Golden 'Nuggets'

 The Wild Honey Foundation put on a hell of an autism benefit last week in Glendale, Calif., featuring seminal garage rockers from the Seeds, Love and the Chocolate Watchband. Lenny Kaye served as emcee, resident historian, cheerleader and intermittent singer-guitarist for this semi-reconstruction of the 1972 compilation album “Nuggets." 

Read about the seminal album HERE.

Susanna Hoffs performed "I Want Candy" by the Strangeloves and teamed up with Weird Al and Owen Elliot (Mama Cass's daughter) for "Sit Down, I Think I Love You" by the Mojo Men.

With everything as wonderful as it was, I'm baffled as to why someone felt the need to aggressively filter this cute photo of the Bangles singer/guitarist with fellow musicians Carnie Wilson and Kathy Valentine. See the original BELOW.

As is the case with garage bands, sometimes less is more.

Here are former Textones bandmates Carla Olson and Valentine -- who did the original version of the Go-Go's hit "Vacation" -- covering "You're Gonna Miss Me" by the 13th Floor Elevators. Enjoy!
