Tiger Beat & Y.A. Authors Rock Out at New York Public Library

Usually you can’t talk inside a library, much less have a rock concert. Last night, Tiger Beat (a band comprised of Y.A. authors) played inside the 42nd Street New York Public Library.

Jack Martin hosted the NYC Teen Author Festival event, titled “Y.A. Rocks.” The night included music-related-readings from Philana Marie Boles, Jon Skovron, Jeri Smith-Ready, and Rita Williams-Garcia. Band members Libba Bray, Daniel Ehrenhaft, and Barney Miller also read.

The video embedded above shows Tiger Beat playing their original song, “Y.A. Song.” The lyrics make references to The Hunger Games, The Chocolate Wars, Catcher in the Rye, and several other titles. As they played, NYPL intern Zach held up specially-made illustrated cue cards with the lyrics to the song. It was his first day on the job.

YA Novelists by Day, Rock Stars By Night

In the video embedded above, four young adult authors partied like rock stars last Friday–leading the YA supergroup, Tiger Beat.

Libba Bray wailed on vocals, Daniel Ehrenhaft played guitar, Natalie Standiford played bass, and Barney Miller handled drums. The band headlined the launch party for Sourcebooks Fire, the publisher’s brand new YA imprint. GalleyCat missed the party, but Sourcebooks passed along the excellent video.

Here’s more from the blog post: “At Books of Wonder, Sourcebooks threw the biggest, baddest YA launch party this side of the Mason-Dixon line. Rocking the house was Tiger Beat … creatively titled ‘YA Song.’ From the people that brought you Dr. Seuss… Tiger Beat!”
