Short set at the Association for Independent Music conference in Atlanta.
The four day conference was held at the Marriott Marquis and featured performances each night by artists currently on independent labels. These performances were only open to AFIM members and members of the press. JEB was the final performance to close out the conference. John and his bandmates took the stage at about 12:40 am and played a 45 minute set to about 100 people in a small conference room in the lower level of the hi-rise hotel. The band utilized their full stage setup despite playing a tiny room where John's amplifiers came about six inches from touching the ceiling. "I'd be interested to see what's going on at the switchboard right now ... I'll bet you there are some pissed off people in some of these suites," drummer Steve Luongo remarked during the extremely loud late night performance. The setlist included mostly "Who" stage numbers. The show began with an up-tempo "The Real Me", after which John proclaimed, "That was a little faster than our usual version" as he gave Luongo a look of exhaustion. But the band was just getting warmed up. After a few technical difficulties, they followed with "Summertime Blues". Entwistle replaced the lyrics "I'd like to help you son but you're too young to vote" with "I'd like to help you son but I'm too busy getting a blow job." Next came an extended version of "My Wife" with John singing vocals, followed by an incredible version of the Johnny Kidd tune "Shakin' All Over". During the song, guitarist Godfrey Townsend forgot the lyrics to the second verse leaving John to sing the parts he could remember. This was followed by a long dueling solo exchange between Luongo and Entwistle. Next came "Young Man Blues" with an opening solo by Townsend. The band then left the stage but quickly returned for "Heaven and Hell" to close the set. The crowd watched the show dumbfounded as Entwistle ripped through runs most bass players could only dream about. The show was for all intents and purposes, one long Entwistle solo which he seemed to enjoy to the fullest at this one-off show.
