Good Luck Macbeth
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!
We hope the rest of you had awesome Thanksgiving’s like we did. Last week was pretty rad for Reno music. This week won’t be any different!

OH, Good! You’re here.
It’s time once more to have players from Good Luck MacBeth’s Fall Farcical on the show. This year, the offering is “Silence! The Musical”, an extremely irreverent spoof of 1991’s “Silence of the Lambs”. If you’ve been keeping score at home, you know that Reverend Rory is one of those players and he’s back on the show this week as a really mouthy guest. He is portraying the smarmy and douchey Dr. Chilton. Joining him are his cast mates and leading men of the show, Cody Canon (Buffalo Bill) and Ryan Kelly (Hannibal Lecter). Cody is an accomplished acrobat, physical performer and stage-hound; while Ryan has made his mark as a powerful singer and actor on many Reno stages in recent years. Between the three of them, they are the major and minor villains of the show.
We are also joined on the show, via digital technology (a cellphone), Assistant Director, Dance Captain and the surliest of all the lambs, good friend of the show, Ashley Marie James. We have a toast with her over the phone and chat a little about the show… and a lot about other things. Unfortunately we were not able to have any music for the show on the podcast (that would be giving away too much). But our man in the past, Archivist Chewbacca comes through by way of an early 90’s Satan’s Pimp Release – the G.O.B./ Loadstar split 7″. We also have an exclusive track from Vague Choir‘s newest (unreleased!!) album! After 6 years, we still bring you the newest Reno music we can get our hands on.
If you’d like to come see “Silence! The Musical”, you can still get tickets (for now) at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2432180.
Thanks for listening!
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!
