The Story: It’s the tail end of the big, bad 1980s in Hollywood, and the party has been raging hard. Aqua
Net, Lycra, lace, and liquor flow freely at one of the Sunset Strips last legendary venues, a place
where sex machine Stacee Jaxx takes the stage and scantily clad groupies line up to turn their
fantasies into reality. Amidst the madness, aspiring rock star (and resident toilet cleaner) Drew
longs to take the stage as the next big thing (and longs for small-town girl Sherri, fresh off the
bus from Kansas with stars in her eyes). But the rock and roll fairy-tale is about to end when
German developers sweep into town with plans to turn the fabled Strip into just another capitalist
strip mall. Can Drew, Sherri, and the gang save the strip–and themselves–before it's too late?
Only the music of hit bands Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Whitesnake, and more hold the answer.
