Leg: Mellow Gold North American Tour 2 (West)
Venue: Cabaret Metro
Country: United States
This show was a well-known VHS bootleg WAY back in the day. I got a copy in maybe 1997 or so, and watched the heck out of it. Fortunately, someone has digitalized and put it on Youtube! It is Beck at his early-days punk rock finest, and pretty amazing that someone filmed his show like this (it's not like smart phones existed back then).
Earliest known live version of "Minus." The only known live version of "Pink Noise (Rock Me Amadeus)"! Beck mentions that "Cyanide Breath Mint" is his new single on K Records (never happened though). People seem to be chatty and noisy during the acoustic set, but get into it during "One Foot." Beck seems sorta zoned out for some of these songs, but he gets some energy after the acoustic set. "Spanking Room" and "Beercan" are my favorites. Joey literally sets his drums on fire at the end.
I believe that the other musicians who join the band for "Jimmy Carter" are opening act, Trumans Water. (Unsure their names and who is playing what there.)
