Erin Drive – Young Shredders

Greetings and welcome to the Worst Little Podcast! We’ve got newcomers Erin Drive in the studio this week. They’re here talking about their new EP recorded by our own former intern Ian Laughlin (contact him here if you’re interested in recording with him!). Listen up as Nick tries to keep us all under control and for some grungy, good old-fashioned rock and roll.

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. As your Reverend, I am a slacker. iBut, it’s been for a good cause – I’ve recently started a new job as the booking agent for Headquarters Bar in downtown Reno. 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.

Grimedog – It’s A Family Affair

S8 E24

Welcome to the Sausage Party!!! We’re happy to have Wolfman, Lucas and Hurricane from Grimedog in the studio today. These three Reno punks croon their way into your ears with a blend of 50’s rock, modern punk and effed up stories. And then, there’s the music. All kidding aside, we never stop kidding on this show. We should have been recording 20 min before the start of the episode because of all the funny shit we were saying. Unfortunately, you just got what was leftover.

Wolfman Grimedog

Wolfman, Lucas and Hurricane are Grimedog and a family – Father, Son and Brother/Uncle…. in the normal way, like respectively, not anything weird…(god, you guys are gross). Their familiality and familiarity has not bred contempt, (at least not currently), but a tight trio of Reno garage punk. Musically and conversationally, they work together as a cohesive unit, covering and picking up for one another as needed. For all the bands who played on this show, they seemed least perturbed by not being able to see the drummer. Anyway… they are a lot of fun to riff with and have some great songs. They’re working on a full length at Dogwater, so look for it later this year. You can catch them next at Boshee Bash out at Pyramid next weekend.

This weekend, the big deal is Northern Nevada Pride 2018! Break out your rainbow formal clothes and glitter cause it’s time to be fabulous! Or not! #dependingonhoweveryouselfidentifyandexpressyourself !!!!! Reno Pride is something that has become very important to our communities; it wasn’t always here and this town has not always been as tolerant and accepting as it is… ironic as that might seem to some of us. It is awesome that it has survived and grown and become a linchpin of the local civic calendar and highlight of many people’s year. Please go out and support the festival on Saturday as well as the associated events all weekend long at all of your favorite LGBTQ venues and establishments, new and old.
