The Muppets’ house band, a.k.a. Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem, performed live for the first time this weekend at San Francisco’s Outside Lands Festival with a five-song set.

They took on 1979’s “Can You Picture That?” from the Muppet Movie and covers of The Mowgli’s “San Francisco,” Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros’ “Home,” and the Beatles’ “Ophelia” and “I Get by With A Little Help From My Friends,” during which the Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir hopped on stage to provide backup.

The Muppets returned to TV this year when ABC rebooted the show for a 16-episode run. But the beloved franchise’s new incarnation was canceled after the first season.
