"He partied himself into the hospital," says Pistolita drummer Cory Stier of bassist Alex Kuhse. "After our show at the Triple Rock Social Club in Minneapolis, Alex headed to the bar and proceeded to use all seven or eight of the band's drink tickets. Within one hour. All hard drinks. We then headed to our hotel 15 minutes away from the venue, and Alex started puking up everything inside of him, for two hours....

"An ambulance was called, he was put on a stretcher, and headed to a nearby hospital." Kuhse was treated for mild alcohol poisoning and returned to the band's hotel room in time for loadout. The next night, Kuhse played their show in Ames, Iowa ("no problem"). Pistolita appear tomorrow, April 21, at the Epicentre.
