Thanks and Ashley for the setlist & comments!

“I was there and added the songs to a playlist on my iPod whilst dancing along :)
Finished with a Kick Out The Jams Reprise.
More Bad Times also had him pause to explain he was a frog and his ex was a supermodel so the relationship was doomed from the start, but he still wished there were “More Bad Times”.
Ladybug was dedicated to his wife that used to be his fiancée but is now his wife. Between Peaches and We Are Not… they had a pause as they said that would happen when you flip the vinyl over to the other side back in the day as their eponymous debut was released on vinyl.
The gig was great! :D” – Ashley

  1. I’ll try and get the final vids uploaded today (sunday)…love the way the info is presented here folks and sorry for my singing on the vids but how can you not sing along to PUSA?

  2. Thanks for your kind words, and videos. :) I’ve been doing this for couple of years now for each PUSA concert. Best way to get user interaction. It’s also much easier to share these “specials” on Facebook, Twitter etc.

    Main site for the 2012 concerts is located at It’s much more faster, and when I get enough info, I will update each show over there too. There are tons of stuff to read on those 1975-2012 concert pages. I even have to use search on my own site. :)

  3. all videos finally uploaded…sorry it took so long
