I have the set list from The Cure's show at Perkins Palace (now called Raymond Palace) on 8 August 1983, in Pasadena, California. I was at the show, and I lifted the list off of Robert Smith's monitor after the show. Unfortunately, I cannot find my ticket stub to help prove the legitimacy of this item. However, if you were at the show, you may recall that Robert Smith's amp blew up mid-set and caused a lengthy delay in the proceedings---for which he apologized at length (I thought he was going to cry!!) The list is written on a deli plate; the wine/food stains are original !!!:
The set list verbatim [my edits in brackets];
Figurehead / In your house / M / Drowning Man / Cold / Hanging garden / Siamese twins / Primary / 3IB [three imaginary boys] / At night / 100 years / I lay / Train [Jumping someone else's...] / Forest / Porn [ography]
NOG. [I do not to what this refers; my memory of the show is that Pornography was the last song]
