    Allegra Rosenberg is all plugged in, ready to Trock
    Kids these days. What with their ukuleles and their homespun ballads about the sci-fi series "Dr. Who," and their addictive EPs and ability to get famous authors to pay attention to their ukulele music about minor plot twists on "Dr. Who." I mean, am...
