Some days are just made for sleeping in.
Hey Kids – how about a spooky podcast? Well, tough shit. Halloween is now over – it’s November and we all know that means it’s just 50-some odd shopping days until the burning death and destruction predicted in the Mayan calendar! In Studio this week, we have Eric Foreman, Daisy Foreman
(no relation), and Rhiannon Box of Stabby Unicorn. If you want to know what they soud like, I’d hazard that it’s 80s goth/dance music with the sensibilities of 90s shoe-gazer rock… or something like that.
Sorry it’s late again this week, but it’s a busy freaking season right now!!! Lots of great stuff happening over at the DOgwater Studios, including the release of the great (Un)Discovered 2012 comp, originally recordded in the backyard back in the beginning of the summer. Stabby Unicorn is on it, so is Rev. Rory – but he sucks and totally froze up. Stabby Unicorn didn’t – they killed it. Contact CherryBear Records or Dogwater Studios for your very own copy!
I’ve gotta run do this is about it. Go see Stabby Unicorn! Problably the best new Reno band this year, IMHO.
Thanks for listening!
Bring it, son!
So, I’m late. Again! And I’ll just apologize right now – this post is just gettin’ it done. No disrespect to The Big Bad, but between a computer meltdown, the (Un)Discovered comp Release on Tuesday at the Dogwater Punkin’ Carving Party, The Nowhere Nevada Carnival at Jub Jubs on Saturday, and the Rocky Horror Halloween Bash with Pinky Polanski at Cargo tonight at 8p and 12m, I’ve been slammed for time! And Not going to be my most thoughtful post yet.
I didn’t even actually make it to the show this past Monday because of a tech rehearsal for RHPS. Nick manned the ship this week.When I saw him later at the Blazing Mics open mic at Jub Jub’s he just told me, “Those guys are amazing.” I for one will just say, I really really like The Big Bad. Every time I have gotten to see them, they have killed it. New frontman Tree Woods is an old friend of mine and what he ads to the stew is like putting ghost chile’s on top of a roasted habanero curry powder! These guys are HOTT!
OK – well I gotta go talk to someone about gold speedos. Go watch The Big Bad sometime. Morgan, Spencer, Clint and Tree are about as genuine and sincere people and performers as you’re going to get in Reno. Bring a date and get down to that shit.
Thanks for listening.
I could talk to this woman all damn day.
Hey, friends! It’s good to see you again! Whether you are at work, at home, Portland or Zanzibar, I hope you’re ready for some face-melting fabulousness. DJ Heidilicious came by to stomp on the studio this week and knows how to party, bringing her signature box o’ Franzia with her and getting us a little wine buzzy. She’s been really active in the Reno EDM scene this last year, playing clubs, promoting friends and organizing shows. Heidilicious is down for the scene and thinks it’s time for the scene to get down. We’ve never had a DJ like her on before and it was fun to watch her work.
DJ Heidilicious is also a part of the Reno Sound Collective, a group of local DJs that are putting on shows together sometimes at your club or other times at the house down the street. I personally really enjoyed watching them on Ustream a few weeks ago when I was at home doing laundry and housecleaning. To borrow a phrase from the 80s and 90s, it was some dope-ass shit. Heidilicious gives us a few tastes of the sonic goodness – a teaser, if you will. Her beets will trickle right down to your feets, shakin’ those hips on the way down.
From the gang, Rick Nick and Rory all talk about their weekends (although Rick’s weekend is EASILY the best story). As usual, they scope out the coming weekend for you with some of their picks of shows to see. DJ Heidilicious also has some upcoming shows, so please support some local music and check her ass out.
It’s a nice one. We aren’t afraid of the beats and neither should you be – get out ans see something different, hang out with people you don’t know – it could be fun.
Thanks for listening!

There’s a whole set of awesome young musicians in Reno. We’ve talked to some of them on here before. Scarlet Presence is definitely one of them. These rock and roll rippers sat in with us with the full setup and shreddecd out some great tracks for us. Singer and Guitar-er, Michelle Coleman; Drummer, Carter Stellon; and
future pizza delivery guy Bassist, Jonesy Pelsue invaded the Dogwater Studios this week to kill it for us. Michelle has got some powerful pipes and plays guitar like she was born with one in her hands. The boys round out the rythm quite nicely – but let’s face it, it’s all about her.
Besides the awesome that is Scarlet Presence, we also had some great phone interviews this week. First up is Rev. Rory’s long-time and very good friend Lucio “Reverend Screamin’ Fingers” Menegon. Lucio moved out to NYC from the Bay Area some time ago and is back for a West Coast Wake up call. He’ll be performing at Reno Art Works this Saturday for a night of music, noise and art. Also on the show is comedian Justin Russell who will be appearing at the Pioneer Underground Comedy Club all weekend long. The call with him could have gone better, but we had some severe lag issues.
Lots of good shows coming up this month – including Scalet Presence at the alley on the 18th, and Strega on the 20th. Also want to mention the Rocky Horror show at CommRow on Friday the 26th – featuring live music by Pinky Polanski and emceed by Reverend Rory AND the Nowhere Nevada fundraiser on Saturday the 27th. It’s October – one of the best show and pary months all year, so stay tuned!
Thanks for listening!
