Next Stop, Babylon

"Everyone was either fighting, puking, or making out," says Two Word Name guitarist Dag Stylez of the "party bus" to and from the band's January 25 gig at L.A.'s Whiskey a Go Go. For $35, around 150 riders were promised a keg of beer, show tickets, and a stripper pole.

"Some people were pissed that we oversold it -- totally by accident -- but five or six people had to stand the whole way. Then, in the first five minutes, someone took a dump and stank up the whole bus. Then the air conditioning broke, a window was busted, and, to top it off, the keg ran out about halfway to L.A."

He says the bus riders got into the gig, though some ended up bounced.

"One guy was way too drunk -- he should have been kicked out -- and there was a girl who passed out on the bar."

The band paid $1000 for the bus rental and driver ("It's usually $1250, but I know the guy who owns it"), plus money for gas, a keg of beer, and several bottles of vodka.

"We made our money back on the bus, but we didn't sell all our [show] tickets, so we ended up losing a couple hundred dollars, after band expenses....

"Yeah, there were a few underage kids [on the bus], but everyone signed a liability [waiver] saying they wouldn't drink unless they were legal age, and there were two security guys checking." And the stripper pole? "We didn't hire a stripper, but there were plenty of girls dancing on it.... There were a lot more girls than guys, so I know the guys were happy with the trip."
