Thankfully we’re not burning and we’re not flooding! Our hearts go out to everyone affected by the recent natural disasters. We love you. This week we’re joined by JUST Rory and Rick because they told me not to come in. It’s okay because I really *was* scissoring the drummer from SWIGS. You guys were all spot on. ANYWAY! Y’all are in for some great instrumental surf punk, some talk about old naked Satanists, and jokes about me (Kadillac Kim, in case you’re not following along) hooking up with our podcast guests! We even have new interns to make fun of! Don’t worry guys, you too can be like me with enough ambition and a vagina… oh wait. As fun as it is to talk about incest and Satanism, we actually have a band here, so let’s get into some music.
Riptide Bandits have been around for a “really long time”, according to band members. They are so legendary they don’t even need to know when they formed. It is as if they always existed. They might be vampires.
Riptide Bandits is Leif, Grouch, Andy, and Jonathan. Keep an eye out for upcoming shows at Headquarters Bar in October then at Marianarchy! You can see Jonathan with his other band, SWIGS, on September 22nd at Alturas on the DL! They join The Habituals for an End of Summer Tiki Party. Let’s make tiki torches great again!

Welcome to the Worst Little Podcast in the World! This week we’re hella excited to bring you Reno surf punk band SWIGS! Listen up for some serious on-air flirtation and for songs about Mario Kart and Sandwiches! Let’s get into the music.
SWIGS was formed in Reno this year by guitarist David Hadel, bassist Jonathan Daniel, and drummer Alise Corbin. Dave has been busy promoting Reno’s music scene with his own show, All Independent Reno Podcast, Jonathan is a veteran of the Reno music scene, playing for several years with Reno band Riptide Bandits, and Alise has been playing percussion in Reno and Carson since she was a kid. Together these Reno natives musical backgrounds led them to form one of Reno’s most high energy, fun new acts.
SWIGS recently performed at the Saint, playing with Riptide Bandits and Basement Tapes. You can see their next show at Whiskey Dick’s Saloon in Tahoe in August. SWIGS will also be hitting the road with Los Pistoleros very soon so be sure to like and follow them on Facebook to stay updated on their whereabouts. And check out their Bandcamp page to preview two songs from their upcoming EP!
