Banter[edit | edit source]

D’arcy: Good evening.
Iha: If you're gonna say boo...please, everyone, do not say boo. Why are you shouting boo? We will have you ejected.
Tonight, Tonight (acoustic)
BC: Thank you.
In the Arms of Sleep (acoustic)
Iha: Thank you. I hope we're not too mellow for you tonight.
D’arcy: This is the quiet, sleepy set.
Iha: We're very sad.
D’arcy: No, sleepy.
Iha: I know, I know, I'm in my pajamas but I'm still rocking for you. Just hang on, just--we'll rock you but just, it’s kind of late.
D’arcy: We'll rock later.
Iha: You know, you just gotta wait four minutes.
Cupid de Locke (acoustic)
Thirty-three (acoustic)
BC: Alright, so my voice is a little hoarsey horsey. From all that rock and roll singing, so we need a little help on this one. I thinks you know the words.
Iha: (crazy voice) I think you know this next song!
Today (acoustic)
BC: Thanks a lot. Thank you.
Lily (acoustic)
BC: Actually uh, that was originally about the cat, that song. No, I'm serious. We have a cat named Lily. I can’t--I don't think I could sing to Daryl, but Lily worked out alright. (singing) Daryl, my one and Daryl.
Iha: Doesn't quite rhyme, that's true.
BC: No, it would have been a different song, probably like uh, like this song.
Iha: Heh heh.
BC: Bad segue number one.
Iha: That was kinda smooth, good [unintelligible word].
Take Me Down (acoustic)
Iha: Thanks.
BC: Thanks for the flower. 'Course I'm allergic to them but thanks anyway. I'm allergic to money, uh, flowers, grass, love, desire, I've taken a couple of those. Never seem to be allergic to any drugs though.
> Rocket
BC: Thank you so much.
Galapogos (abandoned after 5 seconds)
BC: No, my guitar’s too out of tune, fuck.
Guy in crowd: Blame your roadie!
BC: Normally we’d just play. No, you deserve it in tune. Kinda special, this night only.
Iha: Thanks.
[set break]
Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness Intro
> Where Boys Fear to Tread
> Zero
Fuck You
To Forgive
BC: Hi. How are you? I am fine, thanks, James, how are you?
Iha: You know, I'm feeling kind of crazy, heh.
BC: You're not feelin’ crazy?
Iha: No, I am, I am, I am feeling crazy.
D’arcy: Maybe that's 'cause you are.
Bullet with Butterfly Wings
Thru the Eyes of Ruby
BC: Like to just take this time to say thank you for being so patient, we're really enjoying playing these shows. It’s a lotta--a lot of material we didn't really even figure we were gonna play live, so it's been kind of interesting to try and play it and we thank you for your support, it's been amazing. Like to play another seven minute song...that goes kinda like...this. (begins guitar for song) This is Porcelina, by the way. For those of you who haven't made it past Here Is No Why.
Porcelina of the Vast Oceans
BC: (after ending the feedback coming out of Porcelina) Ah, shit. We'll start from dead silence, how 'bout that? Ready Jimmy? Ready James? Darce? Ready? From the beginning. I just wanna be in tune for this one.
BC: Thanks. So what do you wanna hear?
Iha: What?
> Cherub Rock
BC: Thank you, good night. You fuckin' rock!
[encore break]
D’arcy: Hey, how is everybody?
BC: Hey, I wanna say hi to you people up there in the balcony, man.
D’arcy: Oh yeah, I think I just noticed you the last song when they turned the lights on, heh heh heh.
BC: Wait, you people over there are leaving? We know you got in for free, so.... We have to give you a special wave...
Iha: Don’t but shhh.
BC: ...the free wave.
Iha: What? You got it?
BC: You got it, man!
Iha: I know. Just kidding.
BC: After you, Jimmy.
We Only Come Out at Night
Geek U.S.A.
BC: Thank you.
[encore break]
Iha: Thank you very much. You've been super cool and we're gonna play another cyber-metal song. Hope you like it and uh, here we go.
Zero (tease)
Where Boys Fear to Tread (tease)
Iha: We're gonna release an acoustic medley of all our cyber-metal songs.
unknown (tease)
Here Is No Why (tease)
Iha: Done the clean, smooth way, the way you like it. I know you're down with that fuckin' shit.
BC: (gruff) Thank you. (normal) We'd like to play one more song and then everybody go home and get a good night's sleep. 'Cause we'll be out partying...on the hot Toronto streets. 'Cause the streets are hot tonight, Jimmy.
Iha: It's feedin’ back.
Farewell and Goodnight
(below is all over piano outro)
Jimmy: Thank you, thank you.
BC: Goodnight, you guys have been...
D’arcy: Thank you.
BC: ...great.
Iha: Goodnight.
BC: Thank you so much. We’ll see you when we come back in the summer. Bye.
