This week’s podcast welcomes Reno singer-songwriter and ukulele superstar Britt Straw, and local comedian Steve Van Pelt. We’ll get to Steve in a minute but first, let’s introduce you to Worst Little Podcast veteran Britt Straw! Britt was recently on the podcast with her band Seedless 10DenC and she’s here today solo to play us some original music and to talk to us about her important work with the U.S. Wolf Refuge. Britt has been an advocate and activist for Wolves for many years. She talked to us Monday about her passion for helping these powerful creatures and shed light on the problem of irresponsible wolf breeding and domestication.

Also on the show, we have Steve Van Pelt who hosts comedy open mic at Jimmy B’s Bar and Grill every Monday night! He’s here to talk to us about the many stand-up open night mics in Reno. There’s one almost every day of the week!

The Wolf Refuge in Reno has more than 100 acres of space to house wolves that are too wild to live in a home yet too domestic to live in the wild. A fundraiser for the U. S. Wolf Refuge is being held at The Potentialist Workshop July 29th. Details can be found here. Fun for the whole family!

Steve Van Pelt Reno Nevada comedian and open mic comedy host.

Steve Van Pelt – local comedian. Steve is working hard to help our comedy scene thrive. Go say hi to him on Monday nights!

Steve began his comedy career in Good Luck Macbeth’s production, Clown Bar. He was bitten by the performance bug and has been doing standup ever since.  Your local comedy open mic nights are Sunday at Waterfall; Monday at Jimmy B’s; Tuesday at The Jungle (Shout out to Steve Elegant!); Wednesday at 3rd St Bar; Thursday at Beck’s Brewhouse.

 

In case you missed it this week our host Nick Ramirez opened for punk legend Zander Schloss of the Circle Jerks at Shea’s with podcast and Reno favorite Johnny Harpo. Nick did one hell of an entertaining cover of MIA’s Paper Planes (there’s video!) and Johnny played a little of this and a little of that from his band Rigorous Proof, as well as his solo stuff.

In other Reno scene news, Pinball is having a moment. There are tournaments a couple of times a month at Jub Jub’s and at the Hideout Lounge. Need a new hobby? Pinball.

For all of you sane people who aren’t going to the Black Rock for Juplaya, Reno has some cool stuff to occupy your 4th of July weekend. Your friend Kadillac Kim will be at Murder By Death with Tiger Army in Sacramento on Friday, but if I *were* in Reno Friday night one of my best bets would be artist Jounda Strong’s art exhibit Patterns of Love at The Generator, Inc. Also that night, Bohemian Burlesque has a very special showcase at 3rd St. Bar. See the gang give you a sneak peek at their unique performance style, gorgeous costumes, and comedic intrigue. Only $5 at the door. Details here! Saturday at 10 a.m. check out the Downtown Mural and Public Art Tour hosted by Art Spot Reno. While you’re downtown, go to the Biggest Little City Wingfest! Wings are my second favorite thing so I will see you there Saturday, Reno. Find me. Say Hi.

Worst Little Podcast PSA: it’s hot out. Stay hydrated. Piss clear. Beer only sort of counts as hydration and only if it’s like Coors or something. And for the love of God, please don’t drink Coors.

 

Thanks for listening. Stay safe this weekend.

 

 

Trevor “Trevair” Snowden – Stomie Hole

Hello and Welcome to the Worst little Podcast!

We have a full house of hosts tonight including a new face, Kadillac Kim (that’s me, hello). Our guest tonight is award winning disabled athlete, Trevor Snowden. Snowden’s larger than life, hope-filled presence is almost too big for the studio. In 1997, Trevor was preparing for a career in extreme snowboarding when he suffered a catastrophic spinal injury that left him paralyzed from the waist down. Trevor pulls no punches when talking about how his injury has affected his life. In addition to being an athlete, he is an inventor, video game designer, and rapper. Trevor’s full-length album, The Wheelchair Extraordinaire, is available on iTunes. Listen in for a yet to be released track and Worst Little Podcast exclusive from Trevor and learn about what he has in the works or just where to find him singing karaoke.

