Reno bands Silver and Failure Machine ventured into neighboring Sparks to perform at Revision Brewing last Saturday.

Reno and Sparks showed up early for the Pinata Bash. Throughout the band’s load-in, hours before the show, drinkers and loungers were getting their night started in the brewery warehouse turned bar/venue.

Fans showed up for the free show and jumped through the large metal shipping doors.

The stage and lighting was a great showcase for some of Reno’s best music. Like our own little Super Bowl, with no sport except drinking.

Both Failure Machine and Silver incorporated engaging covers throughout their meaty two-hour sets. The crowd was dancing and engaged as the bands played their favorites. They are both seasoned groups familiar with playing for hours and keeping audiences enthralled.
