Synopsis by Hal Erickson
In the second of the series' musical episodes, Xena (Lucy Lawless) tries to negotiate a truce between the Amazons and the warlord Draco (Jay Lagai'aia). To that end, she proposes a Battle of the Bands, with songs rather than swords used to determine the outcome. Meanwhile, Xena's mom, Cyrene (Darien Takle), gets the matchmaking urge, and Joxer (Ted Raimi) again crosses paths with his disreputable brother, Jace. Highlights include a group of archaic villagers singing "The Telephone Hour" from Bye Bye Birdie and Xena's down-and-dirty lyre rendition of her TV series' theme song.
