Do you remember my blog post about The Incoherents? I am super thrilled to tell you that the crowdfunded rock and roll comedy has come to life! Here is the plot outline, in case you have forgotten:
Bruce Flansburgh is a bored, 40-something New York paralegal who hasn’t let go of his dream of rock stardom. While slogging through what’s become an increasingly unbearable day to day existence, it dawns on him that the successful reunions of bands like the Pixies, Soundgarden and other alternative/indie rock groups from the late 80’s-mid 90’s could perhaps inspire his former group of 20 years earlier, The Incoherents (no, you haven’t heard of them), to reform.
After recruiting the sibling rhythm section of Keith and Tyler, he rekindles a tenuous bond with the band’s guitarist and co-songwriter Jimmy Anthony, 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 stagnant marriage.
As Bruce struggles mightily to maintain a modicum of normality in his troubled work and home life, The Incoherents brush the dust off and battle for relevancy amongst a new wave of younger, hipper bands from Brooklyn, ultimately leading to a chance to play for a record contract, some vindication… and maybe even a little glory.
Go watch the movie and celebrate with the crew at The Manhattan premiere of The Incoherents!
The screening is at SOHO International Film Festival on Saturday June 22nd 2019 at Village East Cinemas in East Village
