The master was surfaced in September 2002.
Many small cuts are present on the recording between songs.
Just before "Spank Thru", the taper did a radio station ID, saying "KAOS 89.3, Olympia, Washington."
The show was most likely taped to be broadcast on KAOS, but it is not known if it was ever actually broadcast.
If it was broadcast, it's possible that the circulating 25-minute edit of this recording was sourced from the broadcast.

SBD #1

It is rumored that the show was recorded.

  • This was the first show with Dave Grohl on drums.
  • The power went out multiple times toward the beginning of the show, causing the band to stop playing in the middle of "Molly's Lips" and "D-7," without finishing either song. It also caused them to stop in the middle of "Blew," but they finished the song when the power came back on.
