EXT. SPENDY’S MUSIC CLUB – NIGHT
The MIDDLE OF NOWHERE on the TERRAFORMED MOON: an almost- lightless DESERT LANDSCAPE with SCRUB PLANTS that could be Arizona …
… all except for EARTH, bright in the NIGHT SKY.
A HOVER CAR WHIZZES PAST, blowing up a cloud of DUST.
At the side of a DARK ROAD is a RAMSHACKLE MUSIC CLUB, made up of corrugated metal sheeting and clapboard.
On the front of the building, a HOLOGRAPHIC SIGN blinks:
$50 DRINK MINIMUM
From outside, we can hear the SOUNDS of a BAND TUNING UP.
And the most unlikely people save the world? Us.
INT. SPENDY’S MUSIC CLUB – CONTINUOUS
HIP, ANNOYED-LOOKING HUMANS and HUMANOID ROBOTS stand in front of a SMALL STAGE where the CP GIRLS — L, INFINITI, STACYŸ, EVA, and MAYA — nervously TUNE and TEST their instruments.
Behind the stage, a small HOLOGRAPHIC SIGN reads:
THE CLONES (plus Cyberpink)
Stacyÿ stands in front of a glowing HOLOGRAPHIC MIC RING, L tunes a BASS, and Infiniti presses GLOWING BUTTONS on a guitar-like instrument called a SYNTHTAR. Maya plays a test note on a LEVITATING KEYBOARD, and Eva sits looking impatient behind a DRUM KIT.
AUDIENCE MEMBER 1 Get off the stage!
Would you give us a second?!
AUDIENCE MEMBER 2 Bring on The Clones!
MAYA (to L)
Just ignore them, L.
(to the other girls)
Yo, what are we playing?
STACYŸ “Space-Age Princess.”
That song doesn’t make sense!
STACYŸ Yes it does!
AUDIENCE MEMBER 3 We want The Clones!
L is losing it.
(to the audience)
Why? The Clones sound just like everybody else!
An audience member WAY IN THE BACK pipes up.
AUDIENCE MEMBER WAY IN BACK (O.S.) That’s the point. They’re The
INFINITI Try engaging the grav.
Maya, L, Stacyÿ, and Infiniti SWIPE WAIST LEVEL, their SHOES GLOW, and they begin to HOVER about SIX INCHES off the ground.
How is this supposed to help our
A few audience members begin to chant.
We want the Clones! We want the
L grabs the glowing MIC RING in front of Stacyÿ, pointing to the audience in a wide, accusatory swoop.
What we should do is … clone you
The audience is silent, waiting to see where this is going.
L (CONT’D) and then …
She struggles to make an analogy.
… we might get an audience with
Better taste. Anyway, you see where
I’m going with this.
The CLUB MANAGER — a TINY WOMAN with PURPLE HAIR, who speaks in a raspy SMOKER’S VOICE — pokes her head in from the wings.
MANAGER Playing something. Now.
(to the Manager, gesturing
to the audience)
How about a little respect?
The other girls WINCE.
The Club Manager speaks to someone off-stage.
From the wings, two BOUNCERS — one ROBOT, one HUMAN — appear.
EXT. SPENDY’S MUSIC CLUB BACK ALLEY – MOMENTS LATER
The girls are SHOVED out of the door. The CLUB MANAGER stands at the doorway.
And don’t come back …
(with a dramatic flourish, as though it’s Madison Square Garden)
… to Spendy’s! Slam. She’s gone.
(yells at the closed door)
What about our instruments?!
MANAGER (O.S.) Get ‘em tomorrow.
