This week we have Blacklisted which consists of Freddy and Derek. You may know them from Corner/Store – formerly The Tides. They are currently an instrumental band. However, they are looking for a singer. Bassist could be necessary as well. Inquire within.
Typically this is when we would tell you where to see them live next. Not the case this time. They are still working on their thing. Keep an eye on the Blacklisted Facebook page for updates. This weekend at Jub Jub’s Thirst Parlor will be Skate Jam 2016 though. Plenty of great bands playing that event.
Everyone send Rick a little love. Think about him, hug him when you see him next, send him an “I’m thinking about you” text, or hug someone you love right now because life is short, and we all love you.
Here is a picture of Nick that is full of more cool than you can shake a stick at:

Valentine’s Day draws near, Reverend Rory is out of the country, and we get that loving feeling with the lads of CRUSH. Aaron, Daniel, and Jimmy talk about getting the band back together, their newer direction, and how Pharrell killed their “Happy.” Check out how they define fuzz rock with their new tunes.
At Jub Jub’s this Friday you can rock out at Bands for Bernie. The Atomiks, Roxxy Collie, Wheatstone Bridge, Mikie Shame & Nick Ramirez will all be playing. On Saturday Spectre Records will be celebrating their one year anniversary with a concert in their store. Alphabet Cult, People With Bodies, and Flores will be playing. Based on what Dogwater Dick had to say, you should be keeping an ear out for some new Murderock soon.
Catch CRUSH this Friday, February 12, at MidTown Wine Bar. Fun starts at 8 P.M., goes until 11 P.M., it is 21+, and there is no cover. That means FREE! Grab your date and get your V.D. started early.
Go hug someone, tell them they are beautiful, and let them know they are loved! Then go catch a show.
It’s a whole new world!
It’s the first show of a brand new season! It has been a giant blast to have been with you all for the last three years and we hope you stay with us for many more!
This week’s lineup is more random than usual. First up, our musical guest, Glynn Osburn. At first glance, he’s a typical Reno skate punk, but Glynn runs much deeper than that. Having been brought up on the teat of Reno music, Glynn has himself entered into the ring and brings powerful vocals and killer music writing. He’s been making the rounds at a lot of open mics in 2013, so I don’t think it’s going to be much longer before we see this guy in a band.
Additionally, we have visiting with us Hanna Rodgers, owner of Centurian publishing. Centurian iteslf is an adult erotica catalogue that has been in business (including “male” order) since the 1960s. The publishing company however also puts out a number of fetish or BDSM magazines including titles like Forced Womanhood (submitted males), Enslaved Sissies (submitted males) and Transformations (transgendered). She talks about her publishing company and a little about the fetish scene, but mainly she came in to support our final guest…
Xelena! Empress of the Impossible! Xelena is professional mentalist here in Reno, divining your thoughts from the mysteries of the cosmos in some ineffable way that will mystify and mesmerize your mind! She set up a trick with The Rev at the open mic last week and this was the conclusion of that. Batting 1.000 on the show, Xelena proceeds to pluck the answers to puzzles out of seemingly thin air! Additionally, she sealed a Superbowl sports book ticket in an envelope and gave it to Reverend Rory in anticipation of this week’s big game. The reveal is going to be at the open mic night on 2/3 – you should show up to check it out.
Additionally Xelena has a show coming up on February 16 – a Gallery of Mystery and Fetish at the Wildflower Village, featuring Mental Mysteries, Erotic Art, and Gender-Bending Humor, Some of the art samples will be out of Hanna Rodger’s personal and extensive collection.
That’s all for now.
Thanks for listening!
It’s gonna be a great season!
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.
It’s 5 o’clock somewhere. Do you know where your drink is?
Howdy, kiddos! Hope you’re having a great week!
Despite the fact that I still am wounded by the cold, bitter sting of him going out for a pack of cigarettes and never coming home, and he looks like Eddie Vedder mated with a brillo pad, we have the ONE AND ONLY Spencer, The Intern back on the show today! He brings with him, the always amazing Clint Philbin once more. In the fallout of The Big Bad, the two of them have teamed up to form the rocktastic and groove-makin’, Failure Machine. Two-man, distorted Motown covers and originals, they don’t need no stinkin’ band. They give us a bunch of double shots of songs and lay it down.You can follow them on Facebook or bandcamp if you want to check out some of what they do.
