Almond Mocha Poetry – Confessions

S8 E9

Hello again, and welcome to the Worst Little Podcast in the world! This week Almond Mocha Music and poet extraordinaire, Elisa Garcia joined us on the show. Listen up as Kim, Kelly, and Elisa take over Dogwater Studios (RV, Rory, Nick, and Dogwater Dick are here too). We’re steering the ship now, and we’ve got beer. Look out. We’ve got Rory’s shitty old poems, Almond Mocha’s sexy chill vibes, and sexy raindrops galore for the lovely Elisa.

One Million Pounds of Bass – RV aka Motorhome music makes his Worst Little Podcast debut.

Almond Mocha Music is RV, aka Motorhome Music, and Kelly Proud. They describe themselves as fun, exciting, dancey enough to get your feet tapping but still appropriately layers over conversation on a long drive or over a cup of coffee. This new musical journey between these two musicians is a wonderful departure from the norm. Stitch and @motorhomemusic shatter musical expectations with their collaboration, Almond Mocha. Described as “uplifting” and “hopeful music” this step outside of either of their creative norms produces a sound consistently compared to The Postal Service, The Album Leaf and Massive Attack.

Their self titled album “Almond Mocha” will be released in early 2018. Catch Kelly Proud next at the Blue Bird when she opens for former podcast guest and excellent human, Grace Hayes, and Whitney Myer! It’s Kim’s birthday and all she wants for her day is for you to go to this show!

Elisa “It comes out when I drink too much, so hand me another beer.” Garcia

Reno’s slam queen, Elisa, works with the Holland Project producing weekly all ages open poetry nights and produces the quarterly adult themed poetry night, LIT at Night. See the next installment of LIT at Night April 21st at Headquarters Bar.

This weekend is St. Patrick’s day, and as always there’s no shortage of places to get drunk live music to see in Reno. Here’s Kim’s picks:

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!

Prince Robot – Broken Things

The Worst Little Podcast – S7 E5 – Download Link

This week’s podcast welcomes self-described hot trash from the desert, Prince Robot. With a no-fucks-given playing style and old-skool punk rock tendencies, these (mostly) Reno natives are cutting a swath across the Reno underground music scene.

Jeff King – Voted most likely to disappoint Christina Ricci in bed.

Prince Robot is playing at one of Reno’s most infamous venues, Shea’s Tavern, on March 26th. Be sure to catch them along with Reno favorites Boss’ Daughter and New York’s own American Pinup that night. In the meantime catch them here talking about sex (I would disappoint Christina Ricci in bed too, Jeff) drugs, rock and roll, and my favorite topic, Rory’s sore wrists.

Channeling ginger rage into the mic is Lynne Carpenter.

Alex Alcantar of Prince Robot. Master of rocket science guitar wizardry.

 

Thanks for Listening!
