Five people from five different parts of this country stumble upon each other in Denver, Colorado. Each have distinctly different musical tastes (one's a punk head, one's a jazz head, one's a folk head, one's an indie head, one's a crazy ass) but are thrown together into a one night performance to raise money for a Neal Cassady documentary (they didn't even know each other's names). They discover that while on paper this collaboration could never work, it was incredibly inspiring and the songs that had for years been stuck inside their respective heads poured out. Within the first three months, they wrote approximately 30 songs. They aren't sure where they are going, but they know what they are doing on their way: writing songs, singing songs, playing songs.
