One Ton Dually – Tons Of Fun!

Welcome to literally the worst podcast in the world!

The-Worst-Little-Podcast-2017-08-28  – S7 E26 Download Link

This week we welcome Rory back to the show but not in his normal capacity as he is one of tonight’s guests! Also missing but present is Mr. Nick Ramirez. Nick and Rory, along with band-mates Spike and Jackson are here as One Ton Dually, and they’re ready with like six songs, so hold onto your tits, dear listeners. Listen up as Chewy and Kadillac Kim attempt to fill Nick and Rory’s rather large hosting shoes/chairs. We’re here talking about murders and Reno and Murderino’s!

But enough about us, let’s talk about the BAND. One Ton Dually is a rock and roll band from Reno, NV, singing songs about fast drinking and hard wimmin (yeah, they made that a word). The band describes themselves as a 4-speed good time transmission with top of the line suspension and a powerful engine under the hood. I’d take that for a ride, and you should too.

One Ton Dually has recently played at the Saint and Shea’s, which is to say they get around. If you know what I mean… Like their Facebook page to learn about new show dates and to link to their music.

While you’re waiting for One Ton Dually, be sure to check out the following awesome-sauce events in Reno.

This Friday is Foxy First Friday with host Rory Dowd, featuring Mike Metzger. Apparently Mike is well recommended by many low-life musicians who own guitars. I mean, that’s what the internet has to say and the internet is never wrong. If you want to challenge the internet, or if you just want to hear some great live music, get to Foxy Olive by 9 p.m.  21+ No cover.

Saturday punk bands U.S. Bombs / Abandon Minds / Another Damn Disappointment share the stage at Shea’s. 9 p.m. 21+

If you haven’t heard, Sunday is the new Saturday in Reno. Check out the Violence Creeps / Negative Sex / Murder Dream at the Holland Project. 8 p.m. all ages. $5

At Alturas on the DL, go have an epic good time seeing Johnny Cash tribute Cash’d Out with Cowboy Indian. 21+ 8 p.m. $15 (tickets here)

For all you Burner’s and would be Burners, Monday through Wednesday is the annual city wide party known as The Great Depressurization, presented by our friends at Fresh Bakin’. Decompress and readjust to the default world with excellent entertainment by the likes of Kelly Proud (details here), The Utility Players (details here), and big name DJ’s. The three day event takes place at The Eldorado, Silver Legacy, and Circus Circus in Reno, and MontBleu Resort in South Lake Tahoe. Click through to see the full lineup.

If you need a break from the casino traffic, go to Cargo on Tuesday for Saving Banksy / The Great Bingo Revival at Cargo. See the film, stay for the party. 21+ 8 p.m. no cover

That’s all I’ve got this week and this is where I’ll be. If you have events you think I should go to let me know! I’ll do just about anything once.

There’s no show next week thanks to Labor Day, but we’ll be back on September 11th with Riptide Bandits! Thanks for listening Reno. You’re the best.

Silence! the Musical – All Hail the Villains!

OH, Good! You’re here.

The Worst Little Podcast in the World – S6 E24

It’s time once more to have players from Good Luck MacBeth’s Fall Farcical on the show. This year, the offering is “Silence! The Musical”, an extremely irreverent spoof of 1991’s “Silence of the Lambs”. If you’ve been keeping score at home, you know that Reverend Rory is one of those players and he’s back on the show this week as a really mouthy guest. He is portraying the smarmy and douchey Dr. Chilton. Joining him are his cast mates and leading men of the show, Cody Canon (Buffalo Bill) and Ryan Kelly (Hannibal Lecter). Cody is an accomplished  acrobat, physical performer and stage-hound; while Ryan has made his mark as a powerful singer and actor on many Reno stages in recent years. Between the three of them, they are the major and minor villains of the show.

Cody’s shirt makes it look like he’s lactating. Ryan is unfazed…and inviting.

We are also joined on the show, via digital technology (a cellphone), Assistant Director, Dance Captain and the surliest of all the lambs, good friend of the show, Ashley Marie James. We have a toast with her over the phone and chat a little about the show… and a lot about other things. Unfortunately we were not able to have any music for the show on the podcast (that would be giving away too much). But our man in the past, Archivist Chewbacca comes through by way of an early 90’s Satan’s Pimp Release – the G.O.B./ Loadstar split 7″. We also have an exclusive track from Vague Choir‘s newest (unreleased!!) album! After 6 years, we still bring you the newest Reno music we can get our hands on.

If you’d like to come see “Silence! The Musical”, you can still get tickets (for now) at  http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2432180.

 

Thanks for listening!

The Worst Little Podcast – S5 E26 – Download Link

Here it is, for your enjoyment – a clip show! Featuring much of the cast of The Worst Little Podcast, past and present, in the last 200  episodes and some repeat offenders drinking copious amounts of beer and whiskey! In studio we have, your hosts, Thee Reverend Rory Dowd, Mr. Nick Ramirez, Dogwater Dick and Josh Martin, along with our small horde of guests that include Reno musicians and friends of the show: Spencer Kilpatrick, Mikie Haley, Felix Danger,  Myke Read, Rashidul Kader, Zac Curtis, Evan Humphries and a Mystery Guest!

The Bridal Photo – Episode 200

There’s clips from shows going back to the first season and as recently as this 5th one. There are … a lot. We made Rick play jukebox. He’s the only one who wasn’t inebriated and could take notes. There’s a lot of talking and conversation stepping, some rudeness, some love, you take the good, you take the bad, and there you have – AH! Who’s kidding, there’s nothing good about this show. Except the music. Always the Reno music.

The Wedding Party – Episode 200

We’d like to thank all of our friends, guests and sponsors over the years – You guys are great and we would not be doing this without you.

Thanks for listening!

John and John – It’s Like Coffee

It’s an acquired taste!

The Worst Little Podcast – S5 E25 – Season 5 Episode 25

As the 199th episode of The Worst Little Podcast in the World, this show marks the end of a chapter, and so! we return to the beginning. New half-assed and not very well planned ideas are the name of the game! Listen in for Nick’s explanation partway through the show. See if you can spot it! Our guests this week are John and John, a They Might Be Giants cover band from Reno NV that has played exactly one show prior to this recording.

John and John - a thin man and a portly man standing together

John and John

John and John is a labor of love (mostly your ears’ labor and their love of torture) brought to you by John Pat (Pat Rhea) and John Rory (Thee Reverend Rory Dowd). As a duo they have delighted at least a dozen people this year, not including the cast of this show. It’s a side project they haven’t been actually working on for very long at all, but what they lack in experience they make up for in sheer A-for-effort…ness.

You can catch John and John next at the Great Basin Geeks Con (GBGCon) at Reno Town Mall this October! It will be very exciting and far more practiced. And you should really listen to the whole show this time, especially the very very end card. Chekkit out. Rory’s performance on bass is uh-mazing.

Please join us next week for our 200th episode. Yes, seriously – don’t read me with that look on your face. We will be having a long overdue true shit-show – lots of guests and no scheduled music. We gonna have a (clip show) partay! Along with playing some of our favorite songs from over the last 5 seasons, we will also be joined by current and past cast members and Reno low-lifes luminaries, including Felix Polanski, Spencer Kilpatrick, Jeff Done, Nate Sanders, Jenny PezDeSpencer, Andy86 and more! Who knows what fun will be had? Who knows how many shots there will be? Who knows if it will even be listenable?

John and John - Rory is about to lick the face of Pat who looks perplexed and a little nervous.

They have a relationship based on trust.

Thanks for listening! (Like forreals this time.)
