When one of our reporters went to the home of Ypsilanti band The Sugar People, he was led to an upstairs room where one of the band members was waiting to talk to him. Naked. In a hot tub full of bubbles. With a glass of wine.

Luckily, the reporter said, the massive amounts of bubbles kept the whole thing PG, and he was able to do the interview without concern for his own morals (or getting fired). Although, when he came back to work, he told me: “I was so twitter-pated I forgot my jacket!”

(Can we make that the word of the day? Twitter-pated?)

Anyway, today he sent me a link to the band’s video blog. There is a recent post for an upcoming show that they have (Aug. 9 at 7 p.m. at the Detroit Industrial Projects), but I recommend this episode:

That’s even BETTER than the mental picture I had.
