This week we have Johnny Harpo from Rigorous Proof back in the studio. Johnny sat down with us to discuss the state of Reno’s music scene (spoilers – Reno is killing it), the happenings at The Saint, and to play some original, never recorded tunes. You can hear the bands single, AK47 on 100.1 The X and NV89 Radio, and here right now!
Every Wednesday night you can catch Johnny hosting Music Industry Night at St. James Infirmary where he plays local music all night. Get your records in his hands, drink some St. James beer, and support your industry night.
Johnny Harpo – guitar/vocals for Rigorous Proof
Mother’s Day weekend, May 12th through 14th, is going to be BIG for local music. See Johnny with Rigorous Proof May 12th at GremFest and at Sculpture Fest Saturday, May 13th at 7:30. Marianarchy, a benefit for Hank Sosnowski, is May 12th and 13th. Lineups have been announced and can be found on the official Facebook Event page. Special shout out to Jub Jub’s for hosting Marianarchy. Check out their weekly Wednesday karaoke night hosted by DJ Chapin for a weird time.
Thanks for supporting your local music scene and, as always, thanks for listening!
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!

Hey Kids! How’s it going out there in the real world? That bad? Well, pull up a stool and listen to to some powerful depressin’ songs by this week’s guest, Myke Read, and feel better about yourself. Myke is better known for playing with the Infecto Skeletons, but recently he’s made a venture into the world of country music, acoustic guitars and prison songs. Chekkout how purty Myke Read sings.
Also in studio is Jenny PezDespencer, talking about her upcoming comedy show at Jub Jub’s Thirst Parlor. She will be recording a live album at this show, so it’s going to be a lot of fun! Listen in for the BIG CONTEST to win tickets to this live comedy album recording of Jenny PezDespencer, one of our favorite Reno comics.
Jeff Done, bright eyed and bushy tailed, hangs out with us during the show too. It’s good to see Jeff.
We3 also have a brief phone call with next week’s guests, Dan Harmann and Ky Alfred Hillig. Both hail from Washington and will be playing at St. James Infirmary on Monday 5/19, just after coming onto the podcast to record with us! Fun guys on the phone, we can’t wait to hang out and give them the Worst Little Quiz next week – they’ll have no idea
(unless they read this. which they won’t.) Take a sec to chekkout their music ans stop by the show!
Finally, lets not forget about this weekend – MARIANARCHY X – Friday, May 16th and Saturday May 17th. 30+ bands in two days! We’ve been raising money for 10 years to help out our Reno family and artists and non-profits, in honor of the late Marianne Psota, with huge support from the community. THis year’s beneficiaries are Keely Davis, a little girl with Down’s Syndrome, and Emily Reese, Reno teacher and personality on the Reno Tahoe Tonight Show on Nevada Matters and Renegade Radio, who was recently diagnosed with cancer after already having beaten it into submission. As we say around Maryanarchy, “Fuck Your Cancer!”, and now “Fuck Your Syndrome” joins the catalogue of Jub-isms. It is going to be another great show this year. Please come out and help us make a difference in someone’s life, once again.
Thanks for Listening!
