Gobble Gobble, Rabbit Rabbit and Ho Ho Ho, my friends!! We hope your holiday season has started with a blast – or a shock! We have The Electric, a Reno NV rock band, in the studio with us this week. They are, in a word, electrifying! Billy Gun fronts the band on guitar with a tremendous voice behind his lyrics. He is backed by Darin Goslar, churning out the bass notes, and Brooklyn Reiff holding down the drums.

Billy Gunn of The Electric smiling broadly

Billy Gunn – Whooo!

The Electric has been around in Reno for a while, but have not played a lot of local shows, preferring to build their fan base in far off places like California. Most recently though, you may have caught them in Reno during the OffBeat Festival at the beginning of November. They are laying low for the winter, while Brooklyn has a surgery after a gnarly accident, but The Electric will be hitting Reno hard come the beginning of 2016 with their debut album, which is in mastering currently.

Darin Goslar, smiling enthusiastically and giving a thumbs up

Darin Goslar – Noice!

These guys were a hell of a lot of fun and have a lot of stories, only some of which we actually recorded. Can’t wait to see them in action again in front of a live audience, rather than just us dumbfucks.

Brooklyn Reiff of The Electric, smiling and shrugging widely, earing a shirt with the Wicked Witch of the West throwing up her hands in gang-signs that look like "W W"

Brooklyn Reiff – I dunno!

If you are out and about this weekend, please don’t forget to come by Jub Jub’s for Marianarchy Winterball 2015: A Benefit for Eva Yellowleaf. Eva is a dear sister to the Jub’s family and the WLP family, and has been suffering from seizure since a head injury over a year ago. She means a lot to us and so it would mean a lot to us if you could stop by, enjoy some drinks and misc, and throw a couple bucks her way! It’s all the regular Marianarchy shenanigans over Dec 4th and 5th! You know your holidays aren’t complete without a little Marianarchy.

Thanks for listening!

It’s the most special time of the year!

The Worst Little Podcast – S5 E12

We gots some bare-bones, sharp as a razor, old-school punk rock for you this week, featuring Abandon Minds, a punk trio from Carson City. Abandon Minds is Johnny Thunderpiss on bass and vocals, Will Imnot on guitar and vocals, and the man himself, Handsome Greg on the drums. They have been playing together for the past 4 years, regularly making the trip up to Reno to play shows in that time. Drawing inspiration from 70s and 80s punk, Abandon Minds has a tight set of originals and covers. I think we squeezed in five songs this week. You can catch Abandon Minds at Marianarchy this weekend on Day Two. More on that later.

Ladies…

Also joining us is Dalien Effin Punk of Effin Punx Streetwear. Effin Punx Streetwear is a local clothing line, self described as “streetwear for the inner punk in all of us, born from the West Coast underground.” Daniel has been aggressively working it all around Reno, Tahoe, Carson and all points in between lately. You’ve probably noticed the stickers and Tees. If you haven’t you should.  Daniel is the kind of punk who puts his money where his mouth is. He has been sponsoring all these great punk shows that you’ve been seeing in the past nine months, helping venues and promoters attract bands and fans to live events. In addition to being a sponsor for Marianarchy XI, Effin Punx is looking forward to helping bring 7Seconds back home on June 20 at the Knitting Factory with The Briggs, Success and Machine Gun Vendetta.

Yeah.

It’s MARIANARCHY DAY ONE!!!!! and MARIANARCHY DAY TWO!!!!! Marianarchy XI!!!!!!

As you well know, Nick and Rory and a ton of other people work hard and have a special place in their hearts for this event. We say we take care of our own; and we do. We often help out members of the community who have strong ties to the art scene and are our friends. But it is bitter sweet when it is someone who has also worked hard at this event.  Like beneficiaries in the past, this year we are pitching in to help out someone who has played and attended many many Marianarchies (sp?), the lovely Ms. Rhiannnon Box. Also a former guest of the show as a member of Stabby Unicorn, Rhiannon was diagnosed with MS last year. Dead bears. With the blowing. This Friday and Saturday, please join us to pass the hat, play some music, have a good time and help a sista out! Silent auction and raffle with astounding local art, as usual, as well.

Thanks for Listening!
