The Amateur: Or (Revenge of the Quadricorn) is a gritty, naturalistic musical drama exploring and paying homage to the chaotic journey of artistic pursuit in contemporary Los Angeles. Joey takes his music very seriously. The rest of his life, not so much. "The Amateur" tells the tale of a broke -- and sometimes broken -- artist navigating the LA music scene. Riding the highs and nursing the hangovers, his journey leads him through various experiences, both personal and professional, that shed a new light on the things that really matter. The Amateur leads you into underground LA exploring what it is to live the life of an artist - a life that isn't always seen in the glare of Hollywood.
