This was captured at the Hawaii version of the traveling Smokeout Festival, organized by Cypress Hill, and shows an injured Eric Melvin doing his best not to disapoint the crowd despite his obvious limitations. The always animated guitar player had gotten hurt on stage just days earlier, but vowed not to miss the Hawaii date.
From what I recall, both Suicidal Tendencies and the Kottonmouth Kings were supposed to play this show as well, but neither actually did because the show was moved back by a week or so.
