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!

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.

Aaron Sion, deep thoughts

 

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.

Daniel Sion, melting hearts with a shy smile

 

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.
