My hearing so exact I could locate

precisely the source of the

music...

13 EXT. NEW ORLEANS HOUSE - NIGHT 13

In the street, Lestat emerges from the shadows in thedealer's snug-fitting leather outfit. He looks up at anextremely run-down flophouse...

LESTAT (V.O.)

My old house.

High in the attic, a single window glows with dim light.

The source of the MUSIC. The whole house is shaking fromthe sound of the BAND playing upstairs.

14 INT. ATTIC - JUST AFTER 14

The room booms with music, speakers stacked high on allsides, literally shaking the house to its foundations.

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?

LESTAT:

The door, of course.

James and Alex look at the door on the other side of the

attic -- they should have seen him. Maudy stares atLestat, quite taken by the handsome vampire's looks -Drinking

Maudy in with his eyes -
