8. What are "Loser" shows?
Dates marked as being "Loser" shows are dates where Beck's old band "Loser" played. Loser consisted of:

Steve Hanft - Vocals
Beck - Guitar, Vocals
Mike Tollman - Bass (1992)
Claire Crespo - Bass (1992-1994)
Moses - Drums (1992)
Lisa Dembling - Drums (1992-1994)
Loser existed from 1992 until 1994, performing songs written by Steve and Beck, until they changed their name to Liquor Cabinet to avoid confusion with Beck's "Loser" single. Beck then left the band and was replaced with Thomas Hendrix, of "Kill the Moonlight" fame (Thomas is the "I'm A Driver, I'm a Winner..." sample in the song Loser).

Opening up select local Beck shows, Liquor Cabinet (then later Tommy and the Demons) existed until 1996, when they broke up and and transmogrified into Sexy Death Soda, who put out one record, "California Police State", on Bong Load Records. Beck would sometimes jump onstage and jam with SDS at their L.A. shows.
