: Faster, harder, baby...I love you so much. We will now attempt to soothe your savage beast souls. And you're gonna stage dive, get some fuckin' height, you know? You know? Don't fuckin’ just fall in if you're gonna take the trouble to get up. Let's see some flying.
Iha: Why, what would Mark Arm say? ... Same [2-3 unintelligible words].
BC: Oh yeah...
Iha: Yeah yeah yeah yeah.
BC: ...I guess I should tell you I'm pregnant with Kurt's baby too, by the way. And we're gonna get married as soon as I get that divorce from that other guy in that other band.
Offer Up
BC: Alright, now it's time to show us the little devil in your heart.
