Street musicians were hired to play a set of nine songs in shifts for the duration of the event—from 7pm to 7am the next day. Placing themselves along 20 blocks of a downtown street closed to vehicle traffic for the night, the musicians performed as they normally would, busking for money with a case or hat in front of them.

The nine songs: “Will You Love Me Tomorrow?” by The Shirelles, “Don’t Forget Tonight, Tomorrow” by Frank Sinatra, “Tomorrow is Today” by Billy Joel, “Tomorrow’s Gonna Be Another Day” by The Monkees, “Sunday Morning Comin’ Down” by Johnny Cash, “Don’t Stop Believin’” by Journey, “Tomorrow Never Comes” by Elvis Presley, “Sunday Morning” by Velvet Underground, and “One Night Love Affair” by Bryan Adams. The musicians were free to rearrange the songs to suit their own styles and could play them in whatever order they wished.
