MERRY CHRISTMAS, MOTHERFUCKERS!
I’m not going to get into it this week. We have Rikku in the studio and Ashley Polanski, local thespian and performer, to talk about Good Luck MacBeth and their new location. (The Dr. Sketchy thing was actually last night… so… whoops). Rikku sings soem songs, forces us to sing with her, then sings some more as we talk inappropriately over her head.
Listen to the show. Get drunk. Have warm fuzzys and hold the person you love tight.
I’m going to be thinking about a girl in Portland that I miss and drinking a steaming glass of whiskey.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Rory, Rick, Nick, Josh, Spencer, Shaun and all of our families.
We do all this for you and couldn’t do it without you!
Thanks for Listening!
We took a week off last week in light of the national tragedy – too many voices yelling in your ear. But here we are, back on schedule with:
We kept off the interwebz last week, given the national tragedy and a small personal tragedy we talk about on the show this week (hint: Rev. Rory can not use the word ‘gainfully’ at this time). While the announcements on the show are as dated as say, last week’s episode, the music of Betty Rocker never gets stale!!! Carsonite trio of power rockers, Carolyn Gates (bass), Rick Charles (drum) and Betty “Carla” Rocker (git) made the trip up to Reno to hang with us at the old smelly studio.
While they’ve only been playing for less than a year, Betty Rocker has quickly developed a following around their tough, tight sound. Gates, you may remember, is also the drummer for Blunderbusst, another one of our favorite Carson bands. We’re kind of having an amazing invasion of great music from the relative isolation of our state capitol. There might not be much of a scene for entertainment down there, but they are breeding performers like bunnies on a ranch!
Oh. It’s also Intern Spencer’s last show with us; it’s also his first show running the whole thing. SO any awkward or technical difficulties (like that time the power was out for 2 hours) is totally his fault. If this show sucks, it’s his fault. Rory says “yea, no” too much? It’s his fault. Your coffee doesn’t taste right? His fault. I hope we’ve all learned something from this experience.
Keep your ears posted for Betty Rocker shows in the next little while.
Thanks for listening!
Hey-o! After a bunch of scheduling and technical difficulties, we got this episode off the ground and plowed through, coming up with something like a show! Tom McInturf from Red Mercury* showed up this week to save our ass by being the gurst. he was happy too since he’s here to plug the latest Red Mercury* album, “When Galaxies Collide”, a concept album. Some of the music is new, some written just for the album. It was about a year ago that the whole band, including Mike Adragna and Morgan Hough came on to rock it out live.
Unfortunately, Red Mercury* joins the long line of Reno bands that break up right after they record an album. Morgan was stolen away in the night by Spencer the Intern to play with The Big Bad. It was all going so well too until Tom attacked Spence in the hallway… just kidding, but that would have been awesome, right? Try harder next time, Tom.
Also joining us via the tele-ma-phone is Susan jones, a Seattle area comedian, who will be appearing at the Reno Tahoe Comedy Club in the Pioneer Underground this Friday and saturday (11/30 and 12/1). Susan brought the funny! She is the kind of comedy guest we like – chit chat, jokes, plugs, jokes and out. Like a boss! ZI may sound a little disinterested in the tape, but I was dealing with some of the aforementioned tech difficulties during the show. (The new phone doesn’t work like the old one… 🙁 ) But we like her – mildly inappropriate and edgy, Susan Jones is a ton of fun. No really, shes a BBBW. Check out her webside WannaRollAFatty if you don’t believe me. Also be sure to check out her show at the Reno Tahoe Comedy Club – it will be being filmed for a DVD! So get out there and get your voice on a DVD, right before she shuts you down, heckler!
Also – don’t forget the following weekend! Marianarchy, Marianarchy, Marianarchy!!!! Marianarchy Winterball 2012 – A Benefit for Tom Plunkett!!! December 7 and 8 from about 4pm until 2 am both days. As always, 28 local bands coming together for one good cause – helping out the awesome Tommy Plunkett. And fuck cancer. Please be there, if just to stop by and say hi. Nick and Rory will be running around, keeping the whole show on track – at least until Rory gets his birthday drunk on! Can he do 10 carbombs in one day and still be an effective host?
Be able to get laid? We shall see…. Looking forward to seeing all of you there!
Thanks for listening!
Some days are just made for sleeping in.
Hey Kids – how about a spooky podcast? Well, tough shit. Halloween is now over – it’s November and we all know that means it’s just 50-some odd shopping days until the burning death and destruction predicted in the Mayan calendar! In Studio this week, we have Eric Foreman, Daisy Foreman
(no relation), and Rhiannon Box of Stabby Unicorn. If you want to know what they soud like, I’d hazard that it’s 80s goth/dance music with the sensibilities of 90s shoe-gazer rock… or something like that.
Sorry it’s late again this week, but it’s a busy freaking season right now!!! Lots of great stuff happening over at the DOgwater Studios, including the release of the great (Un)Discovered 2012 comp, originally recordded in the backyard back in the beginning of the summer. Stabby Unicorn is on it, so is Rev. Rory – but he sucks and totally froze up. Stabby Unicorn didn’t – they killed it. Contact CherryBear Records or Dogwater Studios for your very own copy!
I’ve gotta run do this is about it. Go see Stabby Unicorn! Problably the best new Reno band this year, IMHO.
Thanks for listening!
