This town never ceases to amaze me.

The Worst Little Podcast – S4 E13

It’s always nice to be pleasantly surprised by a band, especially one you’ve never seen or met before! Joseph Bonauro, Patrick Chapman and Kurt Gensheimer of Man Downstream decided to take the chance and come onto the show. They were recommended by loyal listener Jude Mayne. Turns out that Bonauro and Chapman have been in and around the Reno music scene for most of their lives – but didn’t know Jude. It’s Kurt, the newbie, that had the connection. Go figure!

That’s not the only way Man Downstream was surprising. They were all intelligent and talented and played some wicked songs. All of it was impressively put together, including their song ‘RNO’ – all about our favorite Little City! They have a fun sound, calling back to the funk rock fusion of the early 90s, but with a definite more ‘indie/garage’ edge to it all. They blew us all … away! They blew us all AWAY.

Check out Man Downstream on Facebook and bandcamp and youtube. You can also see them with Rigorous Proof, Bazooka Zoo and the Defabulators – but don’t because it’s during Day 2 of Marianarchy!

 

And finally – here’s the video of Nate the Intern’s ‘punishment’ for not cleaning Reverend Rory’s coffee mug:
