Fresh on the gloriously decadent Silver Lake music scene, Emily is a small town hopeful with big talent, but in a city infamous for preying on naive newbies, theres more than eager club promoters ready to welcome her to the hood. Melding the influences of great novelists like Thornton Wilder, Charles Bukowski, Emily Bronte, Armistead Maupin and Hubert Selby, Jr., Silver L.A.ke is an original modern-day rock n roll romance that is just as edgy, sexy and unpredictable as its East Hollywood setting. Emily will get by with a little help from her offbeat friends, Kat, George and Simon. As they strive to protect her from the seamier side of the Silver Lake scene, they form a unique bond that is as tight and typical as any other modern American family-one that includes a sassy transgendered rock drummer with endless advice- a burgeoning singer-songwriter blinded by stars in her eyes- a washed up musician shamelessly holding on to a rock fantasy- and a gorgeous, young Johnny Depp clone who brings them all together as he tries to keep his feelings for Emily in check. If the fab four can endure L.A.s endless nights of rockin n rollin, theyre going to discover something even more elusive and rewarding than fame. But can their friendship survive Emilys unshakeable quest for success? When Sid Slaughter, a rock superstar with a questionable rep, begins to show interest in her, Emily turns a deaf ear to her friends advice and cranks up the charisma. Sex, drugs, rock n roll and shattered trust lead to life-changing destiny for each of them. This battle of the bands is going to leave behind scars and broken hearts...and a murder.
