Nonsense or genius?

Welp, winter is finally here people – lots of snow on the ground and a chill in the air. Big part of why we didn’t have an episode last week – sorry for the interruption in your steady Reno entertainment feed. But we’ve got you’r back this week – Anchors for Airplanes, a Reno hard rock band,  dropped by with a set of polished songs to impress us with. Anchors for Airplanes is Brandon Bianco (vocals), Travis Ambrose (bass), Cody Walker (guitar), John Wooten (drums); they’re a bunch of local boys who just like playing really really tight and perfected original music.

Brandon Bianco, happy to be here.

Anchors for Airplanes have been playing around Reno for a few years, building up a pretty decent following for their music. This is probably the most radio-ready and professional bands we’ve ever worked with – it was a little surreal, to tell you the truth. Typically Reno entertainment tends to be a little more … sloshed(?), but these guys waited so they could give us a great set. As usual, the show wasn’t exactly what they expected.

Cody Walker, surprised to be here!

You’ll be able to experience Anchors for Airplanes yourself at an upcoming show at PB&J’s, a great new music venue on 4th street (seriously, east 4th street is awesome these days, you should check out some of the great Reno entertainment, food and art happening over there). On December 12th you’ll be able to catch them over there with 36 Crazyfists, Enter the Yeti and Limbs of the Arbitrator.

Travis Ambrose, so good, he doesn’t even have to be awake to be here.

So, we won’t be doing the show next week – errybody’s too busy with Thanksgiving and family and crap to do the show. HOWEVER, Marianarchy – A benefit for Eva Yellowleaf is coming up soon, so please stay tuned after the break to hear more about the show! Eva’s family to all of us around the Jub Jub’s Thirst Parlor, so we really want to get the whole clan out.

Thanks for listening!

This show dedicated to Mike Maier who was with us in the very beginning, before Dogwater was a Studio and just an idea. Happy trails, Mike. We’ll miss ye.
