Playing Around: Reno Divorce

From Denver, by way of Orlando, Fla., comes Reno Divorce, a rock 'n' roll band -- minus the "white boy jock rock, whiney ballads or prepackaged, homogenized 'punk rock.'" Reno's music relies on Bad Religion rumination and Social Distortion sentiment to hammer home songs about regret and pain, etched out for all to hear in their full-length debut album, Naysayers and Yesmen. And though their influences are apparent, at least their influences are good. (After all, they could've been into P. Diddy.) See the guys play an anything but acoustic set at the Acoustic Coffee Lounge this Saturday with The Mansfields before they head out on a brief European tour.
