Justin Larkin – Suitcase Kickdrum
Our guest this week hails all the way from Springfield, Missourah. Travelling troubador, Justin Larkin, has travelled the earths to play for you today. You may have caught him this past week at the Shoe Tree, but by the time this is published, he likely has left the area and is delighting people elsewhere.
Justin is a kindred spirit to any in the Reno music scene – playing all the instruments and with all the musicians. He brings a homegrown grittiness to his songs that definitely sounds like home to Reverend Rory. Justin is also the cousin of our own homegrown virtuoso, Michelle Belle, and the show includes a visit from her as well.
It’s a full studio this week – full of people and stories. We get in to the big festival of a few weeks ago, the John Waters show, and get to hang out with not one, but two Ians.
Unfortunately, we also say goodbye this week to an important and bright star in the Reno underground – Kahele Dunn. A sister, friend, and scene-mom to many, she passed away this week. Our hearts are with her brother, Kula, and anyone whose life she touched (and there were many). A big giver of big hugs, Kahele would be hugging us all firmly this week. Hug your loved ones.
Thanks for listening.
