Similar to 11/9/91 Tower Records appearance. Small stage is set up in record stores and band performs a short, informal, excellent acoustic set. Ed sings with no mic for half the show. He is hoarse form seven shows in seven days and he ad libs a line in ‘Alive’ that garners a laugh from the crowd: “Is something wrong she said … of course there is yeah … I have no voice he said …” Someone in the crowd comments on Ed’s bandaged hand and he tells them he hurt it Tuesday (two nights before in New York at the Roseland) bashing Dave’s cymbals. The small audience calls out requests so PJ does ‘Oceans.’ They strum a bit of Nirvana’s ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ before ‘Porch.’ Ed is wearing his white Doc Martens (the same ones in the photo on the cover of the Australian ‘Even Flow’ CD single that got a lot of attention at the time.) Booksigning and pictures follow the set.
