reno punk rock flea market
Hello, loyal listeners! Rev. Rory here and it’s good to be back from my sojourn deep into the land of Navel Contemplation. As usual, a lot on tonight’s show was completely unexpected – including my appearance on the Patreon portion of the show (if you don’t know what I’m talking about, follow the link and subscribe). It really is great to be back on the bus with my podcast cohorts and friends.
First up, we take some time to talk with Jessi ‘Sprocket’ Janusee, Communications Director at The Generator and Founder of the Reno Punk Rock Flea Market, a dynamic makerspace extravaganza, now celebrating it’s 5th year! The Generator has just opened at it’s new location this year – a warehouse space almost twice the size of the last, leading to more opportunity for controlled chaos and fun. The event is going to be pretty insane, with everything from local art vendors to a regional punk rock band lineup with over 25 acts to Drag Queen Story Time for the kiddos to a pugil stick gladiator ring and much much more. It’s really one of the best local events around – and you can’t beat the price $5 per day or $8 for both days, leeaving you that much more money to buy local art! And if you’re interested, you can inquire about becoming a member of The Generator and taking advantage of all their makerspace and educaiton al opportunities throughout the whole year!
We also welcome back to the show our good friend, Eric Marks. Eric is the bassist for Enslave the Creation, a local technical metal band, and that’s how you met him before. But! There is so much more to this restless creative. In addition to bassing, Eric is also a well known photojournalist whose images have appeared in many local magazines and journals (Reno News and Review, This Is Reno, Reno Tahoe Tonight). He is also the lens behind the images of Reno Street Photography, a more artistic and ground-level view of some of the corners of our fair city. We talk a lot about his work over the years.
If you’re keeping your ear to the ground, you probably already know this, but in case you don’t: Psychedelic Jazz Rock Group, Apollo Suns, from Winnipeg MB Canada, is rolling through Reno on April 14th for their “Relationships of Force Tour”. The group is absolutely going to blow your mind and the doors off at The Elbow Room in Sparks. Starting at 8:30, local Nuclear Funk group (and upcoming podcast guests), Phat Mark, will open up the night and get you feeling right! Follow this link for details!
That’s all I know, folks. SO, as usual: Thanks for Listening
Do ya like punk rock, kid? I can get you some punk rock right here.
Ummm Jr, Reno noise aficionados and scream mechanics, are the next victim to be drawn into the WLP lair. They stasrt out with a bang and just keep going. There are no slow songs, no chance to breath. Just crazy mad, crazy fast and crazy fun.
Ummm Jr is Taylor, Andrew, Derek and DAVID (yes, it is David. I listened to the show and checked). They have been quick to insinuate themselves as one of the bands you want to play with. The music, while loud, screamy and raw, is terribly dancy and rather catchy. It’s not hard to see why everyone wants them on their bill.
Thanks for listening!
S9 E2 – Ice and snow be damned! Nothing stops the podcast, especially not when we have a guest like Bryan Jones to grace the studio. To catch you up to speed, Bryan is a seasoned Reno musician, notably with Buster Blue, but consistently with his own solo work, including his current project, Buffalo Moses. After a brief sojourn in the far off hinterlands of… Seattle, Jones returns to Reno to really
sabotage launch his career by making an appearance on our show.
The conversation swings about wildly as we relentlessly pepper Jones with questions, often simultaneously. He calmly answers most of our questions, with the patience of a weary teacher dealing with unruly children. The music, of course, is top-notch – including some brand-new WLP EXCLUSIVE tracks.
In other Reno news, don’t forget to check out the Reno Punk Rock Flea Market this weekend! 18 bands, dozens of local DIY vendors, a children’s corner, car smashing and more! If you missed it last year and spent the year rolling your eyes while you listened to everyone else talk about how rad it was, DON’T DO THAT AGAIN! It’s as cool as we say it is – trust me!
