Mudhoney Tourbook, 2015
Tourbook

1/13/15 Neumo's. Seattle, WA (45 min)
Attendance: 550
Supporting: The Flesh Eaters
Soundcheck: Where is the Future, (Let's Drop in), This Gift, (Rock Bottom - by UFO)
Set: I Like it Small, Who You Drivin' Now, This Gift, 1995, Where is the Future, Flat out Fucked, Judgment Rage..., Sweet Young Thing, What to do with the Neutral, I'm Now, The Final Course, Chardonnay, The Only Son of the Widow from Nain
Notes: Mudhoney played this show to get the Flesh Eaters to come up and play Seattle along with their California shows, to commemorate the re-release of their 1981 A Minute to Pray, a Second to Die album. Previously, Mudhoney had gotten The Flesh Eaters (specifically, the Minute to Pray lineup - the band has had a lot of lineups) to play the day of the All Tomorrow's Parties festival that they curated, on 5/12/06. The band is introduced by Mark's wife from center stage. It's no "Ladies and gentlemen, the greatest rock 'n' roll band in the world," but it's pretty good. Mark is grinning from ear to ear when he talks about how great it is to play a show with the Flesh Eaters. For 'Sweet Young Thing,' Mark sings the fourth verse in the place of the second verse, so no one is quite sure where they're at in the song. Dan goes into the "breakdown" section right as Mark begins verse three, but recovers nearly instantly, and shares a smile with Steve as everyone gets back on track. Mark:

"We played with the line-up from this album at 2007's All Tomorrow's Parties. We were allowed to curate a day and we brought them over. That record A Minute To Pray, A Second To Die just got reissued on Superior Viaduct and they played a couple of shows in California. Danny Bland - a guy I knew from way back from the band Cat Butt, works very closely for Dave Alvin from Flesh Eaters [and The Blasters] - asked me if they came to Seattle, would we want to play with them and I was like: "Fuck yeah!"

They were great man. They exceeded expectations I think and there were a lot of people at the show who were probably not familiar with the record but were familiar with the guys. They're like "we like The Blasters, we like X" but it's a totally different beast to those bands. It's got more of a Captain Beefheart, early Dr. John feel to it with the marimbas on the record, the Steve Berlin sax (another record with sax!). It was kind of an anomaly at the time. It was part of the punk scene but it wasn't a punk record. There was this thing at the time that I confused it with at first - bands like 45 Grave and Christian Death and the Dance With Me-era TSOL where everything was kind of getting satanic. I initially lumped it in with that stuff but it's so much better and further ahead of the game than that.

The record for me was kind of a slow burn. I worked in a radio station and when it came in I put it on a cassette with a more normal hardcore band on the other side. I eventually found myself fast-forwarding through the hardcore side and just listening to A Minute To Pray, A Second To Die over and over again. It wasn't like initially "this is great!", it was more like "this is weird!" to a 19-year-old. Chris Desjardins' lyrics are awesome and dense and intense and pretty much like Nick Cave's. Both those guys - they don't write short, concise pop songs..."

1/16/15 The Palace Ballroom. Seattle, WA (40 min)
Attendance: 250
Set: Where is the Future, If I Think, 1995, This Gift, Broken Hands, I Like it Small, Chardonnay
Encore: In 'N' Out of Grace
Notes: Noted oenophiles Mudhoney play at a wine event that former manager Bob Whittaker is involved with. Given that it's a wine event, the crowd is fully liquored up and dancing, and they of course end their set with 'Chardonnay.' Cheers bring them back for an unintended encore, and given that they're already right at the 30 minutes they're scheduled to play for, Mark quips, "OK, we're gonna play a 28-second version of In 'N' Out of Grace."

