After failing first as a singer and then as a drummer, a 31-year-old DJ starts a band with his closest friends. He exposes himself to ridicule and risks disappointment with their debut single, a confessional monologue about growing older in a younger music scene. The group’s first album is released to critical acclaim. Reviewers laud the second album as the best of the decade. After the third is heralded as a monumental artistic success, he announces his retirement and the dissolution of the band.
