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.

Common Mishap – Young Turks (not Jerks)

Season effing seven.

Can you believe that? No one has made us stop bringing you awesome Reno music every week! (No one pays us for it either, but that’s another story.) From Nick, Rick, Chewie, Mr. Baker, the intern gang, and myself, we truly thank you for lending us your ears every week. It’s been a lot of fun and we hope to keep on doing it long past it’s relevancy. But today! Today we ARE relevant!

Colin of Common Mishap

Colin

The young men Common Mishap are our first guests of this new season. Common Mishap, a Reno indie rock band, is Callum Burgener (git/vox), Mike Leland (bass), Colin Willis(git) and Garrett (drum). All battle born and Reno-bred, Common Mishap is a throwback to the basement shows of yesteryear (the 90’s…. or last year if you live in Reno) with complicated melodies and screaming angst and titles that have nothing to do with the pretty musics. (Really good stuff, actually)

callum of Common Mishap

They were actually a Dogwater Dick find. He went out of his way to connect Callum with the Rev, which is saying something. So we weren’t sure if they were hot, dumb punk rockers or what. We were pleasantly surprised when they turned out to be a bunch of perverted heathens with good music.

Mike of Common Mishap

Mike

On the younger side of 21, these guys are actively looking to get out of the basements and into the venues. They recently had a successful show at Holland with some out of town bands. Common Mishap does not have much of an online presence as of yet – they have a Twitter and a bandcamp… and a facebook page with a whole lotta nothing. You can also listen to their full length album on Spotify, which is pretty nifty. (It was good walking music the other day.) I hope to see more of them in 2017 and beyond.

Join Reverend Rory and Jeff Done at Foxy First Friday this week. It should be a good ass time.

Thanks for listening!