4/2/15 The Moore Theater. Seattle, WA (45 min)
Attendance: 1,300
Supporting: The Sonics
Supported By: The Intelligence
Set: I Like it Small, Who You Drivin' Now?, This Gift, 1995, Where is the Future, Judgment Rage..., Sweet Young Thing, Touch Me I'm Sick, What to do with the Neutral, I'm Now, The Final Course, Chardonnay, The Only Son of the Widow from Nain
Mark with The Sonics: Shot Down
Notes: This is the second time that Mudhoney has played a gig with The Sonics, who they like so much (the first was on 2/2/13). Early in the set, they play 'Who You Drivin' Now?' - the song they wrote to be a fake Sonics song. After 'Where is the Future,' Mark says that "it's a great honor to play with the Sonics. And it's also awesome to play with the Intelligence." The average age at a Sonics show is not young, and the audience is seated for the entirety of Mudhoney's set (while also cheering enthusiastically). Mark mentions this after 'Touch Me I'm Sick' - "We're getting kind of old, too. I wish we had chairs. Dan's the lucky one ... [Dan takes his drum throne and gives it to Mark] ... That was our skit. We took a half-hour at practice, but we finally nailed it!" Mark comes out during the middle of The Sonics' set to sing 'Shot Down' with them. That's a song he sang often with the Sonics' cover band The New Original Sonic Sound (who were primarily active in 2000-2001). At the intended end of their set, The Sonics bring the guys out for a round of applause (and then Chris Ballew gets The Sonics to play another song). Also in attendance are Krist Novoselic and Matt Cameron. Steve:

It was really fun. We actually played with them a couple of years ago (2/2/13), but that concert really stands out as something extraordinary. The Sonics have a little found their renaissance and give some really cool live shows. They soon disappeared before there was a scene in Seattle, and 40 years later they return - they are a bit of a legends. ... They certainly inspired us musically. Their music is very guitar and hard, and their way of making a garage punk has undoubtedly influenced the sound that appeared later in the mid 80's. And when you think about it, there was not really anything else at that time - in fact, in the world. They are by far the hardest and wildest band from the 60's.

4/15/15 Mississippi Studios. Portland, OR
Notes: First a wine event, now this. Mudhoney played a private gig as part of the Craft Brewers Conference. With Washington having legalized marijuana, they're just one private gig away from the trifecta.

5/1/15 "Roses Stage". Roots & Roses Fetival. Lessines, Belgium
Supported By: Romano Nervoso, The Computers, Daddy Long Legs, Louis Barabbas & the Bedlam, The Glucks
Set: Into the Drink, I Like it Small, You Got it, Where is the Future, F.D.K., 1995, Judgment Rage..., Flat out Fucked, Sweet Young Thing, Touch Me I'm Sick, What to do with the Neutral, I'm Now, The Final Course, The Money Will Roll..., Chardonnay, The Only Son of the Widow from Nain
Encore: Here Comes Sickness, In 'N' Out of Grace
Notes: Steve, on this European tour:

Six weeks ... is pretty long for us anymore. We all have things going on outside of the band. We're all married and three of us have kids, so it's hard to be out on the road for too long. Since Guy joined the band in 2002, the most we've done is two or three weeks here and there. We've gotten smarter, though. We gave ourselves some days off in Europe this time so we actually got to see some of the cool things and places.

5/2/15 Le 106. Rouen, France
Supported By: White Hills, dDash, Barton Carroll
Set: You Got it, I Like it Small, Suck You Dry, Broken Hands, Inside Job, F.D.K., Beneath the Valley..., Judgment Rage..., Flat out Fucked, Sweet Young Thing, Touch Me I'm Sick, What to do with the Neutral, I'm Now, The Final Course, Chardonnay, Hate the Police, The Only Son of the Widow from Nain

Encore: If I Think, Beneath the Valley..., In 'N' Out of Grace
Notes: They focus on playing tonight and aren't particularly talkative. They do take a break between songs for Dan to fix his hi-hat, and when they finish, Mark introduces him with, "Ladies and gentlemen, Dan Peters, the hi-hat fixer."

5/4/15 Uebel. Hamburg, Germany
Supported By: Barton Carroll
Set: Poisoned Water, I Like it Small, Where is the Future?, You Got it, Suck You Dry, 1995, Beneath the Valley..., Where the Flavor is, Flat Out Fucked, Sweet Young Thing, Touch Me I'm Sick, What to do with the Neutral, I'm Now, The Money Will Roll..., The Final Course, Chardonnay, Hate the Police, The Only Son of the Widow from Nain
Encore: If I Think, Here Comes Sickness, In 'N' Out of Grace
Notes: "We played a pretty wild concert in Hamburg ... We played in an old Nazi fortress in Hamburg, and it was a pretty wild experience because it was so magnificent and historic. One thinks how such a building can still be standing after its history, but it is so massive that it can not collapse. It's built to withstand bombings, and it obviously made it even though it certainly was a huge target at the time."

