Awkward & Awesome Tour Kickoff: The Crumbles

The rise and fall of a fictional, all-girl, indie rock band in Los Angeles is put under the microscope. Just as the band gets rolling, the members' internal baggage impedes them from getting out of the garage. The film features original music by Quetzal.
