– Original proto-vocalist for 2nd Best, Tony Pennuto, gave an opening eulogy to start the night off, which goes down in history as a classic 2nd Best moment. Never forget what to do with a spoon if you can find it.
– The setlist for this show was notable for a few reasons. Original singed Brad Johnson was in attendance which allowed the band to perform some older songs like Yankee, Carpe Diem, and he jumped on stage for Hope as well. It was also the only time on record that 2nd Best performed The End, the final studio track on Put Your Heart Where Your Mouth Is, which was never really meant to be played live but they pulled it off! Paul smashed his bass at the end of the song to the surprise of many! Although, it may have been obvious that was going to happen when it was seen that he switched from his signature skeleton bass to some old piece of crap prior to the start of the song.
– Superfan Jaylee joined the band to sing So Clear, an acid jam that didn’t really fit the style of the band’s live performances. The band teased the song but wasn’t really going to play it but Jaylee came to the rescue and offered to sing the song!
– Emotions ran high during this show, and after the closing number These Autumn Stars, it was a real sad-fest in that room with people crying and looking at the floor, unable to make eye contact.
– Audio for the show was operated by none other than Quad City music scene veteran Wurm and was able to record the entire set! The audio recording is quite good and captures the performance well, however, the performance of 928 suffered audio issues and only the first 60 seconds or so was captured to tape.
– TJ was rather talkative during this show, which was entertaining. The banter is probably better than the songs.
– This was it! The final show! PSYCHE!!! Although it was sad to see Shane leave, TJ & Paul weren’t ready to throw in the towel and behind the scenes they’d been working on what’s next…