5/28/15 ABC. Glasgow, Scotland
Attendance: 400

Encore: Suck You Dry, Here Comes Sickness, When Tomorrow Hits/In 'N' Out of Grace
Notes: The show is decently attended, but the venue can hold three-times as many people, sucking a bit of energy out of things. During the first five seconds of 'Poisoned Water,' Guy slaps an "access all areas" pass on Mark's back. Mark plays most of the set oblivious to the sticker on his back until it falls off at the end. Mark laments twice (at the end of the set, and during the encore) that no one arrived early enough to see Barton Carroll apart from "the smart kids in the front row." Though he does appreciate that everyone has "families, television, and internet polling" obligations as well.

Notes: Mudhoney is the mainstage headliner for the Seattle Rock 'N' Roll Marathon this year (though other bands played after them on the main stage, and there were bands all along the course), playing on the Seattle Center grounds not too far from the finish line near Mercer St and 2nd Ave. This stage is within spitting distance of other places they've played at the Seattle Center over the years. For example, just behind the stage is Key Arena (12/9/02 and 12/6/13), and just across the Fountain Lawn is where Bumbershoot places a stage (9/2/12). The audience divides itself into four strata. The people closest to the stage are definitely not dressed like they just ran a marathon, and came just for the free show. This includes a fair contingent of underage kids who are super stoked. Behind them is a cohort of exhausted runners and their friends, who are sitting down. In the third level is exhausted runners who are getting drunk before noon in the beer garden. And then there's a steady stream of exhausted runners who walk by the stage, check it out a little, then go on their way to collapse somewhere else. Speaking of morning drinking, this is the earliest Mudhoney has ever done a show (on at 11:10am), but that doesn't stop Mark and Steve from enjoying what Mark refers to as "breakfast Riesling," and Dan and Guy enjoying a beer. So, 3/5/92 remains the only show where everyone was stone cold sober. Mark also takes the chance after Touch Me I'm Sick to give "Congratulations to the winners [who were awarded on stage before Mudhoney started] ... and everyone who just showed up."

7/3/15 "Atlantic Studios Stage - All Tomorrow's Parties Iceland". Ásbrú. Keflavík, Iceland
Supporting: The Field, Godspeed You Black Emperor, Drive Like Jehu
Supported By: Iceage, Bardo Pond, White Hills, Oyama

Notes: Mudhoney plays the second day of this three-day festival. Fellow Sub Pop label mates Clipping. cancel at the last minute, and when Mudhoney plays, Mark ironically asks the crowd how they liked that band.

7/6/15 The Bowery Ballroom. New York City, NY

Encore: Into the Drink, Here Comes Sickness, When Tomorrow Hits/In 'N' Out of Grace
Encore 2: Hate the Police, Fix Me
Notes: The sold-out audience cheers loud enough to bring them back for a second encore. Mark comes out and says, "I thought we were done. I don't know, these guys seem to want to keep playing ... Hate the Police!"

7/7/15 Black Cat. Washington, D.C.
Attendance: 700
Supported By: Kid Congo Powers, The Pink Monkey Birds
Set: Suck You Dry, You Got it, I Like it Small, Oblivion, Inside Job, Blinding Sun, Get into Yours, 1995, Sweet Young Thing, Flat out Fucked, Judgment Rage..., Touch Me I'm Sick, What to do with the Neutral, I'm Now, The Final Course, You Stupid Asshole, Chardonnay, The Only Son of the Widow from Nain
Encore: Happy Birthday, Into the Drink, Here Comes Sickness, When Tomorrow Hits/In 'N' Out of Grace
Notes: Right as they hit the solo to 'You Stupid Asshole,' Mark does the standard, saying "guitar," and then he also says "bass," and motions to Guy, and "drums" and motions to Dan. When they come back out for the encore, Guy points out a girl ("somebody's got a question for you") in the front holding up a sign requesting that they sing 'Happy Birthday' for her. So, Mark does, making this the first time Mudhoney has done 'Happy Birthday.' Mark follows this up by repeating the second verse of 'Into the Drink' in place of the third verse. After the song, he blames it on the dry white wines he's been drinking - a Grüner Veltliner and a Muscadet.

