(rough tape, possible some stuff is wrong)
Iha: Why, thank you for having us. Thank you to all of you who said “I’ll come see you now” and I’m here and...let’s see some evil hands, can I get some evil hands? Heh heh! I see the [2-3 unintelligible words].
BC: Are you ready to play s -- no no no no, are you ready to go deep [unintelligible word]? What? Hey, I don’t know, man. (Jimmy starts Geek U.S.A.) Audio’s not my problem.
Iha: Heh heh, just a plea for security not to kill anyone tonight. (feedback intro to Bury Me begins) We don’t have a [1-2 unintelligible words], don't kill them.
Iha: Really, don’t hurt anyone, we all [1-2 unintelligible words] nice.
BC: Thank you for coming to the show. We don't care if you wanna stage dive but don't touch us.
BC: We have really horrible diseases and you don't want them.
Iha: Don't touch our bottoms, that’s all I heard.
BC: Yeah, don't touch our bums.
Today (abandoned quickly when Iha talks)
Iha: Again, we ask the security not to kill the fans. Please, they're our friends, heh heh. You’re not not a fish.
BC: First of all, don’t yell songs we already played, that shows your lack of fucking knowledge.
D’arcy: That's rule number one, man.
BC: Thank you.
Iha: You yell “two pints of lager”--
BC: [unintelligible word] it doesn’t seem likes to bother Chris. This is called Snail for anyone who’s taking notes.
Iha: This is the microcosm world we do not understand what we should in this day and age. Perhaps we should eat life and steal hatred--
BC: You don’t really know where to stop, James.
BC: [unintelligible word] leads at halftime.
Iha: I’m sorry. We are sorry.
BC: Alright. I know this ain’t the – wait, shhh, I know this ain’t the proper thing to do, but there there will be no more stage divers. Because it's obvious that the people who are stage diving don't give a fuck about us or our show or you. And I don’t kid you lot when I say, there's any more stage divers, we're just gonna quit until those people leave. And I don’t [2-3 unintelligible words] or criticize your stage diving, so...it’s just stupid. So.... What now? Hey, you wanna stagedive, you can be the one that stops the show and everybody’ll beat your fuckin' ass up.
Kill Your Parents
(BC at first pause: [unintelligible].)
Iha: Thank you again. This is a slow one.
BC: Heh! We don’t know those songs anymore. This is a ballad called Hello Kitty Kat.
Hello Kitty Kat
> I Am One
Iha: [unintelligible word]? Well, we uh...just gettin’ ready to play.
> BC: We’d like to play another song and send you on home.
