In past years we've seen Drinking with Ian on the Drunken Bike Bar Crawl, a Northeast pub crawl featuring 13 bars in 7 hours, on bikes. We've seen TV bartender Ollie Stench serve up a shot called the "Dead Hooker." We've even seen a very special all-dolls episode featuring musician Mark Mothersbaugh and DEVO. So needless to say, this is a cable access show that's up for weird and occasionally format-busting adventures. Tonight's live taping will be a three-banger, meaning three shows (and presumably three new shots) all at once. According to a recent press release, Ian promises that the night will live on in infamy, with rockers the Heroine Sheiks and KMSP's Robyne Robinson slated to appear, among others. 21+.
