And BAM! just like that, people come through!
Hello all you fine people out there in internet land! Since nothing goes off without a hitch around here, we had some scheduling problems
because Reverend Rory is an asshole. But our good friend Jarrod Evans, bassist from Slut Fungus, was able to come in and throw down some acoustic tracks with us. Thanks for coming through, mang!
Also in the studio is Reno artist Kelly Ogilvie. She has a show that will be closing at Reno Art Works on April 25. Her show, Well Red, will be on display until then. Ogilvie is a painter and fiber artist, meaning she makes art from fibers and materials. I’ve also seen her do a little spot welding here and there – follow the hyperlink on her name to find her FB page and check out some of her art there. As talented as she is adorable, Kelly kinda keeps quiet until the quiz. THEN the gloves really come off and we all fall in love with her.
Also want to mention that there is a great show this weekend at the Reno Tahoe Comedy Club in the Pioneer Underground with Frankie Quinones. Would have had a phoner, but for the aforementioned scheduling issues, it didn’t happen. However, personally, Frankie seems like a pretty cool guy, so you should go support him and Reno Comedy at the club this Friday or Saturday night!
And if you’re looking for something do do, don’t forget about Stregapalooza this Friday night, hosted by Reverend Rory (who will play a set as well) and featuring THREE of Nick’s bands. Saturday, Rev. Rory will also be at A Salon 7 for their 9th annual White Party Fundraiser. All obvious jokes aside (like the ones we make on the episode), this is another really great benefit – this year it will be going to FOUR separate charities. Pretty killer.
Anyway…. Thanks for listening!!!
MERRY CHRISTMAS, MOTHERFUCKERS!
I’m not going to get into it this week. We have Rikku in the studio and Ashley Polanski, local thespian and performer, to talk about Good Luck MacBeth and their new location. (The Dr. Sketchy thing was actually last night… so… whoops). Rikku sings soem songs, forces us to sing with her, then sings some more as we talk inappropriately over her head.
Listen to the show. Get drunk. Have warm fuzzys and hold the person you love tight.
I’m going to be thinking about a girl in Portland that I miss and drinking a steaming glass of whiskey.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Rory, Rick, Nick, Josh, Spencer, Shaun and all of our families.
We do all this for you and couldn’t do it without you!
Thanks for Listening!
Stand up and make some noise!
Bringing it to you with a boom and a bang are Weapons of Mass Creation. They are going to assault your ears and make you think – dangerous stuff there. Joe Atack, Pan* Pantoja, Abel Press and Aric Shapiro dropped by the studio to blow us away for an hour or so with the heat. What kind of heat? The kind that makes you get out of your seat and onto your feet to clamor and stammer at the drop of the beat. (See I’m still so pumped from the show, they gots me rhyming.)
While they do aim to entertain, Weapons of Mass Creation are advocates for the revolution of the mind, making people think dangerous thoughts and take direct action to build a better community. There is no fluff in their songs. They don’t know the meaning of ‘slow’. They only know how to go, go, go and inspire. Aside from the band, Pantoja and Shapiro are a driving force behind Reno Art Works. Pantoja is also an art instructor at Rainshadow Charter School. We spend a lot of time talking about how that august institution is doing and how they need some more community support. And strangely (for us anyway) we get pretty serious for a while at the beginning of the show, talking politics and philosophy before we get to all the sex and fart jokes.
I almost for got to mention – CHEWBACCA IS BACK!!! After laying thousands of bricks in the past few months, he comes back and mouths off a whole bunch before ruining a bit at the end of the show. Yeah, laugh it up, fuzz ball. It was nice having the whole gang back together this week (although we will be taking a brief break next week since we’re all going to be at the Knitting Factory, watching The Liver Scars open for The Misfits. You should go. No, really – you should go.
Finally, I want to mention that Weapons of Mass Creation are having a CD release show at Lincoln Lounge this Friday, 11/9. The CD, For Your Revolution, sounds killer. 10 bucks gets you in and a copy of the CD. You want to do this. Trust me. I know. They are an exciting fucking band and will melt your eyeballs out of your head.
Thanks for Listening!
Some days are just made for sleeping in.
Hey Kids – how about a spooky podcast? Well, tough shit. Halloween is now over – it’s November and we all know that means it’s just 50-some odd shopping days until the burning death and destruction predicted in the Mayan calendar! In Studio this week, we have Eric Foreman, Daisy Foreman
(no relation), and Rhiannon Box of Stabby Unicorn. If you want to know what they soud like, I’d hazard that it’s 80s goth/dance music with the sensibilities of 90s shoe-gazer rock… or something like that.
Sorry it’s late again this week, but it’s a busy freaking season right now!!! Lots of great stuff happening over at the DOgwater Studios, including the release of the great (Un)Discovered 2012 comp, originally recordded in the backyard back in the beginning of the summer. Stabby Unicorn is on it, so is Rev. Rory - but he sucks and totally froze up. Stabby Unicorn didn’t – they killed it. Contact CherryBear Records or Dogwater Studios for your very own copy!
I’ve gotta run do this is about it. Go see Stabby Unicorn! Problably the best new Reno band this year, IMHO.
Thanks for listening!
The Worst Little Podcast in the World!
-WARNING: NSFW The Worst Little Podcast in the World is exactly that. It is blunt. It is tasteless tacky and offensive. And it is on the internet. But WLP isn't just for self indulgence, no! It is a chance for us to highlight the Greater Reno Area and everything that makes this town rock.
Find us on the iTunes store!
-Everyone involved in the show is a lifer in Reno and pretty deeply involved with the local scenes. In any one of our stellarly mediocre episodes you can hear Rory, Nick, Josh and Rick talk about what they are up to, interviews with local personalities, live musical performances and maybe, just maybe, something that will make you laugh.
-For booking, contact The Reverend at email@example.com .
