January 18, 1998 Oklahoma City, OK VZD'S
Setlist: (As remembered 7 months later)Puss
Yes, I only remember three songs. This was the first JL concert I went to and I believe their first time in Oklahoma. Coming to this show I only had Pure, Head, and the Puss/ Oh, the Guilt single. So this concert I'm not able to remember much but here is what I remember. The place was pretty crowded. VZD'S is pretty small I think, and is a bar. I was surprised that it was an all ages show. 21 and over wore braclets and ages under that, your hand was x'd. I know the first song was Puss, and Yow instantly was passed back to the back of the place. Later Yow asked if the crowd wanted them to play some Marilyn Manson songs. The stage was really small. It should be called a platform. Well some drunk girl got on the very small stage in front of Sims and decided to dance. Of course she had little room and fell into Sims as he was playing. He quickly threw her off the stage, the band stopped and Yow said "we quit". People started to yell out various comments, then he finished he sentence..."that song." Some drunk guy up front was trying to start fights.
That's all I remember except after the show the band walked out and went to the entrance of the club. So me and maybe a two or three people followed. It was winter of course and Jim had tons of steam coming from his shirt. Then sat by the window then it looked like someone left a freezer open. Some old guy had the band sign a poster which he probably sold the next day. I was next to Duane and Sims and someone asked Duane if they would do an encore and he said they weren't loud enough. Then someone said "well you are in Oklahoma." Someone asked him more about idiot trying to fight everyone, and he said yeah there's a lot of alcohol in that crowd." Oh and someone said they saw them in 1994, and Duane asked where and I think she said Norman, then said the last JL album she had was Down. Duane told her she was one behind and should get the new one. I don't know if you care about any of this but that's all I remember, then I went home.
