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: Seattle, thank you so much. Thank you so much for coming out, thank you so much for rocking out. How are you? Are you alright? Having a reasonable time? Great. We’re at the fourth-way mark of the show, we’re just kinda cruisin’ in. This next song is from, uh, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, it’s called 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
For Martha
BC: Thank you very kindly, thank you.
To Sheila
> Mayonaise
Porcelina of the Vast Oceans
Landslide (acoustic)
Tonight, Tonight
short lounge interlude (most is tape but Katie plays organ live)
> Stairway to Heaven
Iha: Thank you so much. Thank you so much, Seattle. Stairway to Heaven. Smashing Pumpkins. You’ve seen it, you’ve heard it. Cross it off the bucket list. Thank you so much. Like to do a quick introduction of the band. All the way from Melbourne, Australia, on the keys, acoustic guitar, vocals, Ms. Katie Cole. Katie Cole. CDs are for sale. And now, all the way from Manchester, England, on the bass guitar, Mr. Jack Bates. Nice one, nice one. He’s a good man, he’s a good man. And now, from southern California, on the guitar, Mr. Jeff Schroeder. Heh, alright, I guess you right. (unknown riff from Jeff) Ow! Seattle! Nice, nice. And now on the motherfrickin’ drums, Mr. Jimmy Chamberlin! (crowd cheers) Mr. Jimmy Chamberlin! Thank you. On guitar, it’s me, James Iha, thank you so much. Two thumbs up, thank you. And now, on lead vocals, lead guitar, a man of the world, Mr. William Patrick Corgan!
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 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
> 1979
Ava Adore
BC: Woo-oooh! Y’all make me wanna take up some logging. Heh heh heh. Seattle, we appreciate you, thank you so much. (laughing) (deep voice) Yeah. (laughing) Heh heh heh. Heh heh heh heh. Woo!
Iha: I don’t know if I want to take up logging. I like Seattle a lot though. I just - you’re feelin’ it.
BC: (laughing) James, let’s go into this next song. It’s a ballad.
Iha: Yes.
BC: For the lovers in the audience, the ones that are left.
Try, Try, Try
The Beginning is the End is the Beginning
> Hummer
Bullet with Butterfly Wings
Iha: Alright, alright, alright, Seattle, thank you so much! Rock power, thank you so much, you guys have been awesome. This is our last song and we appreciate you so much for sticking around.
BC: Thank you so much, everybody, thank you, thank you. You guys up at the top have a good time? Woo. Hey, we wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for you - 30 years, what a crazy journey. We first came up here to good old Seattle in 1990.
Iha: A million years ago.
BC: Drove the silver van 40 hours to get to Seattle. To open for Tad, great band. And the Afghan Whigs, right?
Iha: Yeah, where did we play? The - the Crocodile or...?
BC: Huh?
Iha: Where did we play?
BC: What did we play?
Iha: Where - where did we play?
BC: Where did we play? I think we played in Sub Pop’s basement or some shit. (Iha laughs) Heh, anyway. I try just to play music these days and keep my mouth shut so thank you for listening. As Frank Zappa once said, “Just shut up and play your guitar.” That’s what I’ma do. But before we go, this is our last song. Thank you so much everybody, thank you, wow, what an amazing night, thank you. Oh! Oh! I totally forgot, I totally forgot. This show has been broadcast on Twitter for the last three hours around the whole entire world.
Iha: Which is Friendster.
BC: No one told you? You didn’t get the - you didn’t get the e-mail? So you’ve done well, you’ve shown the world that this city rocks hard. And uh, you know, to the people that left and are home doing heroin, you know, we still love them too. That was a joke, come on, it’s okay. We have heroin in Chicago too. (laughing through next sentence) See this is why - “Shut up and play your guitar.” Woo! Hey man, heh. Alternative rock, alternative rock. Not rock, alternative rock. Anyway, if you know this song, please sing along.
[encore break]
Baby Mine
Iha: Thanks a lot, guys. We really appreciate it. Thank you so much. Get home safe. Thank you.
