…of Season 3!!!

Jill Marlene From The Hazards of Love Tribute Show
The Juxtaposeurs visit us this week at Dogwater Studios. The Juxtaposeurs are an ensemble cast of musicans, dancers, performers and tech crews. They have assembled to put on an encore production of The Hazards of Love Tribute Show. Following the inspiration of Assistant Directors Gabe Hilton and Kaitlin Oki, they recreate and stage the narrative told in The Decemberists’ album “The Hazards of Love”. This show was very well received when we first performed it in the Fall of 2010 and we are putting it on again at Jub Jub’s Thirst Parlor in just a few weeks.

Chris Nelson from the Hazards of Love Tribute


We? Oh, did I forget to mention that Reverend Rory is in this production? Well he is. An original cast member, along with vocalists Marlene and Music Director Chris Nelson, they are joined by many new talents including vocalist Margy Ford. Jon Cornell steps up and accompanies them although he is not in the production this time around.

Margy Ford from The Hazards of Love Tribute Show


The Hazards of Love Tribute Show will be at the Jub Jub’s Thirst Parlor Showroom for 7:30 PM shows on Fridays and Saturday 2/7, 2/8 and 2/14 with a Sunday Matinee at 2:30 on 2/9. Music entertainment will follow at the main bar. Tickets for The Hazards of Love Tribute Show, available at Jub Jub’s, Prism Magic, The Melting Pot or cast members, are $12 in advance or $15 at the door and include admission to the after parties.

Finally a shout out to the fine folks at The Generator! They put on a fine pot luck meal for artists and patrons and friends every Wednesday at their facility and are always looking for anyone interested in getting involved. THey are having a bg fundraiser on Saturday 2/15 – Buy It or Burn It! All the pieces up for auction will be voted on to be displayed with pride at the Generator or immolated with delight at the Generator.

Back on Track for the new season next week!

Thanks for listening.

Season Three is winding to a close. Things will be ALL NEW in Season Four. Like getting the podcast out on time (still looking for the right sucker applicant to fill the position of Production Intern – contact Reverend Rory to make that happen).


Chris Fox of Voted Best Band


But still, this is a fun show. This here is VOTED BEST BAND!!! They are an underrated rock talent in the Reno are, hailing from the rural community of Black Rock, NV. Inspired by the music of their now far off youth, they continue to play the anthems and dancing music that first sent them down the life of punk rock losers.

Tony Grouch of Voted Best Band


These Voted Best Band guys are seriously wasting their talent in this project, with pedigrees that include some of the mightiest Reno bands including The Vampirates, The Riptide Bandits, Suckapunch, Twelve Gauge Facelift and more. This kind of star power doesn’t just happen overnight. It takes years of meticulous study and rehearsal to write the kind of songs they do. Which is to say none.

Alex Maddy of Voted Best Band


This episode was a lot of fun and the boys came to play ball with the quiz. I forget everything that was said, but it was really funny. Bear with us, it felt like a slow start before it grew to our normal cacophony. But maybe that’s a good thing.

Dave Masud of Voted Best band
I don’t even know what I’m saying anymore. I rarely make sense. I doubt anyone is reading this.
Anyway – thanks for listening.

Hey, Ladies and Gentlemen!
Welcome to the first show of the new year. We had some technical issues this week and it pushed back the podcast a little, but we have a fun show for you. The whole gang’s here and Chewie brought in some great tapes of the Great Old Ones of the Reno scene. Joining us also are Sam O’Brien and Victoria Velasquez.

Sam O'Brien of Empire Comedy and Rainshadow HS

Sam O’Brien is a leading comic and writer at Empire Improv, making audiences laugh since at least a couple of days ago. A busy man, Sam is also a teacher at Rainshadow High School and very involved in the Reno arts and education communities. He joins us this week mostly as a comic, but has some upcoming events related to the high school that he is really excited to promote.

Victoria Velasquez from Reno Art Works


Victoria Velasquez is also in the studio with us. A fellow teacher at Rainshadow, Vicki is also involved in the Reno art scene as a resident artist at Reno Art Works. You can find her there most evenings as well as her work hanging on the walls of her studio space at RAW.

