Notes: After Cool Place To Park, there is a couple of minutes of the band backstage talking to each other and the cameraman, meaning that this video was filmed for the band. It's also mentioned that there were other people in the audience filming that weren't with the cameraman, so there are more than one version of this video out there.

There has been some debate over who the GWAR Woman is in this video. It doesn't appear to the brown haired Lisa Harrelson, who was the original GWAR Woman, and neither does it appear to be Danyell Stampe, who has played Slymenstra since at least 1989. According to BalSac, it probably is Collete, who briefly played the role in the interim between the other two.

Oderus's now has his full face mask, but it is still crude and pig-like. Sexecutioner's mask is also an earlier version.

Ham On The Bone is a slower version than what will later appear on America Must Be Destroyed. Years Without Light is also a little different, but the drummer fucks up in the middle of it and aborts the song.

I recently tracked down a better copy of this show than I previously had, and it includes one more song (Rock N Roll Party Town) as well as nearly 15 minutes of backstage footage, where you can see most of the band members running around out of costume, talking about the show.
