Late post this week. GIANT tech switchover at the Dogwater Studios
(Rick bought a new computer and is still working out the bugs) but we persevered! AND WERE TRIUPMHANT in the end. (Rick’s always triumphant in the end) We got Actors Killed Lincoln on the show this week. Well, most of em anyway… the REAL musicians of the band, Kent Irwin, Matt Kaminsky, Dan Lyons, Jenkins and Alan Kaminsky all showed up. Zach Reese, however had more IMORTANT things to do (like a competitive grad school program or gay sex). But they also persevered and were triumphant!!!
Actors Killed Lincoln threw down and played their bad-ass music in a bad-ass way. We talked a little about their upcoming CD release, which is already available online here. The show’s a little short this week, due to time constraints, so after a few songs we got right into the Worst Quiz in the World. With all five of them, it takes a while!
Well… I want to get this in your ears, so I’ll cut it short. Shout out to Reno Computer Fix for the assist in helping Rick get a great computer!
This is a great show. Really. Listen. Listen harder.
And, THANKS for listening.
It’s 5 o’clock somewhere. Do you know where your drink is?
Howdy, kiddos! Hope you’re having a great week!
Despite the fact that I still am wounded by the cold, bitter sting of him going out for a pack of cigarettes and never coming home, and he looks like Eddie Vedder mated with a brillo pad, we have the ONE AND ONLY Spencer, The Intern back on the show today! He brings with him, the always amazing Clint Philbin once more. In the fallout of The Big Bad, the two of them have teamed up to form the rocktastic and groove-makin’, Failure Machine. Two-man, distorted Motown covers and originals, they don’t need no stinkin’ band. They give us a bunch of double shots of songs and lay it down.You can follow them on Facebook or bandcamp if you want to check out some of what they do.
We also get down, if you will, with Murdoc Brickel. Murdoc comes to us from The Night Of Fetish and Fantasy(NOFF) 2013. Put on by the National Leather Association of Northern Nevada, this annual event is for fetishists, kinksters and sexy people of all levels and persuasions. Murdoc himself is a total freak and pervert. He kinda made the guys uncomfortable by being even MORE naked than Rev. Rory (who always wears nothing but a bow tie and a smile). But we had a lot of fun talking about the event that is THIS WEEKEND at Candela’s Nightclub.
Thanks for listening!
Please put your seats in the upright position!
Getting away from the metal this week with some pretty little ditties from the delightful and
hot as balls gorgeous Brittany Straw. Britt is a powerful singer and a fun person. She and her ukulele filled the rooms of Dogwater Studios with some pretty music for a change. Only playing the uke for the last 10 months or so, Britt is a pretty accomplished songwriter with no need for covers – but she’s got some fun arrangements of those too! You can check them out throughout the show!
Don’t let her adorability fool you – this lovely lady put up some big scores on the Worst Little Quiz (and, yeah, she answered ALL the questions).
We also had a lot of plugs this week! We got a chance to talk to Dan Kimm, local hypnotist and therapist. A long-time Reno entertainer, Dan was a lot of fun to talk to and we may even get him in the studio sometime. Dan’s act is going to go up shortly after his good friend and funnyman Sean Peabody rocks the stage, makin’ you laugh yo asses off. Their show, brought to you by the Reno Tahoe Comedy Club is at the Pioneer Underground this Friday night. Doors at 7.
Reverend Rory also wants to remind you of two other great events this weekend. First, there is The Creative Coalition of Midtown’s Sounds Music Walk on Friday evening, starting at 5 and going as late as midnight at eateries, bars, stores and parking lots all over Midtown Reno. Get VIP tickets at the Melting Pot. Second is DRAG QUEEN BOXING at the Alley in Sparks, brought to you by PhillipBrownTV. Doors at 8:30. Need I say any fucking more?
We also do a little PSA for the 2013 Night of Fetish and Fantasy – good kinky fun – but more on that next week when we have a guest from the event, Murdoc Brickel, come in to talk about it.
That’s about all I know, folks! Sorry I get a little “ding” happy in the first part of the show.
Thanks for listening.
Too much fun for just one ear!
Local pioneers of space rock, Bazooka Zoo stopped by the Dogwater Studios this week. The came, they drank, they laid down the laws of interstellar audio physics. They don’t mess around – they drank all of the beer and played all the musics! You can check them out on Facebook and listen to them Soundcloud.
We also get in touch with a BIG comic and friend of the show, Susan Young. She’s coming back to Reno this weekend to the Reno Tahoe Comedy Club in the Pioneer Underground. We bullshit with her for a while as usual, then she just casually drops that she’s actually opening for the Unknown Comic, Murray Langston! Maybe it’s just that I’m starting to get old, but I about wet myself when I heard that. You should check out their show and this rare live appearance this Friday and Saturday at 8pm – Susan Jones and The Unknown Comic.
