Charlie leaves a good job to follow his dream of managing his favorite hometown rock band. Believing the band will be famous in the future, he hatches a plan to throw a unique rock concert for time travelers. His only problem is the band’s guitarist, who doesn’t share Charlie’s optimism. His attitude derails Charlie’s best efforts to bring the band success and sends Charlie spiraling into an emotional, financial, and romantic tailspin. With the help of his elderly neighbor and a young intern, Charlie tries to get the band on track and his girlfriend back before it’s too late.
THE BADLEES (as The Damnsels) are a six-piece rock band that have been creating and performing music since 1990. Pete Palladino (vocals), Bret Alexander (guitar), Paul Smith (bass) and Ron Simasek (drums) joined forces decades ago after a few happenstance introductions, that some would say, were driven by destiny. In 2009, guitarist Dustin Drevitch and violinist Nyke Van Wyk joined the band. In October 2013, The Badlees released their 10th studio album Epiphones and Empty Rooms. This double disc release of new material highlights the band’s complex duality. The band’s career features a couple of major label record deals, radio hits, and national critical acclaim.
