I was the banquet entertainment at a conference a few years ago. I like playing events with an open bar. I’ve found that an audience member’s perception of my talent level is in direct proportion to said audience member’s blood alcohol level.
The open bar also tends to make an audience appreciate “Drinkin’ ’til You’re Sexy” a bit more than some other crowds. After this particular show, a guy approached me after my set and told me how much he liked DTYS. He said it reminded him of his younger days when he and his friends would go out on the town.
He said that since they knew the girls would all get better looking at closing time, their philosophy was “why wait…go ugly early”. He said I should write a song. Who was I to argue.
