Local Punks Something Fierce Try to Act Their Age

We Were the Young Americans

"[There's] sort of a disdain for trying to look too serious," Garcia says. "Once [bands] start taking themselves too seriously, people start beating them up, which isn't fair."

The odd thing, he adds, is that the bands themselves go out of their way to support each other: "It's competitive, but not at all in a way where they're going to knock another band."

Going back to the issue of the group's age, he mentions a recent comment by an older musician in Houston he recently read on the Hands Up Houston ­messageboard.

"[The comment thread] was talking about being inspired by kids, by bands like us and the Dimes," Garcia says. "The older people are being rejuvenated by the younger crowd."

So here's to youth — however you choose to define it.
