Set in a futuristic wasteland America where heavily armed rock gods clash violently in the streets for fame and power, superstar rocker Hoss comes face to face with a ruthless unknown gypsy named Crow. Trapped in his own fortress, Hoss is a marked man, the prey of a true genius killer, whose arrival threatens to strip Hoss of everything he has fought for.

Performed live in the fittingly subterranean atyp Studio 1, this new production by a young and emerging team will be part rock concert, part poetry slam, part death match. It will be straight up revolution and bull-pit warfare, head to head till one’s dead. Kings will rise and fall, oracles shall speak, and the devil’s in the rock and roll.
“A fascinating, even brilliant work… It is bracingly insightful on the corrupting power of stardom… Few critics would deny its electricity and imagination.” – The New York Times
