After a month away to get hitched and buy a house (congrats again!) we’re excited to welcome Rory back to the show! This week our hosts are hanging out with retro alt-rockers from Reno, Asphalt Socialites. Listen up to hear what they have to say about their favorite Reno venues and promoters (hi, Georgette!) and to find out about what’s next for the band (they’re coming for you, Los Angeles).

 

Asphalt Socialites are Robb Russo – Lead Vocals/Rhythm Guitar/Keyboard, Travis Echevarria – Drums, Ken Zimmerman – Bass Guitar/Synth/Backing Vocals, Scott Taylor – Lead Guitar, Keyboard.

Asphalt Socialites will be opening for Dennis Quaid (yes, that Dennis Quaid) and the Sharks at Whiskey a Go-Go at the end of this month. If you find yourself in LA make sure to grab some tickets to the show! Asphalt Socialites will be back in Reno in September with Desert Tundra!

Thanks to Asphalt Socialites for being on this week’s show and for the great tunes!

There’s a lot to get excited about in Reno this weekend. Thursday, June 1st is Reno’s favorite folk showcase, Loud As Folk at Pignic featuring the trans-pacific duo from Australia and America, Lawrence & Clare, with Josh & Sara, Grace Hayes, and Jonathan Rolling providing support. Friday night our friends at The Saint are hosting a Planned Parenthood fundraiser featuring Eddie and the Subtitles, The Grimtones, and Elephant Rifle. Next weekend, Nick and Rory’s band, One Ton Dually, is playing Sheas’s with Vegas band Three Rounds, Donkey Jaw and Juke Box Rebels!

Go out and see a local show!

Thanks for listening!

Welcome to the start of your summer season, Reno!

As I mentioned in last week’s post, Jess Blaze, local promoter and true believer, passed away in her sleep. We start the show with an audio tribute to Jess; we humbly share these memories  of a woman we all loved very much. She was also a big part of …..

Marianarchy 2012 setlist

YOU BETTER BE HERE!!!!

That’s right! After months and months of teasing it out – IT’S REALLY HERE!!! MARIANARCHY 2012!!!!!!! Friday May 18 and Saturday May 19!!!

It’s one hell of a line up this year, with the reunions of Phat Couch and Gunshot Licker on Friday and Saturday nights, respectively. There’s a raffle and silent auction, Happy-Hour Potluck, BBQ. Admission is whatever you can donate to the cause. This year, the proceeds will go to benefit the familes of Rev. Gary Setzer and Jess Blaze (who are secretly pissed that they’re missing this show, or so I’m told). The events will be emceed by yours truly, Reverend Rory. Come see me turn into Jerry Lewis over a 48 hour period!!!

Seriously, though – this is probably my favorite event in Reno every year. You should really check it out. Marianarchy is at the cultural heart of Reno and Ground Zero for a lot of the love and camraderie in the Reno music and sart scenes. It is really something special and you should check it out.

Dave Aiazzi_phixr

Dave supports free speech and press!

Also on the show this week is Reno City Councilman and Sparks-core native, Dave Aiazzi. Dave is a really good friend of Nick’s and a big supporter of our simmering arts scene here in Reno. He also knows how to take a joke (Thanks in advance for not getting a cease and desist on the picture, Dave). Irma Geddon jumps into the fray with some insightful questions about how people can get things done with the city, what happened to the Occupy Moana thing, and what is up with that airline food? For his part, Dave does not particularly care for the airline chicken plate. I think Dave had something he wanted to talk about, but we all kept badgering him with questions and cutting to the music. It was probably important.

Maybe next time. Ha?

At any rate – Come to MARIANARCHY 2012 at JUB JUB’S THIRST PARLOR! MAY 18 AND 19!!!!

There’s a White Elephant Rifle in the Room.

Worst Little Podcast – Episode 25

Sexy Vinyl

Some days, you just never know what you’re going to get.
This is going to be fun. I have no idea of what this podcast sounds like or what happens when the ‘tape’ was rolling. If you haven’t figured it out by now, this mightbe Rory. I wasn’t feeling too well this week and had to take the night off. Nick takes the helm this episode, hanging out with and entertaining the guys from Elephant Rifle. And since Chewie is still blowing us off, Rick had to be the wingman this week so we’re all fuckerd up.

Brad was caught unawares by the stealthy photographer.

One bit of exciting news is that we’d like to welcome a new sponsor – Grassroots Books. It’s a great new and used bookstore with low prices that rhyme with ‘ninety-nine’. Seriously, $10 bucks can give you an impressive looking shelf at home, even if you’ve never read any of them! They have sales ALL the time. Go there to show them that people actually listen to this show! Mention you heard about them on the Worst Little Podcast and GET A FREE BOOK!! Look at that, how we come through for you. Now come through for us! Check out teh Grassroots Books.

If Reno IS destroyed in a firey holocaust, I want it to look like this.

Back to Elephant Rifle: They have a new album out, as featured at the top of the post. Go buy one! Go see them at their next show, which I am sure is mentioned on the podcast, right, Nick? I’m pretty sure they are a really good hardcore band, but I’m going to have to listen along with you. They better not have fucked it up.I bet it’s a great show.Thanks for listening.
