Alan (Justin Rice), a musician whose band has just broken up, shows up in New York to support his burgeoning rock and roll career. He starts by searching for a drummer for a show he’s already lined up and otherwise goes about the mechanics of self-promotion. He finds a newfound champion in Sara (Seung-Min Lee), an aggressive DJ who sets her sights on the submissively uninterested Alan (but finds a drummer for him). In down time, Alan drinks and strategizes with his old friend Lawrence (Andrew Bujalski), a grad student, and Lawrence’s girlfriend Ellie (Rachel Clift), a journalist. Alan endeavors to keep his shoulder to the wheel while Ellie meanwhile finds herself compelled by Alan. The attraction is mutual, but both parties are reluctant to take a next step in this romantic comedy.
