The multiracial five-piece band Black Kids, which has an affinity for '80s British rock, is something of a sensation in Europe. There, the band has ascended the charts, packed venues and secured prime TV spots. And in the United States, the critical praise is deafening. Of course, the musicians didn't expect all the buzz. Music bloggers and hipster circles gush over the group's tongue-in-cheek multicultural image and the irreverent neon pop-rock of its debut CD, Partie Traumatic. The album has been out for about a month, and the scruffy band from Jacksonville, Fla., is already tired of hearing about itself.

You remember when playing fantasy sports was a little embarrassing? You'd talk about it with others who played at work or school but you didn't exactly fly a flag saying, "I spend five hours a week obsessing over make-believe games." And you waited maybe a month or two before explaining the whole thing to a new girlfriend. My wife accepted it pretty much in stride, one of many signs that she was a keeper and a queen of tolerating the inexplicable. But 10 years down the line, that all has changed.
