News: New Bands, New Books

Posted in Biggest Little City Club, Extradition 2010 show, Virginia Avenue Press by Extradition Music on February 16, 2010

As I wrote in an earlier post, we are really excited for the upcoming Nevada Backwards/BLVD Park show at the Biggest Little City Club.  As noted in our “about page” Gallatin Road Productions is about the interpretation of our city and our state in music, while Virginia Avenue Press is about the same in literature.  The interpretation or reinterpretation of our city through song is great when great local bands dig into the subject.  But there is an extra level of intrigue there when folks from outside of the state do.  Nevada Backwards is one of those bands that does it and does it well.

Just look at their name.  Their myspace page describes the origin of “Nevada Backwards” this way:

Adaven: A Nevada ghostown, a backwards state, Brian’s first dog.

That fascination with our state alone should be just about enough to inspire most of us to get there and see what this band is all about, but there’s more, too.  You have their sizable Burning Man following.  You have their genuine interest in roots rock music.  And you have their great sound too.  Oh, and BLVD Park is bringing all of that with them too. 

This is going to be a great show.  See you all there.

In other news, Virginia Avenue Press is very close to signing three new authors on top of the two that are already on board.  This is going to be a great year for the literature of Reno to grow.  The two Johnny Cash books will be out by August at the latest.
