“I feel angry. I feel reactive. I feel attractive. And I have the Power of the Crystals to thank.” – George Clooney

Astoria, NY (October 6, 2010) –

The Missing Teens, America’s no. 1 core-core band, turns the tables on both conventional live music and live theatre performance with their searing exploration of THE POWER OF THE CRYSTALS. Fronted by preacher and con-man James Call, and backed by *dancing girls*, the Missing Teens will explain to you why staying indoors and drinking a bottle of vodka while doing data entry is just as important as putting on new shades and hitting the gym, and how you can synthesize these habits, to create a new, despotic you. They will lead you through a 13-step program and teach you the 7 Habits of Highly Destructive People to help you attain Hawkman and meet with success, success, success, whatever you do.

Directed by Quin Gordon and featuring the acting talents of EJ Cantu, THE POWER OF THE CRYSTALS plays Friday October 22nd through Sunday October 24th at the Brewhouse (28-50 31st St.) in Astoria, NY. For tickets (a meager $10), information, and life guidance, the public may visit power-of-the-crystals.com. For more information about the Brewhouse, please visit astoriabrewhouse.com.

This revolutionary show/seminar is produced by Astoria Music & Arts, Queens’ premiere non-profit promotion company obsessed with exposing the best kept secret in NY: what’s going on in Astoria. This will be AM&A’s first venture into the theatre world and builds upon their strong and continuing tradition of putting on the best dang live music in Astoria, Long Island City, and beyond. For more information on AM&A, please visit http://www.astoriamusicandarts.org/.

James Call has been a cult figure in the New York and San Francisco music scenes for over ten years, first fronting the 6-member German Cars vs. American Homes for many years before enjoying the academic life studying audio engineering at CCNY’s Sonic Arts Center before founding history’s most important (and attractive) band, The Missing Teens. His numerous records include Power, One in a Million, and Music for Young Adults, snippets of all of which can be heard at themissingteens.com, and can be purchased at amazon and on the iTunes store, if you’re into that sort of thing. His music has been played on the radio in Omsk, Russia and various weird cities in the middle of this country as well.

His NY directing credits include: Babette's Feast (world premiere- IAM and Threads Theater), The Dinner Party (Lincoln Ctr. Institute), Hot Cripple (Seeing Place Theater), Red Light Winter (DiePort VanCleef Theater), People Like You (9Thirty Theater).
