LIT at Night
Hello again, and welcome to the Worst Little Podcast in the world! This week Almond Mocha Music and poet extraordinaire, Elisa Garcia joined us on the show. Listen up as Kim, Kelly, and Elisa take over Dogwater Studios (RV, Rory, Nick, and Dogwater Dick are here too). We’re steering the ship now, and we’ve got beer. Look out. We’ve got Rory’s shitty old poems, Almond Mocha’s sexy chill vibes, and sexy raindrops galore for the lovely Elisa.
Almond Mocha Music is RV, aka Motorhome Music, and Kelly Proud. They describe themselves as fun, exciting, dancey enough to get your feet tapping but still appropriately layers over conversation on a long drive or over a cup of coffee. This new musical journey between these two musicians is a wonderful departure from the norm. Stitch and @motorhomemusic shatter musical expectations with their collaboration, Almond Mocha. Described as “uplifting” and “hopeful music” this step outside of either of their creative norms produces a sound consistently compared to The Postal Service, The Album Leaf and Massive Attack.
Reno’s slam queen, Elisa, works with the Holland Project producing weekly all ages open poetry nights and produces the quarterly adult themed poetry night, LIT at Night. See the next installment of LIT at Night April 21st at Headquarters Bar.
This weekend is St. Patrick’s day, and as always there’s no shortage of

Hi, Reno! Welcome to the Worst Little Podcast! This week Rory, Nick, and Dogwater Dick are hosting the show, featuring Reno country duo, Huckleberry Road! Robbie and Anthony sat down with us to talk murder songs, marketing, and the Flying Spaghetti Monster. And there’s music! Press play!
Huckleberry Road is an American Country group with rock and traditional country music roots formed by Robbie James and Anthony Vairetta of Sil Shoda. Listen up to hear how they transitioned from a well known hard rock band to Reno country staples.
If you listened to the show you heard our call for murder songs. We aren’t kidding! I think… Regardless, send in your stuff. We will make that Reno murder song compilation happen. Thanks again to Huckleberry Road for hanging out with us this week. Check in next week for Cowboy Indian!

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at the Worst Little Podcast! This week we have something to be extra thankful for. Our guests this week are the phenomenally talented folks of Reno’s best Garage Soul band, Failure Machine.
Failure Machine’s current lineup is Spencer Kilpatrick on guitar and singing stuff, Clintonious Philbin on drums, and Rachael McElhiney plays bari sax and also does singing stuff.
Failure Machine plays all the cool basements and sometimes they play for the rest of us who aren’t cool enough for basements. See Failure Machine’s next show at The Saint, New Years Eve! It’s a Failure Machine, Dainesly, and Team Francis high school prom do-over! As a special treat, they’ll be performing soul covers of Misfits songs. I am really excited, guys.
Thanks so much for being our guest this week! We can’t wait to see you again!
It may be Thanksgiving weekend, but don’t fret, Reno isn’t going to let a little thing like a family holiday get in the way of our good time. If you need an excuse to flee awkward conversations and racist uncles, this list might be for you!
Thursday – Thanksgiving orphans (like myself – holler) can find food and friends at the following local bars. Bring something to share!
Go for the food, stay for the friends, and have a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
Friday – It’s Record Store Day at Recycled Records! They’re raffling off some great prizes to benefit the Food Bank of Northern Nevada. Go for the 2,000 new to you records and stay for the live music going all day! 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Kid friendly
Saturday – Make Him A Steak, a groove based pedal steel trio, will be releasing their debut EP titled To Eat at The Saint. There will be performances by Redfield Clipper, Team Francis, and DJ The Terrible! Details here. 21+ 8 p.m.
