Show #4 of the Vultures Eastern US Tour.
Show #23 of the Midnite Vultures Tour.
Live debut of "Get Real Paid."
MV Tour debut of "Lord Only Knows."
The very first live "Get Real Paid"! Beck admits they're feeling "auspicious" in never having played it before, and dedicates it to "the robots." Sounds really great with the background singers, and Roger and DJ Swamp get to groove on all the sound effects and synths and scratching.; As perfect a "Jack-ass" as I think I've heard live.; A cool "Sexx Laws" ends with Beck singing "I've been working since I was 3 years old / I've been a lifeguard, stewardess, waitress, typist / I've done it all / I've never picked cotton / Let's go / Empty parking lots, empty wallets / That's not my style." The "cotton" line is a Johnny Cash ref. Not sure where the "empty wallets" line comes from, if anywhere.; "Beercan" is played because someone requested it.
