1983: Chicago punk has finally caught up to the coasts. In the brutal time of Reagan politics, police violence, and the looming threat of nuclear war (sounds familiar right?) a trio of 'friends' try to navigate the punk scene. Tensions quickly emerge as Zig, the leader of the group attempts to transform Cyn, and Nat into proper punks. Friendships are strained as the genre takes a turn towards hardcore and the mentor becomes more abrasive than enlightening. Is this friendship deeper than liking the same bands? Will it survive these uncertain times?
Zig: Mid-late twenties (ancient in the punk scene), a proud British punk. He channels Iggy Pop in both stage presence and undie size. Comes off as rough around the edges but is not malicious. He's probably more confident than he should be. Guitar player preferred.
Cyn (late teens) is trapped between DC and Chicago while struggling to find her identity as an African American in the punk scene. Underneath her East Coast sass and caked on eyeliner, she's still just a kid in a lot of ways. Bass player preferred.
Nat (late teens) From a conservative Jewish family and still holding onto some pent up rage after the Nazi march on Skokie. Don't let the innocent face fool you, she's a wild child. She's more glam than your average punk (think Debbie Harry). Tired of being the wallflower. Drum player prefered. NOTE: Include if you play guitar, bass or drums, what skill level you are and if you own the instrument. If able, send links to your music. (not required)
