The Habituals – Warning: May Be Habit Forming

Hello and welcome to your favorite weekly Reno music podcast! We’ve got an extra full house this week. All your hosts and two interns welcomed my favorite garage-surf punks, The Habituals, to the show for the first time. Press play for the usual shenanigans, some cool art from our new intern, and some killer music from Tahoe City!

The Habituals are Kat Atomik-Vocals, Tom Odenheimer – Guitar, backing vocals, Dave Burright – Drums

They describe themselves as rock and rollers from the cold, dark mountains of the Sierra Nevadas, bringing their version of garage-surf-psycho-punk to kick in your eardrums and move your feet. We here at the podcast concur. Thanks a ton to the band for coming down from Tahoe to spend their Monday night with us. Be sure to see them at Born Dead Productions annual Zombie Ball in South Lake Tahoe on October 27th! Follow them on your favorite social media platform to stay updated for future shows.

This weekend in Reno is BANANAS. if you’re not planning on going to the Zombie Crawl, I highly recommend the following shows:

Infecto Skeletons – Back for More

S8 E25

Hey gang! Long time no hear! It’s been a crazy month with cancellations and surgeries and travelling and a whole bunch of other unexpected things, but we are finally back! Most of us anyway.

Nick, Rick and Kim welcome the Infecto Skeletons back to the studio. Mike and Andrew stop in to talk about stuff. Now, this is Rory doing the post and guess what – I haven’t listened to the episode yet (shocker, I know), but I do know one thing that they are talking about on the show: the new album. That’s right! The long awaited second release from Reno’s favorite scuzz-punks will hit the internet this weekend, and for a limited time, you’ll be able to download “Get Your Shit Together”, absolutely free!

After this though, it might be a while before you can catch them: in September, they are headed out for the Lost Skeletons Tour – a wild West Coast tour with Lost Idea, so grab the album while you can, learn all the words and wait patiently to forget them all while you puke on Justin’s feet in front of the stage at their next show in Reno.

Grimedog – It’s A Family Affair

S8 E24

Welcome to the Sausage Party!!! We’re happy to have Wolfman, Lucas and Hurricane from Grimedog in the studio today. These three Reno punks croon their way into your ears with a blend of 50’s rock, modern punk and effed up stories. And then, there’s the music. All kidding aside, we never stop kidding on this show. We should have been recording 20 min before the start of the episode because of all the funny shit we were saying. Unfortunately, you just got what was leftover.

Wolfman Grimedog, playing guitar and singing

Wolfman Grimedog

Wolfman, Lucas and Hurricane are Grimedog and a family – Father, Son and Brother/Uncle…. in the normal way, like respectively, not anything weird…(god, you guys are gross). Their familiality and familiarity has not bred contempt, (at least not currently), but a tight trio of Reno garage punk. Musically and conversationally, they work together as a cohesive unit, covering and picking up for one another as needed. For all the bands who played on this show, they seemed least perturbed by not being able to see the drummer. Anyway… they are a lot of fun to riff with and have some great songs. They’re working on a full length at Dogwater, so look for it later this year. You can catch them next at Boshee Bash out at Pyramid next weekend.

This weekend, the big deal is Northern Nevada Pride 2018! Break out your rainbow formal clothes and glitter cause it’s time to be fabulous! Or not! #dependingonhoweveryouselfidentifyandexpressyourself !!!!! Reno Pride is something that has become very important to our communities; it wasn’t always here and this town has not always been as tolerant and accepting as it is… ironic as that might seem to some of us. It is awesome that it has survived and grown and become a linchpin of the local civic calendar and highlight of many people’s year. Please go out and support the festival on Saturday as well as the associated events all weekend long at all of your favorite LGBTQ venues and establishments, new and old.
