Some people just don’t know when to stay down. As we wrap up Season 12, we thought we’d close out with a round-up of our most frequent regular guests. At the suggestion of Josiah Knight, this week’s episode is exclusively guests who have been on the show at least five times in the last 12 years. In addition to our favorite murderhobo, Josiah, we are joined by Mark Earnest (Kanawha, Manchild), Jen Scaffidi (Blunderbusst, Wizard Colors), Dan Steinmetz (Thee Saturday Knights, Manchild), Spike McGuire (Loud As Folk), and Greg GIlmore (Greg Gilmore and the Fever Dreams, Loud As Folk). There’s even a track from Johnny Harpo, who couldn’t make it – but that’s exclusive to our Patreon subscribers, as you’ll come to find out. Repeatedly.
This show is a lot of fun – a lot of jokes and reminiscing and a live track from Greg Gilmore opens the whole thing. Its a real treat to call all of these wonderful humans and noted musicians our friends, and to get a chance to sit down and talk with them like this.
Lots of great shows happening this weekend, and you’ll have to listen to hear our picks, but the one you should care about is the one that happens hours after this is published – The Holiday Hammering at The Cellar at Alturas. Brought to you by the Rock Solid Pressure Show, the evening’s entertainment includes performances from A Wormhole Could Kill Us All, One Ton Dually, FloodFireDeathDrought, and Manchild. IT’s aso a celebration for Nick and The Rev’s birthdays! So come through if you’re out in Reno tonight.
Thanks for Listening!

Kim, Rory, and Rick are sitting down with part of the cast of the musical Get Bent: A Gender Bent Musical Review. In the studio we have Michelle, Stephanie, and the lovely Xelena – Empress of the Impossible – here to fill us in on their latest gender bending production. They answer the hard questions and share a few songs from the show. So listen up and play along at home.
For Sisters Three Productions co-creators/producers Michelle Calhoun and Stephanie McMullen, it was important to show that a part can be just as impactful when done by the opposite gender for which it was written, and at times even more powerful. “Get Bent” is an original production that will feature famous musical numbers but with a twist: everything is gender bent. Proceeds of this production will benefit Our Center, a local shelter for programs, services, and resources for the LBGTQ community in Reno.
See Get Bent starting November 10th at The Potentialist Workshop. Show dates and tickets can be found here.This production is suitable for ages 13+, and the after dark show (Saturday at 10 pm) is suitable for ages 18+. Thanks to the cast of Get Bent for being on the show!

Friday – Generation WE: A Hip HOpera opens this Friday at the Potentialist Workshop. This will be a once in a lifetime experience with music from Weapons of Mass Creation. This innovative production tells the story of four individuals each in possession of a mysterious silver ticket and each searching for America but finding a lot more than they bargained for along the way. Presented in the form of a Hip-HOpera the story unfolds through theatrical performance, song, rap, poetry and dance. Click here for show dates and tickets. $15 adv/$18 at the door.
Saturday – Show up at Shea’s for some witchy metal from NYC band Vajra, joined by locals Uncle Angry and American Slacker Society. 9 p.m. 21+

Please click here to help support the Dundas family in their time of grief.

But back to Basement Tapes. Basement Tapes describes their music as retro, 60s, raw, high-energy garage rock. Revisiting a time when music had music had soul, with post-modern punk attitude, melodic, grooving bass lines, thunderous rolling drums, powerful crashing guitar riffs and a harmonious couple on vocals. Basement Tapes plays straight-forward simple rock and roll.

Hello and congrats to Famous Dave’s for being voted best Reno podcast! This week your second favorite and ONLY Worst Little Podcast has cooked up something really special for you. We have Skycats in the studio, FINALLY! Yours truly, Kadillac Kim, has been so excited to showcase them on the podcast that I have hardly been able to contain myself. To say that this duo is talented would be the understatement of the century. Or at least like the last few minutes. I’m very dramatic. Anyway, listen up to hear me fangirl all over them (it gets messy).
But first, something completely different! We have on the phone all the way from Texas, Jordan from Portland band Coastlands. They took a minute out of their busy tour schedule to talk to us about their upcoming show at the Saint (while shooting a music video, for fuck’s sake). We have a short interview and a song we’re previewing for you here in internet land. Coastlands is playing at the Saint Aug 26th with podcast veterans Moons Of Vega and Pink Awful. Listen up to get a taste of the shoegazey goodness. I’ll be sharing the video as soon as I have my hands on it, so keep an eye out for that and be sure to go to the show with us! Or at least me, you know I get around…
But back to Skycats! Skycats is a collaboration between Reno’s own Grace Hayes and Bazooka Zac. Both accomplished musicians in their own rights, together they make magic. Space magic. Or something. You heard Zac’s beats on last week’s podcast when we featured Redfield Clipper. Grace had a viral hit with the Reno Anthem, and while I’m certain she doesn’t want to be known for a silly diddy about her hometown, Reno is certainly grateful to be featured so positively by such a colossal local talent. So thanks, Grace!
They sum up their bands sound on their Facebook page calling it a dreampop, synthwave, kaleidoscope of sound and color, exploring the space between darkness and light through hauntingly beautiful jazz vocals and rich electronic textures. Accurate.
Keep your eyes on Skycats. They’re going places.
Thanks to Grace and Zac for being excellent guests on this week’s podcast!
This week in Reno music, be sure to check out alllllll the things I am about to drop on you. Are you prepared? It’s gonna be heavy…
Kelly Proud and WLP alumn Brit Straw are making music magic at the Saint with the support of Glen Osburn! Event details here. 21+ 9 p.m. No Cover.

