Spencer has been playing as JUST IN-Beaver for about two years. When Spencer isn’t playing with his other band, A Wormhole Could Kill Us All, he keeps audiences laughing nervously while he sings us acoustic songs about boobs and bath salts. Lucca G also plays in A Wormhole Could Kill us All, as well as Reno’s most sexual band, Grimedog. Click through to follow all the bands on Facebook and learn where to see them next!

Also here is the Rhino! He’s been a DJ in Reno since forever and recently he’s parlayed that career into the charity work he is here talking with us about this week. If you’re not caught up, Rhino has been working on bringing his Golden Gate art car and Silent Disco to sick kids everywhere by touring to children’s hospitals. The Rhino is for the children, y’all. We’re happy to get the word out about his art car land speed record and fundraising activities for this amazing project. We will keep our listeners updated about future events!

Spike McGuire and Fun Home – Graphic Drama

‘Sup, nerds.

It’s time for your weekly installment of the finest lowbrow art and culture that Reno can offer! This week’s antics are brought to you by FRIEND OF THE SHOW, Spike McGuire, and the cast of Fun Home, the Good Luck MacBeth summer musical! Director Jesse Briggs and actors Malary Engstrom and Imani Valle join us. Imani, a young version of the lead character, is one of the youngest guests we have had the pleasure of having on the show. SO, for the first half of the show is a riveting game of “Don’t Cross the Line!” Play along at home and guess who is the first to say something naughty!

Show poster for Fun Home, running July 5-27 at Good Luck MacBeth. details ant tickets available at www.goodluckmacbeth.org

Fun Home opens at GLM Friday, July 5 and runs through July 27, with 14 performances. The Artown opening weekend show is 90 minutes long and only one act, so be sure to get a drink at the bar… and then get a couple more drinks before you walk away. Livers gotta stay hydrated too!
