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: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you, Mohegan Sun. Thank you, Uncasville. I never - that’s an awkward name: Uncasville. Thank you so much. How the hell are you? What’s your game?: blackjack, poker, wheel of fortune... I see, okay, great. Well, we’re very happy to be here and we’re happy that you’re here so thank you so much.
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.)
> Porcelina of the Vast Oceans
Iha: Thank you. We’re gonna bring it down, just for a second.
short lounge interlude (most is tape but Katie plays organ live)
> Stairway to Heaven
Iha: Stairway to wherever. I’d like to thank Led Zeppelin for writing that awesome song. Thank you. I’ve had a change of heart, I think Uncasville is a beautiful name. I didn’t understand before. But now, quick introduction. On the keyboards, vocals, guitar, Ms. Katie Cole. She’s - there she is, she’s waving, she’s in the dark. Katie Cole. She’s a singer, she’s got CDs, they’re for sale. On the bass, Mr. Jack Bates. Keeping the low end down. On the guitar, Mr. Jeff Schroeder. Gimme a lick from Kiss, lick it up.
unknown Kiss tease
Iha: Alright!!!! Fuck the introductions, let’s rock. Alright, on the drums, Mr. Jimmy Chamberlin.
Iha: He’s a beast. I’m James Iha and on lead vocals and guitar, Mr. Billy Corgan, yesssss.
Whole Lotta Love (tease)
(Iha: Let’s get the lead out. Let’s get the lead out in Uncasville. What’s your game?: blackjack? Alriiight! You need coolin’, baby I’m [unintelligible]!)
BC: Brother, the 90s are over, man. It’s 2018 (laughing).
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 up 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!)
Radio Intro tape
BC: Ah, showbiz, I see. Woo! Yeah! Hahahahahahaha. That’s right, actually. We are the Smashing Pumpkins. Thirty years and motherfuckin’ counting. We’re gonna torture you ‘til the day you die or the day we die, so thank you for that. We love you very much, appreciate you very much. I know this song - this next song means a lot to James. Heh. You might want to train your cameras on him as he’s been known to weep during this song.
BC: It’s like the - when the statue weeps, you know? It’s like one of those. Song called Try...Try...Try.
Try, Try, Try
> The Beginning is the End is the Beginning
Bullet with Butterfly Wings
BC: Thank you, thank you very kindly. We’ve reached the end. Thank you very much for being with us tonight, thank you. We appreciate you, we appreciate you. So just one more song before we go...go.
Iha: Thank you so much, Uncasville. Don’t gamble too much, I know we’re in a casino but...be sensible.
(BC immediately after lyrics finish: Mohegan Sun. Thank you very much. Thank you for staying ‘til the end, we love you! Thank you.)
Iha: Thank you so much, have a good night, drive home safe, we really appreciate you staying.
