BLACK MARKET AIRBAGS...debut of KFHG's performance of this Bryant's Traction classic...and did I already hear...(oh, no)...?
TECHNO TROUSERS...back to Bryant's...with an extra Chuck jam
PYRAMID SCHEME...followed by a break for a "minor adjustment to the navigational system"
NO PAIN...with Chuck starting "like clockwork"...followed by the kick drum gradually losing its moorings...bad bass drum, you deserve to be kicked over...and pierced with a drum stick?!...I'm sure that C.C. was just as suprised as all of us
THEME FROM "SCIENCE FICTION"...all Kenny can do is laugh at trying those changes with no kick drum cues...this instro is followed by a break to get a new bass drum (thanks, guys...forgot band's name)..."Colin broke his bass drum, Chuck blew up his guitar...the cardinals of the demise"--K-Dog
NIKETOWN...with Chuck trying some "new" guitar parts..."if I could be like Spike"
VINNIE'S PERINIUM...featuring D'Joe on trumpet
WADE...also with Joe St. John...with that new hard-ass bridge/outro
KUNG FU HULA GIRL...encore...sort of...
Let's hope that these things really only do come in threes
March 11, 1999 at THE JOINT, West Los Angeles
SUICIDE BITCH...what the hell is that noise?
ROADIE...followed by a short break to take care of the unannounced audio "science experiment." Intros by Ken included references to "supersonic extravaganza" Chuck and "lucky charm" C.C. ...Chris Anderson yelled the suggestion that someone "sing really high again" ...seems that a lot of things were being done really high...and Happy 30th Birthday to Julian "JuJu Baby" Jenkins
SCIENCE FICTION THEME...debut performance of the new insrumental tune
SPORTS MEDLEY..."What will he sell us now...minoxydil"
KUNG FU HULA GIRL
SATELLITE OF LOVE...encore
K-Dog gave us all "thanks for indulging the process." And we hope that Spinal Tap guitarist Nigel Tufnel got his rig returned to him in one piece...was that a "niner" heard over the speakers or just a low flying military craft?

Broken string...broken heart...if you were there, you know
A notable highlight...SATELLITE OF LOVE (L. Reed)...done as proto punk tune!
They say you can't do a show without a few strings attached...only this time, it wasn't the correct number. (see photo)
