We tried to drive up to Reno a few months ago only to be thwarted by snow as the elevation increased on our way to the gig. We were a bit unaware as to the condition of the roads up there, but when we stopped for some snacks we were informed that we would have to purchase at least one set of tire chains to even be allowed to attempt to continue through to Reno. We had 2 vehicles to outfit with chains and actually contemplated for a second, going for it. Chains for 2 vehicles would set us back even more in cost and we already had to cover gas and potential lodging for the evening with no guarantee from the gig. Then our sense kicked in as we aren’t wreckless 20 somethings anymore and we made the obvious correct decision to cancel right there on the spot. Sometimes it’s hard to do that, this time not so much. Apparently as we were making this decision the weather was getting increasingly worse and we heard shortly after that they closed the road entirely and we would not have been allowed through, chains or no chains!
So Friday is a Reno redo! We will be playing with The Flesh Hammers who were so kind as to set up the previous gig and understanding enough to set up this one for us. Hopefully mother nature will also align herself to allow us to get in and get out safely. The location was recently changed to The Morris Burner Hotel/Hostel
