For Valentines we get bromantic. Three rad dudes from established Reno bands like Ostracized, Grimedog and Filipendejo among others, Lucas Grimes guitar and vocals, Tyrell Cruz bass and vocals and Kevin Montoya drums and vocals are the new super group and power trio BANG MARRY KILL.
Funky and reminiscent of funny jam acts like Ween, Primus and the more obscure Gluey Brothers.
They’re a rocking dance band really. Super joyful and lighthearted with heavy grooves and cool psychedelic surf tones with a squeeze of desert rock. And Dessert Rock if you’re hungry.
We had a blast with our friends in Bang Marry Kill and get to know Tyrell a little better with a round of the worst little quiz.
You can get down with them at the upcoming blood-spattered valentine show at Alturas’ Cellar stage. Keep collaborating and creating new music Reno! We are definitely loving the results!
Happy VD! Life is short and we love you. Thanks for listening. Thank you so hard!
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!
We are back with folkin’ funny lady Canyon White!
After a lengthy discussion about colonoscopies and cheeseburgers, we dive right into catching up with this longtime northern Nevada musical nomad, and friend of the show.
Canyon always has a full schedule including hosting open mic sessions, radio shows and acoustic performances.
She is embarking on her One Hit Wonder tour and living 2024 with un-resolutions. Canyon is a lot of fun, and we wish her well in her future endeavors, perhaps including a children’s book and album? We think she’d be great at it.
You can find Canyon White on Facebook, Spotify and other streaming platforms.
Life is short and we love you.
Thanks for listening!
Howdy Reno neighbors and neighborenos! We are back with a fresh new band to meet and explore.
It’s 2024 and the young folks are still punk rocking for the betterment of mankind and for the sheer fun, absurdity and love of it all. These antiwar, pro equality anarcho-punx, Death Means Profit are comprised of Lilith vox, Gwen guitar, Silly bass, and Colin drums. They all hail from different regions of northern Nevada and 3/4 are graduating high school this year.
They bring the youthful exuberance and primal kick in the pants the music scene always needs. It’s got a skate punk vibe with the spirit of both English punk, like Subhumans and SoCal hardcore like the Germs. It’s a chaotic underground sound, short songs with a ton of progressive angst. Total freedom to do whatever they want, all making for a wild spontaneous and unpredictable live performance.
Their next appearance will be at the Reno Punk Rock Flea Markets next event. Punk Rock Prom? More on that later from our very own Kadillac Kim, who met Death Means Profit at Neutral Ground at the Holland Project and we just want to thank her for booking the band this week. Kim rules!
Thank you worst little listeners.
Life is short and we love you.
Welcome back and happy new year! Season 14 kicks off with the hardcore metal act The Latest Fashion!
With local luminaries in the Reno music scene, Chris Tuffino on drums, Benjamin Tyler Brown on bass, Tony Jensen on guitar, Corey Nuckolls also on guitar, and Jeremy Granata bringing the monster vocals. They’re all amazing musicians from other notable bands like Twelve Gauge Facelift, Vampirates, In This Moment and Fervence, just to name a few. They’re like a Reno hardcore super group!
Super tight, super heavy and super rocking. You can tell they all love and enjoy performing with each other. They have genuine chemistry and they’re funny! We had a blast getting to know them and their music, live!
YOU can catch them live, January 20th at Virginia Street Brewhouse opening for Fear Factory, with Cyanate and Orbit Culture. Check in with them on Facebook and Instagram.
It’s great to be back with you worst little listeners. Thanks for 13 fabulous seasons and here’s to another round in 2024! Let the games begin!
