Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at the Worst Little Podcast! This week we have something to be extra thankful for. Our guests this week are the phenomenally talented folks of Reno’s best Garage Soul band, Failure Machine.
Failure Machine’s current lineup is Spencer Kilpatrick on guitar and singing stuff, Clintonious Philbin on drums, and Rachael McElhiney plays bari sax and also does singing stuff.
Failure Machine plays all the cool basements and sometimes they play for the rest of us who aren’t cool enough for basements. See Failure Machine’s next show at The Saint, New Years Eve! It’s a Failure Machine, Dainesly, and Team Francis high school prom do-over! As a special treat, they’ll be performing soul covers of Misfits songs. I am really excited, guys.
Thanks so much for being our guest this week! We can’t wait to see you again!
It may be Thanksgiving weekend, but don’t fret, Reno isn’t going to let a little thing like a family holiday get in the way of our good time. If you need an excuse to flee awkward conversations and racist uncles, this list might be for you!
Thursday – Thanksgiving orphans (like myself – holler) can find food and friends at the following local bars. Bring something to share!
Go for the food, stay for the friends, and have a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
Friday – It’s Record Store Day at Recycled Records! They’re raffling off some great prizes to benefit the Food Bank of Northern Nevada. Go for the 2,000 new to you records and stay for the live music going all day! 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Kid friendly
Saturday – Make Him A Steak, a groove based pedal steel trio, will be releasing their debut EP titled To Eat at The Saint. There will be performances by Redfield Clipper, Team Francis, and DJ The Terrible! Details here. 21+ 8 p.m.
Sunday – Tommy Stinson’s (The Replacements) Cowboys in the Campfire Reno comes to 7th Street Station. This is a private house show with a very limited amount of tickets left. Click on the event link for more details! All ages. 7 p.m.
That wraps up this week’s excellent show. Thanks for listening, Reno!
Gollum in a wizard’s hat.

Valentine’s Day draws near, Reverend Rory is out of the country, and we get that loving feeling with the lads of CRUSH. Aaron, Daniel, and Jimmy talk about getting the band back together, their newer direction, and how Pharrell killed their “Happy.” Check out how they define fuzz rock with their new tunes.
At Jub Jub’s this Friday you can rock out at Bands for Bernie. The Atomiks, Roxxy Collie, Wheatstone Bridge, Mikie Shame & Nick Ramirez will all be playing. On Saturday Spectre Records will be celebrating their one year anniversary with a concert in their store. Alphabet Cult, People With Bodies, and Flores will be playing. Based on what Dogwater Dick had to say, you should be keeping an ear out for some new Murderock soon.
Catch CRUSH this Friday, February 12, at MidTown Wine Bar. Fun starts at 8 P.M., goes until 11 P.M., it is 21+, and there is no cover. That means FREE! Grab your date and get your V.D. started early.
Go hug someone, tell them they are beautiful, and let them know they are loved! Then go catch a show.
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!
Some bands are just meant to rock. Others are rippers. The Gunner’s Daughter is one of those bands. We told them that they couldn’t have a full drum kit; they told us they were bringing one anyway. We told them to play live songs live; they cut a live album for us. Tyson Vlahovich, Jake Weatherill and Scott Loring don’t fuck around when it comes to rock and roll.
Great stuff happening in Reno, including the Zombie Crawl, a Greg Allen art opening and more. Listen to the show or just get your face out from behind a computer and do it! This town is only as great as we make it. Go wash your car, go to the museum, give a dollar to a hopeless cause. It’s all the little details that make Reno a liveable place. Keep it up!
And finally congratulations to Reverend Rory – he’s finished with his graduate coursework and now just needs to sit back and let the job offers roll in!
-WARNING: NSFW The Worst Little Podcast in the World, bringing you live Reno music since 2010! (plus dick jokes... lots of dick jokes.) It is tasteless tacky and offensive. But WLP isn't just for self indulgence, no! It is a chance for us to bring the musicians you see on stage into your home, car or cubicle. We also like to highlight the Greater Reno Area and everything that makes this town rock.
