33 Black – Craigslist Hookup

S8 E15

Oh hi, I didn’t see you there! Welcome to the Worst Little Podcast. Your hosts Nick, Kadillac Kim, and Dogwater Dick are here with some fresh faces to the Reno music scene, 33 Black. This week’s podcast has gone country! Yeehaw! Listen up for some new music from these up-and-comers, along with a heavy dose of inappropriate banter. Like we do.

33 Black is a very serious band and is made up of Travis and Jeb on vocals and guitar, and Spencer on drums

33 Black was formed back in the day (they never got around to telling us which day exactly) when Jeb and Travis, who were high school sweethearts friends, met Spencer on the internet. But unlike most Craigslist hookups, this one lasted.

Thank’s to 33 Black for being Kim’s reason to get drunk this week! Their next show is in Chico on June 14th but look for local shows soon. As always, stay tuned to the Worst Little Podcast for news about the band, and check them out on iTunes to listen to their two EPs that are out now. We will be following 33 Black with interest and we can’t wait to see where these guys go!

BLUNDERBUSST – Not About That Bass

S8 E14

Podcasting live from the recent, sweaty past, we’re bringing you the power trio from Carson, our friends Blunderbusst! It has been six whole years since they have graced our humble studio and they’re bringing a heavy dose of nostalgia and kick ass tunes. This week we’re talking clown Elvis’s, hamburger hands, and sweet, sweet practice holes! Press play for this podcast EXCLUSIVE from Blunderbusst!

There were no interns this week so Kim had to do all the heavy lifting. And by heavy lifting I mean beers and conversation! Kim’s adventures this week consisted of clowning around with a clown Elvis impersonator and turning 35! Here’s proof that Clownvis exists! Come back, Clownvis!

Hedwig and the Angry Inch – the Reno Cut

S8 E13: Ep 295

We are so lucky this week to have one of the BIGGEST little guests we’ve ever had the pleasure of coming through Dogwater Studios. Ladies and gentlefolk, all the way from the former East Germany and… other(?) parts East… World-wide sensation and controversial media darlings, Hedwig and The Angry Inch! – Do you have what it takes to be a superstar? Do you have the balls? Would you sacrifice your balls for fame? Your pain is nothing.

We are joined in studio by the cast of “Hedwig and the Angry Inch“, as presented by Brüka Theater and Good Luck Macbeth Theater. We do NOT have, Joe Atack, Amy Ginder, Eric Foreman, Rhiannon Box, Daisy Foreman and Nick Ramirez in studio. No! We have the very actual, for really really reals band, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, “escorted” by director Bill Ware. What follows is a very off the cuff and revealing interview with this controversial international figure, Hedwig, and the band that supports her. There are some very shocking things that happen behind the scenes with these Eastern European rockers.

If you don’t already know what “Hedwig” is, I’m not going to tell you: you’ll just have to go see the show.

“Hedwig and the Angry Inch” will open at Good Luck Macbeth’s new space at 124 W Taylor St, this Friday, April 20, and will run through Saturday, May 12. Complete show dates can be found on the theaters’ websites, or the Facebook event page, as linked above. Tickets are available at Brown Paper Tickets. Sources suggest that there will be many audiences at capacity and you may want to get tickets in advance to save yourself some money and make sure you can get your seats. As a joint production by two of the most edgy theaters in Reno, “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” is a first in Reno independent performing arts – and hopefully not the last. (EVERYBODY WILL BE THERE – GET YOUR TICKETS SO YOU’RE NOT LEFT OUT).