We also get down, if you will, with Murdoc Brickel. Murdoc comes to us from The Night Of Fetish and Fantasy(NOFF) 2013. Put on by the National Leather Association of Northern Nevada, this annual event is for fetishists, kinksters and sexy people of all levels and persuasions. Murdoc himself is a total freak and pervert. He kinda made the guys uncomfortable by being even MORE naked than Rev. Rory (who always wears nothing but a bow tie and a smile). But we had a lot of fun talking about the event that is THIS WEEKEND at Candela’s Nightclub.
Thanks for listening!
Do what you love!
Super fun happy good times on the show this week! Craig Prather stops in for some studio time, promoting his brand spankin’ new CD “No Limits”. Reverend Rory’s brother, Mike , is in town and keeps the third chair warm for Chewie while he’s gone. And we had absolutely NO technical difficulties. None whatsoever. Nope.
Craig Prather is a super guy and collaborative musician – his CD is a two-fer! With a ridiculous number of songs on it, it is a double CD release, all for the price of one! We chat it up, talking about his experiences and the scores of Reno musicians he’s worked with in the past few years. Seriously! Craig Prather can name-drop with the likes of Tom Gordon and Nick Ramirez!
We have a lot of fun, but really the Worst Little Quiz does not fail to disappoint this week. Despite such different guys, they were running a pretty tight race right up until the end, and kabbblaaaammmmm! Everything changes. You gotta listen!
Don’t forget to checkout Lighter Theif at the NadaDada event this Friday at Wildflower Pub. Also Reverend Rory will be emceeing The Best In the West Burlesque Showcase during the Reno Rockabilly Riot at the Grand Sierra Resort this weekend.
Thanks for Listening!
“It’s not the guest’s fault – it’s all mine.” – Reverend Rory
WARNING: I want to start this post with a warning. I, Reverend Rory Dowd, am a big bucket of fail this week. Right out of the gate, I faceplant into a brick wall, every joke I tell and bit of information I say in the first 30 min of the show is wrong wrong wrong WRONG! I apologize in advance. But I was SAVED-uh! Josiah Knight, Reno singer/songwriter, comes in and plays some really killer tunes for us, picking the show right back up. This guy is a new-ish friend to all of us (within the last 365, at least), and a welcome addition to our music scene.
We are also saved early on in the show by a fun interview with Dustin Kaufman of the Weediculous Comedy Tour. He and three other LA area comics are travelling around the country in a minivan, filming a documentary about their tour and the state of marijuana culture in the US today. Many of their stops are in dispensaries and cafes, but here in Reno – we got them coming down to the Shea’s Tavern!! Thursday night, 5/9 (today for most of you) at 9pm he and his cohort will be kicking it off – filming it live for a documentary that should be up on Netflix … at some point. (As we know from Nowhere Nevada, a movie is only finished when it’s done!) Opening up for them are Reno Comedians, Jenny PezDeSpencer and Brandon Lara! Good times….
Before I ruin anything else, I’m going to sign off.
Thanks for Listening!
They do it down and dirty. Who? The Kanes, that’s who! On this week’s episode, Greg Gilmore and Adam Springob of The Kanes come in and play us a few songs off of their upcoming album, “Black Magic”. Drummer Mike Orris had better things to do, so we got to hear Greg and Adam duel with guitars. These guys are always fun – if you can decipher what we’re saying when we’re all talking over each other.
I’m a little short on time myself, so I’m gonna give it to you down and dirty as well. The conversations get weird; Greg and Adam really blow it on the quiz; Nick steps up to the plate; Chewie’s still out; Rick and Rory are golden, as always. No-call, no-show on the part of both the Vampirates and The Shames. But at least the shames had a good excuse – they were somewhere near the border south of Phoenix and a lot of police/emergency band radio was making their cell phone reception spotty. We look forward to hearing from them next week? If nothing else, we’ll get a tour recap when they’re on the show in June (yes, really, this time).
Other than that – it’s the regular show. Hope you have a great week and patronize all your local venues and performers and artists! Stop by Reno Computer Fix for a great deal! (And Nick’s password is dubious at best – but I dare you to go in there and tell them)
Thanks for listening!
