Rock Band Shuts Down the 101, Promptly Arrested

New, 42 comments

Turns out you can't make an "Everybody Hurts"-style video on the 101. A local band named Imperial Stars stopped traffic on the 101 near Sunset Boulevard this morning, and was arrested after climbing atop their van. Judging from their MySpace page, the band likes to pose on their big rig. Via the Times: "On its website, the band pledges that all the money earned from the song will be going to Homeless Children America. The website features the same truck used during the impromptu concert Tuesday morning." And more via the AP: "The driver took the keys and fled in another car, then three musicians climbed on top of the van and began to perform."
