Bands on the Run

HARLOW show in Philly - Okay, so the Harlow show? Was not as great or as much fun as it could have been. Why? Other bands, and a weak crowd. But first let me say how excited I was at the idea that they...

Doin' it well

Casting Special - The usually tepid casting show format gets a shot in the arm with some hot sex talk. Ooh-wee! The best part? Beastie doesn't get a word in! Yes! Beastie-free hot sex talk! It's safe to come into the water!

Best. Reunion Show. Ever.

The Reunion Show - Quick: What's painfully revelatory, goofy-funny, and not at all self-aware? This Bands on the Run reunion special! It's simply awesome.

SOULCRACKER Sucks! But You Knew That!

Miami, Part II - This week, the Battle of the Bands! And the winner and the loser are announced. Do you want me to ruin it for you? Really? Okay. The real winner is -- brought to you by Guitar Center!

Soulcracker finally snaps, weakly "pops."

Miami - Boob yells at Slutton, who drunkenly tells a girl, "Oh, the things I would do to you." If what, if she were throwing herself at you? Less talk, more cock, man! Are you a rock star or just an elfin dude with messy hair? We know the answer. FLICKERSTICK stays on the same program and achieves the same results: fanfare, groupies, and drunken mayhem. Now that's winning. Winning television, that is!

Nothing like a game of Spin The Bottle followed by a battle of the bands, eh what?

Tampa - FLICK wins the battle of the bands, thank God. Unfortunately, HARLOW is unable to catch up to SOULCRACKER's merch sales, so it's time for them to get the boot. Don't act so surprised. You knew this was coming.

Oh My God. Time For AP To Go Away.

Atlanta, Part II - All the bands have to book their own shows. CRACK gets a taste of their own medicine when FLICK books a show at CRACK's bonus venue. HARLOW is mighty afeard of what's a-gonna happen next.

Finally, SOULCRACKER does not win the bonus opportunity.

Atlanta - And they're pissed about it, too. They maintain the lead, but they're crumbling within. FLICKERSTICK lets the air out of their tires for a gas, and Cory's a total jerk to Leanne. But hey, whatcha gon' do?

Beastie's sportin' wood. Sweetness. Not.

Memphis - It's Rex's birthday, and all he wants is a kick in the junk. Dominic juggles two groupies. HARLOW has had it with SOULCRACKER. Beastie pines over his ex-girl, and Mr. Stupidhead plays the world's smallest violin for him.

DODES is out, leaving SOULCRACKER with no friends

Nashville - It seems that SOULCRACKER is up to their no-good shenanigans once again, but they rip out a mean country song in a day and impress the pants off of HARLOW and FLICKERSTICK. Sutton misses his girlfriend, and FLICK does a not-so-great rendition of "Fade Into You" by Mazzy Star.

Time To Battle!

Columbus, Part II - It's time for the Battle of the Bands. Everyone's totally tweaked. Fletcher's fiancée shows up unexpectedly (d'oh!). Everyone rocks pretty hard, but someone's gotta go. Who's it gonna be? Read on.

Ah, how the tables have turned!

Columbus - CRACKER and DODES use scummy tactics to get ahead, Fletcher and Brandin boff the same girl on consecutive nights, and HARLOW finds their niche. Almost.

Daryl is starting to go insane.

Pittsburgh - "Starting to go"? Sorry, I meant "continues to be." My bad. El Dangeroso returns, SOULCRACKER can't believe how poorly they're doing, and FLACKERTHWACK continues to kick ass. HARLOW remains clueless.

Ay Caramba

Chicago, Part II - More beer. More mediocre music. More irritating attitudes. More drunk Dominic. And El Dangeroso makes his first appearance...followed in short order by more Mr. Stupidhead banging his head against a wall.

Ouch

San Francisco - Cory's father dies. Dominic gets drunk and sports wood. Rex finds some way to complain about every detail of his life. Throwing cheese is Sutton's answer to everything. Beastie looks like Baba Booey. Bob is sick of playing bars. The girls of HARLOW don't do any work, can barely rock, and almost win. And this is just the beginning.