Over the years Snowden became increasingly unhappy with the standard wheelchairs insurance provided so he invented his own custom wheelchair specifically designed to provide athletes to stay active. This wheelchair is now known as the Trevair. Trevor’s invention has helped him launch a new off- roading sport, wheelchair supercross. Snowden holds the world record for jumping 55ft over cars in a wheelchair and his stunts have been featured in Ripley’s Believe It or Not.

Down and Out in Reno Nevada

Hey, Reno!

Welcome to this weeks VERY not safe for work (or anywhere, really) episode of The Worst Little Podcast! This week we’re reflecting on awkward first porn experiences with Reno hardcore band Down and Out. Come for the gay jokes and tentacle porn and stay for the music and Nathan’s phone number. Down and Out is made up of  Ian Ferriot- Vocals, Nathan Koop- Guitar\Vocals, Daryl Smith- Guitar, Colin Ferriot- Bass\Vocals, and Kyle Smith- Drums.

Down and Out just wrapped up recording their first EP and have recently played with Reno punk rock staples Reno, We Have a Problem and Jukebox Rebels in Fallon, as well as opening for Booze and Glory at Shea’s. Keep an eye on their Facebook and Instagram for upcoming show dates and listen in to hear a handful of the hard rocking, anger channeling tracks that were recorded live from the recent past, just for you, loyal listeners. Thanks again to Down and Out for joining us this week. Y’all are the tits. Join us next week when we welcome Trevor Snowden to the studio for more of the weekly shenanigans you have come to expect from the dedicated professionals (lol) at Worst Little Podcast.

While you’re waiting for Down and Out to play another Reno show you should support your local music scene. As always there’s no shortage of live shows in Reno this weekend and lucky for you I’ve picked your best bets already so you don’t have to! Friday, June 16th see Viva Revenge. Prince Robot, and Slutsville share a stage at Jub Jub’s. Saturday is Reno’s biggest and best folk showcase, Loud As Folk (event link), with Six Mile Station and Cowboy Indian opening for Hellbound Glory (!!!). It’s at new bat time and a new bat venue (RIP Adam West), 2 p.m., June 17th at The Eddy. After Loud As Folk, take a short walk to The Basement for some indie jazz/rock with Raksha Paksha and Reno anthem singer Grace Hayes at 8 p.m. If you haven’t been to the Basement (in the old Post Office) this is the perfect chance to fix that!

Anything more than a handful is a waste, right?

Go do things and don’t forget to stay classy, Reno. Or stay Reno classy. You do you.

 

Thanks for listening!

PhÆDRx – Solo Machinations

Greetings, weary travellers!

The Worst Little Podcast in the World – S7 E16 – Download Link

This week we’re introducing you to a Reno musician who is off the beaten path. PhÆDRx is the project, Dennis is his name. Combining strong songwriting skills and musical styles from many eras and influences, PhÆDRx is a musical exploration of metaphysical themes. Dennis composes and writes all of these original works; what’s even more impressive is that he also plays all the parts himself, from strings to drums to synth and the ol’ mouth harp. Many of the songs you will hear on the show are acoustic versions of fully produced songs that are available on the website.

Though soft-spoken, Dennis has an alluring voice and strong storytelling skills. Classic bait-and-switch. Enjoy the tunes and check out the sites. We hope to see PhÆDRx playing out at Reno venues soon this summer. Keep an eye out for his album “Always Look Up”, releasing later this summer.

Hope to see you all out at the shows this weekend! On the Theater Front, we have STUPID FUCKING BIRD closing it’s run at Bruka, Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind at RLT and The Comedy of Errors at the Lear. On the music side, Sonic Mass at 40 Mile on Friday and the boys in One Ton Dually will be opening up for Three Rounds on Saturday.

Thanks for Listening!
