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!
Pussy. That’s right. Pussy.
Arguably, the secret to our success
(and quasi-failures) rests in the concept of locking musicians entertainers in a small sweaty room and feeding them beer and or coffee for 90 minutes. It’s always a helluva good time – but there are weeks when it really gets… weird… or funny – like clownmeat. Elgin Alway and Bishop getting crazy in the studio! Bishop is the lead singer and guitarist for Formerly Known As, A Tribute to Prince, and Elgin is one of the top rated comedians in Reno (according to him, anyway). They are a volatile mixture behind the mics. Seriously, there was even a total Freaky Friday moment when Elgin’s playing guitar and Bishop’s doing the joke-thing. Bishop and Elgin may have been channeling each other at that point – not sure.
Sponsor Time! Reno Computer Fix is offering $25 off any purchase or service over $100 IF you mention the Worst Little Podcast when you go in. These guys repair and sell refurbished computers of all kinds – it’s a sweet deal. They’ve been totally hooking us up here, so get in on the action!
Nick’s Journal Time (An Unexpected Tale) didn’t go exactly as planned – no one let the guests know that they were supposed to shut the hell up. Rory didn’t quite get to go into his review of Doubt, the current production at Bruka Theater – again, lots of interruptions. And by that point we didn’t even ask Rick what his week was like, not because we don’t really care, no! but because we were distracted by Bishop’s ethereal signifyin’ tirades or Elgin’s attempts to get a good Billy Dee Williams groove going on.
Bishop is keeping pretty tight lipped about his next performance with Formerly Known As, but Elgin will be appearing this weekend at the Reno Tahoe Comedy Club’s Roast of Pat Schillito, recent guest and friend of the show, this very weekend – so it should be a blast. Chekkit out!
Nick wanted me to remember to talk about something else…. but it was at the open mic at Jub Jub’s when he told me, so I forgot. This coming week though!!! Blazing Mics will be hosted by the awesome and ripping Michelle Coleman of Scarlet Presence!! $1 off for all performers and a $25 bar tab for the best performance of the night! Come on down!!!
And in a completely unrelated note – The Rocky Horror Pinky Show will be reprising their spectacular performance at this year’s Reno Artown!!! Cargo is bringing us back for two performances on July 27! Rocky Horror with a mostly full cast, a live band playing all the songs and lots of partici….. pation. More details about that in the next few months, but write that down!!! Put it on your phone calendar!!! It’s Rocky Horror like you’ve never seen it before.
Anyway…. thanks for listening. 🙂
