Two best friends Seth and Jameson, who are getting ready to perform — and party — at local rock venue The Alamo. But before the night begins, both young men come are faced with serious reality checks. Seth receives life-changing news from his girlfriend Mel, and Jameson has to choose between his on-again-off-again girlfriend Corin and a new girl he’s just met, the outspoken Harmony.
