Hey folks – sorry for the delayed posts – some personal complications got in our way. But back to the show: This week, we have John Underwood, multitalented Reno musician.
Thanks for Listening
Congrats on stumbling upon our humble little podcast! This week our hosts sat down with the Adorables to talk some utter nonsense and hear some really great political folk punk.
The Adorables are a bit of a Reno super-group. All three members have been involved in the Reno music scene for years, with impressive stints in some of Reno’s finest rock bands like Stabby Unicorn, Pinky Polanski and Liver Scars (among others!). The Adorables are playing Marianarchy for the first time this December.

Thankfully we’re not burning and we’re not flooding! Our hearts go out to everyone affected by the recent natural disasters. We love you. This week we’re joined by JUST Rory and Rick because they told me not to come in. It’s okay because I really *was* scissoring the drummer from SWIGS. You guys were all spot on. ANYWAY! Y’all are in for some great instrumental surf punk, some talk about old naked Satanists, and jokes about me (Kadillac Kim, in case you’re not following along) hooking up with our podcast guests! We even have new interns to make fun of! Don’t worry guys, you too can be like me with enough ambition and a vagina… oh wait. As fun as it is to talk about incest and Satanism, we actually have a band here, so let’s get into some music.
Riptide Bandits have been around for a “really long time”, according to band members. They are so legendary they don’t even need to know when they formed. It is as if they always existed. They might be vampires.
Riptide Bandits is Leif, Grouch, Andy, and Jonathan. Keep an eye out for upcoming shows at Headquarters Bar in October then at Marianarchy! You can see Jonathan with his other band, SWIGS, on September 22nd at Alturas on the DL! They join The Habituals for an End of Summer Tiki Party. Let’s make tiki torches great again!

John Underwood breezes back into town, fresh off tour, and stops in for a private final performance of the tour, just for you! While you might not be impressed that a solo guy just came back from a NW tour, it’s a little more complicated than that. I walk into the studio and John is surrounded by no less than 9 instruments, replete with horns and a rhythm section, one foot processor and a couple mics. And he plays them all on all of the songs. It was insane. Despite a
n enrapturing and butt-numbing 13 minute song, it was truly a treat of a performance.
Also in studio, we welcome back our good friend, Evan Humphreys! You may remember Evan from such project as: The Rocky Horror Extravaganza, Pinky Polanski, Aversion Therapy and… The Worst Little Podcast Theme! Today, Evan has another project he wanted to talk about. Pull the Plug Audio, a Reno NV off-the-grid performance audio company. They have hi-performance audio equipment that runs on high-performance batteries, perfect for outdoor or mobile events such as Burning Man or Reno Earth Day 2015! Pull the Plug Audio will be providing sound to the two main stages, as well as 2 or 3 more side stages, all day on Sunday. If you’re interested in ‘green’ tech or cordless gear, these are the guys you want to check out and ask questions of. Even spoke techno-babble. It was like listening to opera in Italian and I don’t speak Italian.
Lastly, bust mostly firstly in the show order (so if you’re listening and reading this you already know what I’m about to say) , we take a long distance call from our good friends in KARMA! They are ensconced in studio in New York right now and actually recording themselves while we tried to called them and then, Oh! hilarity that ensued! Good to talk to the kids. If you miss them ornever heard of them
or are a lukewarm, but like to be in the know you can check them out this coming May 1st! A live feed of their performance at The Bitter End, “New York City’s Oldest Rock Club” will be available. THey say they’ll be up at 10PM PST on a friday, so check them out before you head out. Pre-party with good KARMA!
Thanks for Listening!
