Before the show, there were several spontaneous recordings made by the band. First Rivers recorded himself playing and singing My name is Jonas, to test out the recorder. Then, during the car ride to the show, Karl pressed 'record' as a random jam sing-along broke out. The guys plus Patrick Finn all sang various Smiths songs, trying to out-Smith each other. The 'medley' even included Morrissey's solo b-side track "Hairdresser On Fire"!

... ([During "The Biggest Animal,"] Rivers was heard commenting "this is a Fuzz song...by one of our favorite bands". This refers to the songs original incarnation as a song by the Rivers/Pat band Fuzz, which was active in early 1991. Several Fuzz songs lived on as weezer tracks for awhile but were later dropped.)

This show was 'bootlegged' by Karl, who used a cheap handheld voice recorder to capture the show. the tape used was the same as had captured the pre-show stuff, and all survives today.
