Adam Springob joins us this week as a solo artist. He’s been stepping out from above Greg Gilmore’s very small shadow and showcasing his own singing and songwriting. It’s really good stuff. Unfortunately, you won’t hear it!!!! He brought a damn band with him this week. Actually – he brought TWO bands with him to make one giNORmous band called …. Something Or Other. Joining him in the studio are Michelle Belle (guitar – Scarlet Presence), Carter Stellon (drums – Scarlet Presence), Samantha Gates (fiddle), and Greg Gilmore (bass – Kanes NOT Merkin – lets be clear about this: Greg is not in The Merkins. He’s not that good.)
We had a really fun time with these guys – so much fun that Nick and The Rev had to take off before the show was done!!! They’re not even sure what happens yet!!! There is a lot of talking, yelling and chaos – more than usual – really. I’m supposed to take down notes and tease it out here, but I seem to have neglected to do that this week, although there is a really awesome drawing of a polar bear holding a surfboard next to the note “Sam seems so nice – why these a-holes?”.
SO, normally I tell you about the picks for this weekend, right? Well, this week, there is only one show you should concern yourself with (despite what Adam says on the show – srsly, fuck that guy): MARIANARCHY 2013: A BENEFIT FOR DALE KELLAMS!!! Two days, 35 acts, raffles, BBQ, silent auction, monkey juice, and lots of shenanigans!!!! Get your asses to Jub Jub’s Thirst Parlor this weekend, May 17 & 18! starts at 3pm on Friday, 2pm on Saturday!
There will also be a Remembering Dale Kellams show at Jub’s Thursday night with his brother, Doug’s band. Please come down for old footage and good friends. All proceeds of this weekend will go to support his widder and orphan, Heidi and Kenobi.

They do it down and dirty. Who? The Kanes, that’s who! On this week’s episode, Greg Gilmore and Adam Springob of The Kanes come in and play us a few songs off of their upcoming album, “Black Magic”. Drummer Mike Orris had better things to do, so we got to hear Greg and Adam duel with guitars. These guys are always fun – if you can decipher what we’re saying when we’re all talking over each other.
I’m a little short on time myself, so I’m gonna give it to you down and dirty as well. The conversations get weird; Greg and Adam really blow it on the quiz; Nick steps up to the plate; Chewie’s still out; Rick and Rory are golden, as always. No-call, no-show on the part of both the Vampirates and The Shames. But at least the shames had a good excuse – they were somewhere near the border south of Phoenix and a lot of police/emergency band radio was making their cell phone reception spotty. We look forward to hearing from them next week? If nothing else, we’ll get a tour recap when they’re on the show in June (yes, really, this time).
Other than that – it’s the regular show. Hope you have a great week and patronize all your local venues and performers and artists! Stop by Reno Computer Fix for a great deal! (And Nick’s password is dubious at best – but I dare you to go in there and tell them)
Thanks for listening!
Lies and mendacity!!!!
First, I’m on the defensive. I want to clear something up – I did not call in well! Rick was trying to call in sick and we had a last-minute cancellation, so I rearranged my life. Then Nick calls and says we’re still doing the show. Bitches be trippin! I was fully prepared to do the show this week, SERIOUSLY! Then life happened… and I hung out with my kid and learned a song on the GEEtar – sue me. OK, enough rationalization and onto the show.
In addition to the regular weekend recap, we find out that Chewie has a stalker in his neighborhood, cabs will not stop to pick up Felix, Nick is temporarily hooked on Vicodin and Rick sat around the house and polished his… microphone, all alone. Fun and exciting! Shocker alert – Felix got really drunk and blacked out last weekend after a show!! Wow! It’s a fun show, despite being sans Reverend. Chewie busts out some old tracks from the Vault and we get to hear a little music from Reno greats Cranium, M.C. Gob, The Line, and War Maggots.
Lots of great stuff happening around town this week. Thursday night, Melvin Makes Machineguns are headlining the Summer Music Series at the Alley. Friday night we’ve got Boot to the Kool , Merkin, The Kanes, Miracle Drugs, and The Firebombing at The Knit; Antique Scream, The Shames, and Walk of Shame at Lincoln Lounge; and Black Sheep of Kali, Glacier and The Harvest and The Hunt at Shea’s. Saturday you can find CRUSH and Smiley Mikey at Sidelines; and the Blitzkreig Pop dance party with DJ Endif and Hyperkarma at The Biggest Little City Club.
Don’t forget to come on out to support your open mics all across the city EVERY night of the week. I of course am going to remind you of the Strega Sunday night Open Mic and THE WORST LITTLE OPEN MIC IN RENO at Jub Jub’s on Monday, brought to you by US here at WLP. THis week’s host is the Madman, Matty Waage… and as always, Nick and Rory and Chewie will all be in attendance for some amount of time.
Anyway, thanks for listening!
Shit just got REALS, yo!
Finally, finally, finally! We got The Kanes in the studio!! Well, 2/3 of them anyway – Mick was just too cool for school and couldn’t make it, but Adam Springob and Greg Gilmore came in with their guitars and laid down some sweet sweet honey for your ears – including *ahem* another worldwide exclusve first-listen here on the Worst Little Podcast. Yeah. We kewl like dat. These guys are one of the most exciting bands in town, hands down. I love watching them play. This acoustic set they play for us, while a little more laid back, is still pretty powerful and pretty pretty pretty. We talk about their potential shows in the future and some of the shows they’ve played htis summer – and then the quiz. The Quiz! We have our first ever DISQUALIFICATION! Stick around and listen to that!
I also want to take a moment out to mention Kelly ‘Stitch’ Proud, a local performer and friend of the show. Last week, Kelly was hospitalized for an unknown ailment and is currently on a vantilator to breathe for her and a paralytic drip. She is literally fighting for her life right now and not out of the woods yet. Since she is a performer and member of the service industry, she doesn’t have health insurance or much to fall back on when she doesn’t work. If you have the inclination, please visit the link above to make a donation. A singer, musician and actor, Kelly was also the emcee for the Midnight Minx review. They have an upcoming show this thursday at Cargo inside CommRow, RAW Artists Reno: Radiate. Proceeds from tickets bought through Midnight Minx will go to support kelly and pay her bills while she is laid up and recovering. Also, after the show, there will be a benefit party for her at Home inside Rise downtown. All donations in lieu of cover will go to benefit Stitch and there are 241 Industry night drink specials. Please go to an event and help us support this great member of our performing arts community!
And, yes, I know I’m going to hell for some of the jokes I made about it, but Stitch would approve. Heh.
I also want to mention that as of this week, The Worst Little Podcast in the World has taken over the open mic at Jub Jub’s Thirst Parlor! That’s right we are now the proud owners of one Worst Little Open Mic!!! Come on down and jam with us every monday night at 9:30-ish. Bands, want some exposure and maybe get booked on the podcast or the bar? Come on down, set up yer shit and play for us!
Thanks for listening!
