The performance on June 29, 1994 took place at the Squeeze in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, United States of America. The listening party for the band's debut album, Portrait of an American Family, was publicized as "the social event of the season," where Marilyn Manson unplugged for their "tribute to 80's New Wave." Three of the songs they played would later be recorded and released commercially. After the band's set, several local acts including Jack Off Jill, KILLING SILENCE, The Goods, Sinful Lust, Robbie Gennet and Dore Soul took the stage to play covers of Marilyn Manson songs. The Goods were ironically enough who Marilyn Manson & the Spooky Kids opened for at their first-ever live performance. The music video for "Get Your Gunn" also premiered at the venue.[1]

This performance, coupled with the Portrait of an American Family release party on July 18, 1994, is unique in that the band's only acoustic renditions of any of these six songs took place at these two shows. Following the album's release, "Mirror People" and "I Got You" were not played again, and "Come Together" was not played in its entirety.
