- Feed Dogs concert hailed "best ever"
- — Stilwater Gazette newspaper headline
At the Saints Hideout with Shaundi and Pierce, Playa laments their failure to ask Jessica about the shipment before killing her. Playa is sure Donnie won't know about it after displeasing Maero, and so decides to question Matt.
Together with Pierce, Playa steals a Delivery Truck carrying fireworks and uses it to get past The Brotherhood and gain access to the Feed Dogs concert, where Matt is playing. Matt has little information to give and only knows that the shipment is coming in by boat. Playa, furious, mercilessly holds down Matt's hand as the pyrotechnics display activates, burning and crippling his hand and arm. As Playa leaves, they phone Shaundi and ask her to find out what she can on the shipment by "[making] new friends" at the docks.
The following text has been transcribed verbatim from the game files.
Upon completion of the Mission, it is available in-game at Newspaper Clipboards.
- Pick up the fireworks truck from the warehouse
Drive Pierce to a specific warehouse.
- Kill the Brotherhood guarding the truck
Eliminate all of the The Brotherhood enemies outside.
- Get into the Fireworks Truck
- Throw fireworks boxes to defend the truck
- Get to the Arena
While Pierce drives the truck to the concert, there are unlimited crates of Fireworks are supplied defend the truck from incoming enemies. If the Fireworks hit a vehicle, they instantly explode; otherwise, they have a fuse. Any vehicle caught inside the fireworks' explosion is instantly destroyed.
In Co-op, the mission plays slightly different: the guest drives the truck instead of Pierce and there is also a 3 minute countdown. There are also get 4 units of Brotherhood Notoriety instead of 3 while in a truck.

- Pierce changes the Radio Station to 102.4 Klassic FM even if it's locked out in the Menu, causing Playa to remark that Pierce has a poor taste in music. Playa makes a similar remark during the Sons of Samedi mission "Bonding Experience".
- Despite Pierce responding that he's the driver and that they're going listen to what he wants, he does not complain if radio station is changed.
- Pierce also listens to classical music in Orange Threat Level, which instead draws a complaint about him changing the radio station.
- If 102.4 Klassic FM is already playing, Pierce changes to 105.0 The World instead, even if the station is not available yet.
- The other three members of the Feed Dogs have randomly generated appearances, which change when replaying the mission either in a new game or via the Newspaper Clipboard.
- After this mission, three radio advertisements related to the Feed Dogs are disabled.
- The Brotherhood use a Bulldog variant in this mission that is not used elsewhere in the game. It jumps from Mount Claflin in an attempt to ambush the delivery truck, and can easily be obtained by exiting the mission while it is on-screen.