7/8/15 Mr. Small's Theatre. Pittsburgh, PA

Encore: Into the Drink, Here Comes Sickness, When Tomorrow Hits/In 'N' Out of Grace, The Money will Roll... (w/Paul Bearer), Hate the Police, Fix Me
Notes: The crowd is excited during the openers, and then is nuts for the duration for Mudhoney's set. Dan jumps one song ahead and does the intro drum roll to '1995' when the rest of the band is expecting 'Get into Yours.' This leads Mark to livingly joke to the crowd, "Dan is usually a good reader." They get the song started alright, but then still can't finish it. During the second chorus, Steve has some sort of an electronics mishap (a blown circuit? a bad pedal? a disconnected cord?). They attend to that, talk about where they were in the song, and start it up from that spot. The third time's the charm and they finish nicely. Mark introduces 'You Stupid Asshole' as a love song. Right as they hit the solo, Mark does the standard, saying "guitar," and then he also says "bass," and motions to Guy, and "drums" and motions to Dan. For his encore entrance, Mark is caried up on stage by the Pissed Jeans' guitarist. It's been raining heavily outside, so Mark suggests that people get comfortable, and there may not be water in here, btu there is alcohol at the bar. Mark starts talking about how they first came to Philadelphia in '88 (11/2/88), and they played that night with a band called The Serial Killers. Then he brings Paul Bearer out to sing 'The Money will Roll...' with him. Then, before 'Hate the Police,' Mark notices a guy in a Dicks shirt, and says that, since there's a guy in a Dicks shirt, they should at least play 'Hate the Police.' They leave with Mark promising that they'll try to wait fewer than 12 years to come back to Philadelphia again.

Notes: The Obits were originally on this bill, then they broke up, so The Black Clouds are added. The silver lining of adding The Black Clouds is Mark comes out to sing 'Vice' with them during their set - a song he sings on their record After All.

7/20/15 Charles Smith Wines Jet City. Seattle, WA (75 min)
Supported By: Dead Moon, DJ Bruce Pavitt
Set: Suck You Dry, Into the Drink, I Like it Small, Broken Hands, Inside Job, Get into Yours, 1995, Where the Flavor is, Sweet Young Thing, No One Has, Judgment Rage..., Touch Me I'm Sick, What to do with the Neutral, I'm Now, The Final Course, You Stupid Asshole, Chardonnay, The Only Son of the Widow from Nain
Encore: Here Comes Sickness, In 'N' Out of Grace
Notes: Mudhoney plays the private opening of Charles Smith Wines Jet City - a winery in the Georgetown neighborhood (see their 1/16/15 perfomance for the winery). The winery is across the street from Boeing field, so landing planes could drown out the music, only the music is beyond loud and blows everything away. Take a cement floor and metal walls and a ceiling, and everything is very loud. But that doesn't slow down Charles Peterson and Bruce Pavitt from bopping around in front row center throughout the set. They pepper the set with appropriate songs, including 'Into the Drink,' 'Where the Flavor is,' and 'Chardonnay.' Mark is swigging straight from a bottle of Kung Fu Girl Reisling (a Charles Smith label) throughout the show, and Mark comments right before 'You Stupid Asshole,' "Mmmm, Reisling - a cool, refreshing drink!" (Mark also states that there's a wide range of Reislings, and this is not one of those sweet ones that would be troublesome to drink any more than a sip of.) Mark also points out Charles Smith rocking out next to Charles Peterson and comments, "Hey, Charles and Charles" - a wine joke, referencing the Charles Smith Charles & Charles label.

