It’s not just the people on stage who make a scene happen – a ‘B-side’ to making shows happen. It’s also the promoters and booking agents who shed blood sweat and tears backstage, before, during and after every show. This week’s guest, Momo of Momo Promo, is no stranger to the trials and tribulations of being the go-between liason to venues and performers.
We get a chance to talk to Momo about bringing shows to Reno, the good times and the bad. We also spend a moment talking about her new project, Hanging Out Thursdays, a videocast featuring interviews with local bands! Next weekend, Momo Promo is also one of the hosts and sponsors of “Drag In Roll: A Virtual Benefit for Eddy House“. Follow the link for more details.
For your listening enjoyment, and in honor of Women’s March, Momo has also brought us a playlist of some of her favorite woman-fronted acts that she’s been able to bring to Reno. It’s a fantastic lineup we think you’ll enjoy. This delayed episode brought to you by COVID vaccinations – we (Rory) will be better about this next week – we (he) swears!
Thanks for Listening!
This weekend, Worst Little Podcast and Marianarchy Reno are proud to be co-hosts of an event organized by our good friend, Momo Mendoza of Momo Promo. The event is a Virtual Fundraiser for Shades of Queening, an advocacy and support resource for women of color in Reno.
Reno is a transient town and not nearly as diverse as other urban and cultural centers; the support systems that might exist elsewhere, based on family and community, especially for women of color, are not as strong as they should be in this community. Shades of Queening attempts to encourage and facilitate those networks and community development in a rapidly changing Reno.
Worst Little Podcast and Marianarchy Reno are honored to have been included in the hosts of this event which also include Momo Promo, Jub Jub’s Thirst Parlor, Grave Yard Shift Productions, Reno Pyrate Punx Chapter 21 , Loud As Folk, Alexandr Entertainment, and Hannah Chamber Productions.
The entertainment will include video (edited by Quinton Bunk) from:
Sad Giants, Lysteria775, Jill Marlene and Gabe of Wheatstone Bridge, Vague Choir, Jm LAce, Hired Fun, Terrell Street, Ummm Jr, Nordic Daughter, Knife Fight, Spike McGuire, Tommy and The Tongues, Grimedog, sCHIZoPOLITANs, JUST-IN Beaver, Donkey Jaw, Nick Ramirez, Heterophobia, Skitz Bebo, Christopher Chamberlain-Nonan, Pink Awful, The Sonic Dead, AL1CE, 7-Out, and Luke Wynn
We are still accepting donations for the auction, so please hit up Momo Promo on FB
Unfortunately, due to scheduling errors at the last minute, we were unable to record a show with Momo and Shades of Queening, so this week’s episode is a rerun of the Schizopolitan’s 2018 appearance on the show.
Thanks for listening!
