Felipendejo – Stranger Things

S8 E26

O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!

In an episode that can arguably be called our most interesting episode yet, we welcome Felipendejo to the Worst Little Podcast this week. brainchild of Kevin Montoya (Ostracized), this is a singular musical experience – the fabled one-man band. Kevin brings the rock, and the funk, and the minimalism, and the art rock, and the noise in a cacophony of mental stimulation and limbering.

Kevin Montoya

Kevin is a lot of fun to talk to – insightful, educated and definitely marching to the beat of his own drummer, which is, ostensibly, himself. Having only really been around for the better part of this year, the age of Felipendejo is just beginning!

Felipendejo!

Sorry for the delay in podcast again this week, folks. I’m just not as good at this as Kim is.

We are booking any and all acts, so hit up Rory Dowd at booking@headquartersreno.com if you want to get in on our fancy fancy (and really awesome sounding) stage.

Infecto Skeletons – Back for More

S8 E25

Hey gang! Long time no hear! It’s been a crazy month with cancellations and surgeries and travelling and a whole bunch of other unexpected things, but we are finally back! Most of us anyway.

Nick, Rick and Kim welcome the Infecto Skeletons back to the studio. Mike and Andrew stop in to talk about stuff. Now, this is Rory doing the post and guess what – I haven’t listened to the episode yet (shocker, I know), but I do know one thing that they are talking about on the show: the new album. That’s right! The long awaited second release from Reno’s favorite scuzz-punks will hit the internet this weekend, and for a limited time, you’ll be able to download “Get Your Shit Together”, absolutely free!

After this though, it might be a while before you can catch them: in September, they are headed out for the Lost Skeletons Tour – a wild West Coast tour with Lost Idea, so grab the album while you can, learn all the words and wait patiently to forget them all while you puke on Justin’s feet in front of the stage at their next show in Reno.
