Last to Leave – Still Hanging On

And away we go!

The Worst Little Podcast – S5 E32 – Download Link

Despite playing actively in Reno the entire time we have not been broadcasting, Last to Leave is a whole new side of the scene that the podcast has missed. Skye Evans and Ken Shepherd join us and play some jaw-droppingly awesome music this week. The music is complex and full-bodied, toe-tapping and fun; the lyrics are achingly depressing – even on the ‘happy’ songs. Skye Evans (founder of the band and literally the last to leave Last to Leave) is graduating shortly and will be leaving Reno for northern climes. Bittersweet it is, to see him go, but we wish him well in the future!

Ken Shepherd on the other hand can’t get out of Reno if he tried. Shepard is currently still the bassist for The Whitebulbs and also Busking by Moonlight, a fantastic new indie blues act that you’ll be able to catch at the upcoming OffBeat Festival – this very weekend! You’ll be able to catch Last to Leave’s FINAL PERFORMANCE (that may or may not be true) at the Holland Project on November 17th.

We are all really excited about the OffBeat Festival. If you haven’t heard by now, click the link and listen on the show – this event will be insanely awesome. In order to make it so, legendary Phat Couch will be playing at Jub Jub’s on Friday night, along with Nick Ramirez, Forrest Day, Plastic Caves and Los Pistoleros! And all of this madness will be hosted by the Rev! And that’s just ONE SHOW on ONE NIGHT! This is a 4-day festival with 90+ bands in 13+ venues. We are lucky enough to have Steve Foht, singer for Phat Couch and longtime friend of Nicky visit us on the show. Though currently thriving in Peru, IN as the owner of Boondocks Food & Spirits, Fot was once one of the giants of the Reno music scene, way back in the nineteen-nineties! It’s a pleasure to have him on and will be great to rock out this weekend.

Anyway, get the details in the link or on the show. I’ll see you there.

Thanks for Listening.

Resistance – Young Rippers

It’s a little wacky this week, all over.

The Worst Little Podcast – S5 E31 – Download link

The metal machinists, Resistance, are in the studio this week. Young dudes with a heavy sound that truly turns some of us around on this whole metal thing. Kenner Casteel-Snider (Vocals), Levi Bower (Drums), Cody Sprague (Guitar), Eric Terry (Guitar) and Elijah Frandsen (Bass) are the crew of Resistance. They’ve been playing with a lot of great acts in town over the last couple of years and are building a solid following. They also like dick jokes. and gay jokes. Lots and lots of dick up in here this week.

We take a call at the top of the show to chat with Alon Burton of our favorite local boys in the big city heroes, Merkin! Merkin is coming back to Reno fot a two night limited engagement during the OffBeat Festival, happening all over Reno Nov 5-8. This is an amazing event with 13 venues and dozens of acts, local and regional. Your favorite local bands and performers will be out in force rocking hard until late late night. If you haven’t already purchased your all-access wristbands, you will want to ASAP. You really don’t want to miss it.

It’s going to be an exciting Halloween weekend in Reno this year. Lots of great shows all weekend! Have fun and don’t do anything we wouldn’t…. nevermind, scratch that. Have fun!

And thanks for Listening!
