Rory is home with his beautiful new baby (CONGRATS AGAIN!) so Nick, Kim, and Dogwater “Dick in the Back” are holding it down at the studio with our good friends Silver! Well 4/5 of them anyway. They’re here to promote their new EP, Rock’n’Roll is Dead, coming at you June 3rd, and we’re giving you a first listen! Press play to hear it before you can buy it. We’re getting deep with the band this week. There’s TMI, fake meltdowns, and shenanigans that’ll leave you asking “is this podcast public?”

With each member having varying backgrounds in folk, country, rock, punk, blues, and pop, a wide array of styles and influences come to play and color their diverse sound.

Welcome to this week’s Worst Little Podcast!
Kim, Rory, and Rick are sitting down with part of the cast of the musical Get Bent: A Gender Bent Musical Review. In the studio we have Michelle, Stephanie, and the lovely Xelena – Empress of the Impossible – here to fill us in on their latest gender bending production. They answer the hard questions and share a few songs from the show. So listen up and play along at home.
For Sisters Three Productions co-creators/producers Michelle Calhoun and Stephanie McMullen, it was important to show that a part can be just as impactful when done by the opposite gender for which it was written, and at times even more powerful. “Get Bent” is an original production that will feature famous musical numbers but with a twist: everything is gender bent. Proceeds of this production will benefit Our Center, a local shelter for programs, services, and resources for the LBGTQ community in Reno.
See Get Bent starting November 10th at The Potentialist Workshop. Show dates and tickets can be found here.This production is suitable for ages 13+, and the after dark show (Saturday at 10 pm) is suitable for ages 18+. Thanks to the cast of Get Bent for being on the show!

Thursday – Check out Sam Chase with Greg Gilmore at Pignic. Both these guys pack the house so get there early! 8 p.m. 21+ No cover.
Also Thursday is United for Puerto Rico at the Saint. Show some love to our fellow Americans recovering from one of the most devastating natural disasters in recent memory. The lineup features Reno’s own Rigorous Proof , The Novelists, and Keyser Soze. 9 p.m. 21+ $5 suggested donation.
Friday – Generation WE: A Hip HOpera opens this Friday at the Potentialist Workshop. This will be a once in a lifetime experience with music from Weapons of Mass Creation. This innovative production tells the story of four individuals each in possession of a mysterious silver ticket and each searching for America but finding a lot more than they bargained for along the way. Presented in the form of a Hip-HOpera the story unfolds through theatrical performance, song, rap, poetry and dance. Click here for show dates and tickets. $15 adv/$18 at the door.
Saturday – Show up at Shea’s for some witchy metal from NYC band Vajra, joined by locals Uncle Angry and American Slacker Society. 9 p.m. 21+
On a sad note, we are heartbroken to hear the news that our friend, Scott Dundas, lost his son over the weekend from a hit and run driver. Please click here to help support the Dundas family in their time of grief. Nobody expects these things to happen and any amount you can give will help ease the family’s financial burden at this horrible time. It’s a good time to remember that life is short and we love you.

But FIRST we are joined briefly by excellent Reno songwriter, Greg Gilmore. Greg is talking to us about/premiering his new single, What Am I? Check out his Facebook page for video’s and music links. Let’s listen to some music!
But back to Basement Tapes. Basement Tapes describes their music as retro, 60s, raw, high-energy garage rock. Revisiting a time when music had music had soul, with post-modern punk attitude, melodic, grooving bass lines, thunderous rolling drums, powerful crashing guitar riffs and a harmonious couple on vocals. Basement Tapes plays straight-forward simple rock and roll.
