Ed says the Yeastie Girls are a feminist punk band from San Francisco and he does a rap-style improv with a drum beat provided by Matt: “We’re the Yeastie Girls, with yeastie power, We don’t shave and we don’t shower …” Ed leads into ‘Off He Goes’ saying this is what’s it’s like to be his best friend. They play ‘No Way’ thanks to the guys down front with a sign and Ed jokingly says he had seen the “No Way” sign at every show and “I don’t want to have to see that fucking sign again” (laughter) and they play it. (He also saw a “Lowlight” sign and responded with a confident “no.”) Before ‘RVM,’ Ed says that he remembers playing it at the Fox Theatre the last time they were in Atlanta and that he thought it was on Easter and that “… was when I believed in God, that was a long time ago.” Ed asks if anyone is coming tomorrow night to see The Beasties and he says he’s going. ‘Talk About The Passion’ and ‘The Wrong Child’ are R.E.M. songs (R.E.M. being from neighboring Athens, GA). Ed is very crowd-friendly and comes into the crowd during ‘Porch.’ The security guard seemed less than thrilled to go after him. [A shirt is tossed onstage reading “stop skateboard harrassment” and Ed says, “Oh, you have that down here, too!” following with, “Well, I think we need to stop concert harrassment,” leading to more comments about security being too tight the previous night (NC) and tonight.] He says we were well behaved and their tactics weren’t necessary. Stone screws up the beginning of ‘Black’ and Ed jokes that it was the first time they’d ever played it. Mike’s ‘Black’ solo is wonderful. During ‘Yellow Ledbetter,’ Ed changes the lyrics to “… actually, I’d like to stay.”
