Tonight, Tonight (Billy solo piano)
99 Floors (Billy solo acoustic)
Today (Billy solo acoustic)
BC: May you always remain so happy. It’s a long show, it’s about two and a half hours long if we get to the end. And uh...
Guy in crowd: Dirty dish day!
BC: Whatever you want, buddy. Whatever you want. I’m here to serve you. I’d like to carry on with a song that I wrote for the unreleased Chicago Kid project. It’s called My Poor Troubled Heart. I sort of stole it from an old song so it’s - wrote is a, well everybody steals these days, it’s the internet. It’s internet possession, it’s on my Tumblr account so it’s mine.
My Poor Troubled Heart (Billy solo acoustic)
Freedom Ain’t What It Used to Be (Billy solo acoustic)
For Your Love
BC: Thank you very kindly, thank you. ... Uh, this next song is dedicated to our vets. It’s called Drum and Fife.
Drum + Fife
BC: That’s from our, uh, forthcoming album Monuments to an Elegy. Oh no no, Jeff, I know it’s out, they just - they don’t know it’s out, that’s the thing. It’s the tree falls in the forest, if it doesn’t go past your Twitter crawl, it does not exist.
Guy in crowd: Come back to [unintelligible]ville!
BC: Whatever you want, buddy. Just bring towels. Thank you.
A Stitch in Time
BC: Now we’ve, uh, reached the portion in the show where we go through what we call a suite, which in our estimation is a collection of songs. And for the Adore album, I’d written about 35 or so songs. (crowd cheers) I’m glad that you like it now. You didn’t like it then, I’m glad you like it now.
Girl in crowd: Hey, I always liked it! Always!
BC: You’re the only one, darlin’.
Other girl in crowd: I love it more!
BC: God bless you.
Another girl in crowd: Everything you write is good!
BC: Thank you, heh. Um, so we’d like to play a selection of those songs, starting with a song called Jersey Shore. Now um, last night I told this story which a very sad story about a young man who murdered another young man sometime in the ‘90s. Obviously in this period and uh, the young man who murdered the young man claimed that he had murdered the other young man because of my music. And I told this story last night in Baltimore - sorry, Buffalo. The B’s, they get so confused. And uh, I will admit that it was an artistic contrivance to get the crowd to shut the fuck up. And it didn’t work, um, and then later I played another song and then that didn’t work. Then I resorted to [unintelligible]. We’ll get to that.
Girl in crowd: How’s this audience compare?
BC: Anything you want, darlin’, just...let me do my thing here. So this is Jersey Shore.
To Sheila (with Katie Cole on bass & vocals, Billy plays piano)
> Behold! The Night Mare (with Katie Cole on bass & vocals, Billy plays piano)
> For Martha (Billy plays piano)
BC: See, that was my other joke last time I said that one. If the songs about my dead mother won’t shut you up, maybe the ukulele will. And again, it didn’t work. That’s Baltimore. (crowd says it was Buffalo) I know, I know, I get it, I’m kidding, I understand.
Guy in crowd: Be PC, man!
BC: Yeah right. Don’t wanna be not PC in this world right now, I’ll tell you. Don’t wanna be not PC.
Guy in crowd: Hall of Fame next year!
BC: Hey man, that’s already in the hall of shame. You havin’ a good time, you havin’ a good time? I must say, I must say, you’re a fantastic audience, thank you so much for listening, honestly. When I was a young man and people talked, I just turned up louder and Jimmy played louder and James and I, we just played louder. But acoustic, it’s - I can only hit you in the head. Anyone remember El Kabong? Thank you, El Kabong.
Blissed and Gone (Billy solo ukulele)

[encore break, drum machine continues playing]
Spaceboy (Billy solo acoustic)
BC: Thank you, thank you. Well, we’ve reached the end of this journey. (people shouting song requests) All night long. All night, all night, alright. I’m different now, I’ll do whatever you want, whatever you want, just all night long. I’m just here to please everyone, you know what I mean? Whatever you need: wash your car, loan you some money, help you with brand marketing.... You know what the fuck this thing is [unintelligible]. (people still shouting) Freebird.
Guy in crowd: Play something from Gish!
BC: All night long. All night long. Now see, Jeff’s come up here to solo for you. (Jeff doodles) Jeff shreds, Jeff shreds. ... No, we’re not going to play those songs. You’ll let me do what the fuck I want. It’s sort of worked so far, sort of. I mean, the place is sold out, everyone’s having a good time, I think. I’ll tell you what we’ll do, I’ll tell you what we’ll do. We’ll do a Gish medley. Alright, song 1.
I Am One (tease)
BC: Oh yeah, forgot about that part. And song 2.
BC: Song 3.
BC: Song 4.
Bury Me (tease)
BC: What was Song 5? Snail? Right.
Jeff: No, that’s not it.
BC: There’s another song? Crush, right. I play bass on it, if you remember.
BC: And then Suffer.
BC: We were very into the Eastern - far Eastern trip at the moment. Then Snail.
BC: That’s it, that’s it. Then, uh...
BC: Alright? Just play that part?
BC: And then Window Paine.
Window Paine (tease)
BC: It’s amazing how many of these songs have to do with LSD now that I really think about it. And then of course....
BC: Do you wanna hear that song? No, that wasn’t a very enthusiastic response. There’s the guy in the back holding out for the Siamese medley, like if he plays Daydream, he won’t do Geek acoustic. We should do the whole catalog, just keep going. What do you think? I leave it up to you.
Jeff: Let’s do it!
BC: What do you wanna do? You wanna do Geek acoustic?
Geek U.S.A. (tease)
BC: Hey oh, [unintelligible]. Well, we hope you enjoyed the show. ... There’s always one unsatisfied customer I’ll hear from later on Twitter. Miss, I know when you’re shouting you hear your voice but to us it sounds like (extended garbling noises).
Girl in crowd: Hiiii!
BC: Hi! God bless you, buddy.
Girl in crowd: Play something!
BC: Play something, I know, I know. If you remember, that’s what I came out here to do. The people in the expensive seats.... We’re almost venturing into old school territory, right? Remember when we played Hootie and the Blowfish, remember that? That was a good one. Okay, we’d now like to play a song called El-A-Noy for you.
BC: Thank you!
