Show #90 Wed Nov 3 1999 | Irving Plaza ~ New York, NY
17 Irving Place, New York, NY 10003. 10pm. Opening for The Creatures.
Ok, so get this..... We peformed three shows in one evening, in two cities. What happened was I had confirmed the Philly Museum show in May, and I was really excited to play at the Museum that houses so much of Duchamp's work. But then I got a call in October to open for the Creatures. Did it have to be the same date? But we're industrious, we can make it work! The way we did it was there were two sets of equipment, I loaded the gear at Irving Plaza in the morning, then we drove down to Philadelphia. The whole band performed the first set at the Museum. Then Elysabeth & Lisa rushed to the train station (with only minutes to spare) and went up to New York City, where they met our sound man (Matt Green, of Spahn Ranch) and set up everything for sound check. While they were travelling, Vicki & I played the second set as an instrumental duo. It worked quite nicely in the museum environment. Then Vicki and I raced to the train station and got up to NYC in time to play the show opening for The Creatures. What would have happened if we missed the train? I think Matt was going to stand in my place and hit the play button on the backing tracks, and fake that he was playing the synth. I cannot remember exactly, but it was the most hectic day of my life.
And it was my birthday the next day!
Yet, the driving and playing had not ended, yet. We went back down to Philadelphia:

The piece named "Raga Jog" (See set list to the left) was released as the intro to "Like a Dog" on The Scavenger Bride.

2234 S 13th., Omaha, NE 68101. As I typed this in, I thought to myself, "Really? We played Omaha! I can't remember this show at all!" But then I started thinking, and I recall that in the middle of our set, the electricity blew out to the stage. Somehow, I had a feeling it was a frayed electical cord, and I went back behind the stage with my flashlight and I was right. The power cord to the whole stage had fried. Their tech guy quickly fixed it. I remember everyone being really nice. Now I have to lay down, because my brain hurts from remembering this. With ???

<---- Show #57 Fri February 19 1999 | Pussycat ~ Lafayette, LA
120 N. Grand St., Lafayette, LA 70501. This one was straight out of David Lynch. We were playing at an ex-Feed Store. It didn't have a door, just a sheet hanging down. Oh, and it didn't have a bathroom. You could use the one at the old-folks bar next door, but it closed at around 9pm. And then you had to go and pee on the grain silo across the street. Well, dirt road, but what the heck, we'll call it a "street." There was no stage lighting, except for a single bulb. And a table lamp. So I set up the table with the lamp near the back of the stage, and Elysabeth or Lisa would sit at the table, when they weren't on a song. It was just so bizarre, it was wonderful. With Slow Motion.
