Ari Gold writes, directs and stars in this comedy spoof charting the career highs and lows of a professional 'air drummer'. Power (Gold) is a mine worker from New Mexico who has developed a name for himself in his hometown with his formidable air-drumming skills, for which he is mercilessly ridiculed every week on talent night at the local bar run by his Aunt Joni (Jane Lynch). After taking part in an underground 'drum-off' in Mexico, Power gets his lucky break when he is spotted by a trainer from New York. While his union-leader father (Michael McKean) and mining colleagues go on strike in an attempt to save their jobs back home, Power takes off to pursue his dream of becoming the world's greatest air-drummer.
Combining the hilarious satire of This is Spinal Tap and Napoleon Dynamite, Adventures of Power is a Sundance Film Festival & audience favourite starring the real Ari Gold, Jane Lynch (Glee), Adrian Grenier (Entourage), Michael McKean (Spinal Tap), Shoshannah Stern (Jericho), and Chi Chiu Ling (Kung Fu Hustle), about a air-drummer who saves his hometown by listening to his heartbeat. With a totally awesome (LA Times) soundtrack of 80's hits & hilarious originals. Adventures of Power is an epic comedy about a mine-worker named Power whose love of drums and lack of musical skill has turned him into the ridiculed air drummer of his small town. But when Power's union-leader father calls a strike at the mine, Power discovers an underground subculture of air-drummers who just might hold the key to changing the world. Power's journey across America brings him face-to-face with his town's greatest enemy, and allows him to discover the beat within his own heart.
