Last night (10-27-2000), I went to see the Atlanta show. They had Teeny Shiny for sale so I got a copy; I put a track from it on the Multimedia page.

The set list was as follows (take the Teeny Shiny songs' order with a grain of salt; not having heard the album yet, I had to write down descriptions of songs rather than song titles):
 1. Scratch or Stitch
 2. F.D.C. for short
 4. Free the Bee
 5. Ethar Twisted
 6. Shoot the Moon
 7. Tapir's Flown Away
 8. (noise improv thing)
 9. First Contact to Planet Q
10. Warp, Back, Spin
11. Third Attack
12. Cub, Not Cube
13. Flash Cube, Or Eyeball
14. Circle-Jack (Chase the magic words, lego lego)
15. Are You Gonna Go My Way (Lenny Kravitz cover) /
     Uncontrollable Urge (Devo cover)
16. Lost in Mirror
17. Spathic!!
18. Picnic in Panic
19. Plot in a Pot (encore)
