Enslave the Creation – Full House, But No Full Deck

Smile while your face melts, nancy!

The Worst Little Podcast – 2015 04 13 – Download Link

Wow! This episode is tight like your mom money clip! We welcome Enslave the Creation, a Reno progressive death metal band, to the show. It’s literally what happens when you combine prog rock and deathmetal.

Eric Marks, smiling big, with an illustrated rainbow heart drawn around the image.

Teen Heartthrob, Eric!

They come in all nice and congenial and not too smelly, then proceed to lay down enormous face-melting metal! Structured, clean, practiced and blazing. Holy fuckballs, Batman! “Are you ready for brutality?” was actually asked of us during the show. We were not entirely ready – and all this was sans drummer and vocals! You can listen to more of their music at the Enslave the Creation’s reverbnation page. (For you Reno-music-philes, they play in the same league as Cranium.)

Chris Portugal looking tough in a full beard.

Wut.

Enslave the Creation is Eric Marks, Mike Stewart,  Chris Portugal, and Jared Klein. Klien was unable to make it on account of being a loser living in Sacramento, but they muddle on with an excellent track of him nailing all of their songs. They are perpetually auditioning for a lead singer. They’ve never  found quite the right match in 5 YEARS of playing shows. If you think you’ve got what it takes, hit them up.

Mike Stewart, wide eyed and staring right at the camera.

No, Mike, only you can hear THOSE voices.

Also in studio are Cameron Shirey, Matt Biondi, Ryan Kelly and Bill Ware,  a group of Reno actors, writers and directors who have collaborated in a short film project called “Battle of the Band”. It’s about a contest with only one contestant, but not like you think. Primary shooting begins in May With an expected showing of the film in July at the Good Luck Macbeth theater.

“We’re gonna be stars, Ma!”

Bill found Jesus. He brought the beer.

As always, Thanks for Listening!

A Happy New Year to YE!

The Worst Little Podcast – S4 E42 – Download Link

It’s good to be back! We started to miss you! Opening up the new year and helping us close down the old season, THE ENUCLEATORS join us for some solid facemelting. Dan Steinmetz, Kris Prater and Jimmie Jones make up this new band full of old dogs.

Kris Prater from The Enucleators smiling enthusiastically

Excited Kris

While they’ve only been around for a few months, The Enucleators have consistently impressed audiences every time they play. They have a tight chemistry and were a very insightful bunch of guys to chat with. They are looking to get in some studio time and put down the catalog of music they already have down.

Reverend Rory and Nick are also positively ELATED to announce that they have been cast in “Tooth of Crime: Second Dance“, a theatrical musical experience by Sam Shepard. Described as “Reno’s Environmental Rock Experience of the Year” and “the most dangerous play you’ll See this year”, “Tooth of Crime” is brought to you by Jub Jub World Productions, directed by Dave Richards and will be staged in the showroom. Other cast members include Lew Zaumeyer, Jill Marlene, Andy Luna, Scott Dundas and John Lutz; Live music from Chris Fox, Dave Masud and Jeff Done ; the crew also features other Reno theater heavyweights. 10 shows, 100 seats, so viewing is limited. Check out the Facebook site for details.

So to sum up – Happy Happy; go see The Enucleators; check out “Tooth of Crime”; shake Reno up. Oh! and come to Studio on 4th tonight for the Happy Birthday David Bowie event for a lot of great covers, including The Rev’s version of “Modern Love”.

Thanks for Listening.

Evil Dead: The Musical – Vaude Villan

Gimme some sugar, baby….

The Worst Little Podcast – S4 E31

It’s finally October – our favorite time of year! The days shorten and cool and thoughts turn to the warm glowing eyes of demons and monsters. It’s the spooky time! To celebrate this fact, Vaude Villain Entertainment has brought the second greatest musical adventure known to man to a Reno Stage. From Vaude Villain’s production of Evil Dead: The Musical we have co-directors John Frederick and Ashley Marie James (an Evil Tree) and Jeff Bentley (Jake) in the studio to talk about the show and Reno theater!

John and Ash, presented without comment.

We also take a call from Evan Buckley Harris, the production’s Ash, while he was on the road. That was fun and totally not awkward at all! The cast is a fun tight knit group who really kill the performance. Full disclosure: I’m also a part of Vaude Villain Entertainment and, as you are likely aware of, a producer of this show. Other than sitting in on a voice rehearsal and seeing a couple rehearsal short videos of movement rehearsals, I hadn’t seen this production at all until opening night and it. Was. A. BLAST. We’ve had sold out shows so far and you should really do yourself a favor and follow the link and get yourself presale tickets – this is a hot ticket right now in the Reno nightlife scene.

It’s a great episode and an even better show. Please check them out!

Thanks For Listening.
