This show was a benefit for VPIRG. Esther contained a Dixie tease from Trey. Alumni contained additional lyrics. I Didn't Know featured Fish on trombone. I Didn't Know and McGrupp included sound effects from an electronic drum machine. Fish played Call to the Post on the woodblock after Slave. A fan identified the song and Trey said he won a date with Fish. SOAM included a drum solo. A recording of the second set circulates with AC/DC Bag and Possum as the encores, but they are from a different source than the rest of the recording, and thus may have been filler. (An early setlist from the 1990s, as well as the setlist, do not list any encores for this benefit show.)
