S14E5-Drought: High and Dry
We had a rocking good time hanging out with Trevor Lame-Vocals, Guitar Cheyenne Cha Cha-Bass and Jake Sticks-the drummer who are now collectively known as brand new baby low fi sonic punk band Drought.
Only a half a year in the life of Drought and they’re already landing some great gigs and of course their debut on our show. Well, that’s not entirely true, drummer Jake also plays bass in doom metal outfit Ozymandias and has been on WLP a couple of times. But never isolated to the drum room, separate from everyone, so it was a whole new experience.
They play us their loose and primal punk rock, warts and all to our delight. They’re not polished but they’re chaotic, salty, playful and a little dangerous. Rock and roll rebels fresh from the garage that Jake plans to turn into a venue.
We have a dirty little quiz and Kadillac Kim shares the fantastic lineup she has booked for this year’s Reno Punk Rock Flea Market. It’s always a treat to meet new bands and watch them grow. We will be keeping our eyes on Drought for sure.
You can catch them February 16 in Nevada City at the Fern with Slutzville and the Arguments as well as headlining The Blood Spattered Valentines Day Show February 17 at the Cellar Stage (aka Alturas) in Reno, with Two Man Lemmon Band, The Poor Devils and next week’s WLP guest; Bang Marry Kill.
Proof that Reno keeps it rocking, new bands are being birthed all the time and we’re glad we get to share a little bit of that raw beauty with you. That’s what we’re here for, after all… Life is short and we love you.
Thanks for listening!