I could say more about what they’ve got going on, but that’s for you to find out when you listen. Again, a big thanks to Sam O’Brien and Victoria Velasquez for being on the show!

Winter sucks.

Hola, mis amigos! First of alll, thank you to everyone that came out and supported Marianarchy this weekend. Despite the snowstorm, we had a fantastic time as usual! All the acts, Friday and Saturday were just great. There are too many people to thank for their support, including Jub Jub’s. We love you. So does Maryanne.

Lawrence Coleman III On The Worst Little Podcast

This week we have the Return of Larry! Lawrence Coleman III shows up with Jacey Goldfinger and Marcelo Nobrega, the other members of his project, LC3 and Dope Called Glory. Unfortunately, this is not only their first performance, but it is also their last! Larry, you see, is going to the English countryside for a year, to search his soul, make dandelion crowns and wistfully look out over lakes and moors. Jacey and Marcelo will remain behind in Reno, keepin’ it real and making music.

Jacey Goldfinger looking adorable on The Worst Little Podcast 2013 12 09

I don’t know if we fully explained it on the show, but when larry first moved to Reno, he was in a band called Greyscale. They were a bunch of young twerps and punks playing some hardcore metal – nice guys, but just using Reno as a stepping stone. Reverend Rory interviewed them back in tha’ day for the Reno News and Review. Then, a bunch of drinking and rock shows happened.  Larry ended up staying and becoming a mainstay and vital part of the Reno music scene for the better part of a decade. It seemed only fitting that he go out with another session with The good Reverend. Literally, he got on a plane and left town the morning after this was recorded.

Marcelo Nobrega on The Worst Little Podcast 2013 12 09


Ashley Marie, noted Reno actor and director, also stopped by to promote the new season of Good Luck MacBeth and assuring us that it won’t be too long before she returns to the Bruka stage. Ashley was happy (read: SQUEEEEing like a schoolgirl) to recently announce that she will be directing Evil Dead: The Musical in the upcoming GLM season. It’s been a while since Ashley has been on the show and it was nice to have her back. Maybe next time she won’t lose her voice and be able to be on the show.

We had a super fun time this weekend. Listen in next week for our Christmas Episode featuring The Notorious R.A.D. aka Princess Bombs.

Hello, friends! I hope you had a great holiday weekend and stuffed yourselves. Rev. Rory was in a food coma all weekend, which is why the podcast is late. Again.

This episode features the rockin’ goodness of Reno alt-country troubadours, The Refiners! These gents came in and kicked down the doors of Dogwater Studios. Calling themselves “Waylan through a modern lens”; Bill, Ned and Doug are the real deal. They curse. They drink. They play some damn fine music. We got to hear some country covers and some Refiner originals and it was damn fine.

Bill McKean of The Refiners on The Worst Little Podcast
I’m going to take this time to interrupt the blog post to remind you about the upcoming festivities this weekend at the Marianarchy Winter Formal! With over 40 bands in 2 days, this is easily our biggest Marianarchy yet! A benefit for Nico Theologitis of Nico’s Greek Deli, who was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year, this Marianarchy Winter Formal is a special one. It is also the first Marianarchy on two stages and a prelude to Marianarchy X, comping this May. (Aaaaannnnnd….. it just happens to be Rev. Rory and Nick Ramirez’s birthday party)

Ned Chaney of the Refiners on the Worst Little Podcast


We hope you will join us, hope you enjoy this show and we hope you are all well!Many thanks to the Refiners for an awesome set and toe-tapping good music!

See you next week with Lawrence Coleman III and Ashley Marie!

This is a great episode. We had a lot of fun with Six Mile Station promoting their upcoming shows. But there is a special treat! Something you have to listen to. See what Six Mile Station had in store for Thee Reverend Rory and Chewie.

Just Nick Ramirez wasn’t able to make it – he was too busy rocking out with his band, The Liver Scars, and Cadaver Dogs down at the always entertaining Shea’s Tavern. Killer time – and you probably missed it!


John Underwood


I don’t wanna waste any of your time so you can just get to the show. Here are some more pictures of the band:

Off tha’ hook!

