Stephanies there, totally wasted. FLICKERSTICK sounds really good, and the song theyre playing sounds like a U2 song. Nice.
HARLOW is starting their show at The High Five, and people seem to dig it this time. Rayshele: Everyone just took an immediate liking to us. Chimene: Those girls [from The High Five] literally worked their asses off [sic] for us. Really? Their asses fell off? Thats awesome. Long live rock. Its true, though; that girl Nikki sells off a ton of HARLOW's CDs. Seems like a cool chick.
More multi-band merch-selling shots, set to Dont Bring Me Down by ELO. God, I havent heard that song in years. Anyway, a lot of drunk Fratty McBeerslides linger as the bands finish up and count their totals. Stephanie is all over Brandin, but hes not havin it cuz hes gotta work it.
And here are Brendon and Katina with the tallies:
FLICK -- $318 (Oh, damn.)
HARLOW -- $849
DODES -- $743
ASSLICKER -- $1073 (Ohmygodthisisnthappeningohmygodohmygod)
FLICK -- $402
HARLOW -- $588
DODES -- $730
ANALSPASM -- $475
FLICK -- $4051
HARLOW -- $4444
DODES -- $4540
WORSTBANDEVER -- $4538
Oh, dammit. If HARLOW or FLICKERSTICK gets kicked off, this show is gonna suck. Theyre the only really interesting people on this show. VH1 should really try to contrive some situation that would get NUTSACKER kicked off. They should call them on the bonus foul they pulled earlier. They totally broke the rules. Screw them. Good for DODES, though; they're a decent band and they were definitely the underdog for a while, but theyre pulling through. FLICK needs to get their shit together, though. They have to win. Do it for Johnny! I mean, uh
Brandin: I never imagined that we could fall that far behind. It was just a huge fall. Yeah, dude. You should seriously start working just a little harder, because then youd be unstoppable.
Brendon and Katina begin to break down the rules for the dreaded battle of the bands. Basically, the bands play, there's a panel of judges, and the band with the lowest earnings after the battle gets the boot. Theres no door charge, but any merch sales are included in the total tour earnings. Heres the twist: the winner of the battle (according to the judges, that is) cannot be eliminated from the tour, so if the fourth-place band (right now, FLICKY) wins, the third-place band (HARLOW) gets tossed. So if these guys want to stay on the show, theyre gonna have to sell some serious goodies.
