There really is no angst quite as raw and awkward as teenage angst. As an adult, the closet thing you get to reliving it is watching My So-Called Life over and over. If you’re looking for a new fix of painful teenage angst, because you’ve memorized every episode, dig out your high school diaries and head to Freddy’s Back Room. Tonight is Cringe Night, a series where Sarah Brown and Liz Schroeter invite anyone to read their journals, poems or stories from their fragile teen years. Even if you’d rather use your high school diaries to start a fire, listening to people share their fourteen-year-old self’s inner most thoughts about what their total crush said to them in gym class. (It’ll be kinda like the episode where the cool English sub helps Angela’s class put together the lit magazine…only funnier and with more booze). And when you’ve had enough teenage musings, Freddy’s has cheap booze and excellent taste in video entertainment.
