The intro music again was the Mario Bros. theme, which got everyone laughing and into it. After warning, someone threw a bra onstage at Brandon and he kind of blushed and laughed and put it on the drum set. Vitamin started with the Kilmore and Jose beatbox intro, but slower than the one they usually do. Vitamin was unfinished and went into a cool jam featuring Mike doing some great guitar work and then eventually fell apart into "Hello" by Lionel Ritche. Nowhere fast began with a Walking On The Moon intro, mostly just from Ben though. Nowhere Fast was also unfinished and went into "X French T- Shirt" right before the break where it's just Brandon and Mike. Brandon was hailing Mike or Ben whenever they had a solo. A lot of fun to be there. Brandon made a comment something like "What are all of those big weird cups you guys have out there?" (referring to these mix drink funnels the venue was selling) "... I guess those are for the tornado or something..Dont drink too much, think about your liver's... anywho here's one called Circles."

Notes: Second full length performance of the Time Lapse Consortium.

The members of Hoobustank, as well as Carolyn Murphy and Chris Kilmore were in attendance among the 200 people at the show. Only Mike, Ben, Neal, Jose, and Brandon took the stage (there was no orchestra), with Brandon playing a quad Bongo set the entire night when he wasn't performing his vocal duties. While playing the bongos, he donned an oversized pair of hep cat sunnglasses. Mike acknowledged the crowd several times by rasing his Corona bottle. The five as a whole were laughing and smiling at each other the entire night. At several points, songs developed into full on jams and solos by Mike, Ben, Jose, and Neal. When brandon got up to sing ACSOG, one girl screamed out, "Sexy!". Mike replied to this by saying something quietly to brandon that made him laugh. After ACSOG, the band played a cover of a the old lounge song "Night & Day". Next on the list was a completely stripped, jazzed, and trippy version of "Are You In?" that lasted easilly 10 minutes. During this song, a fan in front yelled out, "Dude, You guys are tripping me out!" which got the band and the entire audience laughing and cheering. Later, the band played a jam that slowly evolved into Nirvana's Heart Shaped Box. What was particularly intersting about this is that Ben and Neal handled the melody of the song while Mike played the vocal harmony with his guitar (brandon did not sing.) They played the entire song this way, after which mike stepped up to the mic to address the crowd while Neal and Ben played Nirvana's "Come As You Are". He basically said, "thanks for coming, this is our last song," after saying something to brandon, he said, "Brandon wants me to rap, but I'm not a good MC...so..." After playing patrollin, the band left the stage, waving and shaking hands as they left. Ben stayed on a little longer to wave to fans, and got a bit of a personal ovation before finally leaving while holding up a peace sign. As soon as the band walked off stage, Larry Melero (mike's tech) Popped his head out the door and held up a finger, signifying one more song. Very shortly afterwards the band returned. Brandon said, "We're going to give this a shot. My father wrote this song." before going into Hello (of course he was only joking.)

Notes: Lollapalooza 2003
The band came out once again to the Super Mario Bros. theme songs. Ben wore a shirt that said, "Keep it Gay!"
Somewhere near Circles, Brandon removed his shirt, to which there was a loud, feminine applause. Retorting to the obvious attention, Brandon said, "You guys having fun out there yet?" More applause. "Are you guys wet out there yet?" There was a lot of laughter, and Brandon made a face as if to say, "did I just say that out loud?"
Brandon again introduced Ben to the crowd, who had another smashing solo in the middle of stellar.

During the show, people were passing out Trojan condoms for free, and people in the audience were blowing them up and making balloons out of them, so there were blown up condoms flying all over the place! One landed on stage and Bradon began to play with it like a toy submarine. During "Are You In?" instead of singing "It's so much easier, when sea-foam green is in fashion" he sang "It's so much easier, when blown up condoms float around!"
After "Hello", Brandon said "that's one of the many songs we wish we'd written."

When they first came out to play, the PA wasn't working, and when they started into "Warning" you couldn't hear Brandon. They stopped, then Brandon's mic came on, and he said, "Oh there we go....is it gonna stay on?" Then they started "Warning" over. Before "Nowhere Fast" they did a little of The Police's "Walking on the Moon".