This week, we’d like to introduce to you the unleashed power of Undenied, a metal band here in Reno. Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control and up to the whim of the Norse gods of old, this has turned out to be Undenied’s final performance! EXCLUSIVELY from the Worst Little Podcast in the World at Dogwater Studios. Almost three full seasons in and we STILL bring you exclusive crap every week!

Casey Simmons, Nick Ramirez, Josh Martin, Cameron Shirey, Derek "Dee" Jennings, Aaron "Fester" Webb and Adrian "Ace" Ybarra,

The Bird is The Word

But that’s what we do here at the Worst Little Podcast – we document Reno’s music and bands before they have a chance to break up and fade into ignominy! It happens, and we wish Casey, Fester, Cameron, Dee and Ace nothing but the best in their future endeavors and facemelting!!! These guys are pretty talented, so it won’t surprise me to see them forming other bands or getting snapped up by existing ones. When it comes to bands that entertain us, Undenied is in the winners circles. Lots of fucked up lauchs on the show, including a water sports story. Yes. That’s exactly what I mean. We even have video proof of this wacky tale of hi-jinks gone absolutely right! Just look below:

Wasn’t that fun??? *shudder* Thanks, Undenied! Don’t let the door hit your ass on the way out!

Casey Simmons, Nick Ramirez, Josh Martin, Cameron Shirey, Derek "Dee" Jennings, Aaron "Fester" Webb and Adrian "Ace" Ybarra

Hooligans. The lot of em.

Thanks for Listening!

We’re getting caught up here. This should be the last late episode for a while (BOY, an intern sure would be nice, if you know anyone who wants to learn about the exciting world of podcast production!). However, this week, the wait is definitely worth it (again).

Continuing the current trend of rock and roll duos, Small Drawings is up in here this week. Like the jerks in jeans and t-shirts that they are, Small Drawings puts out a big  indie garage sound and screams the night away. Drew on the guitar and Mike on the drums have a great set of original songs that will kick your amps up to 11.

Drew Ernhout - singer and guitar player - smiling

On the show this week we also re-iterate the announcement of the Good Luck MacBeth 2014 season, including Evil Dead: The Musical which will be directed by Ashley Marie in October of 2014. This is a special announcement, since Reverend Rory FINALLY gets to talk about his role in the production as stage manager. We’re all super excited for this. If you are interested in auditioning for the 2014 GLM season, you can do that in just a few weeks; get the details on auditioning here.

Michael Smalski - drummer - smiling


And Finally, we take the time to introduce our newest WLP Intern, Nate. Not much to say about him yet. But don’t worry; I have complete confidence that he’ll fuck up soon. So the next time something goes wrong, don’t blame Reverend Rory – blame Nate. Don’t blame Dogwater Dick – blame Nate. It’s a fun and easy game you can play at home.



That’s all I’ve got for now. See you on Thursday with a great episode featuring Undenied.

Thanks for Listening.

You can actually see the Mountains of Madness if you look deeply into his eyes

Wolpertinger in the studio! Who are Wolpertinger? Well, aside from including Gary Kephart, Wolfgang Price, Tommy “Cancer Survivior” Plunkett and Rich Washburn – listen to the show to find out more about the fantastic personalities that are Wolpertinger. What does Wolpertinger sound like – well, either listen to the show or check out Reverend Rory’s review of them in his most recent “100 Word Bias” column in the latest issue of Reno Tahoe Tonight!

Tom Plunkett - guitar

totally NOT a perv or anything

I should really apologize to the guys from Wolpertinger for the lateness of htis podcast – Halloween really kicked all of our asses, with the Punkin Carving Party, the actual night of, friends’ birthdays, drinking heavily and all the other usual stuff. But I hope they can understand that no offense was meant – Dogwater Dick and Reverend Rory are just lazy assholes.

Gary Kephart - bass

Gary and Nick were hanging out before the show…

Well, I ought to sign off and work on the next podcast so that it’s not late – check out our next episode with Small Drawings!!!

Rich Washburn - Wolpertinger

What a Dick!
