Spike McGuire and Fun Home – Graphic Drama

‘Sup, nerds.

It’s time for your weekly installment of the finest lowbrow art and culture that Reno can offer! This week’s antics are brought to you by FRIEND OF THE SHOW, Spike McGuire, and the cast of Fun Home, the Good Luck MacBeth summer musical! Director Jesse Briggs and actors Malary Engstrom and Imani Valle join us. Imani, a young version of the lead character, is one of the youngest guests we have had the pleasure of having on the show. SO, for the first half of the show is a riveting game of “Don’t Cross the Line!” Play along at home and guess who is the first to say something naughty!

Fun Home opens at GLM Friday, July 5 and runs through July 27, with 14 performances. The Artown opening weekend show is 90 minutes long and only one act, so be sure to get a drink at the bar… and then get a couple more drinks before you walk away. Livers gotta stay hydrated too!

As you may know, Marianarchy XV was a great success, as usual. The bands were cold and the beer was rocking! Nick and The Rev. are personally thankful of all the bands and donations and volunteering and good that went into the event to help out Shelby Paxton. We do good for ourselves, Reno, Thank You!

One of the highlights of the event was the concurrent show of One Ton Dually opening up for The Kyle Gass Band on Saturday night. Once again The KGB put on a helluva show for the fans!

This week, Kim booked one of her favorite local acts, but new-to-the-rest-of–us, Blue Envy Blue Envy is Max and Keva, a smooth and powerful indie rock duo from the RNO. Keva and Max didn’t know exactly what to expect or what they signed up for, which is the way we like it! However, they ended up having a good time – we think.

Kim unfortunately could not make it to the show this week due to a family crisis. We send her all of our love and hope to have her back behind the mic just as soon as she is able. Chewie, on the other hand, is just stuck in a mine again. He has sammiches and a flashlight and we hope to see him eventually.
