If you hate everything about the stereotypical Park Cities kid,Â you’ll embrace Drater’s confident rebellion and Tiffany Houghton’s willingness to take a leap, giving up what most Highland Park High School students would consider the perfect life.
Drater (“retard” spelled backward) is a rock band formed by three 13-year-old Highland Park Middle School students. They’re big on AC/DC and Quiet Riot- not exactly the neighborhood norm. But that seems to be working for them ‘cause they’re getting booked all over town. You can see them Thursday night at Lakewood Bar and Grill. And to all the preppy punks looking down on Drater, I have a message for you.
Tiffany Houghton just finished her junior year at HPHS, her last as a Scot and-WAIT FOR IT-as a Highland Belle. She’s leaving her spot on the highly worshipped drill team and the comfort of HPISD to finish up at Booker T. Washington while she pursues her music career. Resigning from the Belles? That so does not happen everyday.Â You can seeÂ her in action atÂ House of Blues on July 6.