We also have a fun chat with Buddy, Phillip J. Brown. Phillip is putting on the Drag Queen Boxing at The Alley on Saturday, October 12. I know… aren’t all of those words just magical? Announced by Ian Sorenson, these ladies of the ring will throw down for a great charity – Build Our Center. Our Comedian Commentators include Ed Adkins, Amanda Alvey, The Reverend Rory Dowd, Stacy Johnson, and Ginger Divine.
Bazooka Zoo also have some upcoming shows that you should check out – This Friday in fact. Listen to the show for more deets! Bazooka are a band you don’t want to miss the chance to dance off into the wild night sky with.
Thanks for Listening!
Su-prise, su-prise SU-PRISE!!!!!
Hey folks! It’s another fun week here in podcastland. We decided to reel it back a little bit and go old school: just the guys and some old tapes of Reno bands. It’s a personality driven episode! All the Rick, Nick, Rory and Chewie you can stand! We also have Dogwater Resident, The Kodiak in the studio! Cody’s always a great addition.
Oh! And check out this spider!
That is another Dogwater Resident, but it’s not allowed in the house!
We have a lot of fun this week, just talking shit and hangin’ out. Lot’s of funny jokes in there – made me laugh today even, and I hate this show!
Stay tuned for our next episode with Bazooka Zoo!
Thanks for listening!
If you cannot heat this broadcast, please contact the program director!
Hey boys and girls! Sorry about the late podcast (and a big apology to Countress). The gods of technology and the internet conspired against us last week, pushing this post out a bit. We still love you and everything’s fine!!!!!
This week, we have the good men of Countress in the studio! Countress is a metal band in the Reno music scene that has been tearing it up for about a year. Their sound edges into punk and hardcore, but the boys maintain they’re nothing but a dirty metal band – you be the judge!
Countress has a busy schedule coming up here in the fall, so you have plenty of chances to check them out live. But if this podcast isn’t enough for you you can check them out on bandcamp and soundcloud.
Well, this week has been a shit show – I hope you enjoy THIS SHOW however. But I’m done. Glad to be back.
Thanks For Listening!
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 away we go!
This every other week thing is starting to really mess up my schedule. Is it July? September? I don’t know anymore! But the studio has been a lot cooler to work in. Part of what makes it so friggin cool this week is the awesome Lucas Young! Lucas just met the guys from the show over this past summer and has impressed them all with what a superb singer, musician and songwriter he is! Lucas Young is the real deal.
Lucas Young can be found all over Reno, playing solo or with the Wilderness at open mic nights, shows and this Friday at the Knitting Factory with Buster Blue!!! Pretty damn exciting. If you happen to live in TX, we have some breaking news for you – Lucas Young has a number of tour dates coming up in central TX this fall, so you should check him out!
Also on the show this week – a surprise visit from our favorite Canadian, Danielle French. Danielle was the first guest on our show, oh so many years ago. She’s back in town before the Burn, to play some music and chill with friends. We were so happy Danielle French took the time to stop by and see us!!!
Well, I gotta run…
Thanks for listening!
Lets try this again….
So it belatedly came to my attention that the last time I posted a “Best of’ it just linked to the Scizopolitans’ episode.
Well here is the actual Best of the Worst put together by Executive Fluffer, Bryce!
Hope you enjoy! We’ll be back next week with Lucas Young!
Thanks for Listening!
Did’ja miss me?
This week we have a whole episode about what’s happening in Reno this weekend! What a shock!
The first thing we’ve got is Wildstock! A benefit for the Wildflower Village. Organized by Michaeek MacMillan, Wildstock is a threeday blast out at the Wildflower Village, home to a gallery, absinthe bar, pub, the Iris Room and 2013 Nada Dada. It’s going to be a great event with lots and lots of local Reno music, burlesque, comedy, fire and much more!! Your very own Reverend Rory will be playing a set afternoon as well as emceeing most of the day.
Mike brought a couple performers from the event with him – Gabe Hilton and Jill Marlene. While these two wonderful Reno musicians performed together as a mother-son duo on the podcast, they are actually playing in separate groups during the Wildstock event! Oh, Reno, you are a juggernaut of talent…..
Old friend of the show, Elgin Alway also comes by to promote a comedy review that he’s put together at the Studio on 4th this Friday night. Should be a lot of fun, with three Reno comics and one from Sacramento! He’s also involved with a RAW Artists Reno show on the 22nd. Listen for details!
Also, while you’re out, don’t forget to check out the Biggest Little Lemonade Mixer, brought to you by Reno Arts & Exchange at Jub Jub’s Thirst Parlor! Going to be a new networking event with performers and vendors and booths and LEMONADE!
Well, that’s all I know, so again, Thanks for listening!
