The live band featured as super-group of indie rock stars joining Armisen on stage for what appeared to be a send-off. Armisen who played his rock band character Ian Rubbish, leading a band featuring two other departing SNL staffers Bill Hader and Jason Sudeikis. Them all play a song “I’ve Had A Lovely Night.”
