Jub Jub and The Riptide Bandits - Bittersweet
/

What a fucking week. I’m personally still processing a lot of things that have happened, personally and publicly, as I’m sure many of you are too.

For this week’s episode, we are joined by some of the creators and founders and owners of Jub Jub’s Thirst Parlor, Brian Smith, Faith Zayumeyer, Josh Smith and Lew Zaumeyer. From the playa to Wells Avenue, it’s a wild, passionate telling of a story and borderline meltdown that Jess Blaze would be proud of.

Emergency Marianarchy: #keepjubsalive

In an unprecedented decision, Marianarchy is going to put on an Emergency Marianarchy to help Jub’s out, in light of the difficulties in owning a venue in 2020. Furthermore, this October surprise will replace the traditional Winterball. Because we need to make it happen for our family, our home. If you are interest in helping, please check out the event page, donate on the GoFundMe page, or to donate art, merch or DIY goods, email keepjubsartailve@gmail.com.

Grouch

Sadly, it was not all fun and drinking games this week. Reno lost a good friend and talented musician this weekend. Grouch. A guitarist for many Reno bands including The Riptide Bandits and Voted Best Band, Grouch was a beloved member of the Reno music and art community. His sudden passing is an incredible shock. All the music this week is from The Riptide Bandits, much of it from their unreleased second album, recorded here at Dogwater Studios. We hope you enjoy it.

Life is short; we love you. Tell your friends and family you love them.

Thanks for listening.

Matt Bushman - Flashbacks

It was the penultimate day of summer, the sky was clear of smoke and children were playing in the distance. That’s how I fondly remember the most recent episode, featuring the AWESOME Matt Bushman.

Matt Bushman

We catch up with Matt and talk about his new album “Younger Side of Old“, making music and staying connected in the pandemic, and growing out your hair cause you can. His newest tracks are just fantastic; mature songwriting and performances combined with top notch production. It is highly reccomended that you click the link above right now to listen or buy on your favorite format.

We had a lot of fun this week. Matt has a great sense of humor and is a blast to talk to, in addition to being an amazing musician. Kadillac Kim and Ian are able to make it to the show this week. Rick and Rory take a stroll (or two) down Inappropriate Memory Lane. And Nick, well, he’s just here for the kicks.

Thanks for listening!

Weapons of Mass Creation - Repeat Offenders, Top Contenders

You can’t keep a good band down and no Reno band epitomizes that made-up saying better than our guests this week, Weapons of Mass Creation. You can’t call it a comeback, because they’ve been here for many years (you can’t call it a plagarism, because it’s altered a bit.).

We get to talk to them about the ever-ongoing next album, getting closer and closer to completion. We start the musical segments of the show, with a special look at Joe Atack’s solo project. Pan clues us into what he’s been up to as Reno’s current poet laureate (you can catch monthly him at Sierra Arts in the historic downtown Artists’ Lofts). We also get an update on many things theater, including Good Luck MacBeth, GhostLight TV and Dancers and Bands (featuring One Ton Dually and Fanci Valle on the most recent episode)

It’s a good fun show. Stay safe and fight the power.

Thanks for listening.

The tension is always palpable when this trio gets together. Online, over Zoom, it was no different. Sploosh.

Once again, we are happy to welcome Grimedog to the Worst Little Podcast studio! They are always a blast with bigger than life stories of bad decisions and rural Nevada. Joining WOlfman and Lucas is new/old member Ben! Listen to the show to find out more.

They were also a featured performer at this past weekend benefit (covered on last week’s podcast) – fighting the good fight and helping #spreadthesparkle. The songs on the podcast made their debut this weekend at the event.

This weekend, Worst Little Podcast and Marianarchy Reno are proud to be co-hosts of an event organized by our good friend, Momo Mendoza of Momo Promo. The event is a Virtual Fundraiser for Shades of Queening, an advocacy and support resource for women of color in Reno.



Reno is a transient town and not nearly as diverse as other urban and cultural centers; the support systems that might exist elsewhere, based on family and community, especially for women of color, are not as strong as they should be in this community. Shades of Queening attempts to encourage and facilitate those networks and community development in a rapidly changing Reno.

Worst Little Podcast and Marianarchy Reno are honored to have been included in the hosts of this event which also include Momo Promo, Jub Jub’s Thirst Parlor, Grave Yard Shift Productions, Reno Pyrate Punx Chapter 21 , Loud As Folk, Alexandr Entertainment, and Hannah Chamber Productions.

The entertainment will include video (edited by Quinton Bunk) from:
Sad Giants, Lysteria775, Jill Marlene and Gabe of Wheatstone Bridge, Vague Choir, Jm LAce, Hired Fun, Terrell Street, Ummm Jr, Nordic Daughter, Knife Fight, Spike McGuire, Tommy and The Tongues, Grimedog, sCHIZoPOLITANs, JUST-IN Beaver, Donkey Jaw, Nick Ramirez, Heterophobia, Skitz Bebo, Christopher Chamberlain-Nonan, Pink Awful, The Sonic Dead, AL1CE, 7-Out, and Luke Wynn

We are still accepting donations for the auction, so please hit up Momo Promo on FB

Unfortunately, due to scheduling errors at the last minute, we were unable to record a show with Momo and Shades of Queening, so this week’s episode is a rerun of the Schizopolitan’s 2018 appearance on the show.

Buckle up this week, kids – it’s a wild ride!

Johnno the Rhino

Once again, we are happy to welcome past sonsor and longtime friend of the show, Johnno the Rhino, international DJ and local business owner at Reno Carson Messenger Service. Johnno regales us with tales from abroad during the pandemic, including one of the last music festivals – BAZIQUE! – held before the world wen on lockdown in March, in South Africa. The tracks this week are live recordings of his set that night.

The Bazique Music Festival

We don’t have much control over this episode. Johnno is a ‘fire and forget’ kind of guest. He was cracking us up before we started rolling tape. It’s wild and unhinged and hilarious and honest and fun.

Johnno is also still working the Golden Gate Project and figuring out ways to change lives hearts and minds, starting with bringing music the kids in hospitals. Head over to the website and check it out. It’s really wonderful
