The venue recorded the show using a video camera set up toward the back of the room with a frontal view of the full band, according to the venue's doorman. He claims they did this with all shows of this era, but the recordings have never been copied.

  • The band played a short jam on Iggy Pop's "TV Eye."
  • "Lithium" deteriorated during the second chorus, so the band cut the song short.
  • "Been A Son" deteriorated into jamming toward the end of the song.
  • Krist jammed on the Melvins' "Eye Flys."
