- Other performers: Trusty (opening act).
- Joy Ritchey: "I remember driving some of us to Memphis the night before this show to see Green Day at the Antenna. I took tons of photos but gave them away awhile ago to a disabled kid here who loves them or I'd send some to Richard to post. I think Billie Joe was interviewed that night after the show for Fluke. Anyway, they were really nice to us. Like Jason said, after the show in LR the next night there was a party at Catherine's. I remember a very competitive game of catagories on the diving board. Green Day wrote, I don't know in what, maybe chalk?, a big thank you and love you to Catherine and everyone for being so hospitable before they left that night. The next year they played again and almost as soon as they got on stage they asked if she was there. But she was out to dinner with her parents, so no pool party that year."
- Jason White: "Step By Step and crew had met them briefly after they were too late for our show in Memphis a year before on their first tour. Now Tre was in the band and in full effect. They were great. They had just gotten robbed in New Orleans and had no money and were wearing borrowed clothes. Billie Joe had on a shirt with a pig on the front and back. He announced a new song called "One For The Razorbacks... and I'm not kidding." After the show, everyone went swimming at Catherine McCrae's house. A familiar post-show ritual that summer."
- Burt Taggart: "Green Day lands in Little Rock for the night to a sold out show in the steamy back room of Vino's. In a strange twist of fate, Chino Horde's Jason White ends up on stage to help sing on the Operation Ivy cover "Knowledge". Some 12 years later, Jason will join them onstage again, this time hired by Green Day as a second guitarist on their Warning tour."
- Richard Matson: "It's kind of hard to picture Green Day playing to 300 kids in a dingy LR backroom today, but in 1990 the band was a little known pop-punk three piece out of Oakland with songs about meeting girls at the library. I'm pretty sure this was the first time any of us had seen a performer spits lugis in the air and catch them in his mouth."

Jason White: I was walking down the street one say and, uh, the dog decided to sniff my crotch and I thought that I, uh, you know, I said, "Wait a minute". I don't like dogs, why are they doing this to me and this other little girls they were with the dog and they were going, "God, you have a nice dog, and a very pretty dog, I like your dog", and I was like, "Wait a minute, you know, I.. I don't like this dog. This dog's sniffing my crotch". And I couldn't think of anything better to do, I mean. This is like a bad, bad joke isn't it? Yes, so anyway, I'm... I was walking. OK, so what's the difference between a hen and a chicken? There isn't any. Jesus Christ, what do you think, I am Ghandi or something? Alright, alright. This next joke goes out to, uh, Jason White. Wait, what's the difference between one eye and two eyes? I don't know, Jesus Christ! Isn't that amazing?
