Episode 34: The Brankas


Here’s episode 34 with The Brankas!

The Brankas are a duo from San Francisco, originally formed in Oakland in 2011, they consist of members Taylor McElroy and Theo Slavin. I first met Theo and Taylor selling their merch after I saw them play a kick ass live set at Gremfest ’17, an awesome local Reno festival that hosts a line-up of rad rock ‘n’ roll bands from Reno and the Bay area.

The Brankas stopped by the All Independent Reno “back-shack” earlier this year before they performed at The Holland Project in Reno on May 28th with Get Well Soon Band and Family Sedan. We had a few beers, talked about their latest record,  how they got into playing music and which band mate spends the most time playing video games. These guys were really fun to hang out with so I hope you enjoy listening to this episode as much as we had fun making it!

Here’s a music video for the song “Camera” from their latest record.

The Brankas will be performing in Reno NV at Pignic Pub and Patio for the 3rd annual Off Beat Music Festival Nov. 2nd-4th as part of the SNAFU Family Showcase Nov. 4th. Get your wristbands for Off Beat Music Festival on their website or purchase tickets at the door.

The following songs from The Brankas lastest record My Parkour Body Is The Paint And The World Is My Canvas. I Don’t See Obstacles, I See Opportunities are featured on this episode:




You can purchase their records on their Bandcamp page or at one of their shows.

Thanks for listening!
