Lackadaisical security

Panel 1:
The audience lights are on and people are cheering Aideen O'Neil, beer in hand, nudges Tess Durban. Tess also has a beer in her hand.
Aideen: That was AWESOME! C'Mon, let's go backstage to talk to Zig and Tag.
Tess: Er, Okay!

Tess: That was easy!
Aideen: Rog and I go back a long way! Hey, if you want, I can hook you up with him later!

Tess and Aideeen continue through the backstage corridoors of the club, sipping beer and talking.
Tess: I dunno. He looks a bit of a bruiser.
Aideen: Pffft… You know the first rule for goths and metalheads: the scarier they look, the more tender-hearted they really are.

Tag: And you know what? You can all get FUCKED! I'm out!
Aideen: …sweetheart.
