Blue Envy – Episode 350

Hellooooooooooooooo, podcast fans!

It is I, your very own Reverend, back in the blogging seat once more! I’m happy to be able to bring you our 350th episode, a true landmark for all of us. We thank you all for supporting us along the way and your continued patreon-ship (see what I did there?). Here’s to another 350!

This week, Kim booked one of her favorite local acts, but new-to-the-rest-of–us, Blue Envy Blue Envy is Max and Keva, a smooth and powerful indie rock duo from the RNO. Keva and Max didn’t know exactly what to expect or what they signed up for, which is the way we like it! However, they ended up having a good time – we think.

Kim unfortunately could not make it to the show this week due to a family crisis. We send her all of our love and hope to have her back behind the mic just as soon as she is able. Chewie, on the other hand, is just stuck in a mine again. He has sammiches and a flashlight and we hope to see him eventually.

There’s lots of stuff going on in town this week. I should know, I’ve had to declien lots of invites, because the only thing I’ve got on my calendar is Marianarchy Marianarchy Marianarchy!

That’s right – Marianarchy XV: A Benefit for Shelby Paxton is upon us! Shelby is a good friend of the show and a long time service industry worker in the scene. She unfortunately was involved in a car accident some moths ago, requireing immediate surgery and a long recuperation, which is death in the service industry. We are only happy to help our friend.

This Year’s Lineup includes:

Reno We Have A Problem, Vague Choir, Heterophobia, Flood Fire Death Drought, Moons Of Vega, Todd Ballowe, Matt Howlett, Doyle Stewart, Nick Ramirez, Ozymandias, Condemned Existence, The Shames, Grimedog, XxX, Wily Savage,Ummm Jr., Dysfunctional , Johnny Harpo, Zach Ryan, Tom Plunkett, and Princess Bombs

As an added bonus, One Ton Dually will be opening for the Kyle Gass Band in the showroom on Saturday night! The OTD will be up at 9pm with KGB taking the stage at 10pm. Marianarchy will continue throughout the night though – think of it as a befgore and after party too! Unfortunately, tickets to see the KGB and OTD are a separate purchase. But if you come to Day one on Friday, you may have a chance to win tickets to see the show in the raffle! Or you can buy some from Nick or Rory!
