Part of the 3-show “Fountain of Filth ’80” tour, which featured a totally unique setlist. Performances included early version of the Freedom of Choice Theme/Whip It, and rare performances of U Got Me Bugged and Fountain of Filth.

This particular show also featured DEVO opening for themselves as DOVE, the Band of Love. This is the third of three DOVE performances. Jesus is the same song as Beaulah, as heard on Live: The Mongoloid Years, but with the name changed.
