Knocked Down!

Hello! Welcome to this week’s Worst Little Podcast! We’re stoked AF to welcome first timers to the show, skate punks Knocked Down! They brought some high energy tunes and some hilarious quiz answers. Kim was MIA due to a party injury, so Rick, Rory, and Nick had to pick up the slack. We learn a ton about the dudes in the band and hear some rad tunes, including some brand new songs from their upcoming full length album. This is punk rock, folks. Press play!

Spike McGuire and Fun Home – Graphic Drama

‘Sup, nerds.

It’s time for your weekly installment of the finest lowbrow art and culture that Reno can offer! This week’s antics are brought to you by FRIEND OF THE SHOW, Spike McGuire, and the cast of Fun Home, the Good Luck MacBeth summer musical! Director Jesse Briggs and actors Malary Engstrom and Imani Valle join us. Imani, a young version of the lead character, is one of the youngest guests we have had the pleasure of having on the show. SO, for the first half of the show is a riveting game of “Don’t Cross the Line!” Play along at home and guess who is the first to say something naughty!

Fun Home opens at GLM Friday, July 5 and runs through July 27, with 14 performances. The Artown opening weekend show is 90 minutes long and only one act, so be sure to get a drink at the bar… and then get a couple more drinks before you walk away. Livers gotta stay hydrated too!

As you may know, Marianarchy XV was a great success, as usual. The bands were cold and the beer was rocking! Nick and The Rev. are personally thankful of all the bands and donations and volunteering and good that went into the event to help out Shelby Paxton. We do good for ourselves, Reno, Thank You!
