Teens are running the show these days. Hell, even the Pope knows they’re “wealth” incarnate. Jaden Smith the 17-year-old, gender-bending style icon is rewriting men’s fashion; Tavi Gevinson, media mogul, Broadway bb, and feminist fashion critic, at 19, is old as shit; and untold numbers of internet celebrities/ Vine stars/YouTube divas exist just to make you feel so out of touch. So it’s no surprise that at least two local bands– TEEN and The Teen Age– are joining in the Adolescent Revolt. With both of them releasing new material, your addled, aging mind is bound to get them confused, so allow us to help out.
Greenpoint’s TEEN just released a video for their single, “Not For Long.” It’s kind of like the “Nothing Compares 2 You” video meets “Spaceballs” on shrooms… Okay, we won’t bother trying to describe it — just give it a watch and know that you’ve still got a chance to win tickets to their album release party. As previously mentioned, we’re giving away two tickets to the April 24 show at Baby’s All Right, or — if you prefer — two tickets to the March 14 premiere of Teenage, a film adaptation of Jon Savage’s history of adolescence featuring music by Bradford Cox of Deerhunter.
