Trey sand background), UM BOP (Trey made a joke and said Page would have to sing that one. Then they started playing the chordes, and Trey announced:"Fish will now do his version of James Brown singing hansen's Um Bop." It was halarious! Fish was singing things like "I'm an 11 year old sex machine", and "Too hot in the hot tub.") Now Trey announces that they are going to invite people up on stage and have a LIMBO KARYOKE CONTEST. He bends over a mic stand as the limbo stick. People came up to limbo, and some people came up and sang: ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST (except the guy sang it as "Another One Rides The Bus") STONED ME (Van morrison. Sung by a kid who apparently sings in a band. It was really beautiful, and Fish sang backgroung vocals) ONLY SHALLOW (by My Bloody Valentine. Trey said this was one of his favorite tunes, and he was rockin out. This was the only tune sung by a girl) By this time they were down to 2 girls in the limbo contest, so Trey announces the finals were about to begin: DAY-O (no guest vocalist.
