To Forgive
BC: Howdy, good evening. Thank you very much everybody for coming to the concert. At this time, we’d like to make a simple announcement to you. Not to you, to you.
Iha: This you.
BC: We’d like to play music and we’re very glad to be here. However, every dumb fuck who throws something on stage - right? - jeopardizes the continuance of the concert because the fact of the matter is if any of you dumb fuckers hit us in the head with something like a shoe or quarter, then we’re gonna stop the show...
Iha: Or a [unintelligible].
BC: ...and I don’t think that’s why anybody came. So it’s very simple, do not throw things on stage. If you do, if you do...
Iha: Right.
BC: ...if you throw things on stage, then you might have 50 people around you wanting to kick your ass because you’re the one who stopped the show. It’s just that simple, we’re here to see you out of respect and we want that much respect. You don’t have to like the music, just don’t throw shit at us. So we hope everyone has a good time. We hope you crazy motherfuckers down here don’t kill each other.
Iha: And now, let’s be happy. ‘Cause Today is the greatest crazy day!
Iha: Oh my god! And now, we go way back in time to our first record. Many of you people - many of you people like the old songs, here’s an old song.
Iha: Here’s something mellow and mild [unintelligible 2 words] will rock out on this one. Any fans of James Taylor? [unintelligible]? Anybody a fan of the first Crosby, Stills & Nash album? Alright, well, we’re not gonna do any of those songs but, heh heh, I just thought I’d ask.

> Bullet with Butterfly Wings
Fuck You
By Starlight
BC: Thank you very much. This is normally the part of the show where we stop so people can yell things at us.
Iha: Go ahead, yell! Ow! Go ahead! I know, we’ll wait. Alright, enough of this yelling stuff. Let’s be mellow.
BC: Like to thank those of you up there for standing and rocking out with us.
Iha: The people to the left, I give you the evil hand. The people to the right, we salute you with the evil hand as well. You seem like fine people. Adieu.
[encore break]
Iha: People of the upper bowl, we salute you, thank you. Um, it is now time for a very special friend. He’s a shoe salesman and he comes all the way from Milwaukee, of The Frogs, Jimmy Frog! No, Jimmy is a man of all seasons. And on keyboards, his brother, Dennis Frog! Yes. Let’s have a nice round of [unintelligible word] applause for Dennis Frog.
BC: Jimmy, would you like to say something to the people of the Quad Cities?
Jimmy Frog: (screams)
Iha: Well then. Well, Halloween is only a few days ago.
BC: [unintelligible].
Iha: And uh, we should also introduce, on the drums, yes, Matt “Cosmo” Walker! Matt, yes, Matt is a redhead. I know it freaks out most people so that’s why I brought it up.
BC: But is he a real redhead?
Iha: I don’t see.
BC: Now, we’ve started a new tradition for our show.
Iha: Yes.
BC: This is the part of the show where we invite audience members on stage to dance.
Iha: Yes, to dance! Now, we can only pick...
BC: The green angel!
Iha: ...can only pick two.
BC: I think tonight three.
Iha: Three!
BC: Tonight it’s three.
Iha: Tonight. Tonight [unintelligible].
BC: Jimmy shall choose the dancers. Jimmy, choose away.
Iha: Who shall it be? (Matt plays a beat) Oh yeah, what up [unintelligible]. Let me see those motherfuckin’ hands in the air like you just don’t care. I wanna hear it, I gotta know it’s real, you gotta keep it real here with the Smashing Pumpkins. If you’re not on stage, we’re not [unintelligible].
BC: Yeah, who shall be so lucky to be humiliated - I mean, allowed to come on stage and dance.
Iha: Oh yeah, jump. Jump for joy if you wanna dance with the Smashing Pumpkins. Jump for joy! [unintelligible] That’s right, we’ll give it up here, we’re going techno crazy right here. Jimmy, pick up all the fuckin’ dancers right now.
BC: Tryin’ to do something in the next five minutes, please.
Iha: Come on! I can’t [unintelligible].
BC: We’re on the fuckin’ clock, guys.
Iha: Oh, oh, things have ground to....
BC: Hey, green angel, pick some fuckin’ people, would you?
Iha: ...a screeching halt, here we have one unlucky person. (Matt’s beat stops) Two people. Now, does he have all three people?
BC: Let’s get to know our first dancer.
Iha: Our first dancer, what’s your name and where are you?
Girl #1: Amy [unintelligible] from Chicago!
Iha: [unintelligible].
BC: Chicago?
Iha: Where the fuck is that? Alright, dancer number two.
BC: Hello? Please tell everyone who you are and where you’re from?
Girl #2: [unintelligible] from Molina.
BC: Molina, where the fuck is that? Is that where Great America is? Oh okay, sorry.
Iha: Dancer number three.
BC: Dancer number three? Who are you and where are you from?
Guy #1: Greg Holland from East Moline. (crowd screams) Yo!
BC: I got a homeboy in the house.
Iha: I don’t know, he’s got his shirt unbuttoned, it’s kind of freaking me out. [unintelligible]
BC: For those of you who haven’t seen us play before, we have two rules for our dancers.
Iha: The two rules.
BC: The two rules and dancers, please observe this, or I will hurt you.
Iha: He will hurt you.
BC: Don’t touch us and don’t touch our shit.
Iha: Okay, don’t touch us and don’t touch our shit.
BC: Now, let’s dance.
Iha: And now, now we dance!
Iha: Ladies and gentlemen, never have I seen such a spectacle in Moline. Let’s have a fine round of applause for our three dancers, yes. They tried valiantly. That was our interactive part of the night. What? Boxing? I don’t know who won the World Series, no, I don’t know.
BC: Well, I can tell you enjoyed that segment of the show very much. The energy was overwhelming, I can feel it, I can feel the love.
Iha: It was - it was too crazy for us. So what’s up?
In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida (tease)
Iha: No. No. No. No roo no. Yeah. In, in, in, in. I’m so glad you people could be here tonight and fuckin’ rock with the Smashing Pumpkins. I’m so glad, I’m so glad you’ve come out tonight. I think you know this song. In the Garden of Eden, you know what that’s about?! Animal need, yeah! In the Garden of Eden and somehow it became.... It became funky. [unintelligible] very funky. (In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida ends) Alright, show’s winding down. We’ve lost our minds. The dancing was too much. Sensory overload. Get me some energy, people, alright?! Alright!!
[encore break]
Porcelina of the Vast Oceans
> Silverfuck / Tonight, Tonight / Dose / Space Jam / Slunk / Siva
(BC at 22:00: I’d like to take a moment to thank everyone who stuck around for the whole show. It shows us a lot. Because it shows us that you’re here and not ‘cause of some song you saw on MTV. Just remember that what you see isn’t mean, it’s not more to see and what you hear doesn’t mean there’s not more to hear. It’s a big world and I can tell you, there are a lot more lands than Moline and Davenport and Chicago and America. So, we hope we’ve taken you across the frontiers of your own scary mind on this Hallow’s Eve. We send you a message of love, of trust and compassion and absolute respect. Just remember that there is no time like now. Time is never time at all. Huh. And don’t wait for tomorrow to get on with your dreams and your thoughts and your feelings. Because before you know it, you’re old like us. So thank you, god bless you. We are the Smashing Pumpkins.)
Iha: Well, we’re sorry, we’re sorry. Goodnight, thank you for being a wonderful audience. Glad you all came out. Hope you weren’t disappointed by that last jam but uh...that’s what we do when we’re really, completely out of our minds, we play bad ‘60s music. Thanks, drive home safe.
