Published Nov 18, 2008If your lifelong dream has been to make out with a hot guitar-playin rock chick, Marnie Stern is giving you that chance well, if youll dish out $100. At the New Yorkers recent live shows, the singer/songwriter/guitar slayer has set up a kissing booth, claiming at recent tour stops that she needs the quick cash to pay off a speeding ticket. And what's more wholesome than helping a poor girl pay off her debt to society while getting a little something-something in return?
Via a press release, Stern said that all her remaining shows will feature the booth, where the prices are: $3 for a peck on the cheek, $10 for lip action and $100 to slip her the ol tongue. However, Stern has made the wise choice of whipping up this disclaimer: "Marnie reserves the right to refuse anyone a kiss subject to poor physical and mental hygiene, general dementia and overall grossness." (Not that people who pay for physical affection are ever gross or lack any sort of hygiene.)

11/18 Austin, TX - Mohawk
