Jason Andrews (Last Exit to Brooklyn) is Simon, a New York City
bootlegger who sells stolen music on the streets of Manhattan's Lower East
Side. Ludlow Street chick Cyd (Kimberley Flynn, Michael Mann's Heat), who
has a real job, meets Simon on weekday mornings for sex. Life is good for
Simon, until the day he rips off 1-900-BOXX, a militant all-girl punk band
fronted by real life rocker Cynthia Sley (of the Bush Tetras). The band
comes after Simon, tromps his would-be sidekick Fuller (Kevin Corrigan, The

Director Matthew Harrison, one of the most exciting American
independent filmmaking talents to emerge in the 1990's, began making films
on the streets of New York City while still a kid. His first feature, Spare
Me, a smash hit on the international film festival circuit, led to the
immediate production of Rhythm Thief. Harrison's short films, such as Two
Boneheads, West Side Evan, and Waking Up Crazy, won awards internationally.
Based on his admiration of Rhythm Thief, Martin Scorsese served as executive
producer on Harrison's acclaimed follow-up film, Kicked in the Head.
