The turn of a season, the promise of a turn in the tide: this the stage is set for this week’s guest, Franc Friday. New and unexpected things from this quadrant – like many, Franc spent the past year getting his experimental introspection on . Instead of plying his wordsmithing to his beats, he dropped a full solo album, “Once More Lost in the Post,” with vocals and songwriting recently. It’s a real treat, so I don’t want to spoil too much for you, but I think without giving anything away, we can tell you that it is darkly evocative music that calls you to follow it, each song to the next.
Frank Friday (aka Evynn Tyler) is more than just a rapper and musician though., He’s also a pretty face. I kid – Evynn is a talented writer and professional committed to human and civil rights and literacy initiatives (but he’s totally been a model too) You can check out his more erudite creative outputs over at evynntyler.com.
So! In the interests of jump starting this live music and entertainment thing, we were thinking it would be cool to have a central place for people to find out what’s happening around town… like a grid or something like that… So, here’s your first Installment of: The Worst Little Grid
Thanks For Listening.
Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back!
It’s been a loooooong break, almost as long as Ricks….. sobriety, (sure, we’ll go with that). We hope all your Christmas wishes have come true and all your New Year’s Resolutions
are already broken are coming to fruition!
We are pleased to welcome to the show a true Reno bon vivant, the singular MC, Franc Friday. Two-time “Best Rapper in Northern Nevada” winner, Franc has worked the crowds in Reno for half a decade and shows no sign of holding back. His is a new kind of hip hop – lyrically aggressive, sharp electronica blended with beats.
Despite having digs all the way over on the East Coast, in NYC, he still regularly visits the RNO, recording and releasing music. His EP, “Frequent Flyer” dropped at the end of 2017 and he is already at work on his next. We have exclusive Franc Friday tracks, including something still in the mix, up early in the show. It’s hard to get to the songs though, because godDAM that boy can talk. You all think Reverend Rory is this self-absorbed force of nature that talks over everything? He was naught but a flea in the path of the Franc Train.
Also, there’s a little something Rick gets into early in the show: we now have a Patreon page! https://www.patreon.com/worstlittlepodcast That’s right – you too can be a part of the podcast without doing anything but throw a little money in our humble hat! After seven fun seasons, we are turning to you, the listening audience, for a little love. It’s not that we are likely to stop promoting Reno artists, musicians, events and venue, or refrain from archiving live tracks of as many Reno, Sparks, Carson and Northern Nevada bands as we possibly can. No! We’re suckers and love doing this for our own amusement and benefit. But, if you appreciate what we do and how we do it – you can be a part of the team! Buy the bands a beer! Get us to say your name on an episode! Name your terms – we have few boundaries and interns for when we do!

As always, it’s good to have you hear. We have a fantastic year lined up for you so far, including a kick-ass “Women’s March” with the Month of Three being dominated with great Reno ladies; some old friends and some surprises; and of course, all the newest Reno music and events.
