the melting pot
Gimme some good stuff!
We always strive to mix it up on the show, keep you on your toes. This week, we’ve got BLC Clothing in the studio! Shawn Harroun and Mike Weber are the brains and the brawn (not respectively) behind the Reno-based clothing line. In operation for just over a year, BLC clothing designs and sells lines of hoodies, men’s and women’s T-shirts, stickers and sexy, sexy underwear. Custom work is up their alley too.
Harroun and Weber also have their fingers in a bunch of pots, not just BLC Clothing. Weber is also a muckety-muck over at Weber Graphics, a family owned screen printing company in Reno/Sparks. Harroun, in addition to hawking T-shirts, slings drinks down at Third Street bar and has been known to spin a turntable or two. We have a lot of fun chatting with them around the table, and even have a spirited edition of The Worst Little Quiz.
Weber also plays in Death By Society, a Reno-based band. Unfortunately, his band mates could not make it. So it all came down to Harroun, who came through with some beats composed by friends of his. Oh, yeah – there’s the kicker: we got DJ music this week, for all the EDM fans in internetland. Check out the tasty treats from dBot, Miss Haynes and 6Blocc throughout the show.
Thanks again to BLC Clothing for being on the show.
One last reminder – A Tribute to “The Hazards of Love” opens at Jub Jub’s Thirst Parlor this weekend, February 7-9 & 14. Tickets are still available in advance for $12 at The Melting Pot, Prism Magic and Jub Jub’s Thirst Parlor; $15 at the door. A magical tale of innocence, love, villany, passion and betrayal with music and movements performed by a cast of Reno musicians, actors, singers and dancers, this show has a very short run of only four performances. A live staging of the Decemberists’ album, the Tribute to “The Hazards of Love” is a one-of-a-kind performance and a credit to Reno theater. You don’t want to miss it! All shows at 7:30PM, except for the Sunday matinee at 2PM.
Thanks for listening!
