Richmond Fontaine Show Update

Posted in Extradition 2010 show, Richmond Fontaine, Uncategorized by Extradition Music on April 28, 2010

I linked to James Haddock Jr’s myspace page yesterday so you could all enjoy his sound as much as I did.  Willy Vlautin, the lead singer from Richmond Fontaine, personally requested that Haddock open up for his Richmond Fontaine Acoustic set on Tuesday, May 4 at the Ole Bridge Pub.  (I’ve been calling it the Old Bridge Pub, which I hear used to exist just east of Reno.)  The show will follow Willy’s reading of Lean on Pete at Sundance Books that same night, and it will be a free show.  By the way, Lean on Pete is excerpted in the next issue of the Nevada Review, where I also review it.  May 4th at the OBP is going to be a great show.

Willy Vlautin and Johnny Cash

I just finished what I hope is the final draft of a chapter I am writing for my non-fiction book on Johnny Cash’s famous Reno line called I Shot a Man in Reno.  The chapter compares/contrasts “Folsom Prison Blues” with Vlautin’s songs and novels.  I seriously can’t think of a band out there that consistently blows my mind.  You should go buy Vlautin’s newest book, Lean on Pete, at Sundance Books in Reno.  You’ll enjoy it.  You should also plan to go to the Ole Bridge Pub on May 4 at 9:00 for a free show.  You can see more about his show here.  Other posts on Richmond Fontaine are here.

Nevada Review, Issue 2 contents

Posted in Extradition 2010 show, Richmond Fontaine, Virginia Avenue Press by Extradition Music on April 14, 2010

I’m listing this here for two reasons.  First, because everything that we do here at Extradition Music (and Virginia Avenue Press) is about bringing art and culture about Reno and Nevada back home to its people.  Second, because we have an Extradition Music show coming up next month with Willy Vlautin (Richmond Fontaine), whose book is excerpted and reviewed in the next issue of The Nevada Review.  More about his show here.

Here is the final contents for the forthcoming issue:
