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: Columbus, thank you! Thank you so much for coming out. How are you? Heh heh. How are you? Are you having a reasonable time? I’ve had a reasonable time in Columbus. It’s very rainy though: the rain! This man is screaming out “The rain.” Well, uh, we really appreciate you being here, thanks so much, we’re gonna rock some more. Well, not on this next song so much, but you’re gonna like it. It’s a good one.
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.)
BC: Thank you so kindly, thank you!
Porcelina of the Vast Oceans
Iha: Thank you so much, thank you Columbus. That was called Porcelina. Uh, how are you? Heh heh. Strange to ask that in an arena full of people. Thank you so much. This next song is a beautiful song from a beautiful band and uh, hope you like it.
short lounge interlude (most is tape but Katie plays organ live)
> Stairway to Heaven
Iha: As - as soon as we started playing that song, somebody smoked the pot. You play Stairway to Heaven, you’re like “Oh yeah, I - I got some pot on me, I guess I should....” How do you just do that? Thank you so much. Uh, I’d like to give a quick introduction to the band. On vocals, keyboards and acoustic guitar, all the way from Australia, Ms. Katie Cole! Katie Cole. CDs are for sale up front, check it out. And now, all the way from Manchester, England, on the bass guitar, Mr. Jack Bates! Jack Bates. And now, all the way from southern California, on guitar...
Voodoo Child (tease - Jeff plays a few seconds of the intro)
Iha: Ow! Yeah! Jimi Hendrix. Who can name that song? Doesn’t matter. Jeff Schroeder! I’m James Iha, thank you so much. On vocals, lead guitar, Mr. Billlllllllly Corgan! We’ve got this improvisional thing we’re now going to go into, just uh, take out that doobie you got and just...FUCK! Mr. Jimmy Chamberlin on drums!
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: Buckeyes, woo! Jimmy, what the fuck’s a buckeye, do you know?
Jimmy: It’s some kind of nut seed thing, right?
BC: Did you know that, James? A buckeye is a nut seed?
Iha: Nut seed?
BC: You did know that, no?
Iha: Yes, I did. I went to college.
BC: Hey, god bless everybody, thank you so much for being here with us. We’re having a great time playing for you, honestly, earnestly. Heh heh heh heh, ‘cause I feel like being honest tonight. Woo!
Try, Try, Try

Bullet with Butterfly Wings
Iha: Thank you, Columbus! You guys are the best, thank you! Thank you for taking this musical journey with us. Are you still with us? Awesome. This is, uh, the last song and we thank you so much, you guys have been really great, it’s amazing. Love the energy.
BC: Thank you so much, Columbus, thank you, thank you. We appreciate you so much. We appreciate you so much. As some of you might know, we started this band 30 years ago.
Iha: A long time ago.
BC: Give or take a year and a month or so. 30 years ago, we started it in my dad’s house, in my dad’s bedroom, me and this guy right here.
Iha: This is where they play the Odd Couple Theme.
BC: Who knew we’d be in Columbus right now doing this right here with these wonderful people?
Iha: I could not have imagined.
BC: Jimmy said he knew always from the beginning, he always knew.
BC: He had a feeling.
Iha: Heh heh, did you now?
BC: Jimmy, did we not have some of our best early Smashing Pumpkins gigs right here in Columbus?
Iha: I think that was the time we dropped acid....
BC: Always bring the rock in Columbus, always bring the rock. So we have one more song. Heh heh. I swear it’s just one more song.
Iha: Ten more songs.
BC: If you know this one....
Iha: We’re gonna play an early hit, it’s called Try to Try.
BC: If you know this one, sing along. Do you know this one?
Iha: Uh, is it the song on the setlist? Yes, I do know that song. We’ve been practicing it for a while. I programmed some effects and distortion.
BC: It’s the song on the setlist, yes it is.
Iha: Yeah, it’s the song on the setlist and uh, I got the right tuning.
BC: Okay, if you know this one, please sing along.
Iha: Thank you! Thank you, Columbus. You guys have been so great, thank you so much, we really appreciate it. Please get home safe. Good night.
