Just before Neon Trees took the stage at Saturday’s BFD 2012, Megan Holiday got to ask them the question “24 hours in Vegas and $10,000. What would you do?” Each member of the band had different ideas of what they’d do with cash in Sin City.
Expectant mother and drummer Elaine Bradley gave the most practical answer. She said, “I go to sleep and I save it. I really do.”
“The first thing we’d do is I’d say Bellagio and get a room. And then in Neon Trees fashion we’d go shopping.” Bassist and Las Vegas native Branden Campbell went on to say, “We’d just blow it all on clothes. We’d probably just by one thing each. Like a Louis Vuitton jacket. But then he’d [Tyler Glenn] cut the sleeves off of it and spray paint it.”
Guitarist Chris Allen kept his sights a bit less fashion and bit more old school Las Vegas by saying, “I think I would just hit the penny slots – hard!”
Frontman Tyler Glenn mused, “I’d probably buy a plane out of Vegas.”
Campbell then revised his idea for the 10K, saying, “Actual we’d go to Binion’s and to the Horseshoe and buy the $1 brunch for 10,000 people.”
What would you do with the time and the cash?
