The all-female rock band L7 is raffling off a one-night stand with their drummer Dee Plakas. The raffle will take place at their April 14 show in London, U.K. at The Garage. The lucky winner will be entitled to a night with Plakas, who was dubbed by British press as the most shaggable member of L7. According to MTV online, the band said, "they want their fans to get more bang for their buck." The women wanted to give something back to England; a country that they said has provided them with masturbation material since they were kids. Apparently they were talking about Mick Jagger and Jack Wild. This outrageous stunt fits in perfectly with past L7 scandals, such as throwing a used tampon at crowd during one of their festival appearances and the guitarist exposing herself on British television.

Chrissie Hynde Arrested in Leather ProtestChrissie Hynde of the Pretenders was arrested Thursday in New York City after vandalizing leather goods at a Gap store. Hynde has been protesting at GAP stores, organized by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). According to MTV online Hynde, PETA president Ingrid Newkirk, and two other protesters were arrested and charged with misdemeanor criminal mischief in the fourth degree. Allegedly the protesters entered the store and began destroying various Gap leather goods. Gap has been targeted by PETA for protest because they allegedly buy their leather from a distributor who buys the leather from India. It is illegal to slaughter cows in India as they are considered a holy animal. The Gap released a statement that it expects its suppliers to follow all laws related to the humane treatment of animals. Hynde and the three others were released on their own recognizance. Hynde must appear in a Manhattan courtroom on April 20. She faces up to one year in prison and/or a fine of $1000.
