"If Buster Blue were an act (a sporadic one) they would be a beer bottle being smashed on someone’s head. But not in a drunken Offspring concert way. More in the way of being so convinced by good powerful folk-rock that you had to express to your neighbor how good you felt. I’m sure they would understand. There are a couple things about Buster Blue: One, they’re damn amazing. They combine everything from chains to accordions to create a folksy-rock-thrash sound that Reno has never heard before. Two, they are an experience to see live. Whether it’s lead singer Bryan Jones leaping off the stage and shouting into the megaphone during “Ain’t No Heaven on the County Road” or the entire band belting out teeth-clenching screams in “Damascus”—this band is a toe-tapping, hip-movin’ good time." -RENO NOISE article by Jessica Pacheco

In the summer of 2004 a group of metal heads came together to make some serious noise. The sound they created could’ve been defined as ‘modern hard rock’ built on a solid foundation of ‘classic heavy metal’. Over time their sound evolved. It became something that wasn’t expected. Something fresh.
David Ford, a rebel of the classic teachings of Metallica, Slayer and Black Sabbath provides lead vocals and rhythm guitar. Without disregarding his unique vocal tone, he boldly takes inspiration from ‘modern’ vocalists such as Randall Blythe (Lamb of God) and David Draiman (Disturbed). His lyrics effectively cut through the mix with clarity and attitude providing a hook that much of today’s metal lacks.

Joff Stone, a student of Godsmack, Black Label Society and Stuck Mojo, handles lead guitar duties and backing vocals. On stage Stone performs a rehearsed ballet as he skillfully operates footswitches, plays guitar and sings. His brutal attack on stage has garnered him the nickname: Juggernaut.

Dan Garrett, inspired by great bass players such as Geezer Butler and Geddy Lee was perfect for the role. His tall, dark stature adds an intimidating vibe to left stage as he hurls deadly bottom end at the eager crowd. He has become known by his menacing stage name: Saskwatch.

Tony Cornia rounds out the quartet of mayhem with boundless ferocity and un-moving, metal attitude. His aggressive, hard-hitting style has earned him the name “The Animal”. His tremendous rhythms and thunderous kicks are like a punch to the throat. They effectively provide sinister dynamics to every song.

RIPCHAIN’s dedication and persistence has brought them a very respectable draw in their hometown. They are striving to broaden their audience to a worldwide level. Ripchain has played well over a hundred shows. They’ve traveled regionally from Washington to Utah to the Sunset strip. They’ve played with many great bands such as Static-X, Prong, Otep, 3 Inches Of Blood and many more.

RIPCHAIN is poised to strike at the hearts of metal fans everywhere.

Bill Cosby performs two shows, one at 7 pm and one at 9:30 pm.

Over the past century, few entertainers have achieved the legendary status of William H. Cosby Jr. His successes span five decades and virtually all media, remarkable accomplishments for a kid who emerged from humble beginnings in a Philly project.

In the 1960s, his stand-up act was a coast-to-coast sensation, spawning a string of hilarious, best-selling comedy albums, which went on to win eight Gold Records, five Platinum records and five Grammy Awards. His role on TV’s I Spy made him the first African-American to co-star in a dramatic series, breaking television’s racial barrier and winning three Emmy Awards. In the 1980s, he again rocked the television world with the The Cosby Show, a gentle, whimsical and hugely successful series that single-handedly revived the family sitcom (and rescued NBC).

With hit movies like Uptown Saturday Night and best-selling books like Fatherhood, Bill Cosby is quite simply a national treasure with the unique ability to touch people’s hearts.

Band performs with opener from Seattle. Pussygutt consists of Brittany McConnell on bass and Blake Green on drums. The couple, both multi-instrumentalists, reside in the rural landscape outside of Boise, Idaho, where they create their dark, foreboding sounds away from the chaos of America’s large cities. Pussygutt takes many forms. Often in the live environment they add a guitarist and pummel through a set of blistering, Melvins-style low-end heaviness at impossibly high volumes.
