    Or, is it "One Night Only" because people find out he's a fraud. If you wanted to pretend to be a folk singer in those days, maybe you had a cat. He's trying to get into this folk scene but he's not good enough. That's what this trailer tells me.

    The ending of this trailer tells me that this guy played by Oscar Davis is not musician or folk singer but that he pretends to be. Then it sais "One Night Only" That doesn't make sense so there is something special about the way he plays guitar and sings or is it just a film about a musician with a bad attitude? I like the way John Goodman says, "Your a folk singer, I thought you were a musician"? Whatever it's about, you know there is more to this than you think with the Coens.
