Shot of the Day: When a Punk Band Huffs Poppers

A modern band continues a venerable party tradition.

2 Substance

Bottoms, the gay punk dance band, huddles in a tiny bathroom at a music venue in Brooklyn just before a show to huff poppers, a mix of amyl nitrite that got its name from the glass vials it comes in, which make a popping noise when huffed. Poppers has a mild psychoactive effect and has been part of club culture since the 1970s. See the photo here.
