The Off Beat Music Festival concludes tonight. Here’s what happened last night. SCHEDULE
Reno’s Off Beat Music Festival is a dream come true for lovers of live music. On Friday, 18 venues presented a full-lineup of bands, including several with charismatic and dynamic frontwomen — Youngblood’s Alexis Young, San Francisco’s Rossana Schneider, and hometown singers Margy Ford of Roxxie Collie and Ashley Costelloe of Pink Awful. Off Beat continues tonight. Overnight, stay up late to catch Youngblood for a 2 a.m. performance at Alturus On The Downlow.
ABOUT Shaun Astor
Shaun Astor cites pop music singers and social deviants as being among his strongest influences. His vices include vegan baking, riding a bicycle unreasonable distances and fixating on places and ideas that make up the subject of the sentence, "But that’s impossible…" He splits his time between Reno and a hammock perched from ghost town building foundations.

George Harrison and Paul Simon, “Here Comes The Sun”, live on SNL in ‘76. I still clearly remember seeing this live as a kid and it’s still just the best obviously. #GeorgeHarrison https://youtu.be/KEgBMTMUanU via @YouTube
