The Red Dog Saloon, Silverland Inn & Suites and Piper’s Opera House presents Antsy Returns at Piper's this Thursday, October 20, 2016, at 7:00 pm

Singer, songwriter, humorist and small town philosopher Antsy McClain writes what he knows: The good life. He brings his unique blend of music and “humor with heart” to the stage, combining his original songs with a hilarious slide show, including Antsy’s own life observations, social commentary and imaginary sponsors from his home town trailer park of Pine View Heights. 

As a master storyteller with the likes of PBS, NPR and TEDTalks under his belt, Antsy includes humorous and serious songs in his shows. Songs such as “One Less Trailer Here in Pine View Heights,” My Baby Whistles When She Walks,” and “The Junk Drawer of Your Heart,” are keenly humorous observations about love and loss, while his more serious songs, like “Field Trip,” “I’m Everyone,” or “Falling in Love in America,” are more akin to personal journal entries written in the act of living. It’s this tightrope walk between humor and heart that makes Antsy McClain a true original.

Tickets for Antsy McClain are $30 and available at the Red Dog Saloon or call Piper's Opera House at 775-847-0433 or online at

Proceeds benefit the ongoing restoration of Piper’s Opera House.
