Can you git up wit’cha git down? We got Failure Machine on with us this week. That’s right, the (second) triumphant return of our beloved FIRST production assistant, Spencer Kilpatrick and his bandmates, Clinton Philbin, Harry Mahony and Zac Curtis. I know – I hear your surprise – there are now FOUR members of Failure Machine, because they added a horn section
(there’s actually about to be five, but the bassist isn’t official yet, so fuck him).
We also take a call form a representative for PostWar. Francis? Frederick? Franklin? Don’t know the guy, was really confusing, possibly on drugs. Luckily, PostWar frontman, Sutafe Bogale, came homand saved us from a trainwreck of a phone call. They have a show TONIGHT at The Knitting Factory with Bluff Caller and Cad Bane. You should chekkit out!
If you have to wait for the weekend for your party time, don’t forget to check out Failure Machine at St. James Infirmary Friday night, with The Letters Home (LA) and Hungry Skinny (SF)! Good ol’ Spencer says it’s gonna be a wild rockin’, foot tapppin’ dancin’ kind of night!
I would be remiss if I did not mention the addition – nay! the doubling of members of the band since last we saw them. Failure Machine has added a horn section! I like to affectionately call them “The Hairy Sac Blowers”, but Harry Mahony and Zac Curtis seemed to be less than thrilled. Fuck them too then, It’s my show. Nice guys, though.
At any rate, Thanks For Listening!
Bring it, son!
So, I’m late. Again! And I’ll just apologize right now – this post is just gettin’ it done. No disrespect to The Big Bad, but between a computer meltdown, the (Un)Discovered comp Release on Tuesday at the Dogwater Punkin’ Carving Party, The Nowhere Nevada Carnival at Jub Jubs on Saturday, and the Rocky Horror Halloween Bash with Pinky Polanski at Cargo tonight at 8p and 12m, I’ve been slammed for time! And Not going to be my most thoughtful post yet.
I didn’t even actually make it to the show this past Monday because of a tech rehearsal for RHPS. Nick manned the ship this week.When I saw him later at the Blazing Mics open mic at Jub Jub’s he just told me, “Those guys are amazing.” I for one will just say, I really really like The Big Bad. Every time I have gotten to see them, they have killed it. New frontman Tree Woods is an old friend of mine and what he ads to the stew is like putting ghost chile’s on top of a roasted habanero curry powder! These guys are HOTT!
OK – well I gotta go talk to someone about gold speedos. Go watch The Big Bad sometime. Morgan, Spencer, Clint and Tree are about as genuine and sincere people and performers as you’re going to get in Reno. Bring a date and get down to that shit.
Thanks for listening.
