Have you ever been on a tour bus?
several… they tend to be pretty tacky inside – one had red velvet covering everything & looked rather like what I would imagine a bordello to look like
Have you ever partied with a band?
Well I don’t “party” in the consume alcohol/do drugs kinda way but I’ve certainly hung out with plenty of bands & went on tour with Psychotica & Jack Off Jill for a month during the summer of '98 doing their merch which included many wild late nites including hanging in bars in New Orlean's French Quarter until 7AM & an all night camp-out on Miami Beach. I threw a party once for Psychotica in my apartment following a show in DC that lasted until 11 AM the next morning where I even found people I didn’t know passed out on my floor so I am guessing it was some sort of success. Even I the non-drinker spent a considerable amount on booze to ensure the success of my party & drafted a friend as bartender. I didn't realize Absolut came in 2 litres until then.
