But it’s true! Carson City’s own dynamic musical duo, Raksha Paksha, took time out of their busy, busy social calendars to make time for little ol’ us. Raksha Paksha is a piano/drum combo comprised of Shaolin (vox/keys) and Carolyn (vox/drums) Gates. Carolyn, you may remember from Blunderbusst and Betty Rocker, is a powerhouse of a musician herself – so powerful that all of her children are extremely talented musicians in their own right. So, lets double down on some Gates-ness greatness.
While they are fairly new to the scene, Raksha Paksha already has quite the following from all sides of the musical continuum. They are going to be playing at a venue near you, very soon – but you gotta listen to the show to find out the details!!!
Speaking of shows, tomorrow night there are a lot of them! St Patricks day! We would be so humbly appreciative if you joined Nick and The Rev down at Davidson’s Distillery for some St. Pats Shenanigans and Sham-ROCK! One Ton Dually is playing with Reno We Have A Problem, Slutzville and Chadillac. Should be the best time you won’t remember all year.
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!
Don’t drive listening to DJ O Gnosis!!! But first, some deathmetal.
We’ve got a little different show for you all this week – lots of new stuff and a quieter. gentler podcast . Carson Cessna awkwardly hangs out with us – YAY!! a return of the Awkward Silence game!! Nick and Rory did very little show prep – and it shows! HA! Seriously though, super busy week with lots of stuff, like Rory’s failed Date Night with the wifey and Nick still looking for a job.
Speaking of jobs, Chewie is back out workin’ the mines, so doesn’t join us this week, but we hope to have him back before Burning Man. (Stay tuned for next weeks Burning Man Spectaculare!!! Or as we like to call it, ‘The Spectacular BM”!)
The other big highlights of this show include some
Italian Circumcision Rick’s Clips!!! He unearths some really revealing early samples of the Notorious R.A.D. as well as debuts some new ones. Plus – our very first commercial! One we made ourselves for Stingray Tattoo, so check THAT shit out.
Thanks for listening.
