Recorded in Joshua Tree, CA, Command Your Weather sees Big Business return to its original two-man lineup of Jared Warren and Coady Willis.

But you’ve never had so much fun being crushed in the cogs of the universe’s great machine, that much is for sure! I mean, there’s no law against having a couple cold beers while we all burn in the fire of time, am I right?! Recorded by Dave Curran of UNSANE/PIGS/BIG BUSINESS’ LAST RECORD fame. Founded in 2003 in Seattle, WA., Big Business has spent the last 13 years touring the world and making records. In 2006 Jared and Coady joined forces with the Melvins and moved to Los Angeles. Performing as members of the Melvins and staying autonomous as their own band, they have been there ever since. Kanawha - Loud desert songs from a four-piece band from Reno, Nevada.

Lich King / Condemned Existence/The User lives
SheasTavern Reno – About Tour dates: tour.lichkingmetal.com Buy physical: merch.lichkingmetal.com Buy digital: music.lichkingmetal.com Podcast: podcast.lichkingmetal.com Street Team: streetteam.lichkingmetal.com Biography We're not named after a World of Warcraft character and our 4th album cover has nothing to do with Adventure Time. Thanks so much for asking though. The point was to create new old-school thrash metal in the vein of EXODUS, VIO-LENCE, S.O.D., SLAYER and others. Lots of bands in the new wave of thrash these days are doing just that, but where we stand out is that we admit it. Tom Martin started Lich King as a one-man project around 2004, as a goof. People seemed to like the music. Our first two albums were released as a solo project posing as an actual band. In 2009 Tom cannibalized a local thrash act called AGES AGO and formed Lich King as a true band for the first time. We think the sound of thrash was perfected in the 80’s and we’re not trying to add anything to the mix. We’re just coming up with riffs and songs that the old masters didn’t. Despite that fact and our best efforts, we seem to be developing a signature sound. Dammit. We’ve had four full-length albums since 2007. Each features fast, headbangable riffs in modern stomp anthems, a sometimes comedic yet always violent songwriting sensibility, art and design from the guy that writes the songs and does vocals, a marked step up in quality from the previous release, an awesome logo and a mascot. ...A mascot that is not affiliated with a video game.

WOW Wednesday: Practicing Right Relationship a 5 week course
Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Northern Nevada – Practicing Right Relationship – being present in the moment and having supportive, authentic relationships with others. Some believe right relationships are at the very core of most things we do. Even if it isn’t at the core, it is certainly something that can bring us more faith, hope, justice and joy. Right Relationships seem to be more and more necessary in our current world. Our congregation is in a transitional place as we conduct our ministerial search. Our communities are transitioning with political changes, upheavals and even environmental and climate changes. How are you coping? How do you feel? How are your relationships with friends, family, strangers, neighbors, members of various political groups, religions and ideologies? How do you handle opinions, ideas and beliefs that are different than yours? Do you need to hone and strengthen your skills of deep listening and understanding? Are you feeling a bit rusty or is the seemingly constant barrage of hate we’re hearing wearing you down? Join us for reflection, discussion and learning to build your skills and build community. Join us at WOW Wednesdays beginning September 27th and ending October 25th, 6pm-8pm. Dinner will be available. Child care and youth activities will be available. Contact Rev. Karen Foster firstname.lastname@example.org for details.

This is geared to help the model acquire skills to be professional, mindful, and experience body awareness in a new way. We will discuss props to bring when you are modeling for artists, any needs you have, and how to take direction while also communicating feedback respectfully. This workshop is geared towards helping anyone who wants to learn more about nude modeling. All experience levels are welcome. If you are interested in being a nude model for a Body Brunch, let us know when you come to this workshop. See you there! Open to men and women. Must be 18 or over. Suggested donation of $10. Body Brunch is the monthly Potentialist Life-Drawing session, held last Saturdays of the month. Contact us for more information. This workshop is facilitated by Kelsey Sweet, MA, Artist and Director of Marketing for the Potentialist Workshop. Kelsey has been a professional nude model for 11 years and has posed for print, photo, life drawing, professional artists, performance art, and body paint exhibitions. Kelsey's background is diverse and includes degrees in Psychology and Transofrmative Leadership.
