REVEAL the band members of Satan's Night Out. JAMES,

ALEX and MAUDY stare at each other as if in some tantric

trance, as they play their music -- Alex's long fingersclimbing up and down his guitar, Maudy's waifish bodysensually curls around her keyboard, the waves of musicflowing through them while James, on drums, drives themfurther into it.

LESTAT (V.O.)

It was hard to believe these

beings were mortal -- so confidentin their skin. Everything in mybody wanted to be with them. I

couldn't help myself.

Then, from somewhere in the room, an ANGELIC VOICE beginsto hum the most hypnotic melody over the tune, melding inexquisite harmony. Arching her neck in some higherecstasy, Maudy looks across the makeshift studio andsuddenly stops playing.

ALEX:

What the hell, Maudy.

Seeing Maudy's stunned face, Alex and James turn to seeLestat perched like a raven on top of the stack ofspeakers, eyes closed, still humming to the fading reverbof the guitars. Slowly opening his cool grey eyes -

LESTAT:

Please don't stop.

JAMES:

What the f-- How did you get inhere?
