Heyo, Reno! At first I wasn’t in the mood to write this blog but I’ve had like half a bottle of wine and I’ve been watching videos of baby goats in pajamas so…. let’s do this! *two hours later* Do you guys even know how many cute baby animal compilations there are on the internet? Do you?! I thought the internet was for porn and publishing terrible music podcasts. I was wrong. Seriously, check out these baby owls. I mean come on…
ANYWAY! I’m here to do the thing with Qarin (pronounced car-in) this week! These guys were so talented and entertaining. Listen up for deviants, dick jokes, and of course, METAL.
Qarin is made up of Diva – Vocals, Yo-yo – Vocals/Bass, Dizzle – Guitar, Sancho – Guitar, and Poundcake – Percussion.
Thanks a bunch for being with us this week, Qarin. You guys are the real deal and you’re also super funny and hella nice. I hope I’m not ruining your reputations right now or anything. MAKE SURE you go to Jub Jub’s Friday night to see Qarin’s first show since some major shit went down with the band. Celebrate, wear a costume, and save a few bucks for a beer! I’ll leave you with an eloquent toast from the band, “we’ll fuck ’em standing, we’ll fuck ’em lying, if they had wings we’d fuck ’em flying, and when she’s dead and long forgotten, we’ll dig her up and fuck her rotten. Sorry, not sorry.
Holy Snopes, this next week is packed with awesome shit, Reno. Here’s your to-do list. Go do a thing. Then tell me about it. Share a photo to the Worst Little Podcast page or just send it to me, Kadillac Kim, on Facebook. I’ll give you a prize or a cookie, and Adam (the bass player) will give you a free handy.
