Why not check out performances by some of the folks on the schedule tonight for some inspiration?

For example, gather a few friends and add a whole lot of eyeliner and presto! You’re Fall Out Boy.

Or dig a wife-beater out of a drawer, add some bling (okay, a lot of bling) and wear your pants extra low-slung. Instant T.I.

And for you gals, start with a quick trip to your favorite salon for a little bleach if you’re not already blond. If you are, head for the Manic Panic aisle and grab some pink. Add some rockin’ threads and a little diva attitude and suddenly people will be reporting Pink sightings all over town.

Got some good ideas now? Good. Remember, we’re here for you.
