Hello! We’re live from the recent, frozen past this week with podcast virgins Condemned Existence! We’re talking about the state of the Reno scene, Rory throws some shade (and light!), and we ask important questions like “does playing rock and roll get you laid?” (spoiler: not really). It’s always terrifying when the gang bang starts with this much enthusiasm. Press play!

Condemnded Existence describes their sound as a blend of fast thrash parts with groovy rhythms and breaks. They most recently opened for the amazing Ned Flanders themed metal band, Okily Dokily! Their next show is March 22 in Concord. Follow their social medias to keep an eye out for their EP release happening soon.

Thanks to Condemned Existence for being such fun guests! Until we hear from them again, stay busy this weekend. Do something. Be seen! Puke in a strangers garbage can and stumble home from any of these events!

Welcome to literally the worst podcast in the world!

The-Worst-Little-Podcast-2017-08-28  – S7 E26 Download Link

This week we welcome Rory back to the show but not in his normal capacity as he is one of tonight’s guests! Also missing but present is Mr. Nick Ramirez. Nick and Rory, along with band-mates Spike and Jackson are here as One Ton Dually, and they’re ready with like six songs, so hold onto your tits, dear listeners. Listen up as Chewy and Kadillac Kim attempt to fill Nick and Rory’s rather large hosting shoes/chairs. We’re here talking about murders and Reno and Murderino’s!

But enough about us, let’s talk about the BAND. One Ton Dually is a rock and roll band from Reno, NV, singing songs about fast drinking and hard wimmin (yeah, they made that a word). The band describes themselves as a 4-speed good time transmission with top of the line suspension and a powerful engine under the hood. I’d take that for a ride, and you should too.

One Ton Dually has recently played at the Saint and Shea’s, which is to say they get around. If you know what I mean… Like their Facebook page to learn about new show dates and to link to their music.

While you’re waiting for One Ton Dually, be sure to check out the following awesome-sauce events in Reno.

This Friday is Foxy First Friday with host Rory Dowd, featuring Mike Metzger. Apparently Mike is well recommended by many low-life musicians who own guitars. I mean, that’s what the internet has to say and the internet is never wrong. If you want to challenge the internet, or if you just want to hear some great live music, get to Foxy Olive by 9 p.m.  21+ No cover.

Saturday punk bands U.S. Bombs / Abandon Minds / Another Damn Disappointment share the stage at Shea’s. 9 p.m. 21+

If you haven’t heard, Sunday is the new Saturday in Reno. Check out the Violence Creeps / Negative Sex / Murder Dream at the Holland Project. 8 p.m. all ages. $5

At Alturas on the DL, go have an epic good time seeing Johnny Cash tribute Cash’d Out with Cowboy Indian. 21+ 8 p.m. $15 (tickets here)

For all you Burner’s and would be Burners, Monday through Wednesday is the annual city wide party known as The Great Depressurization, presented by our friends at Fresh Bakin’. Decompress and readjust to the default world with excellent entertainment by the likes of Kelly Proud (details here), The Utility Players (details here), and big name DJ’s. The three day event takes place at The Eldorado, Silver Legacy, and Circus Circus in Reno, and MontBleu Resort in South Lake Tahoe. Click through to see the full lineup.

If you need a break from the casino traffic, go to Cargo on Tuesday for Saving Banksy / The Great Bingo Revival at Cargo. See the film, stay for the party. 21+ 8 p.m. no cover

That’s all I’ve got this week and this is where I’ll be. If you have events you think I should go to let me know! I’ll do just about anything once.

There’s no show next week thanks to Labor Day, but we’ll be back on September 11th with Riptide Bandits! Thanks for listening Reno. You’re the best.

Switching gears from the onslaught of recent bands, this week, we went solo. We went old school, with longtime Reno musician, Todd Ballowe getting down at the studio. An ironman of Reno entertainers, Todd has played an active role, in different capacities, in the Reno entertainment and music scene for over 20 years. And yet, he still has time to drop by our shitty little show for a second time! What a sucker great guy!

Experience the smoothness…

Todd was recently a featured performer at Marianarchy Winterball 2015 and you’ll be able to catch him at the upcoming, ressurected, new and improved, Foxy First Friday with the Reverend Rory Dowd at the Foxy Olive on January 1st! Despite NYE being on the day before Todd and I are going to rock the House, down at the Foxy. Won’t you join us?

The cast of Avenue Q and their puppets

Do you like fun? We hope you like fun! You can spell fun, right? G-E-T-T-I-N-G-H-I-G-H spells fun! In an unprecedented show, we have a number of members of the cast from the Tahoe Players’  production of Avenue Q! Cast members Princeton, Kate Monster, Nicky and a couple of Bad Idea Bears join us for the show. They are an interesting bunch – a little on the creepy side though, and not just because they are puppets. Surprisingly, Nicky gets the lowest score on the quiz that we’ve ever had on the show EVER!

Later in the show, the wonderful puppeteer and acting talent of Sarah Turner (Girl Bad Idea Bear), Tarek Barghouti (Princeton), Melissa Barusch (Kate Monster), Joanna Dunlap (Nicky) and Shawna Hafen (Boy Bad Idea Bear) join us in the studio. They’re a great bunch and we had a lot of fun talking to them on the show and listening to some of their songs, as accompanied by friend of the show, Tristan Selzler, on the ivories.

Late in the show we take a call from The Vampirates on the road. Chris Fox tells us a finny story form their time in The Sunshine State that you can also read all about here!