Catch live performances from Grace Hayes, Kate Cotter, Milton Merlos, Athena McIntyre, Mel Wade, Tyler Stafford, Britt Straw, Greg Gilmore, Justin McMahon, Todd Ballowe, Nick Eng, The Electric and the Tim Tucker Band at Reno at City Plaza (by the Space Whale!).

Make a point to head to the Holland project to check out Between The Lyrics: A Celebration Of Hip Hop. This fundraiser for Holland Reno will feature artwork from over 40 different local artists, live music and delicious food provided by Nom Eats. This year’s theme is Socio-Political lyrics and each artist was given a random verse to work with. The show will be going down Saturday August 19th at 7pm. All artwork will be sold on a first come first serve basis, don’t miss out!!! All ages.
Closing out Reno art fest is a Grace Hayes solo set with a Skycats chaser. Right by the Space Whale from 5 to 6 p.m., followed by a show at Pignic at 7 p.m. Grace is celebrating her birthday by treating Reno to not one, but TWO shows! Thanks and Happy Birthday, Grace!
As always, thanks for tuning in and turning up.
Welcome to a whole new year, mofos!
We hope you all had a happy and safe new year; we sure did. Starting things off with a bang is Silver, self-described as “American Roots Music” and featuring the musical stylings of Adam Landis, Brendon Lund, Jeff Knight, Josh Kisor and Greg Gilmore. Unfortunately, Mr. Landis was not able to attend this evening’s recording as he was indisposed. “Indisposed, HOW?” you say? Well, according to all best information he “split his face open on NYE”. Not the Landis moneymaker, no!!!!! However, the band was still able to pull of a couple songs without his talents. (We wish him a speedy recovery)
In addition to some canned music with Landis on it, we got the rest of they guys in Silver to play us a couple songs live! It’s really some good stuff with strong music. This is high energy, high talent, Reno supergroup material; they’ll will make you wanna dance, drink or argue – and possibly all three. With a number of high-profile shows under their belt, they are looking forward to playing with Failure Machine and Joan and the Rivers at The Loving Cup on Feb 17. You can also catch Greg Gilmore at The Jungle on Jan 27 and in a short set this Friday at Foxy First Friday at the Foxy Olive ! The man gets around.
Thanks for Listening!
Food and friends!

Long lost compatriots and great friends, KARMA, who have returned from their long US tour, are back in with us. They crashed the studio recently and hung out, but this time, we are treated to tons of new music! I’m really blown away by the amount of talent that we
trick are lucky enough to have on the show even after 5 years. Grab her headphones tight, because they are on fire these days.
Because we are always branching and evolving and changing, we have another food guest on this week – and not one but THREE! Tony, Justin and Wolfgang of Shawarmageddon, a Mediterranean food window in the old Pneumatic Diner location. Shawarmageddon’s motto is “Eat and Destroy” and every shawarma is cook with the love of heavy metal. Good food, good folks, they came to play and have one of the more riotous quizzes on record.
Once again, it’s the end of the post and I’m out of things to say. What can I say, it’s been a loooong day. Check out open mic with Reverend Rory this week and don’t forget to get your advance all-access passes to the Off Beat Festival, Nov. 5-8, all over Reno.
[un-witty exclamation thing here]
The Worst Little Podcast – S5 E27 – Download Link
Warning: This episode is jam packed full of awesome. First, our guest – Idol Smasher, a Reno metal band that includes a member of the Dogwater family. Nate Sanders, Assistant Engineer on extended hiatus, is the guitarist for this wicked ripper of a band; he brings with him, his drummer, Tyrus Legg, and lead screech owl, John Bigby. John brings with him, his lovely, but mute, girlfriend Nessie – another Worst Little Podcast first! Never in five seasons has a guest brought a S.O. into the studio and made out with them throughout the entire episode, but here on Episode 201, we bring it to you. Like seriously, with tongue, and slurping and full-nipple.
I do apologize in advance. Really, it’s great.
They did not, however, bring a bass player. His name was Alec or Axl or Alix or something metal-y. He fails. He’s a bass player and missed the show. I don’t care if he was rescuing puppies. But it’s cool. The rest of the group was cool as hell. Idol Smasher has a lot of shows coming up in the near future; we suggest you check them out if you are of the metal persuasion.
We didn’t even have time to ask around the guys what they did for the weekend! There was so much going on with the band and some surprise guests…
“Surprise guests?” you ask? That’s right! Fresh off the road after 10 months and 20,000 miles, KARMA has returned to Reno! Greg Gilmore, Michelle Belle and Carter Stellon all stopped by the studios to surprise Dogwater Dick in the afternoon and he just set up a shit-load of microphones so everyone could play. It was really really good to see our old friends again. We didn’t get into it too much with them this week, so as not to disrespect the actual guest, Idol Smasher, but they are booked for an upcoming episode, so please stay tuned!
We didn’t get into it too much with them this week, so as not to disrespect the actual guest, Idol Smasher, but they are booked for an upcoming episode, so please stay tuned!
You can welcome KARMA back to town at their big big homecoming show next weekend, Oct 17th at Singer Social Club.
Thanks for Listening!
