    **During The 2001-> Art Jam, the band members take turns painting large designs at the side of the stage. Then, the crowd "carries" the pieces of this design to the side of the venue where it is assembled and hoisted for eveyone to see onto a tower. This wood tower is tall and covered in painted plywood and has been built during the two shows.

    As Harry Hood goes into the Jam, Trey again asks Chris to turn the lights off, and the band jams while the front section has a gigantic Glow Stick War. Trey tells the crowd at the end of the Jam to "go and get more of those, because that was cool.",

    **During Tweezer Reprise, they burned the entire assembled design to the ground.
