Late For Rent – The Kids Are Alright

S8 E5

Hello and welcome to another episode of your least favorite podcast! This week we have newcomers Late For Rent in the studio. We had the best time hanging out with Elleanor, Travis, and Michael this week. DAMN were they good.  Listen up to hear some minds actually being blown, some faces being melted, and to hear what’s coming up for the excellent folks who are Late For Rent. We’ve got deep, nerdy secrets, a cameo from a certain special former intern, and some kick ass storage unit metal.

Late For Rent knows their rock & roll, channeling bands like Cracker, Pavement, Fugazi, and Rush. I highly recommend seeing them live ASAP. Late For Rent is Elleanor Burke – Guitar, Vocals, Production/Engineering, Travis Rubio – Bass, Michael Maxwell – Drums.

Thanks so much to Late For Rent for spending their Monday night with us. We can’t wait to see where they go from here!

Skew Ring – The Shout-out Episode

S7 E37

Whoa baby boy did we have some fun with this week’s guest, Skew Ring! Little is known about this mysterious five piece band out of Reno, Nevada. That’s what we’re here for! By the end of this episode you will know far too much. Sorry, not sorry. Listen up to hear what the excellent Reno rock band, Skew Ring, has to say/play (spoilers: it’s mostly gay jokes).

Skew Ring has been around a short time and even after this podcast, little is still known about these elusive beasts. They have recently played The Saint and The Holland Project and there’s talk of an EP coming out soon. Keep an eye on their Instagram for updates on where you can see them in the wild. And trust me, you should definitely see them in the wild.

Thanks for coming on the show, Skew Ring!
