This evening, sitting around with my wife and our friend Jeff, he mentioned seeing a crapload of emo kids outside a local music venue. I immediately asked what an emo kid looked like. My wife suggested the kids from The OC. Jeff described what sounded to me like followers of The Cure.
Luckily, Wikipedia's there to save the day. Then I realized that I'm old, and I don't understand and can't even identify this whole sub-culture of music. I do like Death Cab, but otherwise, I'm ignorant of it all. Wikipedia at least lets me feign knowledge of current popular culture.
It turns out that emo kids seem to be a mix of Robert Smith-alikes with a little punk thrown in, I guess.
At least I get to see Les Claypool next week.
