Oh hi, I didn’t see you there! Welcome to the Worst Little Podcast. Your hosts Nick, Kadillac Kim, and Dogwater Dick are here with some fresh faces to the Reno music scene, 33 Black. This week’s podcast has gone country! Yeehaw! Listen up for some new music from these up-and-comers, along with a heavy dose of inappropriate banter. Like we do.
33 Black was formed back in the day (they never got around to telling us which day exactly) when Jeb and Travis, who were high school
sweethearts friends, met Spencer on the internet. But unlike most Craigslist hookups, this one lasted.
Thank’s to 33 Black for being Kim’s reason to get drunk this week! Their next show is in Chico on June 14th but look for local shows soon. As always, stay tuned to the Worst Little Podcast for news about the band, and check them out on iTunes to listen to their two EPs that are out now. We will be following 33 Black with interest and we can’t wait to see where these guys go!

If you’re a fan of the show please consider donating to our Patreon so we can reimburse Rick for all he does for Reno music. He’s doing the lords work recording and archiving all this local music for y’all for free, so throw a little money his way. Rick and Jesus are homies so if you help Rick he’ll put a good word in for you. Hell knows we could all use all the help we can get in that area… It has been an absolute pleasure, as always, Reno. Tune in next week for local singer-songwriter Joni Blinman. Remember, life is short and we love you.
Podcasting live from the recent, sweaty past, we’re bringing you the power trio from Carson, our friends Blunderbusst! It has been six whole years since they have graced our humble studio and they’re bringing a heavy dose of nostalgia and kick ass tunes. This week we’re talking clown Elvis’s, hamburger hands, and sweet, sweet practice holes! Press play for this podcast EXCLUSIVE from Blunderbusst!
There were no interns this week so Kim had to do all the heavy lifting. And by heavy lifting I mean beers and conversation! Kim’s adventures this week consisted of clowning around with a clown Elvis impersonator and turning 35! Here’s proof that Clownvis exists! Come back, Clownvis!
Blunderbusst is Jen Scaffidi, Carolyn Gates, and Carson Cessna. We’re waiting with baited breath for upcoming show dates. Worst Little Podcast Listeners will be some of the first in the know. We hear there might be some stuff happening at Foxy Olive and St. James Infirmary soon! We loved having these three on the show again. Let’s hope it’s not another six years for the next time.
This last week was pretty epic, even by Reno standards, and next week will be more of the same! Here are Kim’s picks:
Thursday – The Ghost Town Rebellion. If you’re looking for some crazy outlaw Americana, Pignic is where you’ll find it. 21+ 8 PM As always at Pignic, no cover!
Friday – Hubcap Stealers/Drag Me Under/Pink Awful at Shea’s 21+ 9PM $6

Thanks so much to this weeks guests and for all of our listeners! We appreciate you! Let’s also take a moment to wish Jen a happy birthday! We’re all getting older but Jen just stays the same age. We’ll see you next week for 33 Black!
Congrats on stumbling upon our humble little podcast! This week our hosts sat down with the Adorables to talk some utter nonsense and hear some really great political folk punk.
The Adorables are a bit of a Reno super-group. All three members have been involved in the Reno music scene for years, with impressive stints in some of Reno’s finest rock bands like Stabby Unicorn, Pinky Polanski and Liver Scars (among others!). The Adorables are playing Marianarchy for the first time this December.

Dave has been busy promoting Reno’s music scene with his own show, All Independent Reno Podcast, Jonathan is a veteran of the Reno music scene, playing for several years with Reno band Riptide Bandits, and Alise has been playing percussion in Reno and Carson since she was a kid. Together these Reno natives musical backgrounds led them to form one of Reno’s most high energy, fun new acts.
SWIGS recently performed at the Saint, playing with Riptide Bandits and Basement Tapes. You can see their next show at Whiskey Dick’s Saloon in Tahoe in August. SWIGS will also be hitting the road with Los Pistoleros very soon so be sure to like and follow them on Facebook to stay updated on their whereabouts.
