You might think a pair of trendy, night-dwelling urbanites who thrive on liquid and “the scene” would be the perfect characters in the perfect show. Would you not? And yet here we are, missing that grand opportunity, because in “We Are With the Band,” the trendy, night-dwelling urbanites thriving on liquid and “the scene” end up being just a couple of woefully wayward women in their early 20s who make bad choices and wear bad clothes.
I can say without irony that Vampires are both trendy and cool. I can only say with irony that hipsters are trendy and “cool.” See the quotes? That’s all I need to imply irony. A couple of quotes. Hipsters themselves might then add ironic quotes around my ironic quotes to show how “”ironic”" their use of “”irony”" is. It’s all very tedious, and I’m done with it.
Aside from the misleading choice of main characters, “We Are With the Band” is an enjoyable show. The situations are there, the plot contrivances are present, and the good hipster/bad hipster dynamic is accounted for. All the show is missing is the dynamism and excitement a Vampire or two might have added to the proceedings. I give this show my second highest score.
Score = Blah.
