Hello and Welcome to the Worst Little Podcast! Kim, Nick, Dogwater Dick *and* our favorite Production Assistant, Ian, are in the studio this week with the lovely Gina Rose! There’s also a surprise guest with us this week who we NEVER thought we’d get on the show. Press play to find out who it is!

Gina Rose is a singer-songwriter from Reno, Nevada. She’s been described as young, warm, and wise with a knack for writing melancholic and memorable tunes. I’d say that’s all true. Gina’s next show is at Piper’s Opera House in Virginia City, October 17th, for a special edition of Loud As Folk. Also playing Piper’s are friends of the show Outlaw Kindred, So Sol, Huckleberry Road, and Greg Gilmore. Thanks to Gina and Andrew for being on the show. We had a blast!

Next week we’re back with Eddie and the Subtitles! Thanks for listening!

Spencer has been playing as JUST IN-Beaver for about two years. When Spencer isn’t playing with his other band, A Wormhole Could Kill Us All, he keeps audiences laughing nervously while he sings us acoustic songs about boobs and bath salts. Lucca G also plays in A Wormhole Could Kill us All, as well as Reno’s most sexual band, Grimedog. Click through to follow all the bands on Facebook and learn where to see them next!

Also here is the Rhino! He’s been a DJ in Reno since forever and recently he’s parlayed that career into the charity work he is here talking with us about this week. If you’re not caught up, Rhino has been working on bringing his Golden Gate art car and Silent Disco to sick kids everywhere by touring to children’s hospitals. The Rhino is for the children, y’all. We’re happy to get the word out about his art car land speed record and fundraising activities for this amazing project. We will keep our listeners updated about future events!

Hello! Welcome to this week’s Worst Little Podcast! We’re stoked AF to welcome first timers to the show, skate punks Knocked Down! They brought some high energy tunes and some hilarious quiz answers. Kim was MIA due to a party injury, so Rick, Rory, and Nick had to pick up the slack. We learn a ton about the dudes in the band and hear some rad tunes, including some brand new songs from their upcoming full length album. This is punk rock, folks. 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!

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!
