Welcome to this week’s Worst Little Podcast!
We’re super excited to have the Duke and Clip from Redfield Clipper on the show! This seven piece (!!!) eclectic hip hop group combines elements of Jazz, electronica, and traditional hip hop. They’re joining us to share some never before heard tracks from their newest album, Beach Master, and holy cow (see what I did there?), are they good. Don’t believe me? Listen for yourselves and find out what a Beach Master actually is! This show is fun *and* educational!
Redfield Clipper is comprised of Redfield Clipper – Vox/ Guitar,
The Duke of Blunts- Vox/ Bass, Chris Sexton (c$exmoney)- Vox/ Keys,
Greg Lewis- Drumset, Eric Johnson- TenorSax, Jef Derderian – Trumpet, Andy Bryant – Electronics/samples/synth. This is a true Reno super group that has been playing together since 2012. They release their first music video off Beach Master Sunday, August 6, 2017. Subscribe to their YouTube channel to be notified when it is released.
In other Reno news, there has been a humpback whale sighting in downtown Reno! Keep your eyes on City Plaza (where the Believe sculpture is located) to see the great whale erection. There will be a dedication ceremony and reception hosted by the city of Reno on August 8th. Yours truly will be there, along with the rest of the Space Whale crew and we would love to see you there.
In the meantime, check out my picks for the rest of the weekend:
Thursday night is the PBR Blue Ribbon Award Party at Shea’s. Starting at 6 you can stuff your faces with free BBQ sponsored by Pabst, and wash it all down with FREE BEER until 8 p.m.
After you’re nice and buzzy off PBR, head to Pignic for local music scene staple, Loud As Folk. This month Spike and the gang bring you national touring one man band, Acousta Noir, with supporting local acts Rachael McElhinney and Brendon Lund of Failure Machine and Silver. 8 p.m. Loud As Folk is donation based with this months proceeds going to Our Center.
Friday be sure to hit Jub Jub’s for the Voted Best Camp fundraiser show. Voted Best Camp provides shelter to starving musicians such as Chris Fox and Jonathan Daniel. For just a few dollars you can make sure your favorite local band members don’t die in the desert. Doors at 8 p.m.
If you’re looking for something completely different, head to Alturas on the Downlow for their Totally Gnarly 80s party featuring the original members of Bow Wow Wow. Costumes mandatory. 9 p.m.
Saturday night check out Reno punk band, Reno, We Have a Problem at Abby’s Highway 40. It’s a party for no reason, which is the best kind of party. 9 p.m. No cover. Pants optional.
If you’re looking for slightly more shoe gazing (just kidding, this thing is a riot), head to Monolith for Drink 182, Reno’s first and best emo night. Sing your favorite emo and pop punk tunes with the whole crowd. It’s where I’ll be! 9 p.m. No cover.
Last but not least, Monday see Haunted Summer + Avi Buffalo, People with Bodies, Night Rooms at the Holland Project. If you haven’t heard People With Bodies yet, get down there. 8 p.m. $7. All ages.
This is your friendly reminder that if you have an event or a band you think we should know about let us know! Thanks for listening, Reno!
