A grunge rock gut punch. Dark things slither around in the heat under all the Night and the Texas Sky. Set in Houston just before Nirvana conquered the world, it is about a band and the four messed up young people that come to comprise it. There is Zac, the bassist still dealing with the double murder suicide that claimed his brother's life. There is Raven, the guitarist, a former beauty queen turned anorexic goth guitar goddess. There is Kitten, the slash her wrists, burn her arms with cigarettes, really into purple poet/singer and then there is Sean, the half-Irish, half-Vietnamese drummer and driving force that brings the four together and who must negotiate them through the trials of performing at a pro-wrestler/metal sculptor's warehouse and a foot-fetished drug dealer as well as the collective horrors that haunt them all.
