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.

Franc Friday – Lyrically Loquacious Life Lessons

Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back!

It’s been a loooooong break, almost as long as Ricks….. sobriety, (sure, we’ll go with that). We hope all your Christmas wishes have come true and all your New Year’s Resolutions are already broken are coming to fruition!

We are pleased to welcome to the show a true Reno bon vivant, the singular MC, Franc Friday. Two-time “Best Rapper in Northern Nevada” winner, Franc has worked the crowds in Reno for half a decade and shows no sign of holding back. His is a new kind of hip hop – lyrically aggressive, sharp electronica blended with beats.

Franc Friday

Despite having digs all the way over on the East Coast, in NYC, he still regularly visits the RNO, recording and releasing music. His EP, “Frequent Flyer” dropped at the end of 2017 and he is already at work on his next. We have exclusive Franc Friday tracks, including something still in the mix, up early in the show. It’s hard to get to the songs though, because godDAM that boy can talk. You all think Reverend Rory is this self-absorbed force of nature that talks over everything? He was naught but a flea in the path of the Franc Train.

Be with Franc after the holidaze

Also, there’s a little something Rick gets into early in the show: we now have a Patreon page! https://www.patreon.com/worstlittlepodcast That’s right – you too can be a part of the podcast without doing anything but throw a little money in our humble hat! After seven fun seasons, we are turning to you, the listening audience, for a little love. It’s not that we are likely to stop promoting Reno artists, musicians, events and venue, or refrain from archiving live tracks of as many Reno, Sparks, Carson and Northern Nevada bands as we possibly can. No! We’re suckers and love doing this for our own amusement and benefit. But, if you appreciate what we do and how we do it – you can be a part of the team! Buy the bands a beer! Get us to say your name on an episode! Name your terms – we have few boundaries and interns for when we do!

Check it out: https://www.patreon.com/worstlittlepodcast

As always, it’s good to have you hear. We have a fantastic year lined up for you so far, including a kick-ass “Women’s March” with the Month of Three being dominated with great Reno ladies; some old friends and some surprises; and of course, all the newest Reno music and events.

UPCOMING EVENTS:

Thursday, 1/11 – Reno Compliment Slam at the Potentialist Workshop
Saturday, 1/13 – Basement Tapes, Vague Choir and Grimtones at The Saint
Feb – PUNK ROCK FLEA MARKET – just follow the link. It’s gonna be rad, thanks to Kadillac Kim.

Thanks for Listening!

Season 7 Christmas Special

Merry Krimble and a ho ho ho!

S7 E40

Worst Little Listeners, thanks for tuning in again and bearing with us for another year. This year we have something truly special to share with you – no, not that we put a down payment on a short-bus (details soon for the crowdfunder). It just so happens that Reverend Rory’s parents were in town for a little early Christmas! And he was able to fast-talk invite them onto the show! Team Wifey – Diana Dowd and Mikie Ramirez – are also in the room; and let us not forget little Rikku, in for her yearly recording session. Listen in the new year for more outrageous and questionable samples!

Its not the longest show, but we have a lot of fun. There are gifts, embarrassing stories about The Rev, an intern gets a name, all the Christmas wishes and – most importantly – a classic retelling of “The Legend Of Hamburger James And The True Meaning Of Christmas”, as disastrously read by Reverend Rory.

Thanks for Listening.
