NOTES

With Will Kimbrough on guitar. Before Ballad of the Kingsmen, there are a few requests from the crowd to have the sound turned up. Todd asks the sound person to turn it up: "Could you turn that up so everyone can hear? I'm saying some really important stuff. That last one was the cure for cancer but I don't even remember what it was." Todd forgets the words to New Connection and stops the song but plays the whole thing through a few songs later. This seems to be a tough crowd -- where Todd usually gets some laughs, it's pretty quiet. By the end of the show, Todd seems to be rushing through some songs.


VARIATIONS

On Ballad of the Kingsmen:

  • "Now he gets all kinds of chicks."
On Talkin' Seattle Grunge Rock Blues:
  • "Space Needle, Eddie Vedder, Ichiro Suzuki"
  • "...shave off these goatees, pack up the van, drive down to California and sell it. Buy a horse and ride it out into the desert. I don't care how goddamn hot it is. I'm gonna name that son of a bitch."
On Doublewide Blues:
  • "I sit here and watch all this nothing goin' on. Pretty glued to the TV since the Scott Peterson verdict is still on."
