Band fronted by Brooke Vega from the 2009 young adult novel If I Stay by Gayle Forman. She visits the hospital where a car crash has landed the protagonist, Mia Hall.

The novel was turned into a 2014 film of the same name, but she may not have been in it.

"You mean Brooke Vega of Bikini? Brooke Vega who was on the cover of Spin magazine last month? Here in this very hospital?" This time it's Kim talk­ing. She sounds like a six-year-old reciting lines from a school play about the food groups: You mean we're supposed to eat five servings of fruits and vegetables a day?

"Yeah, that's right," says Brooke's raspy voice. "I'm here to offer some rock-and-roll succor to all the people of Portland."

A couple of the younger nurses, the ones who probably listen to pop radio or watch MTV and have heard of Bikini, look up, their faces excited question marks. I hear them whispering, eager to see if it's really Brooke, or maybe just happy for the break in the routine. "Yeah. That's right. So I thought I might sing a little song. One of my favorites, It's called "Eraser," Brooke says. "One of you guys want to count me in?"' "I need something to tap with," Liz answers. "Anyone got some pens or something?"
