Beth Ditto naked & Playboy ‘Rock the Rabbit’ @ SXSW

DOWNLOAD: The Gossip – Listen Up! (MP3)

‘Illinois’ & playmates @ the Playboy party, SXSW – March 15, 2007
Playboy party

I wouldn’t have normally passed up the opportunity to see The Gossip and Voxtrot back-to-back (Thursday, March 15, 2007 – Kork showcase @ Emo’s, SXSW), but majority rules, and in this case the majority of the group I was with at dinner that night couldn’t get in to the show – so instead we found ourselves at the annual Playboy party. It was held at a TV studio-turned-party-space that was full of free food, free alcohol, free cigarettes, Playboy memorabilia, media, rock fans, and socialites. The music-loving mayor of Austin was even there.

Of course four Playboy playmates were walking around, hosting, introducting bands, and posing for pictures. They were dressed in semi-revealing bunny suits.

Ironically, Beth Ditto of the Gossip was back at Emo’s showing even more skin.

OK, I exxagerated the “naked” part – Beth Ditto @ SXSW – March 15, 2007 (CRED)
