S8 E13: Ep 295
We are so lucky this week to have one of the BIGGEST little guests we’ve ever had the pleasure of coming through Dogwater Studios. Ladies and gentlefolk, all the way from the former East Germany and… other(?) parts East… World-wide sensation and controversial media darlings, Hedwig and The Angry Inch! – Do you have what it takes to be a superstar? Do you have the balls? Would you sacrifice your balls for fame? Your pain is nothing.
We are joined in studio by the cast of “Hedwig and the Angry Inch“, as presented by Brüka Theater and Good Luck Macbeth Theater. We do NOT have, Joe Atack, Amy Ginder, Eric Foreman, Rhiannon Box, Daisy Foreman and Nick Ramirez in studio. No! We have the very actual, for really really reals band, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, “escorted” by director Bill Ware. What follows is a very off the cuff and revealing interview with this controversial international figure, Hedwig, and the band that supports her. There are some very shocking things that happen behind the scenes with these Eastern European rockers.
If you don’t already know what “Hedwig” is, I’m not going to tell you: you’ll just have to go see the show.
“Hedwig and the Angry Inch” will open at Good Luck Macbeth’s new space at 124 W Taylor St, this Friday, April 20, and will run through Saturday, May 12. Complete show dates can be found on the theaters’ websites, or the Facebook event page, as linked above. Tickets are available at Brown Paper Tickets. Sources suggest that there will be many audiences at capacity and you may want to get tickets in advance to save yourself some money and make sure you can get your seats. As a joint production by two of the most edgy theaters in Reno, “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” is a first in Reno independent performing arts – and hopefully not the last. (EVERYBODY WILL BE THERE – GET YOUR TICKETS SO YOU’RE NOT LEFT OUT).

This week we welcome Rory back to the show but not in his normal capacity as he is one of tonight’s guests! Also missing but present is Mr. Nick Ramirez. Nick and Rory, along with band-mates Spike and Jackson are here as One Ton Dually, and they’re ready with like six songs, so hold onto your tits, dear listeners. Listen up as Chewy and Kadillac Kim attempt to fill Nick and Rory’s rather large hosting shoes/chairs. We’re here talking about murders and Reno and Murderino’s!
But enough about us, let’s talk about the BAND. One Ton Dually is a rock and roll band from Reno, NV, singing songs about fast drinking and hard wimmin (yeah, they made that a word). The band describes themselves as a 4-speed good time transmission with top of the line suspension and a powerful engine under the hood. I’d take that for a ride, and you should too.
One Ton Dually has recently played at the Saint and Shea’s, which is to say they get around. If you know what I mean… Like their Facebook page to learn about new show dates and to link to their music.
While you’re waiting for One Ton Dually, be sure to check out the following awesome-sauce events in Reno.
This Friday is Foxy First Friday with host Rory Dowd, featuring Mike Metzger. Apparently Mike is well recommended by many low-life musicians who own guitars. I mean, that’s what the internet has to say and the internet is never wrong. If you want to challenge the internet, or if you just want to hear some great live music, get to Foxy Olive by 9 p.m. 21+ No cover.
Saturday punk bands U.S. Bombs / Abandon Minds / Another Damn Disappointment share the stage at Shea’s. 9 p.m. 21+
If you haven’t heard, Sunday is the new Saturday in Reno. Check out the Violence Creeps / Negative Sex / Murder Dream at the Holland Project. 8 p.m. all ages. $5
For all you Burner’s and would be Burners, Monday through Wednesday is the annual city wide party known as The Great Depressurization, presented by our friends at Fresh Bakin’. Decompress and readjust to the default world with excellent entertainment by the likes of Kelly Proud (details here), The Utility Players (details here), and big name DJ’s. The three day event takes place at The Eldorado, Silver Legacy, and Circus Circus in Reno, and MontBleu Resort in South Lake Tahoe. Click through to see the full lineup.
If you need a break from the casino traffic, go to Cargo on Tuesday for Saving Banksy / The Great Bingo Revival at Cargo. See the film, stay for the party. 21+ 8 p.m. no cover
That’s all I’ve got this week and this is where I’ll be. If you have events you think I should go to let me know! I’ll do just about anything once.
There’s no show next week thanks to Labor Day, but we’ll be back on September 11th with Riptide Bandits! Thanks for listening Reno. You’re the best.
Todd Ballowe, noted Reno musician, performer and bon vivant, comes by the studios this week, bringing the ever lovely Jole Rector along as well. I’m sure it was swell, but Reverend Rory was not in attendance. Intern X only took two pictures – FAIL!. Nick is playing at Pignic tonight, Thursday 8/4/16 with Loud as Folk. Reverend Rory has Foxy First Friday with Delani White. Go see some stuff.
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!
