I don't know about drunk/bogan-proof, but the machine hooked up to my 
stereo for my 21st ran MPD (http://www.musicpd.org/) for the music and 
PHPMP (http://www.musicpd.org/phpMp.shtml) (there's a PHPMP2 
(http://www.musicpd.org/phpMp2.shtml), never tried it, though).

It worked quite well for me, but I didn't need to drunk/bogan test it. 
It's not exactly what you want, but it might give you something to hack 
into shape.
