Adapted for the stage from the 2006 film of the same name, Once is a musical that follows the story of a street busker who falls in love with an unattainable woman. Often described as somewhat of an "anti-musical," the show features song performances without the standard Broadway elements of elaborate set designs, ornate costumes or general pageantry. Instead, the characters, who remain unnamed throughout the production, sing their songs in a raw manner as the woman helps the man realize his dreams of becoming an established musician and moving to New York. After premiering on Broadway 2011, Once quickly won the accolades of critics and patrons alike, locking down a total of eight Tony Awards in 2012.

Pop-punk band The Queers formed in 1984, its name allegedly deriving from an intention to make fun of the "art fag" scene in the band's native New Hampshire. While the group had a rocky start and broke up almost immediately after formation, the front man, Joe Queer, restarted the band in 1990 and, despite a consistent lineup change, has been producing fairly tame and palatable punk rock about girls, alcohol and partying since then.
