Fanboy is a rock and roll thriller that follows Xenos, a band on tour, and the obsessed superfan who’s following them!
Filmed in San Diego and featuring mainly San Diego musicians and artists, including several Casbah employees and patrons, Fanboy is written, produced, and directed by longtime Casbah bartender/bar manager/co-owner Ben Johnson, who also plays the title role.
Shot at Casbah, five more venues, and several other locations throughout San Diego, it’s a thrilling crime drama seen through the lens of the underground rock clubs that, before this COVID-19 nonsense, were our homes, and will be again! For now, there’s Fanboy!
PLOT: Xenos is playing their first show of their first tour. The band is composed of three members from previous bands that almost “made it” and Duane (Thomas Kitsos) - the drummer who had the idea, the money, and the means to make the tour happen but not the talent. When Freddie Proehl (Ben Johnson), Xenos’ biggest fan with a solid reputation as a shredding drummer albeit a weird dude, comes to see this all-star band show after show, he starts pressuring the members of Xenos to give him a shot on drums. As Duane continues to show he won’t be drumming any better, the others begin to consider it. Fanboy is a story about the lengths people go to for even a slice of fame.