8/1/15 "Rock the Boat". Box Car Park. Everett, WA (55 min)
Attendance: 2,000
Supported By: My Goodness, Fauna Shade, Duke Evers
Set: Suck You Dry, I Like it Small, You Got it, Oblivion, Get into Yours, 1995, In 'N' Out of Grace, Sweet Young Thing, Judgment Rage..., Touch Me I'm Sick, I'm Now, The Final Course, You Stupid Asshole, Chardonnay, The Only Son of the Widow from Nain
Encore: Here Comes Sickness
Notes: Mudhoney plays an outdoor event on the Port of Everett waterfront. They start playing as the Sun is setting behind the Olympic Mountains across Puget Sound, creating a beautiful scene. A few boaters sound their airhorns after songs to show their appreciation, and Guy turns and thanks them. 'In N Out of Grace' is long. All the parts of the song are long. Especially long. And when they finish, Mark turns and shares a smile with tour manager Danny, perhaps because they broke the length record for that song. The audience area is a grassy field, and with little rain in the area this Summer, dancers quickly kick up dust. So, Mark jokingly asks, "Can someone turn off the smoke machine?" After the show, Mark comments that he could see the dust cloud coming for the band, and it reminded him of their 9/26/92 gig, where the audience created a dust cloud that came for the band, and caused him to cough up black matter during the show.

8/2/15 Slim's Last Chance. Seattle, WA (80 min)
Attendance: 400
Supported By: The Gallow Swings, Sin Driver
Set: Suck You Dry, Who You Drivin' Now?, I Like it Small, Broken Hands, Blinding Sun, F.D.K., Sonic Infusion, 1995, Sweet Young Thing, Flat out Fucked, Judgment Rage..., Touch Me I'm Sick, What to do with the Neutral, I'm Now, The Final Course, You Stupid Asshole, Chardonnay, The Only Son of the Widow from Nain
Encore: If I Think, Here Comes Sickness, In 'N' Out of Grace, Hate the Police
Notes: Mudhoney plays outdoors on a beautiful Seattle day in a too-small venue - to the point that there are people outside watching from behind the venue's wooden fence. Lukin is in attendance, enjoying the set and remarking that its not weird to see the other guys play without him - in fact, he can't remember how the songs go, so this is a nice reminder. After 'Sweet Young Thing,' Mark says "cheers" and the four of them click their drinks together (three beers, and then a cider for gluten-free Steve). Mark introduces 'You Stupid Asshole,' with "This is a traditional love song from American Samoa that was reinterpreted by some young men in the L.A. area." (The song was written by the Angry Samoans, who were from Los Angeles). The stage is setup so that the audience is looking straight at a giant sprinkler service company building next door, and when they finish the main set, Mark thanks the openers, "Slim's for finally letting us play here [see initial notes about venue size], and our sponsor, without who this would not be possible - The Columbia Fire Sprinkler System Service & Repair." Coming out of the drum break on 'In N Out of Grace,' Dan breaks one stick and loses the other, but somehow manages to keep the beat.

10/10/15 El Corazon. Seattle, WA (75 min)
Attendance: 750
Supported By: Zeke, Derelicts, Piston Ready, Redneck Girlfriend, Gerald Collier, The Tom Price Desert Classic, Shivering Denizens
Set: Into the Drink, Poisoned Water, I Like it Small, You Got it, Mudride, Get into Yours, 1995, Flat out Fucked, Judgment Rage..., No One Has, Touch Me I'm Sick, You Stupid Asshole, I'm Now, The Final Course, Behind the Door, (Chardonnay), The Only Son of the Widow from Nain
Encore: Here Comes Sickness, In 'N' Out of Grace
Notes: This show is a benefit for Eddie Spaghetti of the Supersuckers (Mudhoney's 1993 Spring US tourmates), who is being treated for cancer. They play the Circle Jerks' 'Behind the Door' for the first time. (They recorded the song in 2001 for a Circle Jerks tribute record that never happened, then they used it for a new Eddie Spaghetti benefit record). They hit the stage and start playing E (well, Eb, since they tune down) on their instruments, and Mark says "E is for Eddie!" After 'Touch Me I'm Sick,' Mark notes, "The last time we played with Zeke [11/16/07] was for a benefit, as well. We really need to play a more-positive show with Zeke. [He hears someone's comment.] Yeah, like a 'Fuck the pigs!' show!" Before debuting 'Behind the Door,' Mark promotes the Eddie-Spaghetti-benefit CD that it appears on, and mentions that they haven't played it since 2001 (when they recorded it). Then they get to 'Chardonnay,' and end up stopping it twice before they get to the first chorus. Dan is having a tough time remembering it. Steve and Guy try to refresh his memory by playing some of their parts, but it's a lost cause, and they move on. When they leave the stage, Mark jokes that they couldn't play 'Chardonnay' correctly because they were cursed by local vinter Charles Smith, who's in attendance, and for who Mudhoney has played two wine-industry gigs this year (1/16/15 and 7/20/15). They encore with a version of 'Here Comes Sickness' that transitions into 'In 'N' Out of Grace.' It's not quite the smooth transition of 'When Tomorrow Hits/In 'N' Out of Grace,' but it's something.

