Bluff Caller, a homegrown alt-rock band, is hosting a Desert Party on Saturday, and you’re invited.
The Reno group will be joined by other hometown musicians, Davey Alastair of Dankjewel, La Safari, and Britt Straw & Glynn Osburn for an 8 p.m. show at the Cargo Concert Hall. Tickets for the all-ages show are $10, or $12 on day of show, plus fees.
All proceeds for the concert will benefit Planned Parenthood, which is in danger of being defunded by Congress. Planned Parenthood is one the nation’s leading providers of high-quality healthcare for women, men and young people, and the nation’s largest provider of sex education.
Bluff Caller delivers R&B drenched rock and recently released the album “The Desert Party.” Band members are Cody Rea (vocals, guitar and keyboards), Spencer Mead (guitar, keyboards and vocals), Dominic Kelly (drums and samples), and Greg Rea (bass and vocals.)
Davey Alastair is a singer for Dankjewel and also plays guitar and synthesizer for the 5-piece psych rock band from Reno.
Formed in 2016 as the brain-child of folk/soul veteran Casey Frasca, La Safari “aims to bring some semblance of sophistication back to the rock genre. Proclaimed as blues rock with jazz pop sensibilities, La Safari flirts with the perfect amount of dissonance while making its sound accessible to any casual rock/pop fan.” The Reno band will perform new material and also some covers.
Britt Straw is a Reno native who sings and jams on the ukulele, and she’ll be accompanied by Glynn Osburn.
“I love to sing in the clouds! I believe music has the potential to satisfy every soul. Music is what keeps me sane, music is what keeps me whole,” she said.
