    • "Shoehorn With Teeth" featured Marty Beller on the hotel desk bell
    • Hey Mister DJ featured an awkward fade-out (with an intro about how performing fade-outs live is "dramatically ineffective")
    • While Fingertips appeared on the set list, Why Does The Sun Shine was performed instead.
    • John Flansburgh apologized to Canadian instrumental rock act Shadowy Men On a Shadowy Planet for their last Alberta show, in which everything that could go wrong did go wrong, as also quoted in The YY Scene:
      “It was probably, easily in the Top 10 of worst shows we’ve ever done,” he says with a laugh. “There were so many things that were so crazy about it. The first that was strange is that we were afforded no ability to soundcheck and we were playing on all rented backline, so none of the gear was our gear … And we were playing in almost pitch darkness, there was no light onstage. I didn’t know where the volume knob was. "
