Aspiring Rock Star Calling Self “Post-Ironic” Completely Understood by Parents
MANHATTAN – Aspiring rock star Jeff Latz, 25, of self-described “post-ironic rock” band Far East Side, remains completely understood by his parents, despite years of trying to confuse them without even consciously realizing his unconscious intentions himself.
According to Far East Side drummer, Rob Alexander, Latz does not expect his parents to be at his forthcoming show, nor do his parents expect him to want them to: “I unequivocally doubt post-irony is their cup of tea.”
“I think I speak for both of us when I say that we understand why he would think we wouldn’t want to be there,” said Latz’s father, Steve, an ironist in the ’70s and believer in time as an unavoidably natural phenomenon. “It was Effie’s idea that he move back East since his music is three hours ahead of its time.”
“Time is a social construct,” said Latz. “The real reason I moved back close to home is to save the world by inspiring Kim Jong-il to take acid and realize he may as well stop being such a dick, by making music.”
“He means Kim Jong-un,” Latz’s vegan father added between sips of his Ginseng-infused kale eggnog. “We understand. We know what he means.”
Latz and Alexander will be joined by bassist Curtis Aikens this Saturday at Ella Lounge, where fans may be treated to hits such as “Guns Are Useless Without Cameras,” “Dead Man’s Dream,” and “My Time Will Always Be Coincidental To Your Reality,” from the band best known now for being the top search for “post-ironic rock” on Google.
