A Song for a Son
Today
> Astral Planes
BC: Thank you! This is our new song.
Freak
> Hummer
As Rome Burns
BC: Thank you so much, thank you!
Eye
> Bullet with Butterfly Wings
BC: Thank you so much, thank you! You know whenever you come to South Florida, it’s always gonna be a par-tay. Rock and roll party. How’s everybody feelin’ tonight, you okay? That’s right. Is it too crowded in here or is everybody okay? Haha, I see this guy givin’ me the middle finger. You know besides writing all these songs, I also set the building capacities. I’m a sive uh - I’m a fire marshal on the side, so I actually do the building capacities as well.
Jeff: [unintelligible]
BC: That’s right, when I’m not writing alternative hits, I’m deciding how many people can come in a venue. It’s amazing, you didn’t know I did that, do you?
Jeff: No, I didn’t.
BC: I also make ice cream.
Jeff: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, [unintelligible].
BC: That’s right. I’m gonna get into uh....(mimes shooting an arrow)...bow and arrow like the Nuge.
Jeff: Archery, archery.
BC: Archery, like the Nuge. You’re good, it’s fair if you kill your game with the bow, it’s fair. Anyway, you didn’t come here just to hear me talk. You came here to watch me implode, let’s face it.
Jeff: I did, (laughs).
BC: Haha, it’s been a while since I had a meltdown.
Jeff: Yup, yup, yup, yup.
BC: Heh heh, okay, like to do an oldie for you.
Ava Adore
United States / Star Spangled Banner
BC: Thank you very much, thank you! Everybody having a good time? Like to bring out a very special guest tonight, my niece, Ava Martha Corgan, come on out here. We’re gonna sing a song together. She’s a star, she won’t come out, Ava Martha Corgan. (Ava gives him a flower that he tucks behind his ear, then another young girl runs across the stage) That was my other niece. Okay, we’re gonna sing an old song from the 1920s. It’s called Love is the Sweetest Thing.
Love is the Sweetest Thing (Billy ukelele w/Ava Corgan)
(Ava throws a pick into the crowd and gets a big reaction, so Billy has her throw another)
BC: Yeah, Ava. Say hi to everybody.
Ava: Hi.
(Billy’s other niece taps him on the hip and he picks her up)
BC: This is number two right here, Sophia. You wanna say hi to everybody? (Sophia shakes her head no) (high pitched) “I’m so happy to be here, it’s so great. Smashing Pumpkins fans are the best. [2 unintelligible words]. It’s so awesome to have a genius for an uncle, he’s so kind and everything, he takes me to Toys "R" Us all the time because he takes all your money from writing sad songs and then he spends it on me, thank you very much everybody!” (Ava and Sophia leave the stage) Thank you everybody. ... Alright. That was the end of part one. No, dude, you take your shirt off, buddy. You’re the one in the gym on steroids, looking at other men while you do your ab crunches. I’m the one locked in a cave writing songs reaching millions. I could just go in and get lipo and I’d have the same abs as you, buddy. You take your shirt off. Haha, and here’s another song!
Bleeding the Orchid
BC: That was a song called Bleeding the Orchid. It’s a new song, it’ll be out next year. Well, that’s the end of the show. (crowd moans) Well, you’ve lost interest, once you lose interest, I lose interest. That’s how it works in my kingdom. Would you like another sad song? Did you feel that enthusiasm, Jeff?
Jeff: Oh yeah.
BC: It almost knocked you over.
Jeff: [unintelligible], oh yeah, I feel it, I’m feeling it. How ‘bout a love song? (Billy starts Perfect) Oh yeah, I like this one.
Perfect (abandoned quickly)
BC: We can start that again, I’m not.... (gesturing to himself and Jeff)
Perfect (abandoned after 6-7 notes when Billy hits a wrong one)
BC: (high pitched) Ach!
Perfect
[tape cut]
BC: I wrote this on a tequila bender. I was listening to the Doors, driving down the highway for about seven days, just drinking tequila and I wrote this song.
Cherub Rock
> Stand Inside Your Love
> Owata
BC: Well, we’re almost at the end. Yeaah, yeah. This ain’t porn, you know, you just can’t keep going and going. I don’t know where that came from, heh heh. Anything you wanna know before we leave? Yes, it’s true, what else? My middle name is Patrick. Anything else? Yes, I watch South Park. Jeff, I’m just stalling for time, it’s a professional tactic to catch my breath.
Jeff: Right there, right there, she has a question.
BC: That man is not strong enough to hold her on his shoulders.
Country Death Song (tease - Jeff plays a few notes)
BC: I’m guessing that’s a relationship that’s doomed. Okay, let’s see if you can make it through the next song. Alright, you got the machismo, huh? Where you from, where is he from? Miami? Home of...(Spanish accent) the Miami Heat. (normal voice) Home of Dwyane Wade from Chicago. Home of Chris Bosh, I don’t know where he’s from. Home of LeBron James. I don’t know if you heard, Jeff, but uh, he left Cleveland.
Jeff: Oh really?
BC: He signed with Miami.
Jeff: Holy shit!
BC: There’s only one problem.
Jeff: Yeah?
BC: The three guys take up all the money, there’s - they only can put on three guys on the court.
Jeff: Huh.
BC: It’s like three guys and like, against five. Right, there’s no money, right? Udonis Haslem, is that a Udonis Haslem fan? Do I know my basketball? Heh heh.
La Grange (tease - Jeff is quietly playing the riff while Billy talks)
BC: Alright, it’s the end of the show so before we go, we just wanna say thank you so much everybody. El crowd-o fantastico. That’s Spanish.
Nicole: Oh really?
BC: Yeah, you gotta speak Spanish when you come down here. El crowd-o el fantastico, heh. El grande rock show.
Nicole: Gracias?
BC: Gracias, señorita.
Tarantula
> Tonight, Tonight
(BC immediately after last note: God bless you everybody, thank you so much, thank you!)
