It was only their second gig with John Frusciante in the band and sitting behind the kit was Dead Kennedy DH Peligro. This show was part of the American half of the "Uplift Mofo Party Plan" tour which actually began with a completely different line up. Only a couple of months earlier with Hillel Slovak on guitar and Jack Irons playing drums, not that long after this footage was shot Hillel would be dead and Irons left the band soon after. But, the shows had been booked and the band HAD to play, so Frusciante and Peligro were drafted in on VERY short notice and the band had something to prove. You can already tell that they were right there on the edge, this band was going to be HUGE.
