Set List

The length and structure of a typical A-Life set depends on the situation on that particular night. When we are allowed an evening to ourselves, with no other acts performing, we'll usually play two 6-8 song sets (originals and covers), sometimes with a guest DJ spinning records in between. Here's an example from a recent performance:

Set list from Duke's- 6/11/04

Set 1
1. Right Now (Van Halen)
2. Boom Shock
3. Left Right Center
4. It's On Tonight

6. She's Got Me

If we are performing with other groups, we'll most likely play one 6-8 song set of originals, given the time allotted.
