Alt MCIS Intro
Disarm (Billy solo acoustic)
Space Oddity
Zero interlude film
(BC: Ladies, gentlemen, friends, lovers, beasts or fowl, welcome to the show. We are the illuminated, the illustrious, the ill-timed knock. (Two snare drum hits) Ah yes, we are the fractured, the schisms, the rift and the rabble, the sleepy clown, the atomized downs, the dreams you stopped dreaming oh so long ago. Yes, all colors mixed and marred make up the black, as do all numbers fix up the zero, zed and null. So let’s go back to your beginnings, as I shall go back to mine. It won’t last, it’ll be quick, but then again, that’s why we’re here. No past, no future, no sun. So let’s blow on fading embers, to boast about kings near, forgotten and buried. Tis the end. Tis the end. Tis the end.)
> The Everlasting Gaze
Stand Inside Your Love
Iha: Hey. Thanks a lot. You guys are super awesome, thanks for coming out. Phoenix, I mean Glendale, why so hot? It’s so hot. I’ve been hanging out in Glendale, it’s hot as hell. But I like it. This next song is hot as hell. It’s called, heh, sorry, yeah, “Thirty-three.”
Thirty-three (acoustic)
Vaudeville interlude film
(Mark McGrath: Well, hello there, neighbors. Are you enjoying the show thus far? Well, good, I am too, even though I’m not real. Now, if I could steal a moment of your time, I’d like to introduce somebody verrry special to you. He’s been a friend and a neighbor to each and every one of you. He’s been the voice you might hear in the stiiill of the night or a night dog straining against the moon. And, in fact, this young man has been with you almost every step along the way, on life’s long journey, sighing so ever soft. He’s been a lover, a fighter, but never a cad. A beacon, a searchlight piercing every impenetrable fog. And he’s here, just now, to sing for you, that golden chestnut we like to call “Blew Away.” So gather round, ‘cause here he is: the one, the only, Mr. Jaaaaames Iha.)
Blew Away
Iha: Ow!
For Martha
BC: Thank you, thank you.
To Sheila
> Mayonaise
Iha: Ow! ... Ow ow!
Porcelina of the Vast Oceans
Iha: How you guys doin’?
Landslide (acoustic)
BC: Thank you so kindly, thank you!
Iha: Thank you so much.
BC: Thank you!
Iha: We appreciate it.
Tonight, Tonight
short lounge interlude (most is tape but Katie plays organ live)
> Stairway to Heaven
Iha: Stairway to Heaven. Give it up.
Cherub Rock
Vaudeville interlude film
(Mark McGrath: Well, wowie zowie, papa ooh maow maow. What a wang dang and doodle of a show. And, it ain’t over yet. Now I don’t know about you but this next tune is one of my faaaaaaves. Reminds me of driving down the old PCH, high out of my mind on ecstasy and I’m singing the chorus of the song you’re about to hear so hard and so on high, that one of my front teeth fell right out! Yup, plain out right there in the dashboard. Wow. That dickens (?) just, just so good, wasn’t it? I mean, here you have young wash masters rising out to start a musical and cultural revolution that was soon co-opted by the machine and driven asunder! Gee golly. But thankfully, what we got in return was just so much better. I mean, let’s face it, who doesn’t want perfection in their stars above? ‘Cause perfect people making perfect, sweet music is, well, it’s just, it’s just what a god wants for all of us! Whoo! Red light, stop, it’s rain. The air is cool and the sky is gray and the year? Well, it’s 1979!)

Bullet with Butterfly Wings
BC: Friends! Thank you so much, thank you! We wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for you so thank you, thank you, thank you from our family. Thank you. ... Now, as some of you may know, tonight is the first night of our tour. And when we were picking cities of where to start, I showed James a list and he said “Phoenix, brother, Phoenix.”
Iha: Ha ha.
BC: I said “Are you sure?” (Iha overlaps and says “I said...”) “It’s hot, it’s dry, the people are drunk...and they smoke a lot of, like, weed and stuff.” And you were like....
Iha: I said “It’s gotta start somewhere in the desert.” It’s so...HOT!
BC: So thank you again. Thank you.
Iha: Thank you, you guys have been great, thank you so much. Thank you to Metric! Thank you, guys!