Notes on West Coast Tour: All the encores were drawn from Here Comes Sickness, In 'N' Out of Grace, Hate the Police, If I Think, The Money will Roll..., When Tomorrow Hits, You Got it, Mudride, and Fix Me (once or twice).

10/14/15 HiFi Music Hall. Eugene, OR (85 min)
Attendance: 150-200
Supported By: Ferns
Soundcheck: Beneath the Valley... (soundcheck possibly incomplete)
Set: Suck You Dry, Into the Drink, I Like it Small, Broken Hands, You Got it, Get Into Yours, 1995, Where the Flavor is, Flat out Fucked, Judgment Rage..., Touch Me I'm Sick, What to do with the Neutral, I'm Now, The Final Course, Behind the Door, You Stupid Asshole, Chardonnay, The Only Son of the Widow from Nain
Encore: If I Think, Here Comes Sickness, In 'N' Out of Grace, Hate the Police
Notes: This show takes place on a Wednesday night and isn't crowded, but the audience seems to have a great time. Steve noodles around on his guitar before 'Get Into Yours,' with Mark smiling and watching him play. Mark then says, "Ladies and gentlemen. Steve Turner. He's using both of his operational fingers." Before beginning their cover of the Circle Jerks' 'Behind the Door,' Mark says, "Alright. In the spring of 1982, my friend Paul Carlisle and a couple of other buddies piled into a car and drove down from McMinnville, Oregon to here, to WOW Hall, to see the Circle Jerks. And I'm, I don't know...19% sure they played this song that night?" Before 'Hate the Police,' Mark thanks some folks, including the people of Eugene, OreGAHN (a pointed joke re: pronunciation). At the end of Hate the Police, Mark calls out for 7 big chord hits to finish the song.

10/15/15 Harlow's. Sacramento, CA (80 min)
Attendance: 400
Supported By: The Troublemakers, SLA
Set: Poisoned Water, Suck You Dry, I Like it Small, Broken Hands, Inside Job, You Got it, F.D.K., 1995, Where the Flavor is, No One Has, Flat out Fucked, Judgment Rage..., Touch Me I'm Sick, You Stupid Asshole, I'm Now, The Final Course, Chardonnay, Behind the Door, The Only Son of the Widow from Nain
Encore: Mudride, Here Comes Sickness, In 'N' Out of Grace, Hate the Police
Notes: This is an enthusiastic crowd. Perhaps too enthusiastic, as a girl crawls on stage and sits right by his monitors for most of the show, and gently caresses his knee at one point. He does his standard policy of not engaging, so it doesn't proceed past that. The show is a bit of a reunion, as Mark notes from the Stage. It's promoted by the same guy who promoted them in Sacramento as far back as 1989, and on tour with Mudhoney is tour manager and sound man Adam, who promoted them in Chico in 1989.

