This show was 23 days prior to the release of their second EP 'Siamese Dream'. This concert at the Raymond Revue Bar features an intimate acoustic set. So intimate in fact, it opens with Darcy mentioning the record monetary loss the band is taking by preforming that night. Despite ticket sales, this performance finds the band in good spirits with a very engaged crowd.

Until recently, this show contained what many believed to be the only acoustic performance of Starla. Even though Billy admits that Starla is “a toughy” to play acoustically, the band goes for it…and it is amazing.

Chuck full of classic and soon-to-be-classic songs, a few covers, great banter, and a very entertaining 4-minute audience participation round to help decide which song ends the show, this is one show that should be on every fan’s iPod.
