Our main characters and their bands seem to exist in these relatively small scenes and circles, and I’ve always thought it all seemed relatively detached from whatever this universe’s actual mainstream is (Candy Hearts too, even though they were accused of being too radio friendly) — so, hey, what gets massive national airplay on their crummy commercial rock radio? What contemporary bands make Turpentine visibly frown when their hit singles come on in the laundromat? Answer: the headliners of SUMMERAMA FEST.
I’m pretty happy with that flyer. I think I captured what I was going for.
