Where he presides: Gemma, The Bowery
Favorite drink: Manhattan
I sort of used to be in a band. I was a DJ, so I made music though I wasn't part of a group. I produced house music, making tracks and working on collaborative tracks with various bands that we would license to labels. Real underground stuff. That was about ten years ago. I still do it a little now, just not as much. It was my choice to leave: it was bad money for bad hours. Plus, there's less selling out your soul as a bartender.
Where he presides: Local 138, Lower East Side
Favorite drink: Bourbon
It'd be a punk rock band, influenced by the Pixies. They're my favorite band. I couldn't have a band though, since I'm not a good singer and can only play the flute, badly. I've thought about taking singing lessons, or lessons for playing the cello. That would only be for fun though. It's not like I would be rocking out on the punk cello or punk flute.
Where he presides: Latitude, Midtown West
Favorite drink: Margarita
I can't imagine starting a band. I've never even thought about it. My favorite bands are MGMT and The Pillars, so I guess it would sound something like them, but I don't know. As for a name, I guess I'd pick something like a nickname I have for myself, or a phrase I like. Beats me.
Where she presides: Iggy's, East Village
Favorite drink: Sauza Hornitos, neat
I'm not in a band, for sure. But if I were it would be a girl band called Cyclone Whiplash. Rock and roll!
Where she presides: BBR, Upper East Side
My boyfriend is! They're called MachineDNA, you can check out videos of their Halloween show on YouTube. He works security at the Yale Club. I'm a model, I'm not in the band. I did a shoot for Cosmo today. I had to kiss this guy, which was kind of awkward. I got my nails done for it, though! If I were in a band, I'd call it The Best You've Ever Had.
Where he presides: L'Express, Gramercy
Favorite drink: Tullamore Dew
I have a lot going on as far as that goes. I am in a band called Linfinity. I have no idea what you would categorize the music as. Our first record is coming out this month. It's called Martians Bloom. Our influences are Radiohead, Led Zeppelin, Albert King. We have a song on the record about Tullamore Dew.
