If I could burn this town I wouldn't hesistate

Basic ideas:
Kid is stuck in mid-sized east coast town, and hates it. It's not like a dumpy midwest town, but they actively hate it. Not in a "I should leave here" way, a "I absolutely despise this entire stupid town and everything about it" way. After an event where their school band volunteers to play for a big town event, put a lot of effort in, pull it off flawlessly, and don't get a single bit of applause, the kid snaps and ends up causing some sort of anomalous occurence to kick in that I haven't decided on yet, but likely related to fire or people in the town randomly snapping and going nuts. The Foundation finds out about this and finds out that the kid either knew all the people that snapped or was familiar with all the places that burned. After an interview where the kid mentions REALLY hating the town, the agent in charge-acting against the higher-up's wishes-sends a person in to investigate the kid's room. This sets off a chain of events where everything goes to shit, resulting in some serious panic in the town and the death of the agent in charge. Afterwards, they see the kid taking off out of town as he burns one last building, and there's a warning about not going after him. Fancy feet dancing through this town could be an aftermath, or his POV of the night everything went to shit.

“Have you ever been trapped in a situation you hate?

I don’t mean you’re in a dead-end job and aren’t happy but will still take it. I mean a situation where if you had any choice at all, you would leave. A situation where you’re only there because you have no choice at all. Where every god damned cell of your body hates every moment of being there but you don’t have a choice.

That’s the shit I put up with in this town. Every single thing I ever did in this town was for absolutely nothing. Nobody ever noticed, nobody ever cared, and yet I STILL had to do it! Every aspect of this damnable town
