The Shames

Rachael and Mikie – All About That Bass

S8 E11

Welcome to this weeks Worst Little Podcast! It’s our last week of our Women’s March shows. It’s been a pleasure to bring you these four shows showcasing strong female voices in Reno music. This week we have the one and only Rachael McElhiney of Failure Machine and Buster Blue, and the legendary Mikie Shame of the Shames, Eddie and the Subtitles, and more! We’re asking these bad ass ladies a slew of questions and listening to some amazing tunes! Press play now!

Rachael and Mikie are both powerhouses with lots of history in the music scene in Reno. Rachael just got back from a small tour surrounding her appearance with Failure Machine at Treefort Music Fest in Boise. Mikie has been singing and playing bass in Reno since 2002 and continues to be a vital member of the punk scene, with her most recent shows being with Eddie and the Subtitles.

Rachel McElhinney and Mikie Shame – Rachel plays sax and ukelele. Mikie plays bass. They’re friends now so Reno should probably hold onto their hats.

Both ladies have some really cool shows coming up. Rachael is performing solo at the Loud As Folk 7 Year Anniversary festival at Pignic, Saturday April 7th. Mikie is playing with the Subtitles April 13th for Debauch-a-Reno, the Sticker Guy 25th anniversary, at Jub Jub’s! We couldn’t be more excited for those shows!

Thanks so much to Rachael and Mikie for spending their Monday night with us. I for one feel pretty honored to spend time with these rad humans!

These tickets will sell out and we don’t want you to miss any of the fun at the Jub Jub’s Marianarchy weekend! Gremfest updates will be rolled out as soon as I have those, too.

WLP is looking for raffle donations for this May’s Marianarchy, the biannual celebration of our departed friend and patron saint of Reno Music, Marrianne Sota. This year we are raising money for our friend and Reno local Brian Smith. Brian recently suffered a heart attack and could use some community love. Hit any of us at the podcast up if you have a donation!

Thanks for listening, Reno! We’re pretty humbled by your ongoing support, shares, likes, and comments. If you have an event or band you would like us to promote give us a holler! If you would like to help us pay the taxes and stuff, head over to our Patreon. We are committed to recording and archiving Reno music like we have for the last 7 years but we could use your help! Even a couple of bucks is rad! We are taking next week off so Rick can chill with Jesus and the Easter Bunny, but we will be back April 9th with Alphabet Cult!

The Grimtones – So There Were These Bears

S8 E10

Welcome to the Worst Little Podcast. We’re live from the recent, snowy past this week for our third installment of our Women’s March shows with The Grimtones! For the first time ever our awesome intern Shrek got to hang out in studio A with Nick and Kim! Congrats on making it across the hallway, Shrek! This week we’re asking important questions like: are you still friends with her and is she going to listen to this podcast? Tune in for fat, sweaty, German brats, botched circumcisions, and punk rock battle wounds (RIP, Alise’s ankle). But MOST IMPORTANTLY, there’s some badass music from one of Reno’s strongest lady musicians.

The Grimtones spend their days cookin’ hot dogs, snorting kool-aid, fumblin’ about on yee plotter, and recording music. You can see Michelle, Carter, and young Nick, March 31st at Shea’s. They’re currently hard at work recording their new album at Dogwater Studios.

Thanks for the clap, Carter, and thanks to the Grimtones for being such excellent guests! Next week we have guest host Mikey Ramirez from The Shames joining us to interview Rachel McElhiney of Failure Machine and Alise Corbin of SWIGS for our final week of Women’s March shows!

We’ve got an odd little show here. A lot of fun though. Mikie and Penny from The Shames hang out with us and talk a lot about their new project – Eddie and the Subtitles, a new version of a classic band. You can get a taste of what they sound like with some unreleased raw tracks featuring Mikie, Penny, Eddie and Spencer Benenavides.

Penny!

We also talk with Mikie and Chewie about sleepwalking. There was a whole show around this that didn’t happen, but we’ve got some funny stories.

Mikie From The Shames and Eddie and the Subtitles, Reno NV punk rock

Mikie!

Well, I’ve got a plane to catch, but we love you. Enjoy your holiday and be safe.

THANKS for listening.

“Check out THIS guy!”

We got the SHA-ames! We got the SHA-ames! We got The Shames! We’ve teased you with it for over two years and it’s finally happened! We were finally able to pin down Penny Cillin and Mikie Shame, and they did not disappoint. It is as awesome – awesomer! – as you think it should be. Unfortunately, Shames drummer Cyril was unavailable for the show. The girls came in with a great musical selection – six or seven songs, including a Worst Little Podcast Exclusive first listen to a new Shames song!

Mikie Shame looking pretty

Sweet Mikie

At the top of the show we have a chance to talk with Reno native and LA-based comedian David Huntsberger. David is a really funny guy, appearing in comedy clubs nationally and on the podcast “Professor Blastoff“. His latest CD, Explosion Land is available on his website and iTunes. David will be appearing at the Reno Tahoe Comedy Club in the Pioneer Underground June 7 & 8. Go out this weekend and have a laugh with someone from this town who got out and made good!
