Bootleg Update!

The 1994 bootleg section has been updated with the 3/7 Denver show and the 3/9 Pensacola show. Both shows are available in FLAC and MP3 formats! Enjoy!!

attendance: 2,000
support act: The Frogs
set: Oceans, Go, Animal, Breath, Why Go, Blood, Garden, Not for You, Rearviewmirror, Why Go, Jeremy, Alive, (Sick o' Pussies)/Porch/(WMA), Spin the Black Circle, Glorified G, Daughter/(Rats)/(jam), Street Fightin' Man, Rockin' in the Free World, Indifference
notes: 'Spin the Black Circle' and 'Not for You' premier. During 'Blood,' Jeff jumps on top of Dave's kickdrum. Ed gives a short speech before 'Not for You' hinting that he wrote it after receiving mail from a convicted rapist saying how great the band was, and he talks briefly about David Gunn before 'Alive.' Mike smashes his guitar after 'Porch.' A mean version of 'Rats' follows 'Daughter.' Stone(?) notes, "We've never played this one in its entirety, but we're gonna try tonight," leading to a 11+ minute cover/jam of 'Street Fightin' Man.' Ed picks up some sticks during the end and drums a bit. Reportedly, Stone's baggy shorts fall and remain at his ankles as he's shredding rhythms. Mike is facing Stone, just ripping. Ed comes from the side and proceeds to wrap Mike in duct tape from his knees down. They continue to jam and Mike decides to lie down on the stage while a roadie pulls Mike's pants down. Mike goes after Jeff, lifting him off the ground via his BVD waistband. Ed dons a Bill Clinton mask!
attendance: 8,000
support act: L7 and Follow For Now
set: I Won't Back Down, Go, Animal, Even Flow, Dissident, State of Love and Trust, Glorified G, Daughter/(WMA), Blood, Why Go, Jeremy, Black, Alive
enc 1: David Gunn Jr. speech, Rearviewmirror, Elderly Woman, Porch/(Tearing)

enc 2: Indifference
notes: PJ reportedly received death threats prior to this performance. Ed starts the show off with a solo cover of Tom Petty's 'I Won't Back Down,' commenting "You know why we're here." Ed discusses pro-choice a bit, ending with, "... all these men trying to control women's bodies are really beginning to piss me off ... they're not in touch with what's real. Well, I'm fucking mean and I'm ugly and my name is reality." This benefit occurred one day prior to the one-year anniversary of the day Dr. David Gunn was shot outside a women's clinic. His son spoke: "You all have the voice. We are the majority. We have the power to take our country back (and to defeat those who) want to take our choices away from us."
