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.
