Brian Groh is almost too credible in the key role of Dave Smoker, an obnoxious maverick who thinks performing in conventional venues, or even having a name for his band, would be selling out. So he and his no-name group give guerrilla-style concerts in parks and on street corners. When the lead singer quits, Dave enlists a new vocalist: Kate Shaw (Molly O’Brien). She offers a few suggestions — for openers, she thinks the band needs a name. Not surprisingly, Dave doesn’t embrace her ideas. Despite the abundance of cliches and predictable plotlines, “Meet the Mosaics” manages at least one novel twist: Right from the start, Kate identifies herself as a lesbian. The sparks that fly between her and Dave have nothing to do with sexual magnetism, and everything to do with opposing philosophies.
