Welcome to spring in Reno – pack a heavy coat!

It’s amazing that we haven’t had them on the show before, but we are happy to bring to you the musical talents of Robert “Bobbo” Clark and Anthony Vairetta of Sil Shoda. Sil Shoda is a Reno rock band that has enjoyed some bit of notoriety in the past decade with their high energy shows and strong musicianship.

While they have been publicly quiet as of late, Sil Shoda has been furiously masturbating recording behind the scenes; they hope to have a few releases hit the airwaves and internet this year, so be sure to keep an eye out for that as well as shows on their Facebook and reverbnation pages. Also – they are just a blast to bullshit with; I really mean it this time when I say that this was one of the most fun shows we’ve ever done.

Speaking of fun shows, don’t forget that this is your last chance to see “Sex, Drugs, Rock and Roll” at Good Luck Macbeth, featuring our very own Nick Ramirez. We get a teaser of the show with him at the top of the episode, so if you like what you year – go get some culture and see the show!

Thanks for Listening!

Thünderhead – Keep Jerkin’ Around

Wake up and smell the hot metal!

The Worst Little Podcast – S5 E28 – Download Link

Thünderhead comes in and slays the studio this week. Damn! Rader Hendrix, Layne Roberts and Carlos Pintor swagger in with their long hair and cool t-shirts and tattoos and absolutely lived up to the hype. “Thrash Motorhead” is about the best I can come up with to describe it in a nutshell. Intense and wailing and full tilt, Thünderhead was a blast in the face, even just here in the studio. They’ve got a lot of shows coming up in the next few months, so really really really get up and check them out.

At the top of the show we also take a call with Kate Atak, one of the stars of “Clown Bar“, a play by Adam Szymkowicz, and Vaude Villian’s latest production at Good Luck MacBeth. The interview with Kate is lots of fun – including a bit of a sneak teaser from the show – and I could talk to her for hours about theater and shows in Reno. She plays PoPo, a clown with… impulse control issues, we’ll say. But that’s not what’s important here; what’s important is “Clown Bar”. Holy shitballs! Let me say that again: HOLY SHITBALLS! While some people may find clowns disturbing (like my girlfriend who accompanied me), I have always had a love for carnivals and circuses and clowns. Chalk it up to “Pink Elephants on Parade”, whatever.

“Clown Bar” is a unique look at the back alley tents inhabited by the lowest common denominator of clown. The Vaude Villian production is accompanied by a wholesome and charming balloon sculpture opening act with John Wade, a brief film and other interactive sideshow acts that really set the tone and mood for the next hour of your life. Ryan Kelly, leads as Happy, an ex-clown turned cop, investigating his brother’s whereabouts. He, Atak, and others (spoilers!) lend memorable performances to Ashley Marie James’ directorial debut.

The show is a knockout; cheap laughs at tragic jokes abound in this gritty comedy. The entire cast and theater came together, creating a not-so-Big top atmosphere that fully draws the audience into the show. This Vaude Villian cast was a well-oiled, drunken, lampooning machine. I was thoroughly devilishly delighted and tickled throughout the whole show; even my girlfriend went from mildly terrified to simply unnerved truly enjoyed the show and the performances of the night.

Like “Evil Dead: The Musical” last year, “Clown bar” is shaping up to be a sellout run. The show is playing weekends throughout the end of October, with a final show on Halloween night. Get yourself some tickets at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/1117547.

Infecto Skeletons – The Blandrew Sessions

We might not be rich, but we’re having fun…

The Worst Little Podcast S5 E14 – Download Link

What a great show! I’m actually listening to this one right now so I can say so with authority! The Infecto Skeletons invade The New Dogwater Studios (Dog H202?) for the first time. For the uninitiated, he Infectos are a punk rock band from Reno NV that has been with us for a number of years now. And to put it in a nutshell: They fucking kill it. They thrash, they rage, they wail and croon. They get people moving and don’t stop until they are ready to fall over. They are a great band to see and a fucking onlaught of fun and drama and punk rock to hang out with.

The Infecto Skeletons share with us a bunch of new songs on the show, songs that will be on the new album! If you want to catch them this weekend, they will be playing at PUNK VS. METAL, a Myke Read Presents night of punk rock and metal, with a winner to be declarede at the end of the bout, by popular applause! Are you a punk? Are you a metalhead? Come see Infecto Skeletons,  Dissidence, The Business EndOstracizedThe Sex Devils and Down Time  and cheer your team on!!

Last weekend, I went out to see “Shiner“, the most recent Good Luck Macbeth production, and it hit me in the sweet spot. Directed by Bill Ware, written by Christian Durso and starring Kate Atack and Patrick John Kiernan, “Shiner” is the story of two outcast teenagers in the mid-90’s, set in the weeks leading up to Kurt Cobain’s death. It is a must-see; don’t hesitate, just trust me. Nostalgic, without being saccharine, the journey of the characters is easily accessible to anyone who was in their teens and twenties in that decade. It helped me reach back across the years and touch the righteous fire of my rebellion, wince with chagrin at the all-too-familiar awkward actions of a newbie poser. It’s not a play of remembrance and a better time, cause the world was shit then and it still is now; it is a play of reminding, reminding you about what was important, what was wrong, and what drove you before you learned to compromise. It’s surreal and invigorating and inspiring. My initial reaction upon walking outside and being asked what I thought: “I need a cigarette, a moment, a shot, to rub one out, a snackl and maybe a nap.”  This is good theater, kids, theater that doesn’t compromise and invites you to come as you are. Srsly. Go. Follow the link above or right here and buy tickets now. There are only three shows left.

This Friday is the Final First Friday at Foxy Olive with the Reverend Rory Dowd. Sad, but true. It’s been an awesome run and we’ve had a lot of fun this past year, but events out of our control make it un-feasible. Our Guest is Glynn Osburn of Limbo State, who is an amazing performer and will be a great note to go out on. Come out, help us close it down reel gud  and party like a rock star.

Evil Dead: The Musical – Vaude Villan

Gimme some sugar, baby….

The Worst Little Podcast – S4 E31

It’s finally October – our favorite time of year! The days shorten and cool and thoughts turn to the warm glowing eyes of demons and monsters. It’s the spooky time! To celebrate this fact, Vaude Villain Entertainment has brought the second greatest musical adventure known to man to a Reno Stage. From Vaude Villain’s production of Evil Dead: The Musical we have co-directors John Frederick and Ashley Marie James (an Evil Tree) and Jeff Bentley (Jake) in the studio to talk about the show and Reno theater!

We also take a call from Evan Buckley Harris, the production’s Ash, while he was on the road. That was fun and totally not awkward at all! The cast is a fun tight knit group who really kill the performance. Full disclosure: I’m also a part of Vaude Villain Entertainment and, as you are likely aware of, a producer of this show. Other than sitting in on a voice rehearsal and seeing a couple rehearsal short videos of movement rehearsals, I hadn’t seen this production at all until opening night and it. Was. A. BLAST. We’ve had sold out shows so far and you should really do yourself a favor and follow the link and get yourself presale tickets – this is a hot ticket right now in the Reno nightlife scene.
