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.

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

After years of denial, Kiley has finally admitted to baring a striking resemblance to Velma from Scooby Doo. Instead of traveling in a van hunting ghosts, she prefers wandering on foot in search of tacos, cheap beer, and fake birds. Growing up in Portland, Kiley enjoyed the balance of urban and green spaces. Then she spent her four years at Ithaca College, and found herself craving more sprawling asphalt in her life. So she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where most of the buildings look like they're about to collapse. Kiley's favorite activities include: getting lost, crafting, sewing, biking, and geeking out at museums. Her love of taxidermy probably makes her a terrible vegetarian, but she doesn't care.

    This sounds awesomely awkward! Why aren’t there more shows like My So Called Life and less shows like Gossip Girl?
