Qarin – That Bad Dude On Your Shoulder

S7 E32

Heyo, Reno! At first I wasn’t in the mood to write this blog but I’ve had like half a bottle of wine and I’ve been watching videos of baby goats in pajamas so…. let’s do this! *two hours later* Do you guys even know how many cute baby animal compilations there are on the internet? Do you?! I thought the internet was for porn and publishing terrible music podcasts. I was wrong. Seriously, check out these baby owls. I mean come on…

ANYWAY! I’m here to do the thing with Qarin (pronounced car-in) this week! These guys were so talented and entertaining. Listen up for deviants, dick jokes, and of course, METAL.

Thanks a bunch for being with us this week, Qarin. You guys are the real deal and you’re also super funny and hella nice. I hope I’m not ruining your reputations right now or anything.  MAKE SURE you go to Jub Jub’s Friday night to see Qarin’s first show since some major shit went down with the band. Celebrate, wear a costume, and save a few bucks for a beer! I’ll leave you with an eloquent toast from the band, “we’ll fuck ’em standing, we’ll fuck ’em lying, if they had wings we’d fuck ’em flying, and when she’s dead and long forgotten, we’ll dig her up and fuck her rotten. Sorry, not sorry.

Get Bent!

Welcome to this week’s Worst Little Podcast!

Kim, Rory, and Rick are sitting down with part of the cast of the musical Get Bent: A Gender Bent Musical Review. In the studio we have Michelle, Stephanie, and the lovely Xelena – Empress of the Impossible – here to fill us in on their latest gender bending production. They answer the hard questions and share a few songs from the show. So listen up and play along at home.

Michelle Calhoun – Co-founder of Sisters Three Productions and co-producer of the musical review, Get Bent.

For Sisters Three Productions co-creators/producers Michelle Calhoun and Stephanie McMullen, it was important to show that a part can be just as impactful when done by the opposite gender for which it was written, and at times even more powerful. “Get Bent” is an original production that will feature famous musical numbers but with a twist: everything is gender bent. Proceeds of this production will benefit Our Center, a local shelter for programs, services, and resources for the LBGTQ community in Reno.

Thanks to the band for being on the show! We had a great time interviewing you three and we’ll be looking out for your upcoming shows. Follow them on Facebook so you can too! Salythian rocks. Literally.

In other news, I would like to give a shout out to Headquarters Bar and to the bands that played Saturday night to raise money for the victims of the Las Vegas shooting. SWIGS, One Ton Dually, and Riptide Bandits slayed that room and raised $360. If you haven’t visited Headquarters yet, get your tail down there. It is Reno As Fuck in the best way. If you’re inclined to help your fellow Renoites make downtown greater than ever, head over to their fundraiser page. There are some pretty sweet rewards, but really, the only reward I need is HQ staying open so I can see more rad shows like Saturday night’s.
