So Punk Rock - And Other Ways to Disappoint Your Mother

Author(s): Micol Ostow; David Ostow

Fiction

Despite his dreams of hipster rock glory, Ari Abramson's band, the Tribe, is more white bread than indie-cred. Made up of four suburban teens from a wealthy Jewish school, their M#65533;tley Cr#65533;e is about as hardcore as SAT prep and scripture studies. But after a one-song gig at a friend's Bar Mitzvah-a ska cover of "Hava Nagilah"-the Tribe's popularity erupts overnight. Now, Ari is forced to navigate a minefield of inflated egos, misplaced romance, and the shallowness of indie-rock elitism. It's a hard lesson in the complex art of playing it cool.
