Sooo, Vanessa Hudgens plays the object of some geek's obsession in this teen music-infused rom-com Bandslam. It's about "a new kid in town [who] assembles a fledgling rock band -- together, they achieve their dreams and compete against the best in the biggest event of the year, a battle of the bands." Hudgens plays the "rocker" lead singer. Also starring are pop singer Alyson Michalka of Aly & AJ and Ryan Donowho, who you might remember as the Marissa-smitten skater who drunkenly fell to his death on "The O.C." The honor of playing the dork goes to the 19-year-old Gaelan Connell, who, according to IMDb, is actually in a rock band called Sweet 16. (He also used to be the lead singer of the DC band Exist.)
I'm not quite sure what to make of the film just yet, but I'm always up for anything music-related.
