Captured live on the second day of the 1998 Bridge School Benefit, enjoy Eels unveiling new material, two days prior to their acclaimed second album Electro-Shock Blues release. The set opener, "Novocaine For The Soul" the song most responsible for gaining them initial exposure, is the sole exception of older material. Here E and Adam perform it as a duo.

Following this, Butch joins in for the remainder of the set, which ventures into the forthcoming Electro-Shock Blues album material, beginning with more delicate pieces like "3 Speed" and "Climbing To The Moon," before tackling death and mortality in "Last Stop: This Town" and "Hospital Food."
