Hey, did you know we actually still do a show?
Hey boys and girls!!! Did you miss us? We missed you!!! We all had a great vacation this past August and are ready to hit the back third of the year with some awesome shows! Fist up to bat, we have the Infecto Skeletons, recent staple of the ReNO punk rock music market. These guys were out there a lot this spring and summer, smashing old skool punk rock into audience’s ears. Infecto Skeletons even just got off of a So-Cal mini-tour, branching out from Mother Reno.
We had a good time with them at the house and on the show. Maybe went a little overboard on the pre-party… we talked too much and then didn’t have anything to say on the show that was coherent. Go figure! On THIS show? But the boys in Infecto Skeletons put down some killer tracks that had me wishing I was drunk and at Shea’s with Felix or something, so I could blindly and drunkenly crash around the room to their dulcet tones.
Infecto Skeletons are Justin Minyard (vocals), Andrew Hockenberry (drums), Rash Kader (bass) and Mike Read (guitar). Aside from being a lot of fun to hang out with andd playing some great Reno punk rock music, they … uh… well, that’s about it really. I didn’t get that far in the interview – got distracted by the Worst Little Quiz and the epic battle for Last Place.
If you’re looking for something fun to do this weekend, we have really only two events we want to draw your attention to (Infecto Skeletons is playing at neither of them). First is on Friday at the Public House – Lend Jimi Damone a Hand – more info on the event to help Jimi Damone who recently suffered a debilitating accident in the show and on the event page. You can also donate to the cause at the Jimi Damone GiveForward page, where they have raised nearly 1/3 of their goal.
Also Sunday, please join Nick Ramirez at the Artist’s Lofts for a fundraiser for his cat, Loopy Lupe – listen and read, people, listen and read.
And don’t forget the Blazing Mics every Monday at Jub Jub’s Thirst Parlor, brought to you by the Worst Little Podcast!
As always, my friends, Thanks For Listening – see you next week!
And, we’re back!
Hey, Everybody! Thanks for being patient with us while on our vacation.
This week, we have on Prescription, a great Reno band that’s been around for about a year. Reverend Rory caught them a few times and knew they HAD to be on the show. Nick and Dick were dutifully impressed. Their layered, raw wall of sound is like unto a natural force, like a tidal wave. Their sound is pretty structured, despite the chaos around them.
The guys in the band – Donovan, Jarren, Josh, Justin and Shane – were totally pro too. Despite the heat and some technical glitches, they showed up with gear, on time, and ready to rock. They hammered down four songs that will get stuck in your head. You have plenty of chances to check out Prescription. Lincoln Lounge on 8/9 with the Vague Choir; The Urban Roots Farm Brew-grass festival on 8/10, in Nevada City on 8/24 and at Moonrocks on 8/30.
Part of our difficulties was that this was our first week without Executive Fluffer, Bryce who is
joining the Navy to be surrounded by seamen leaving us for better things. We wish him well and curse him for not sticking around hope he comes back to visit when he can.
We also have a quick phoner with Reno comedian, Jenny PezDeSpencer, at the top of the show – for her show that opens tonight! Chekkitout!
I hate to tell you this, but August is going to be a little spotty too. We’re just going to record every other week, due to scheduling and the fucking heat! ugh! That studio is a nightmare – we can’t run the AC, cause it makes a buzzing noise. But have no fear, we will be putting up content on the weeks off – maybe footage from open mics or a show – you’ll just have to see what Nick and I get up to this month!
Don’t forget to check out the Rocky Horror Artown Extravaganza with Pinky Polanski and Thee Reverend Rory Dowd at Cargo in Whitney Peak (formerly CommRow). Also – Blazing Mics every week at Jub Jub’s!
As always, Thanks for Listening!
Thanks for bearing with us in the week off – Reverend Rory pulled a “Don Geronimo” and fell off the stage at Jub Jub’s during Marianarchy 2013, and the show left us all exhausted and spent. It was a killer time and we want to personally thank everyone that came out to the show that weekend. We would not be able to do this for the last nine years without your support. We raised a bit more than $3,100 this year! Thank you, thank you, thank you, from all of us at WLP and the family of Dale Kellams.
This week, we’ve got some fast drinking and hard partying Reno rockers in the studio. The Hellbilly Bandits got in touch with us and then proceeded to invade the studio. Srsly – they brought an entourage and everything (note to future guests – NO!). It was a bit of madness at the Chez Dogwater this week, but totally worth it. The Hellbilly Bandits are cusséd, dirty shitkickers and they’ve got the music to prove it!
There is a tearful reunion of Wally and Chewbacca that you don’t want to miss. These childhood buddies hadn’t seen each other in years and have a touching, tender moment on the show. Have a hanky ready.
Really though – they are a blast. The music is killer, about topics near and dear to Reno, like hookers and meth! It’s a boot to the face and a smack on the ass. You do not want to miss them live. Their next show is this Friday at Davidson’s Distillery – where Wally runs the open mic on Mondays.
Coming up this weekend, plesase come on out to Jub’s for the Damntrack fundraiser. Speical appearances by Spike and jackson, Lighter Theif, Sam Ashlock and many more!
Thanks again to Wally, Nathan, Bill and Bobby from the Hellbilly Bandits! We had a great time andd hope you do too.
Thanks for listening!
“It’s not the guest’s fault – it’s all mine.” – Reverend Rory
WARNING: I want to start this post with a warning. I, Reverend Rory Dowd, am a big bucket of fail this week. Right out of the gate, I faceplant into a brick wall, every joke I tell and bit of information I say in the first 30 min of the show is wrong wrong wrong WRONG! I apologize in advance. But I was SAVED-uh! Josiah Knight, Reno singer/songwriter, comes in and plays some really killer tunes for us, picking the show right back up. This guy is a new-ish friend to all of us (within the last 365, at least), and a welcome addition to our music scene.
We are also saved early on in the show by a fun interview with Dustin Kaufman of the Weediculous Comedy Tour. He and three other LA area comics are travelling around the country in a minivan, filming a documentary about their tour and the state of marijuana culture in the US today. Many of their stops are in dispensaries and cafes, but here in Reno – we got them coming down to the Shea’s Tavern!! Thursday night, 5/9 (today for most of you) at 9pm he and his cohort will be kicking it off – filming it live for a documentary that should be up on Netflix … at some point. (As we know from Nowhere Nevada, a movie is only finished when it’s done!) Opening up for them are Reno Comedians, Jenny PezDeSpencer and Brandon Lara! Good times….
Before I ruin anything else, I’m going to sign off.
Thanks for Listening!
The Worst Little Podcast in the World!
-WARNING: NSFW The Worst Little Podcast in the World is exactly that. It is blunt. It is tasteless tacky and offensive. And it is on the internet. But WLP isn't just for self indulgence, no! It is a chance for us to highlight the Greater Reno Area and everything that makes this town rock.
Find us on the iTunes store!
-Everyone involved in the show is a lifer in Reno and pretty deeply involved with the local scenes. In any one of our stellarly mediocre episodes you can hear Rory, Nick, Josh and Rick talk about what they are up to, interviews with local personalities, live musical performances and maybe, just maybe, something that will make you laugh.
