LAIDEEEEEEEZ! An gennlemen….. Proud to be presenting Strictly Business, featuring the maniacal talents of Captain Dano (Dan Davidson) and BIG JIM (Jamie Locks)! Strictly Business has been playing “Swamp Stomp Boogie” since 2014 here in the Washoe Valley and are a yip-hollerin’ hootenanny of a good time. The Good Mate, Nick Ramirez, steers them through the waters of this week’s episode, without the benefit of Reverend Rory (who was pulling super secret birthday superhero dad-duty that night). Reverend Rory (me, if that hasn’t dawned on you yet, O, Constant Reader) is damn sorry he missed out on this episode.
However, Strictly Business, as awesome as they are, are not the only guests this week, no! We also have Super Friend of the Show, and regular host of the Blazing Mics at Jub Jub’s Thirst Parlor, Britt Straw. Britt is here with us this week to talk about her work as a conservationsit and wolf advocate here in the Sierra Nevadas and Washoe Valley – and WOLFSTOCK 2015! August 16 at Jub Jub’s Thirst Parlor! A passionate woman behind an admirable cause, Britt Straw is dialed in when it comes to wildlife conservation and management.
And while we’re at it, we’re bringing back Hudson Flanigan of Source and SHAM and Stacey Tolle of Gunshot Likker and SHAM! They were in town for performances and appearances for the Nowhere Nevada movie premiere and soundtrack release last weekend. We love them so hard! It was great to have them around to celebrate this labor of love and all the good times at the end of a project a long time coming.
Love you. Thanks For Listening.
It’s a Brand New Year, but the Same Dumb Show!
Hi there! Did you miss us? We missed our pre show circle-jerks and all of you listeners over the holiday break. It was a great Christmas and Holiday and New Year’s season for everyone. And how about that weather? Huh? Pretty freaking nice if you ask me. I’ll take clouds and 60/70 degree weather over snow and grey skies every Christmas. But a little snow this year would be nice. It’s pretty to look at from inside. Where it’s warm. Anyway…
In the studio this week are our favorite Carson City duo, Blunderbusst! Jen Scaffidi and Carolyn Gates are always super fun to talk to, and totally on the ball, and super rad musicians. They did not disappoint; we all had a great time and they hammered out three lives songs for us. Great first show of the year, clocking in at about 2 hours. But the mouths on these women! Holy shit! They’d make a sailor’s tattoos blush!
We also hop on the phone with Stacey Tolle, currently with Austin’s ‘The People VS. De La Rosa’, but more importantly formerly of Reno’s #1 all time best band
(according to our listener poll) Gunshot Licker! She’s been back in town for the holidays and *gasp* IS PLAYING GUNSHOT LICKER REUNION SHOW ON FRIDAY, 1/6!!!! It’s a benefit for the Rev. Gary Setzer with the Shames, The Gunner’s Daughter and Blunderbusst at Davidson’s Distillery. It’s going to be pretty fantastic and fun and you should all come out. Seriously, if you live within 200 miles of Reno and haven’t seen Gunshot Licker, you NEED to come see this show. Shit like this just doesn’t happen very often. Yo.
Also Don’t forget – The Worst Live Podcast in Reno on Jan 20 at Jub Jub’s Thirst Parlor where for the first time we will be recording the show in front of a live bar audience! Contests and games – including a YELLING CONTEST!!! – prizes for the winners and a bucket of ‘suck it up’ for the losers! I expect to see you all there!
We’ve got a great year ahead of us and can’t wait to share another year’s worth of Reno music, art and culture with you.
Thanks for Listening.
