I’m late! The White Rabbit died.
Hey everybody – sorry about the late post this week. Super busy with the first week of school for The Rockstar Girl and stopping by the hospital to see Her Stitch-lyness. Kinda dropped the ball on this week. Will you forgive me? No? Dick. Fun and fantastic episode this week and totally NOT awkward at all when interviewing my ex, Cheyenne Leigh, about her new business. Abridged Works. She makes hand=crafted jewelry, purses and hair thingys out of old books that were going to the recycle bin. Lots of fun – unique and cool. Someday, it’ll even start paying the bills for her. Someday…
Also, we got big, bad Brian Sutherland, Executive Producer for Nowhere Nevada to come in and pimp the movie a little bit. Just a little. Really, we couldn’t get back to him because Cheyenne kept flapping her gums. As a tribute, we peppered the movie with a bunch of songs used in the soundtrack for Nowhere Nevada. Very sweet stuff. Lots of great tracks. Check out the website and watch the movie trailer. It looks better than we thought it would!
OK, I wanna wrap this up so you can listen to the show finally.
Thanks for listening.
Lies and mendacity!!!!
First, I’m on the defensive. I want to clear something up – I did not call in well! Rick was trying to call in sick and we had a last-minute cancellation, so I rearranged my life. Then Nick calls and says we’re still doing the show. Bitches be trippin! I was fully prepared to do the show this week, SERIOUSLY! Then life happened… and I hung out with my kid and learned a song on the GEEtar – sue me. OK, enough rationalization and onto the show.
In addition to the regular weekend recap, we find out that Chewie has a stalker in his neighborhood, cabs will not stop to pick up Felix, Nick is temporarily hooked on Vicodin and Rick sat around the house and polished his… microphone, all alone. Fun and exciting! Shocker alert – Felix got really drunk and blacked out last weekend after a show!! Wow! It’s a fun show, despite being sans Reverend. Chewie busts out some old tracks from the Vault and we get to hear a little music from Reno greats Cranium, M.C. Gob, The Line, and War Maggots.
Lots of great stuff happening around town this week. Thursday night, Melvin Makes Machineguns are headlining the Summer Music Series at the Alley. Friday night we’ve got Boot to the Kool , Merkin, The Kanes, Miracle Drugs, and The Firebombing at The Knit; Antique Scream, The Shames, and Walk of Shame at Lincoln Lounge; and Black Sheep of Kali, Glacier and The Harvest and The Hunt at Shea’s. Saturday you can find CRUSH and Smiley Mikey at Sidelines; and the Blitzkreig Pop dance party with DJ Endif and Hyperkarma at The Biggest Little City Club.
Don’t forget to come on out to support your open mics all across the city EVERY night of the week. I of course am going to remind you of the Strega Sunday night Open Mic and THE WORST LITTLE OPEN MIC IN RENO at Jub Jub’s on Monday, brought to you by US here at WLP. THis week’s host is the Madman, Matty Waage… and as always, Nick and Rory and Chewie will all be in attendance for some amount of time.
Anyway, thanks for listening!
Nothing hotter than the Sofa King Miserable Heat Wave, amiright?
Wasn’t sure what to expect when I booked Paul Allen on the show this week. I mean, I knew he was a good musician and quirky lyricist – I liked that about him – but, the dude, like, only ever plays in living rooms and porches, right?!?! I wasn’t sure if Paulie was up to it, frankly. He might have frozen up or even peed a little in the studio. Then Rick would have had to rub his nose in it, whilst bellowing, “NOOO!!!!” (Yeah, I just said “whilst”. Is there a problem?
(Other than my blatant aggression and latent personality split?)) I am happy to say though, Paul came through and really knocked our socks off. He only froze up during the Worst Little Quiz, but still got a respectable score and beat himself silly.
Lots of great stuff happened in Reno, lots of great stuff coming up – I think we talked about a lot of it during the show. I’m pretty sure we did, but it’s kind of a blur – and I was sober this week! The Notorious R.A.D. is back in Reno and will be cutting up some new drops in the studio soon (that means to record funny things, it is NOT a euphemism for drug use – what do you think we are, Californians?). We had a lot of fun on this episode, and only got a little bit gross. That happens in our new segment – Dogwater Dick’s Disgisting Definitions. It’s really, well, not good, but funny as hell.
Please don’t forget to come out and see the live show! What live show? The Worst Little Open Mic in Reno, that live show! Every Monday, Nick Chewie and Rev. Rory will be down at ye olde Jub Jub’s Thirst Parlor hosting the open mic. We want to see new faces, people jamming, people bringing their new songs, new bands, parts of old bands – we even have a drum kit and bass rig set up every week for anyone to come down and borrow. We’ve had a great couple weeks so far, and want to keep it up. Even if you can’t come every week, please still stop by every once in a while. (NEW BANDS: this is really kindof optimal exposure and a chance to play for a live audience; don’t be dumb.)
Anyways, thanks for listening!
No really – we totally offended him on this episode!
So, I’m a little drunk and blazed as I write this. More so than usual. I kinda forgot what day it was and that I needed to put this up – kinda lost track with visiting the hospital and stuff. On that note, thank you Reno for being such a kick ass town! We have raised over $4,000 for Kelly Proud while she is laid up in the ICU. Fuck your mystery ailment, Stitch! We miss you!
Anyway, I would like to proudly announce that in this episode we actually offend Jeff Done. Listen for it! He even says so. We take a little journey back through his musical career, From ‘Pennies’ to ‘Tiny Private Dancer’, which is featured in the upcoming Reno movie, Nowhere Nevada. Jeff might come off like a slobbering bulldog, but he is a pretty damn good songwriter, singer and lyricist. Who’da thunk that this punk Reno thug would keep being this talented!?! During the podcast we talk a bunch about Ty Fritzsching, former lead guitar for Stevedave; the Stevedave, Dump Your Boyfriends and Dale Kellams show over the weekend; and a whole lot of other mildly offensive things. We learn a lot of revealing things about Jeff an Lydia during the Worst Little Quiz when the gloves come off!
We were actually supposed to have all of Stevedave on the show, but everybody forgot, so we just got Jeff… OK… So really, I’m drunk and just want to get this done. lots of cool stuff this weekend – listen and find out, bitches!
Thanks for Listening!
