i like it how he goes all south-american heavy metal at the end.

you have to see what happens before to understand why d’arcy angrily kicks over her mic and why billy is smiling.

Yeah. I wonder when and where this was recorded, so we can check out the previous song, or the banter before this one. D’Arcy really looks agitated! :lol: And I can’t recall Billy ever \"grunting\" in a performance of X.Y.U. like he does here. And also, rubbing his guitar on a speaker… Truly epic performance of X.Y.U. anyway, I thought I just had to share this with you guys.

oh, this is a well known show and video: http://www.splra.org/wiki/index.php?title=Tsp1996-01-26

basically, before x.y.u., d’arcy addresses the crowd and says that the band regrets it that the only way they could play in brazil was with the help of a tobacco company (who sponsored the festival, or something).
then billy says "i would like to thank the tobacco company for the free footballs" and that pisses off d’arcy, obviously.

(apparently this show is often listed as 1996-01-27…)

If I’m right, the festival was on the 26, the broadcast on tv was on 27. So lots of places (SPFC, Blamo, boots like Vast Oceans) note this gig as 27. Also funny, many places mistype the venue/city as (Praca) Apoteose, Rio De Janiero. It should be Praça Da Apoteose, Rio De Janeiro. :lol:

or… probably not sexual to him more like spiritual… kinda like he is totally lost in the moment, lost in the music, like i always get when i listen to sp’s music, but when he is playing it onstage it is in front of everyone and if he has that moment everyone sees it. but it’s nothing to be ashamed of… there are people who understand what he is feeling and we think it is awesome…….. but the majority of the public may not?
i dunno…. that’s my interpretation…
