reno roller derby
Nick randomly met these guys playing beer pong at the CalNeva. They’re fucking awesome. I think this is our longest episode EVAR.
Hello everybodee! Hope you’ve been having a great couple of weeks and enjoying the end of the summer; we all sure have. Between Burning Man, the Rib CookOff, The Discovery Museum Opening, the Balloon Races, Reno Aces, art shows, rock shows and some pretty spectacular weather, Reno has HELLA been the place to be. Nick regales us with
a bunch of “this one time, at Burning Man” crap some great stories from the playa. Rory can’t stay out of the spotlight so he tells SOMEBODY ELSE’S playa story that he’s already heard. Nick has more epic tales to tell, but we couldn’t fit them all in this week. He’s going to finish up with his journal in the next few episodes, but we had to move on to more immediate exciting things – like our gursts Del Mar.
Unlike most of the artists and performers on the show, we didn’t really know of these guys except by reputation before the show, so it is an episode of discovery! (Not like that!
Unless Rick (or Rory) needs to fess up to something. ) Matt Bode and Mike Martinez of Del Mar stop by this week. If you don’t know, you really should check them out. Great surf/rockabilly/drunkpunk/cowpunk from some local kids, including a female singer, Nicole. The kicker is that the two dummies we talked to somehow hooked up with the fantastic talent of Bud Gaugh (Sublime)! Unfortunately, Bud and Nicole couldn’t make it tonight, but we’re going to try to get them all in here in the spring.
This is a SUUUUPER long episode – it hits the 1:40 mark! I hope you’ve got some time to kill. Our little one hour show keeps growing and growing! Thanks to loyal listener Jude Mayne, we just hit 150 likes on Facebook! (although, that number could be higher, slackers… Tell your friends to like us! Even if they don’t! We’ll play the fake internet friend game!) Once again, it’s been a lot of fun. Thanks for listening.

I’ve really got to stop plugging next week’s episode*…
Chewie’s back in the house with absolutely nothing interesting to say about working in Winnemucca. So instead, we talk with bur biggest celebrity yet: as seen on basic cable between the hours of 11pm and 6am all across Washoe Valley, the fabulous Mr. Tom Plunkett. A multi-talented creator and artist, Tom regales us with tales of high colonics and ruining Shakespeare. He also plays some pretty mean guitar while visiting the Dogwater Studios.
But Tom is not alone this week. Irma Geddon from the Battle Born Derby Demons stops by to plug the season home opener at Lawlor this Saturday. IF you’re not familiar with BBDD, let me explain: girls on wheels+scoring system+mild violence=awesome. The sport has seen a resurgence in the last number of years all across the country and the Battle Born Derby Demons have been representing Reno with pride. Irma also has a super sexy voice. You would pay to listen to her read a phonebook. Trust me.
NEXT WEEK: somebody cooler than me?
*(So, last week I mentioned that Greg Allen was going to be on the show this week, but we never got a confirmation. Greg left me some jive ass message about being abducted by aliens and anally probed by his modem. Whatever, cool guy. We’ll talk later.)
