Rachael and Mikie – All About That Bass

S8 E11

Welcome to this weeks Worst Little Podcast! It’s our last week of our Women’s March shows. It’s been a pleasure to bring you these four shows showcasing strong female voices in Reno music. This week we have the one and only Rachael McElhiney of Failure Machine and Buster Blue, and the legendary Mikie Shame of the Shames, Eddie and the Subtitles, and more! We’re asking these bad ass ladies a slew of questions and listening to some amazing tunes! Press play now!

Rachael and Mikie are both powerhouses with lots of history in the music scene in Reno. Rachael just got back from a small tour surrounding her appearance with Failure Machine at Treefort Music Fest in Boise. Mikie has been singing and playing bass in Reno since 2002 and continues to be a vital member of the punk scene, with her most recent shows being with Eddie and the Subtitles.

Rachel McElhinney and Mikie Shame – Rachel plays sax and ukelele. Mikie plays bass. They’re friends now so Reno should probably hold onto their hats.

Both ladies have some really cool shows coming up. Rachael is performing solo at the Loud As Folk 7 Year Anniversary festival at Pignic, Saturday April 7th. Mikie is playing with the Subtitles April 13th for Debauch-a-Reno, the Sticker Guy 25th anniversary, at Jub Jub’s! We couldn’t be more excited for those shows!

Thanks so much to Rachael and Mikie for spending their Monday night with us. I for one feel pretty honored to spend time with these rad humans!

WLP is looking for raffle donations for this May’s Marianarchy, the biannual celebration of our departed friend and patron saint of Reno Music, Marrianne Sota.

Hit any of us at the podcast up if you have a donation!

Thanks for listening, Reno! We’re pretty humbled by your ongoing support, shares, likes, and comments. If you have an event or band you would like us to promote give us a holler! If you would like to help us pay the taxes and stuff, head over to our Patreon. We are committed to recording and archiving Reno music like we have for the last 7 years but we could use your help! Even a couple of bucks is rad! We are taking next week off so Rick can chill with Jesus and the Easter Bunny, but we will be back April 9th with Alphabet Cult!

Almond Mocha Poetry – Confessions

S8 E9

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.

One Million Pounds of Bass – RV aka Motorhome music makes his Worst Little Podcast debut.

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.

Their self titled album “Almond Mocha” will be released in early 2018. Catch Kelly Proud next at the Blue Bird when she opens for former podcast guest and excellent human, Grace Hayes, and Whitney Myer! It’s Kim’s birthday and all she wants for her day is for you to go to this show!

Elisa “It comes out when I drink too much, so hand me another beer.” Garcia

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 places to get drunk live music to see in Reno. Here’s Kim’s picks:

Friday – Silver | Rigorous Proof at Shea’s let’s get Sheasted. 9PM 21+ $5/8

Saturday – Head to Shea’s for St. Patrick’s night to see Hellbound Glory/ Deadly Gallows/ Pink Awful open all day!
