Loosely based on Aristophanes’ The Frogs—SAPO takes place in San Francisco. Mid 1970’s: a young Chicano band named SAPO-sporting afro’s, sweaty vests, and bell bottom jeans set out to surpass SANTANA’s success by making it big in the music industry with their own smooth acoustic Latin sounds. They meet a shady producer/agent & upholstery guy also named SAPO who promises SAPO the band a record if only they come down to la where an industry “god” lives in a yacht off the Malibu coast. It’s a slithery world of mischief and deception and slippery hippy lilly pads where anything goes.
