Bruce Flansburgh is a bored, 40-something New York paralegal who hasn’t let go of his dream of rock stardom. While slogging through an increasingly unbearable day to day existence, it dawns on him that the reunions of The Pixies, Soundgarden and other alternative/indie rock bands from the 90’s could inspire his former group, THE INCOHERENTS, to reform. Upon finding his bandmates also mired in middle aged stagnation, he rekindles a tenuous bond with the band’s guitarist and co-songwriter Jimmy, still resentful after languishing for years in unsuccessful groups after The Incoherents imploded. Bruce must also appease the desires of his wife Liz, herself desperate to break out of the life of a homemaker and reignite their stale marriage. While Bruce struggles mightily to maintain normalcy in his troubled work and home life, the band brushes the dust off on a quest to find the old magic while battling for relevance amongst a new wave of younger acts in a greatly changed musical landscape.
