AUD #1

It is rumored that the show was recorded.

AMT #1

A local DJ from the radio station that owns the soundboard audio claims to have video taped part of the show. (It is assumed that the video tape is incomplete.)

  • The band opened with an unknown song that may be a cover.
  • They played the intro to "Smells Like Teen Spirit" twice just to tease the disrespectful, male-dominated crowd.
  • For the first verse of "Come As You Are", Kurt just said "hey" over and over instead of singing the words.
  • During "Polly", Dave played a toy drum kit.
  • After "Polly", a fairly long, bass-driven jam was played.
