Are you ready for this? Finally?
Hello fans and dedicated listeners!! Many apologies for the delay of the show. Serenity Awaits has been patiently waiting for their turn in the show. Ben, Chris, Charlie and Herman join us this week and it’s worth the wait.
These guys traveled a fair distance to join us and brought their best… well really, they’ve brought about 2 1/2 hrs worth of original material, but showed off only the best of the best. We have a lot of fun with Serenity Awaits. These guys have stories for days. Also – Herman speaks very little English so it’s a great chance to hear Rick improv his Spanish translations for Quiz questions.
Lots of great stuff happening in Reno right now: Foxy First Friday featuring Jen Scaffidi is this week, hosted by The Rev; just a few more weeks until Marianarchy XII: A Benefit for Kula Dunn; “King Lear” runs at Good Luck MacBeth until 5/21; Reno Sculpture Festival next weekend – all over downtown Reno; and much much more. Get off yer butt and go see some stuff!
Thanks for Listening!
Can I get a little love?
Trust Reno music to always throw something new and off the beaten band path. Heard of Elephants? is a wonderful conglomeration of some veterans of the Reno music scene. Jonathan Rolling, Matt Bad, Matt Karr and Lars Bateman form up this Voltron of folk-funk-punk-jazz. No, really! I didn’t believe them when they told me either, but that really captures a part of what’s going on with Heard of Elephants?.
Unfortunately, Heard of Elephants? does not have a website, but you can track them down over on the Facebookery and find out their show calendar. Their next show is down at the old Studio on 4th and you may just want to check that shit out, knowatimsayin?
In other happenings around ‘town’ Sassafrass Eclectic Food Joint in Carson City is hosting another Sassabration Diversity Festival on August 16th. Reverend Rory and Princess Bombs went down to check it out last year and had a great time, but this year, they are looking for more bands! That’s right – they want you! They are having an open call for entertainment at their celebration of Diversity, Community and Equality. Check out Sassabration application and contact details in the link.
Hear of Elephants is some good times. GO see them play live and buy them drinks. A stampede upon your ears. they are. Totally worth it.
Thanks for Listening!
Today was a good day…

Roxxy Collie joins us this week on the show. A new Reno rock band, Roxy Collie is a conglomeration of other Reno bands and bring some serious talent to bear.
Of course, Mr. “I’m in 8000 Bands” Nick Ramirez is in this latest project on drums. He backs up Steve Barron, Jon Cornell, Pat Rhea and the vocal stylings of the always impressive, Margy Ford.
We drink. We laugh. We tell an awful lot of dick jokes. Actually, no. Well, yes, there are dick jokes, but we didn’t have much time for talk, since the band had to kick our ears’ asses with awesome music. Coincidentally, the band is named after American Orinthologist Roxie Collie Laybourne. Since Nick was in the band, he couldn’t host, so the WLP Webmaster, Lord Stryse stops in to take the third chair. It’s always good to have him here with us in the studio!
Thanks for listening!
Welcome to spring in Reno – pack a heavy coat!

It’s amazing that we haven’t had them on the show before, but we are happy to bring to you the musical talents of Robert “Bobbo” Clark and Anthony Vairetta of Sil Shoda. Sil Shoda is a Reno rock band that has enjoyed some bit of notoriety in the past decade with their high energy shows and strong musicianship.
While they have been publicly quiet as of late, Sil Shoda has been furiously
masturbating recording behind the scenes; they hope to have a few releases hit the airwaves and internet this year, so be sure to keep an eye out for that as well as shows on their Facebook and reverbnation pages. Also – they are just a blast to bullshit with; I really mean it this time when I say that this was one of the most fun shows we’ve ever done.
Speaking of fun shows, don’t forget that this is your last chance to see “Sex, Drugs, Rock and Roll” at Good Luck Macbeth, featuring our very own Nick Ramirez. We get a teaser of the show with him at the top of the episode, so if you like what you year – go get some culture and see the show!
