Greetings and welcome back to the Worst Little Podcast! Your hosts Rick, Nick “I’m Too High for This” Ramirez, Chewbacca and Kadillac Kim are back after a little vacation to bring you an exciting show featuring the immensely talented singer-songwriter, Ryan James, and the partial cast/crew of Good Luck Macbeth’s The Play About a Dick. We’re talking about dicks this week so buckle up. This episode is definitely NSFG (Not Safe for Grandma). Press play!
First up is our musical guest Ryan James, who is prepping for his first full length album release this Friday at West Street Market with the Grimtones and Jake Houston. Ryan has put together quite the Reno super group to back him. You’re in for a treat Friday night at this all ages show.
We were also joined by Ashley, Dave, and Amanda Alvey who is the director of the newest show at Good Luck Macbeth, The Play About a Dick. From the event page: Good Luck Macbeth is proud to produce the US premiere of Aaron Wilton’s hilarious and provocative work, “The Play About a Dick”. A middle-aged woman, Enid, meets a younger man online for sex. But what starts as a simple rendezvous becomes a darkly comedic exploration of vulnerability, intimacy and empathy. After an unpredictable reaction, things become chaotic for Enid as her life gradually spirals outward. The play about a dick. examines themes of communication, guilt, kindness, solitude, gender roles, human connection, post-truth reality and existential vacuity. Its also a play about a dick.

Hope you’ve been enjoying the weather lately! Everything always smells like campfire! What’s good around a campfire? Old school country music. Jake Houston and the Tin Can String Band are the perfect background when you’re sippin’ whiskey and watchin’ the world burn. The eponymous Jake Houston joins us on the show this week and while this young man is an amazing performer and songwriter in his own right – he’s nothing without the Tin and the Can, Samantha Gates and Ivan Gates.
This trio has only been playing for a few months, but they are all seasoned musicians and does it show. It was hot enough in that studio, but they made it cook!
We also take a little tine to mention again Evil Dead The Musical – The Reno Edition at Good Luck Macbeth theater which is opening this weekend to a sold out crowd and running through Halloween night.
You’ll be able to catch Jake Houston and the Tin Can String Band very soon, but you’ll have to listen to the episode to find out when! And trust me, you do want to. I can’t wait to see more out of this band who literally already have hours of music to play.
Thanks for Listening
