Costume contest at the Key Club Monday Night

Havent been back to Metal Skool's Monday mash since I used to deejay the VIP room, and thankfully nothing's changed. KISS wanna-bes, half-naked nymphos, ironic 'staches, lil creepy guys trying to look up my dress… Okay it was their annual Halloween party, but if you've ever been to see the Skool, you know there's always some hairy hi-jinx to be had.

You'll have to wait to read all about it in NEXT week's Nightranger, but here's a lil scoop to hold ya over til then: the whole place was a reality TV star ruckus with members of VH1's Rock of Love (Lacey, the bitchy redhead's band played, and yes they sucked), The Real World, The Pick-Up Artist (yes, “Mystery” was there and no, he is NOT hot). Stir in Jackass's Steve-o, aging metal men Rikki Rachtman and Warrant's Jani Lane, and you've got one scary-ass cauldron of kooks.

More Strip bits to be had in THIS week's Nightranger (out tomorrow) too, including my take on the Sex Pistols show (see Randall Roberts review here for a decidedly different view) and the SanDisk Block party featuring Common, Z-Trip, Cut Chemist, Linkin Park and The Cyrtstal Method.

Happy Halloween!
