This weekend just gone, I saw Veruca Salt at the Rosie. To put it quite frankly, it was the best gig of the year and maybe one of the best of my life, since this was the original line-up of the band that most people present wouldn't have ever seen in the past, not even back in 1997 when they had Stacey Jones on drums. Saturday night's line-up was the one from their 4-track EP *Blow It Out Your Ass It's Veruca Salt*, which features a moment where the band introduces itself:
"Hi, I'm Louise ... I'm Nina ... I'm Jim ... and I'm Steve ... We're Veruca Salt ... and you're listening to 'Blow it Out Your Ass'."
I don't see any setlists up yet from Saturday night, but going by the one from a Sydney show, I can sort of maybe guess at the Perth one:
- One More Page of Insincerity Please (I know this was played first ... it was a b-side written by Nina back in the day. WOOOO! NINA'S BACK!)
- It's Holy (new song, AWESOME)