10/16/15 Gundlach Bundschu Winery Old Redwood Barn. Sonoma, CA (75 min)
Attendance: 400
Supported By: Fuzz
Soundcheck: (Let's Drop in), Oblivion, Sonic Infusion
Set: Poisoned Water, Into the Drink, I Like it Small, Broken Hands, You Got it, Suck You Dry, Sonic Infusion, 1995, Where the Flavor is, Flat out Fucked, Judgment Rage..., (Jam), Touch Me I'm Sick/(Jam), What to do with the Neutral, I'm Now, The Final Course, Behind the Door, You Stupid Asshole, Chardonnay, The Only Son of the Widow from Nain
Encore: If I Think, In 'N' Out of Grace
Notes: The show takes place in a barn at a winery, which is a first as Mudhoney has never played a barn before. Fuzz was driving up from L.A. that day and was delayed by I-5 being closed due to a mudslide. So, Mudhoney headlines by going on first. Given the venue of a winery, they make sure to include all their wine-related songs ('Into the Drink,' 'Where the Flavor is,' 'Chardonnay'). They've got a psychedelic light show going on tonight (which they liked so much that they arranged for the same guy to do it in San Francisco and Oakland). Mark references this prior to 'Touch Me I'm Sick,' with, "I feel the most psychedelic version of this song ever coming on." This prompts Steve to start jamming a bit before they start the song, and he's joined in by Guy, then Dan and Mark. That's not enough jamming for them, so they go ahead and jam out the end of the song, too. As they finish their encore, Mark takes a chance to reminisce about his friend and college roommate (at Linfield), John Mini, who's in attendance. "We were both in school in Oregon and he's the first person to play Blue Cheer for me in '81/'82. And he pulled out this record and said, 'Check out what these crazy hippies did in the '60s. And it's been fucking fantastic ever since.'"

10/17/15 Crystal Bay Casino Crown Room. Crystal Bay, NV (80 min)
Attendance: 300
Set: Suck You Dry, Into the Drink, I Like it Small, Oblivion, Inside Job, Get into Yours, Sonic Infusion, Beneath the Valley..., Where the Flavor is, No One Has, Sweet Young Thing, Judgment Rage..., Touch Me I'm Sick, What to do with the Neutral, I'm Now, The Final Course, Behind the Door, You Stupid Asshole, Chardonnay, The Only Son of the Widow from Nain
Encore: Here Comes Sickness, In 'N' Out of Grace, Hate the Police
Notes: A day after Mudhoney plays a barn for the first time, they play a casino for the first time, and Nevada for the first time in nearly 22 years (since 12/2/93 Reno, NV). This one is located at the north end of Lake Tahoe, just across the California-Nevada border. 'Touch Me I'm Sick' has the third verse sung in place of the first verse, then the third verse again in its proper spot, for good measure. It's rare when a band can play its song about cannibalism and have it be apropos, but with the show taking place not far from where the Donner Party spent their infamous winter, playing 'The Final Course' is fitting. When people applaud their cover of The Circle Jerks' 'Behind the Door,' Mark says, "Thank you. I'd like to take credit for that, but I can't." Soon after that, they break for the encore, and a large part of the crowd leaves - perhaps thinking that the show is over. Over the past few nights, Mark has been calling out numbers for the number of big chord hits to end songs. Usually it's around 7, but tonight he tries to get the guys to do 18 at the end of 'In N Out of Grace.' He gets no takers in the band, and laughs about it: "Oh, come on!" Before 'Hate the Police,' Mark notes some signs posted for the audience on the stage monitors: "There's these signs that say, 'Please, nothing on the stage.' And I think we've lived up to that." After the show, the guys mingle on the casino floor, which is directly outside the showroom - some of them gambling a tiny bit, and all of them hanging out with fans.

10/18/15 The Chapel. San Francisco, CA (80 min)
Attendance: 500
Supported By: Fuzz, Ex's with Benefits
Set: Suck You Dry, F.D.K., I Like it Small, Broken Hands, Who You Drivin' Now?, You Got it, Get into Yours, 1995, Where the Flavor is, Flat out Fucked, No One Has, Touch Me I'm Sick, What to do with the Neutral, I'm Now, The Final Course, You Stupid Asshole, Behind the Door, Chardonnay, The Only Son of the Widow from Nain
Encore: Here Comes Sickness, In 'N' Out of Grace, Hate the Police (w/Jello Biafra)
Notes: This show is very sold out, with an enthusiastic crowd for a Sunday night. Mudhoney was going to play two shows in San Francisco, but there was a mixup that prevented that, so they booked other shows to fill out the tour. At one point, Mark references this from the stage, joking that they should've played San Francisco twice what with a crowd like this. Several people important to the band are here tonight, including Alex Shumway (drums in Green River), Todd Cote (booking agent), and David Katznelson (A&R during the Warner Bros. years). Before 'In N Out of Grace,' Mark goes to the edge of the stage on Guy's side and talks to Jello Biafra, who's right up front. Then, when that song ends, he brings Jello up to sing on 'Hate the Police' (they both sing the entire song). Jello had previously sung the song with Mudhoney at 1/6/12 Denver, CO, but that was less planned, as he just walked on stage during the song. For tonight, Jello had wanted to do some Sonics songs, but Mudhoney doesn't have any rehearsed, so loose plans are made to do that next time Jello plays a Seattle show.

