Sparks/Reno, Nev. – With a cadre of hits and activity spanning three decades, 10,000 Maniacs draws from a wealth of experience and talent. See them play the Celebrity Showroom, May 9, at John Ascuaga’s Nugget.
10,000 Maniacs originally drew its name in 1981 from the low-budget horror film, “Two Thousand Maniacs.” And while their history of revolving band members may play like a scary movie, their body of work is undeniably blissful. More than one dozen albums have delivered such songs as, “These are Days,” “What’s the Matter Here,” “Trouble Me,” “Eat for Two,” “Because the Night,” and “Candy Everybody Wants.” Even though original vocalist Natalie Merchant is more than a decade-and-a-half removed to a solo career, current members continue to persevere and deliver the stable of familiar tunes and new material to legions of loyal fans.
10,000 Maniacs plays one night, Saturday, May 9, in the Celebrity Showroom at 8 p.m. Tickets are just $32 and are available by calling (800) 648-1177 or (775) 356-3300 or click here. Dinner and show packages are available. “Do the Nugget Tonight!”
