Reno's secret punk rock past
by Andrew Kiraly | posted May 5, 2011
As a graduate of old-school Vegas desert shows waybackintheday and all that, I always marveled at how Reno's seminal hardcore band 7 Seconds got so huuuuuge with its strangely innocent, upbeat message of positivity and all that. An exhibit in the Biggest Little City explores that and more. From the Reno Gazette Journal:
“The Wrong Side of Reno: Three Decades of Punk and Hardcore Music in the Biggest Little City” collects album covers and memorabilia — at least 150 pieces — chronicling the life and times of Reno punk bands from 1982-2010, from the internationally successful 7 Seconds to local favorites including Gob, Fall Silent and This Computer Kills.
Pick up your Desert Companion today at one of these Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf or Jamba Juice locations.
Also available at Clark County and Henderson libraries.