10/19/15 Glamarama-Rama. Oakland, CA (20 min)
Attendance: 10
Set: I'm Now, The Final Course, Behind the Door, You Stupid Asshole, Chardonnay, The Only Son of the Widow from Nain, (Oscar Meyer Theme Song)
Notes: This was a performance for a live stream via Pressure Drop TV, which took place at 2pm, before the evening show. The venue is a hair salon, only the salon didn't shut down for the performance, so for example, over Guy's right shoulder is a middle-aged woman getting her hair colored. They do the "Mark sans guitar" part of their regular set - perhaps because it means that they don't have to set Mark's guitar up. During the instrumental break in 'The Final Course,' Mark takes the opportunity to sit in one of the salon's dryer chairs, as if he's getting his hair done. After the performance, the guys are interviewed by David Katznelson, the man who signed them to Warner Bros., for a fun 10 minutes. He starts by asking Steve, "If you could sing one song, what would it be?" leading to Steve to sing the "My baloney has a first name" part of the Oscar Meyer theme. When asked about what the current era of the band is (e.g., as opposed to the Warner Bros. era), Steve says it's the "day job and children era." He also asks Mark and Steve about how Steve said he'd only be in a post-Green River band with Mark if he played guitar, but Mark played no guitar for that whole set. They laugh about it, and Steve talks about how the other guys saw him singing with DKT/MC5 circa 2004, "and that was pretty rad, too."

10/19/15 Starline Social Club. Oakland, CA

Encore: You Got it, Here Comes Sickness, In 'N' Out of Grace
Notes: 'Chardonnay' has a false start, and Mark says that they've done this before, and all he needs is a sip of wine to get it right. As they leave the stage after the main set, Mark thanks the crowd for coming out on a, "Tuesday! Tuesday! The best night for rock 'n' roll! Fuck that Friday and Saturday shit!" When they get back for the encore, someone has thrown a third dollar bill on stage, after two had been thrown on stage during the main set. This isn't enough for Mark: "Come on, downtown L.A. is revitalized. I know you've got money, I can see it. Even in Portland, ME they threw twenties. Not twenty cents. Oh, a ten. Thank you, sir." And having received a ten-dollar bill, they start back with the music. They leave the stage with Mark thanking the Freeks and Fuzz, and starts to thank the crowd individually until the task becomes too much: "Thanks to you, and you, and you, and you ... ah, fuck it."

Encore: When Tomorrow Hits, If I Think, You Got it, In 'N' Out of Grace, Here Comes Sickness, Hate the Police (encore possibly out of order)
Notes: This is a town of 350 out in the Southern California desert, and the 300-person showroom is packed, so there's probably a fair number of out-of-towners who came out to see the show tonight. The band is nearly set up on the floor and the ceilings are super low, giving it the feel of an old school club show. At the end, Mark thanks the venue and adds, "This place rules!"

10/24/15 The Casbah. San Diego, CA

Encore: When Tomorrow Hits, If I Think, You Got it, In 'N' Out of Grace, Here Comes Sickness, Hate the Police (encore possibly out of order)
Notes: The venue was packed and the crowd was rowdy. Late in the set, Mark stops a song when someone in the crowd knocks the mic into his mouth to let everyone know that he "loves [his] teeth more than he loves [the audience]." He also takes the time to thank everyone several times, and note what "a special place" the Casbah is, where they've had consistently great shows over the years.
