This digital release was part of the one-year HOT FREAKS subscription started during the 2020 pandemic that delivered weekly emails on Tuesdays that contained sneak previews of brand new songs, plus rarities, never-before-heard tracks, demos, live concert recordings, rare photos and videos, recording secrets, exclusive swag offers, and many more surprises from deep within the Guided By Voices vaults. HOT FREAKS subscription cost was $100 for one year for exclusive access to downloads and streaming content (with easy-to-use apps for phones or computer).

*Note: You'll notice that the last encore sounds a bit lo-fi. Travis had already begun packing up, when the band surprised & delighted the crowd by coming back out. He switched to his iPhone voice memos to record the final performances of, “How Do You Spell Heaven” and “I Love Kangaroos”
