The music was mondo intense --- almost more intense than its performers at first --- and proved why this band is one of the major progenitors of alternative rock, and still remains on top. Material from its most recent release, "Great Escape Artist," was dished out liberally among the hits. The band opened with the new track "Underground" before diving into "Mountain Song," which sent several in the audience into a panty-wetting frenzy. The stage set was a sexed-up Warhol carnival with live girls punctuated by cinematic ones.
