Good Luck Macbeth
You can’t keep a good band down and no Reno band epitomizes that made-up saying better than our guests this week, Weapons of Mass Creation. You can’t call it a comeback, because they’ve been here for many years (you can’t call it a plagarism, because it’s altered a bit.).
We get to talk to them about the ever-ongoing next album, getting closer and closer to completion. We start the musical segments of the show, with a special look at Joe Atack’s solo project. Pan clues us into what he’s been up to as Reno’s current poet laureate (you can catch monthly him at Sierra Arts in the historic downtown Artists’ Lofts). We also get an update on many things theater, including Good Luck MacBeth, GhostLight TV and Dancers and Bands (featuring One Ton Dually and Fanci Valle on the most recent episode)
It’s a good fun show. Stay safe and fight the power.
Thanks for listening.
Hello and welcome to the Worst Little Podcast! This week we’ve got Reno newcomer Dan Abbott playing a bunch of spooky tunes and the cast of Good Luck Macbeth’s Let the Right One In. There’s zombies! There’s vampires! There’s time travel stories! Press play!
Dan Abbott hails from the East Bay and recently relocated to Reno. Dan talked with us about the inspiration behind his songs, his other bands, and events he has planned for Reno. Go say hi to Dan at Jub’s on November 24th for his next event, Knew Better Did it Anyway. It’s storytelling show where people get together and tell stories about their worst decisions in exchange for free drinks! We’ll keep you updated on Dan’s other upcoming events.
Don’t miss GLM’s Let the Right One In, opening October 4th and playing through the end of the month. Courtney, Jayten, and our good pal Joe Atack stopped by to talk about this spooky love story about a vampire and her friend Oskar. From the producers: Oskar is a bullied lonely teenage boy living with his mother on a housing estate at the edge of town, when a spate of sinister killings rock the neighbourhood. Eli is the young girl who has just moved in next door. She doesn’t go to school and never leaves the flat by day. Sensing in each other a kindred spirit, the two become devoted friends. What Oskar doesn’t know is that Eli has been a teenager for a very long time. Let the Right one is plays Thursday through Sunday until October 26th. Get your tickets ASAP here.

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.

Whoa baby boy did we have some fun with this week’s guest, Skew Ring! Little is known about this mysterious five piece band out of Reno, Nevada. That’s what we’re here for! By the end of this episode you will know far too much. Sorry, not sorry. Listen up to hear what the excellent Reno rock band, Skew Ring, has to say/play (spoilers: it’s mostly gay jokes).
Skew Ring has been around a short time and even after this podcast, little is still known about these elusive beasts. They have recently played The Saint and The Holland Project and there’s talk of an EP coming out soon. Keep an eye on their Instagram for updates on where you can see them in the wild. And trust me, you should definitely see them in the wild.
Thanks for coming on the show, Skew Ring!
