Gig was originally thought to be Axis but later confirmed to be Avalon by a few people that were there including Mike Gioscia, who said "Yes.... Avalon, I put them on stage". This japanese review also mentions Avalon: http://www.afropunx.jp/humming/live.cgi?action=list&artist=Groovasaurus.

Gig also confirmed by Doug Gillard with the following comments:

"I remember John P., Don Depew and I flying in, getting up to our dressing room area just a half hour before playing, and there was Peter Wolf from J. Geils band sitting there talking to Bob. He was a fan. When we left the venue, G. Love & Special Sauce were on stage in the street."
