Dusty Fosterboard, a young Toronto kid, loves the energy and authenticity of British 1960’s music – so much so that he models himself and his band, The Cocksure Lads, after it. But a trip by the band to England teaches him a lesson: that he has to find his own path to authenticity. THE COCKSURE LADS is a tribute to the innocence as well as the classic sounds of the 1960s British Invasion.
