Collective Desk #9: Rigorous Proof

June 6, 2012 | By | No Comments

I’ll know I’ve really made my way when there are lots of boys who want to see me naked.

What?

I’m just goofing on Rigorous Proof’s single, “Carolina,” but all silliness aside – the boys have some chops. Heavy on the reverb and peppered with distortion, it’ll be interesting to see the group’s acoustic adaptation for CDC9 this Friday at 5 p.m. at Reno Collective.

Come on down. We can have some Beer:30 action at 4:30 p.m. then listen and watch these Reno locals put on a groovtacular show for us.

Collective Desk #8: Memory Motel

May 23, 2012 | By | No Comments

I’m not sure exactly what Foltronica is, but I know it’ll be at The Reno Collective for CDC8.

If you’re as curious as I am to put a sound to the title, come on down to 522 Lander St. and check out Memory Motel. Beer:30 starts at 4:30 p.m. and the show’s at 5 p.m. so come have a visit, hang out with your bangs out, and stay for the folktronic wonderments.

Don elaborates on collaborating…

May 1, 2012 | By | No Comments

If I hear “community building” one more time…

Oh…

Well it sounds smooth and buttery when Don Morrison says it.

Don spoke as a featured guest for the the Reynolds School of Journalism’s #Jour4Jobs forum via Google Hangout.

One of the benefits he spoke about at the Collective?

“Confidence.”

With community and shared work comes confidence in an idea. Ideas can lead to great things, like Cloudsnap, or Don’s haircut, or even The Reno Collective.

Keep spawning ideas, and don’t be afraid to share those ideas with a friend. The process might take you somewhere.

Collective Desk #5: Spike McGuire

April 11, 2012 | By | No Comments

If the phrase “acoustic political post-folk punk” piques your interest then you should probably cancel your early Friday evening plans and come see Spike McGuire at Collective Desk #5. If political post-folk punk isn’t enough then maybe “raw vocal grit” or “impassioned lyrics” will draw you in. Maybe you’re excited to see a local boy perform for you. Tell you what, we’ll just see you here on on Friday, April 13th at 5 p.m., okay?

We haven’t quite figured out how a singer/songwriter that usually performs with the barebones accompaniment of an acoustic guitar will fulfill the Collective Desk mandate of a stripped-down set, but we’re excited to see the results. Someone that has shared the stage with tremendous musicians including: Chuck Ragan, Franz Nicolay, Kevin Seconds, Eddie Spaghetti, Kepi Gouhlie, and Roger Clyne and The Peacemakers is sure to please!

I have to admit, I’m still stuck on “post-folk punk”…
