Greetings and welcome back to the Worst Little Podcast! Your hosts Rick, Nick “I’m Too High for This” Ramirez, Chewbacca and Kadillac Kim are back after a little vacation to bring you an exciting show featuring the immensely talented singer-songwriter, Ryan James, and the partial cast/crew of Good Luck Macbeth’s The Play About a Dick. We’re talking about dicks this week so buckle up. This episode is definitely NSFG (Not Safe for Grandma). Press play!
First up is our musical guest Ryan James, who is prepping for his first full length album release this Friday at West Street Market with the Grimtones and Jake Houston. Ryan has put together quite the Reno super group to back him. You’re in for a treat Friday night at this all ages show.
We were also joined by Ashley, Dave, and Amanda Alvey who is the director of the newest show at Good Luck Macbeth, The Play About a Dick. From the event page: Good Luck Macbeth is proud to produce the US premiere of Aaron Wilton’s hilarious and provocative work, “The Play About a Dick”. A middle-aged woman, Enid, meets a younger man online for sex. But what starts as a simple rendezvous becomes a darkly comedic exploration of vulnerability, intimacy and empathy. After an unpredictable reaction, things become chaotic for Enid as her life gradually spirals outward. The play about a dick. examines themes of communication, guilt, kindness, solitude, gender roles, human connection, post-truth reality and existential vacuity. Its also a play about a dick.

Back again for the first time…solo! We have the pleasure of getting to hang out with our good friend Scott Turek this week. Scott (formerly of Bazooka Zoo) comes to us this time around with a very special offering – sad, sad, sad songs on the acoustic guitar. Despite his playful and sunny exterior, inside this husk of a man is a brooding and tortured heart, bereft of hope. Just kidding…. there’s like ONE dance-y tune in here (but seriously, ladies and gents, someone hug this man!)
Scott does gift us with a great set of his own music, some planned for, some not, but all quite on point and mesmerizing. His voice oozes into your ears like smooth caramel, taking you along for the story, while his fingers dance on the strings, keeping the momentum going. This man is some serious songwriting and playing talent; enough that I question whether or not his soul has been left tied up at a crossroads somewhere. You’ll be able to catch him at the Midtown Art Walk stage at Statewide Lighting, on Virginia Street on June 28. You can also find him on his website.
Kim is still not with us this week, but I’ll do my best to keep up with the weekend roundup:
Continuing all weekend long, through Saturday, June 30, Merry War Theater is presenting The Taming of the Shrew on the steps of the Lear Theater at sundown.
Tonight June 21 has two great shows lined up for you:
At Shea’s is The Deadly Gallows, Sanderlings and Josiah Knight!
Also, at Clark Lane Mall you can catch Color TV, Marigold, Frankly Fictitious and Blunderbusst!
El Bowlritto 5 at the Skatehouse
Taipan, Contortion, Smooth Sailing at Jub Jub’s
The events just never stop people.
Thanks for listening.
Seasoned troubadour Cole Adams wandered on into the podcast this week to play some tunes for us. Cole is a singer/songwriter new to the 775; most recently he had been living and playing in LA, having moved there from St. Louis, MO. Lots of love for ‘The Lou’ this week and The Rev and Cole gush at each other a little bit. After many years of strong performances, Adams struck out west, landing in LA for a time. He had the opportunity to play and record with Generations, a San Diego area band. This is also where he met hew partner, Stevie Rose, at a coffee shop. Stevie Rose is a henna artist working in the Reno/Carson/Sparks and Stead area. (You can find her designs or contact her for services at Heart of Henna.) The couple recently moved to the Reno area for new opportunities.
Cole will be appearing all summer long at The Renaissance and you can find out more about that on Cole’s Facebook page. Cole will be appearing at Ceol in a few weeks and will be a featured performer at the July “Loud As Folk”. Cole also has a Youtube channel, Cole Adams Music, where he will be releasing new videos every week.
As you may have gathered, this is not Kadillac Kim writing this. Kim had a major surgery this week and will be out of commission for a few weeks. At the time of this writing, Kim is healing well and itching to get back home. We wish her well and are excited for her to be fully healed and able to live her life again. WE LOVE YOU KIM!!!!!
Thanks for Listening.
