Guitars and violins and mandolins, oh my! Once again, we are happy to welcome the folk-tastic troupe known as Wheatstone Bridge to the studios. This time we get some familiar and new faces – Jill Marlene, Zeke Griffin, Gabe Hilton, Steve Barron, Natalie Laster Jones and Amy Willoughby all join us for a wildly tangential show. You know, the “yoozh.”
Although a music-heavy show, we do find time to delve into the Wheatstone DNA and overlapping connections of this folk music juggernaut. We get to know the new-to-the-show additions to the lineup and get to hear some wonderful harmonies about addiction, mothers, D&D and whiskey! (Whiskey makes a gust appearance for most of the show.)
We also get a chance to dial back the time machine and hear the origins of Natalie and Dogwater Dick’s life-long friendship sometime in the 1750’s, on a mud farm. Eventually, the conversation gets weird and we start talking about male prostitution… as we do.
Please check out Wheatstone Bridge’s folk/Americana stylings at their facebook page.
Thanks for Listening!
New set coming up!
Hello, boys and girls! We hope you’ve been behaving yourselves this week (mostly). Up next on the show, we have Gabe Hilton, an up and coming Reno musician and songwriter. Born and bred in this City of Trembling Leaves, Gabe has grown up around the Reno art and music scene. He’s also NOT a tweaker, loser or asshole – go figure! He’s actually an accomplished young performer, having been a driving force behind the recent staging of The Tribute to the Hazards of Love and the lead vocalist in the same.
Hilton is next set to appear this weekend at the Knitting Factory for the first time at the Night of Acoustic Appreciation on Saturday, March 1st. How about that? People spend years, decades even, humping their ass to get a little notice around town, in the hopes of getting onto a big stage; this little shit puts on a show and plays at a couple open mics and get son the bill! Hopefully he’s talented enough to hang with the likes of Myke Read, Mason Frey, The Westside Digs, Estebo Estes, My Acoustic Heart, Adam Springob , Whitebulbs and Jenera Paxton.
Despite no Chewie this week, we have a fun show with Gabe Hilton! We’ve all had pretty exciting weeks – Reverend Rory’s been dating someone; Rick has an upcoming date and Nick is still happy in love (despite evidence to the contrary above or anywhere else). It’s a fun time with a mix of covers and originals by Hilton. Check him out on Saturday at the Knit and an upcoming show on the 6th (details inside!)
Thanks for listening!!!
Did’ja miss me?
This week we have a whole episode about what’s happening in Reno this weekend! What a shock!
The first thing we’ve got is Wildstock! A benefit for the Wildflower Village. Organized by Michaeek MacMillan, Wildstock is a threeday blast out at the Wildflower Village, home to a gallery, absinthe bar, pub, the Iris Room and 2013 Nada Dada. It’s going to be a great event with lots and lots of local Reno music, burlesque, comedy, fire and much more!! Your very own Reverend Rory will be playing a set afternoon as well as emceeing most of the day.
Mike brought a couple performers from the event with him – Gabe Hilton and Jill Marlene. While these two wonderful Reno musicians performed together as a mother-son duo on the podcast, they are actually playing in separate groups during the Wildstock event! Oh, Reno, you are a juggernaut of talent…..
Old friend of the show, Elgin Alway also comes by to promote a comedy review that he’s put together at the Studio on 4th this Friday night. Should be a lot of fun, with three Reno comics and one from Sacramento! He’s also involved with a RAW Artists Reno show on the 22nd. Listen for details!
Also, while you’re out, don’t forget to check out the Biggest Little Lemonade Mixer, brought to you by Reno Arts & Exchange at Jub Jub’s Thirst Parlor! Going to be a new networking event with performers and vendors and booths and LEMONADE!
Well, that’s all I know, so again, Thanks for listening!
