Hello! Welcome to the award winning (I’m going to milk that for all it’s worth) Worst Little Podcast! It’s been a couple of weeks since our last show and we’re a little rusty, but we’re back and excited to welcome Outlaw Kindred to the podcast for the first time. We’ve got some crazy stories and even crazier banjo music. This is a good one, folks, so press play!
Outlaw Kindred is an Outlaw Folk/Grass band. Featuring Olaf Vali Duna on Banjo and Josiah Knight on Guitar. Playing Country Barn Stomping Hay Burners! The two met years ago in Northern California, before the beards! It’s safe to say they’re the only two people in Reno who know what each others faces actually look like. They’re one of Reno’s most solid duo’s and this girls favorite. Be sure to catch them in Reno next during Off Beat Music Fest, happening November 8th through 10th. We’ll let you know exact dates and times soon!
This week make sure to get out and do something! Here’s where we’ll be. Okay, here’s where your resident party girl, Kadillac Kim will be:

It’s good to have the whole gang together! We have a full cast this week with New Girl and Chewie in the studio with us. Gardnerville native and singer/songwriter Elspeth Summers made the drive up to join us on the show this week. She plays some fantastic originals, making us all swoon over her sultry twang and smooth strum.
We had a really fun episode, although I feel like we should apologize to Elspeth for having to put up with us all yammering away about ourselves and barely letting her get an extra word in. You can check her out at her website, www.elspethsummers.com or on her Facebook page. She has a few songs available online and will have an EP out very soon. I for one can’t wait to hear her with a full band, but for now you get a fun-size dose of just her and a guitar.
We’ve got Marianarchy on the horizon, but are laying pretty low ourselves. If you’re looking for something to do, there’s the Biggest Little Theater Festival at Bruka or RMP Open Mic at Wildflower Village or KARMA, Stabby Unicorn, Clementine’s Knight, Small Drawings, and Broken Lungs at Jub Jub’s or any number of other things, mang! Reno has great stuff going on!
Thanks for listening…
Another seamless performance!
Drummers? They Don’t need no stinking drummer – they’s the Six Mile Station and they’ve got a ton of strings! Six Mile Station is prety killer. Spike McGuire on guitar and vocals, Tyson Schroeder on the stand up bass and backing vocals, Alán Burtón on mandolin and vocals, and Nathan Carter on the fiddle, all to kick your ASS with folk music. When it comes to catchy and harmony, they don’t fuck around. They play three songs for us and sneak a peek at a track from their new album.
In other news, comedian Justin Rupple will be returning to the Reno Tahoe Comedy Club in the Pioneer Underground this weekend. Please check him out – funny guy, funny impressions, funny lookin’. Chewie is with us again, but relegated to the back room because of the awesome of Six Mile Station. The Rev is clueless, Nick the voice of reason, and Dogwater Dick: still gay.
We had a lot of fun this week. Thanks for listening!
