Last to Leave – Still Hanging On
And away we go!
The Worst Little Podcast – S5 E32 – Download Link
Despite playing actively in Reno the entire time we have
not been broadcasting, Last to Leave is a whole new side of the scene that the podcast has missed. Skye Evans and Ken Shepherd join us and play some jaw-droppingly awesome music this week. The music is complex and full-bodied, toe-tapping and fun; the lyrics are achingly depressing – even on the ‘happy’ songs. Skye Evans (founder of the band and literally the last to leave Last to Leave) is graduating shortly and will be leaving Reno for northern climes. Bittersweet it is, to see him go, but we wish him well in the future!
Ken Shepherd on the other hand can’t get out of Reno if he tried. Shepard is currently still the bassist for The Whitebulbs and also Busking by Moonlight, a fantastic new indie blues act that you’ll be able to catch at the upcoming OffBeat Festival – this very weekend! You’ll be able to catch Last to Leave’s FINAL PERFORMANCE (that may or may not be true) at the Holland Project on November 17th.
We are all really excited about the OffBeat Festival. If you haven’t heard by now, click the link and listen on the show – this event will be insanely awesome. In order to make it so, legendary Phat Couch will be playing at Jub Jub’s on Friday night, along with Nick Ramirez, Forrest Day, Plastic Caves and Los Pistoleros! And all of this madness will be hosted by the Rev! And that’s just ONE SHOW on ONE NIGHT! This is a 4-day festival with 90+ bands in 13+ venues. We are lucky enough to have Steve Foht, singer for Phat Couch and longtime friend of Nicky visit us on the show. Though currently thriving in Peru, IN as the owner of Boondocks Food & Spirits, Fot was once one of the giants of the Reno music scene, way back in the nineteen-nineties! It’s a pleasure to have him on and will be great to rock out this weekend.
Anyway, get the details in the link or on the show. I’ll see you there.
Thanks for Listening.
