    NOTES: This setlist comes from a fan's account. The 'Tastefest' is exactly that: forty-some Detroit restaurants handing out samples on a downtown street, with three stages worth of entertainment. "Mac admits it's a little weird that the Bunnymen are performing at an outdoor festival, but once you've done it a few times, he says, you just close your eyes and everything's groovy."-

Washington, DC, United States; 9:30 Club
    NOTES: "The unsurprising set list was drawn largely from 1983-'84 and built to the traditional Bunnymen encore that uses 'Do It Clean' as the basis for a medley. Yet the sound was thicker, heavier and sometimes more raucous, which energized the new material and gave an unexpected kick to some of the older tunes." -- Mark Jenkins,

    I took as my starting point Steve Doughty's excellent and comprehensive Bunnymen Recordings site, and have filled in gaps using the Seven Seas Archive (which went back to January 1st, 1999 at the time I copied it all into text files), as well as the various other web pages and articles cited in my listings. This is still very much a work in progress. I have received a good deal of help from members of the Seven Seas and Bunnymen.com communities -- thank you all!
