Show Information:

Sometimes misdated as 11/29/1988. Live Skull and Jack Scratch opened.

Recording Information:

Excellent audience recording. It's such a clear recording that it's often mistaken as a soundboard. This show is frequently cited by fans as one of the best JA live recordings out there, both in performance and sound quality. It has spread widely thanks to being released on the bootleg CD Trip Away. There is also a less common, pre-bootleg recording which includes 49 seconds of warm up at the start of the show omitted from the CD. A few songs from the show were also put out on the bootleg CD Paraphernalia.

Notable Moments:

Perry shouts "Romeo" several times during "Whores" for some reason.

"Forgive my fucked-up-ness, I did not plan it this way. But as long as I can stand, then everything's ok."

This show includes one of the earliest performances of "Bobhaus", introduced by Perry. "For your listening pleasure, we do a combination Bob Dylan / Bauhaus song entitled 'Bobhaus'."

"Pigs" improv:
"Follow that light. It leads outside. Way outside. Outside of the moon. There is a tune. April and June. It's 10:14. I don't feel like I'm here and it's 10:14. And it's 10:14. And it's 10:14."

At the start of "Had a Dad":
"Fuck me. I smell like... like, what? GG Allin!"
