The One Night Band was designed from the beginning as the official coming-out-party for the fledgling blog. "We had originally planned it all to happen on Valentine's Day," says Willard. "It would be our debutante party, which fed more into the Band Crush thing. That's actually where the blog name came from in the first place."
"Whatever happens at the show," says Epstein, "we're not expecting perfection,"
But if it happens?
"If there's a hit," he jokes, "we get 15 percent of the royalties."
