The Crumbles kicks off the "Awkward 'n' Awesome' Tour

Hey, indie film fans. If you're in the Los Angeles area, I've got one for you. The award-winning indie rock tragicomedy The Crumbles, written and directed by Akira Boch, is kicking off a nationwide theatrical "Awkward 'n' Awesome Tour," starting this weekend for a one-week engagement at Laemmle's Playhouse 7 Theatre in Pasadena. With an original soundtrack by Quetzal Flores, the movie follows up the ups and downs of the greatest garage band nobody's ever heard of. Check out the trailer:

Here's some more about the movie:
THE CRUMBLES follows the ups and downs of the greatest band in the world... that no one's ever heard of. This indie rock slice-of-life tragicomedy stars a talented up-and-coming, multi-racial cast including Teresa Michelle Lee (Elisa), Katie Hipol (Darla) and Jeff Torres (Dante), whose performances have been called “memorable and spirited” by the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival. The film is set in Echo Park, one of LA's oldest and most eclectic neighborhoods, with a population made up of working class Latinos, hipsters, and artists of all stripes. The odd mixture of people and cultures creates a funky and flavorful milieu, where the characters in THE CRUMBLES fit right in.

THE CRUMBLES is award-winning director Akira Boch's feature film debut. Inspired by Boch's real-life experience of playing garage bands, it captures the feeling of excitement that comes with being a young adult — stepping out into the world on a new adventure with friends, beginning the fulfillment of a long-held fantasy. But the film also shows how reality eventually wins out – bringing disappointment and heartbreak, and forcing people to be resilient and grow.
