Kanawha – Straight Outta Reno

S7 E38

Oh hi, I didn’t see you there. Welcome to the Worst Little Podcast. We’re sorry. This week we have Reno “doom, sludge, alterno-whatever metal” band Kanawha in the studio to fill your ears with, um, doom? Kanawha has been playing shows in Reno and Tahoe since May with their debut at Marianarchy. Catch them next at the Marianarchy Winter Ball benefiting Emily Reese this weekend at Jub Jub’s! Go hear some loud desert songs and drink for a good cause (as opposed to the other reasons you drink).

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!

 

Vague Choir – Something Something

Is there a such thing as post post rock?

The Worst Little Podcast – S4 E32

Hey everybody! It’s a fantastic week here on The Worst Little Podcast, well for most of us. Dogwater Dick  got some bad news this week – very distressing, but nothing permanent – listen in the first five minutes to find out why!?! Mark Earnest says, “If you can make it through the first seven minutes, you’re a braver man than I!” Mark is the lead singer and guitar player for Vague Choir. You remember Mark, right? Old friend of the show from the first season!

Rock Bullets and Mark Earnest

Mark is joined by his soulmates, Marcus Mayhall (bass) and Jason Thomas (drums). Contrary to what Reverend Rory thought popular belief, Marcus and Jason have never appeared on the show! Yet another Worst Little Podcast First! Which is funny since we bring you another Worst Little Podcast EXCLUSIVE! Vague Choir’s first set is some previously unrecorded (released?) songs that didn’t make it to their first album.

Speaking of albums, if you are in a local band, don’t forget to bring copies of your album to Discology, the final real record store in Reno. They want to have a large and vibrant local music section, but can’t do it until enterprising young musicians like yourselves stop by and drop off some merch! Support local music and local business all in one fell swoop!

Vague Choir does have a show happening this Saturday, October 11 at Monolith Bar, with out-of-towners Fortune Club and dj Tigerbunny. Please check these badasses out in person.

And as always, Thanks for Listening.
