Banter[edit | edit source]
Iha: What's up?
D’arcy: Good evening.
BC: Hello. Amp shit’s never.... Well, alright. I can never get this fuckin’ thing working!
Tonight, Tonight (acoustic)
BC: Thanks, we are the Smashing Pumpkins. Happy to be so. Ready there, wild man? Thanks for comin'.
In the Arms of Sleep (acoustic)
BC: Are you? So you're the lucky fuckers who got in, huh?
Cupid de Locke (acoustic)
BC: Thanks a lot. (Billy is doodling on his 12-string) Hindu breakdown.
BC: (deep voice) Thank you.
Guy in crowd: Good shit, Billy!
BC: Thank you. Heh, insert funny joke here?
Iha: Uhhh, heh heh. I don't have any.
BC: One day I ran into James walking on the street, he was buying some dog food and um, he looked kind of glum.
Iha: Why was that?
BC: Hahahaha. Because you couldn't find shoes big enough.
BC: You remember?
Iha: The next song we will play will be a winner, hahaha.
BC: That's kinda cocky! Can you guarantee that? What are you gonna do if it's not a winner?
Iha: I have no idea.
BC: You gonna give these people their money back? Heh, you ain't gettin' your money back, sorry. If you're disappointed, you get a free pick.
(BC during extended outro with Iha soloing: Take it, man.)
BC: Wow, that was great.
Iha: Right on.
BC: You pummeled them with blues.
Iha: Thank you.
BC: That was called Lily, in case you didn't know.
Take Me Down (acoustic)
BC: I'm not very good with stage banter as you well know, so...usually I say things that offend so I try not to talk. Thank you for coming, we appreciate it very much. Last time we were here, I believe we were completing the Lollapalooza tour.
Iha: That's correct.
BC: I seem to remember doing like a 50 minute jam at the end where all the bands came out, right, you remember?
BC: The Breeders and everybody came out, the Beasties, we all did a 50 minute jam, if you were there, I mean, you’ll remember it.
BC: Jimmy is right.
D’arcy: Thank you.
Iha: Thank you.
Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness Intro
> Where Boys Fear to Tread
D’arcy: That song--that song is called Fuck You and it's dedicated to Lisa Johnson.
Here Is No Why
BC: Thanks. We'd like to thank our opening band for being so cool. I mean, you're okay, I'm okay, he's okay, she's okay, it's just we're not okay. You okay? I'm okay, how 'bout you?
blues jam (14 seconds)
(BC: You know what kind of blues I got?)
> Born Under a Bad Sign (tease - about 6 notes)
> Bullet with Butterfly Wings
BC: That's right, you're all just rats in the cage. Just like us. Except our cages are bigger.
D’arcy: Don’t shit talk.
Thru the Eyes of Ruby
Iha: Thank you guys.
Iha: We're really--we're really really trying, are you having fun? Heh. Are you having a reasonably good time? Okay. I hope we're fulfilling rock requirements. In this next song, we will fulfill the rock requirement.
> Cherub Rock
Porcelina of the Vast Oceans
D’arcy: Thank you.
Iha: Thank you very much.
BC: Do you have your clean sound on? Do you have the nice clean sound on? Good. Alright, we're gonna try a little community singalong now. If you've listened to the album one time, you know the words to this song, so....
(BC: (singing) Lily, my one--(speaking) no, okay, sorry, heh.)
> We Only Come Out at Night
BC: Thank you very much. Hey, you people up in the balcony, you're awful quiet up there, what's up? Wassup, are you rockin' up there or what?
Iha: Hey, man, people are--
BC: Yeah who the fuck are you, huh?
Iha: I’m the motherfuckin’ guy up here keepin' it real.
BC: Wassup? Wassup?
Iha: Heh. They’re just keepin’ it real, you know what I'm saying?
BC: Dope ass rhyme time or no? Would you like to do some dope ass rhymes while I put my guitar on?
(Jimmy starts a beat)
Iha: Now, now. Kick it. Nah, kick it.
BC: Ah, you're being too alternative. (Jimmy stops) Naw, don't be so alternative, man. Alright, we're gonna play some dope ass jam now. You don't like this song, you need to get your heart checked, you know what I mean?
Iha: Thanks. You guys are too kind, heh, and we're too lame, heh heh.
BC: We're serial... (speaking gibberish) Shh, shh. Feel the moment.
> Silverfuck / Space Jam / Dose / Never Let Me Down Again / Drown
(BC over very end: God bless you, goodnight. Hugs and kisses to all, thank you.)
