  • Kevin Shields of My Bloody Valentine was in the audience (and apparently the members of EMF and Claytown Troupe).
  • Jon Cohen of The FADER recalls an awkward moment from the gig: "Damon must've been feeling high on life because he climbed up the pipes that ran across the ceiling of the entire venue into the balcony with a megaphone in his hand during the band's rendition of "Oily Water." Needless to say it didn't last long: he literally fell into the lap of Charles Koppelman, the head of SBK Records, who would later give the band a lecture about taking their career more seriously."
