The sets were pretty much the same both nights, with Kaye leading the house band, plus guest performances from Patti Smith covering The Electric Prunes and The Leaves, Bob Mould covering The Castaways and The Litter, Steve Wynn & Peter Buck covering The Moving Sidewalks and The Spades, The BanglesVicki Peterson and John Cowsill covering The Beau Brummels and The Knickerbockers, Juliana Hatfield covering The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, Marshall Crenshaw covering Sam The Sham & The Pharaohs, Ivan Julian covering Love and The Music Machine, Richard Lloyd covering Count Five and The Vagrants, and more.
