Thirty-three (acoustic)
1979 (acoustic)
(BC over intro strumming: Thanks a lot. This next song, I wrote when I was 12 years old. It's kinda sad considering it's a really good song and I haven’t written much better songs since I was twelve but nonetheless, it's a very nice song, I hope you like it.)
Circus tape
> Bullet with Butterfly Wings
Iha: Woo! Thank you very much, [unintelligible word or two - possibly in French], Canada, Vancouver. We're glad you're back with us, we're rockin' now and uh, we're gonna play another rock anthem for you Vancouveran people, let's rock.
BC: We'll sing this song for you up there, we know we look like little ants but we're actually really tall.
Muzzle
Disarm

> Thru the Eyes of Ruby
[encore break]
[tape cut]
Iha: So today in lovely Vancouver, we went to visit the set of The X-Files and uh, we go way back with them, Chris, Dave, Jill and uh, in fact in some strange way all of our uh - my father knew Chris Carter when he used to live in San Diego, they were fishermen on a wharf. Billy's dad knew Dave's dad and they were...chess players and uh, they've known each other for years and D'arcy in fact, her sister knew Gillian's sister and they go way back and so it was just this crazy thing and we just - we had a laugh, we played some cards and we uh, we became - we were a monster on one of the X-Files episodes today so, we'd like to dedicate this next song to the fine cast and crew of - of that company. And this next song is called (whispered) X.Y.U.
X.Y.U.
[encore break]
BC: Thank you very much, thank you. Hey, just for a second, this guy over here, he's got a sign, “I play drums,” you show everybody. Show everyone that you have this sign. Let's just assume that your name is Jeff. I don't know your name but for now your name is Jeff. Jeff, we already have a drummer, his name is Matt.
Iha: Ladies and gentlemen, Matt "Cosmo" Walker!
BC: (overlapping with Iha saying same words) “Cosmo” Walker!
Iha: Hey. Let's all say “hi, Matt.”
BC: Matt, please lead us into the heavens.
By Starlight
BC: Thanks a lot.
Siva / The Great White Buffalo
(BC in middle of Great White Buffalo teasing: Oops.)
[encore break]
Iha: (appears mic not working correctly) Hey, thank you very much.
BC: Yes, thank you very much for giving us energy. We don't uh, for those of you in the know, we don't talk much after this point so we'll say thank you now, have a nice year, happy new year. We wish you the best of luck and happiness. And we hope to see you again in 1998.
Iha: [unintelligible because mic still not working right]
