Summary: Kathy has worked at beloved Brisbane indie record store Dusty's Records for half her life. She arrived as a teenager high on her dad's supply of Led Zeppelin, stayed through her twenties and suddenly thirty is on the horizon and she's still there, measuring her self-worth by her knowledge of the Velvet Underground's back catalogue. Lately, though, cracks have been appearing in Kathy's comfortable indie bubble. Her friends - feisty Mel, the only other woman employed at Dusty's, and straight-laced Alex, whom Kathy has known since preschool - are growing up and moving on, while she's stuck in a cycle of record store, pub, repeat, with the rest of the Dusty's music bros. But how do you move forward when you're stuck in a groove? And what happens when you realise that you've been working so hard to be part of the boys' club that you never stopped to wonder if you should be creating a club of your own?
