Win Tickets to Little Boots Next Week!

I’m a big fan of Caligula. He’s my favorite Roman emperor. By all accounts he was a short guy with tiny feet, yet still managed to inspire Bob Guccione to ask Peter O’Toole and Helen Mirren to get naked on camera thousands of years later. And because Bob Guccione often appears to me in dreams to offer career guidance and cooking tips, I have a special place in my heart for the syphilitic, sociopathic aristocrat he chose to immortalize in quasi-pornographic film.

Why am I telling you this? Mostly because I’m very lonely and desperate for someone to talk to. But more importantly because Caligula’s name means “Little Boots,” which is also the stage name of adorable British indie electronica maven Victoria Hesketh. And we’ve got two tickets to see her at the El Rey next Wednesday, March 10.

So here’s the deal: To win the tickets, tell me which Roman emperor would make the best modern rock star and why (Like, for instance: Hadrian had a wall, and so does Pink Floyd.) Leave your answer in the comments, and be sure to fill in the email field so we know where to send the congratulatory message when you’ve won. Good luck!

  1. Lets go with Constantine XI. So, wikipedia refers to him as “The Last Roman Emporer”, which, in itself is a great name for a band. I’m sure he could figure out the music part as he went.

  2. Severus aka Flavivs Valerivs “Severvs” Avgvstvs – just sounds cool..like he could sever the music scene with his tunes.

  3. If Julius Caesar can conquered most of the known world he surely would have a dominating presence as a rock star. If all else fails he also has the neurotic, violent ability to beat the shit out of someone down.

  4. Nero – not only was he a musician in his own right, he had the audacity to fiddle while Rome went up in flames around him! That’s hardcore devotion to the music, man. We don’t even have to get into the crazy relationships with his family, his extravagant lifestyle, and his eventual suicide by DAGGER. Does this sound like the next greatest rock god biopic or what?
