I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'see indie rocker' is the definition.
I don't know anything about this answer so I cannot tell whether it can be defined by this definition.

'date craving retro-pub remaining' is the wordplay.
'date' becomes 'court' (I've seen this in another clue).
'craving' becomes 'yen' (I've seen this before).
'retro' is a reversal indicator (retro is Latin for 'backwards').
'pub remaining' becomes 'barnett' (I can't justify this - if you can you should give a lot more credence to this answer).
'yen' written backwards gives 'ney'.
'court'+'ney'+'barnett'='COURTNEY BARNETT'

'to' is the link.
