If there's anybody besides Paul McCartney who has the right to perform Band on the Run in its entirety, it's former Wings guitarist Denny Laine, who'll do so tonight in a set that was postponed earlier this year. Of course, Laine is more than just one of McCartney's former sidemen: Not only was he in the early version of The Moody Blues but he sang one of that group's most memorable tunes, “Go Now” (a song he often reprised onstage with Wings). Adding considerably to the bill's appeal is a power-pop fan's dream pairing of The Bangles' Debbi Peterson with The Records' John Wicks. Peterson sometimes gets overshadowed in The Bangles by her sister, Vicki Peterson, and Susanna Hoffs, but she has a distinctively cool, moody voice and exchanges ruefully groovy harmonies with Wicks, who's best known for the eternally jangling pop gem “Starry Eyes.”
