From the introduction:
A tale of a rock band on the brink of success.
It’s the year 1997, and the music industry is thriving. Half a billion CD’s are sold this year in the United States alone, and the country is full of scrappy alternative bands trying to make it big. One of them is Pittsburgh’s The Loving, fronted by charismatic singer-guitarist Val Sciacoli. The Loving was a local favorite who eventually drew enough attention nationally to be signed by Another World, a major record company’s “indie” label. This year, The Loving is supposed to start recording their second album for Another World in New York City, and their small fanbase’s expectations run high.
