Late For Rent – The Kids Are Alright

S8 E5

Hello and welcome to another episode of your least favorite podcast! This week we have newcomers Late For Rent in the studio. We had the best time hanging out with Elleanor, Travis, and Michael this week. DAMN were they good.  Listen up to hear some minds actually being blown, some faces being melted, and to hear what’s coming up for the excellent folks who are Late For Rent. We’ve got deep, nerdy secrets, a cameo from a certain special former intern, and some kick ass storage unit metal.

Late For Rent knows their rock & roll, channeling bands like Cracker, Pavement, Fugazi, and Rush. I highly recommend seeing them live ASAP. Late For Rent is Elleanor Burke – Guitar, Vocals, Production/Engineering, Travis Rubio – Bass, Michael Maxwell – Drums.

Thanks so much to Late For Rent for spending their Monday night with us. We can’t wait to see where they go from here!

Josiah Knight – Finger Picking Good

S8 E4

Heyo, podcast land. Rory, Nick, Chewy, Rick, and Kadillac Kim are here this week in a packed studio to interview Reno folk darling, Josiah Knight. Tune in for tapeworm talks, the 12 murder ballads of Christmas, and a little cross podcast lovin’. This episode you’ll also get a Reno history lesson, and learn your word of the week, pugilism, when we talk about historic fights near swingers bars! Because Nevada! But first, some music!

Josiah is a Reno live music staple and we’re stoked to have him on the show again. Go see him live at Jub Jub’s February 26th and at Shea’s in March. We’ll keep you updated with links to the shows. Thanks for sharing some great music with us, Josiah!

The Royale – Jay The Sport Jackson dreams of being the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. But its 1905, and in the racially segregated world of boxing, his chances are as good as knocked out. When a crooked boxing promoter hatches a plan for the fight of the century, The Sport just might land a place in the ring with the reigning white heavyweight champion.

Also on this weeks show was an update about a new show coming to Good Luck Macbeth, The Royale. Click the link for more info and for tickets.

Saturday morning all the podcast hosts participated in some cross podcast lovin’ with Ben Alfree, creator of the Unsynd podcast. We’ll be sure to let everyone know when that episode is out. Thanks to Ben and Joshua Ortiz for having us!

Before we sign out, Rick has some news! So much news! Rick was able to fix Rory’s pot table with the brand new Skill Saw that was left on his doorstep by none other than Hamburger James, much like a baby in a basket. But like, one that’s useful. This is proof that someone listened to our Christmas Special! Thanks for listening and extra thanks to our Patreon supporters.

Blacklisted – Still Pissing Off the Neighbors

S8 E2

Welcome! Kim and Rory played hooky this week, but fortunately our other hosts Nick, Chewy, and Dogwater Dick were present to pick up the slack. Press play right now to hear some SUPER SECRET (okay, it’s not secret, but it is SUPER) Grimtones news that you’ll only hear on the Worst Little Podcast! This weeks show has everything – astrology, tales of auto-erotic asphyxiation, and uncomfortable silences. Pretty much in that order!

Our guest this week is Reno Jackson 5 cover band experimental, psychedelic alt-rock band, Blacklisted. Established in 2015, Blacklisted is what happens when you form a band while on drugs (calm down, it’s legal now!). The band is busy writing new music and is planning on a spate of February and March shows.
