What is this coming-of-age, indie dramedy about?
As the summer days are coming to an end, best friends Seth (Nelson) and Jameson (Coltrane) get ready to perform—and party—at local rock venue The Alamo. But before the night even gets to a start the two young men come face-to-face with serious reality checks: Seth receives life-changing news from his girlfriend Mel (Tipton), and Jameson has to choose between his on-again-off-again girlfriend Corin (Kampouris) and a new girl he’s just met, the outspoken Harmony (Justice).
At the show, Seth and Jameson’s friends are too caught up in their own lives to be much help: young rocker Taylor (McAuliffe) romances his new crush Dana (Hunt), and awkward Jack “Rabbit” (Milner) avoids his childhood friend Lexi (Condor) after learning what she did at her sister’s wedding. These intertwining friend-dramas, fueled by a lot of drinking, unfold against a backdrop of live music performed by the best bands in town.
By the end of the night, these young men and women are confronted with a series of fast- approaching life decisions that will either leave them stuck in the comfort of adolescence or catapult them into adulthood.
