It’s hard to keep a good man down – and we’ve got two good men on the show this week: muralist Joe C. Rock and event promoter Steve Emmerich of Fresh Bakin’. We are also featuring select music form some of the bands playing in the upcoming virtual Reno Punk Rock Flea Market: Valentine’s Slay, this Saturday 02/13/2021 on an internet near you.
Seriously – we could not have had a better pairing of guests this week. We delve into the state of the arts in Reno from perspectives we don’t usually get (non-musicians affiliated with the music scene). Joe reflects on his recent socially-distant art show at Sierra Arts; Steve laments the void… and the lack of ability and opportunity to put on shows.
While we wait for the entertainment world to return to a semblance of normalcy, please go support and watch the RPRFM Valentine’s Slay this weekend and buy some schwag. Kim and Ian have been working hard to make this come together with the rest of the RPRFM crew in support of The Generator. There are going to be a bunch of great acts, including, but not limited to: Weapons of Mass Creation, One Ton Dually, Ozymandias, Kanawha, and more!
Thanks for Listening!
Better than ever!
It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood and we’ve got something for our special friends. Memory Motel is back with us again! These guys are collectively one of our favorite band in town. CJ, Sam and Ben drop in to drop some tunes – or so we thought! There’s a lot more than that on the show though!
Learn the secret meaning behind the name, “Memory Motel”! In my personal favorite segment this week, hear Rick and Sam duel using soundboards!! Listen to Ben forget how to use a microphone!!! And so much more!
Catch the boys this weekend with The Bonfire Set, Love Like Wes, American Goodfellas and Ladies and Gentlemen at The Alley! That is one hell of a lineup with some great local talent that you do not want to miss!
This weekend is also the kickoff for NadaGras 2014 at the Morris Burner Hotel. If you haven’t been in yet, it’s a great new art facility in town. If that’s not really your style, head over to the NMA and check out the Maurice Sendak exhibit that just opened up!
Thanks for Listening!
I am so full of fail… again.
Wolpertinger in the studio! Who are Wolpertinger? Well, aside from including Gary Kephart, Wolfgang Price, Tommy “Cancer Survivior” Plunkett and Rich Washburn – listen to the show to find out more about the fantastic personalities that are Wolpertinger. What does Wolpertinger sound like – well, either listen to the show or check out Reverend Rory’s review of them in his most recent “100 Word Bias” column in the latest issue of Reno Tahoe Tonight!
I should really apologize to the guys from Wolpertinger for the lateness of htis podcast – Halloween really kicked all of our asses, with the Punkin Carving Party, the actual night of, friends’ birthdays, drinking heavily and all the other usual stuff. But I hope they can understand that no offense was meant – Dogwater Dick and Reverend Rory are just lazy assholes.
Well, I ought to sign off and work on the next podcast so that it’s not late – check out our next episode with Small Drawings!!!
Thanks for listening!
Late post this week. GIANT tech switchover at the Dogwater Studios
(Rick bought a new computer and is still working out the bugs) but we persevered! AND WERE TRIUPMHANT in the end. (Rick’s always triumphant in the end) We got Actors Killed Lincoln on the show this week. Well, most of em anyway… the REAL musicians of the band, Kent Irwin, Matt Kaminsky, Dan Lyons, Jenkins and Alan Kaminsky all showed up. Zach Reese, however had more IMORTANT things to do (like a competitive grad school program or gay sex). But they also persevered and were triumphant!!!
Actors Killed Lincoln threw down and played their bad-ass music in a bad-ass way. We talked a little about their upcoming CD release, which is already available online here. The show’s a little short this week, due to time constraints, so after a few songs we got right into the Worst Quiz in the World. With all five of them, it takes a while!
Well… I want to get this in your ears, so I’ll cut it short. Shout out to Reno Computer Fix for the assist in helping Rick get a great computer!
This is a great show. Really. Listen. Listen harder.
And, THANKS for listening.
