Jody Hendrix explains how to damn your liver

Empty Glass is a weekly post devoted to furthering the alcoholic rock star image and mythos. That's right, kids -- drinking has no negative side effects and makes you look cool, to boot.

Them Damned Young Livers are a raucous bunch. A brief perusal of the photo galleries on their MySpace reveals innumerable pictures of the band imbibing alcohol at a rate that would make a fraternity pledge balk. We asked TDYL frontman Jody Hendrix to explain how the band manages to knock 'em back without losing their shirts in the process.

WWTDYLD? (What Would Them Damned Young Livers Drink?) Due to the state of the economy, TDYL drinks cheap. Most of the time we get loaded on the bus on the way to shows. PBR, Keystone Light and Ten High Whiskey mixed with Coke do the trick. PBR is easy to sneak on stage cause every bar sells it. Whiskey mixes well with any cola from the bar. Our new favorite place to drink is Crosstown Station, 'cause they give us 4 drink tickets per member. We've all worked in the service industry at some point and time, so we always tip the barkeep, even if the drinks are free. Doing so tends to ease up on the bartab at the end of the night, when we exceed our agreed-upon limit. Ol' Mookie at Davey's Uptown has always been more than generous in his whiskey pour, so we dig gettin' loaded there as well.

Them Damned Young Livers play this Saturday as part of the Spring Invitational at the Riot Room.
