What is with the ups, mofos? Being awesome and taking care of your own, that’s what’s up. That’s why we have, at long last, Kittenhead on the podcast this week. These good friends from the Bay and LA are headlining Day one of Emergency Marianarchy this weekend and we are pleased as punch to have them on the show.
Only Dede and Kivi join us on the show, due to scheduling conflicts, but it bears mentioning that Kittenhead has not practiced or played since the beginning of the pandemic in March. They got together specifically to record the videos they submitted to the Emergency Marianarchy, simply because they love the shit out of Jub Jub’s, individually and as a band.
Kittenhead has long been a friend of Marianarchy and many of us on the podcast, professionally and personally, for many years. It really is a treat to get to have them on the show – one good thing to come out of the Age of Covid is our ability to still carry on the show with friends and musicians who live further away. Not ideal, nor what we want the show to be, but getting to interview some great friends is second best to having them play here live.
We hope you join us for Marianarchy at 6pm on Friday and 6pm on Saturday.
Thanks for listening and Fuck Your Day.
What a fucking week. I’m personally still processing a lot of things that have happened, personally and publicly, as I’m sure many of you are too.
For this week’s episode, we are joined by some of the creators and founders and owners of Jub Jub’s Thirst Parlor, Brian Smith, Faith Zayumeyer, Josh Smith and Lew Zaumeyer. From the playa to Wells Avenue, it’s a wild, passionate telling of a story and borderline meltdown that Jess Blaze would be proud of.
In an unprecedented decision, Marianarchy is going to put on an Emergency Marianarchy to help Jub’s out, in light of the difficulties in owning a venue in 2020. Furthermore, this October surprise will replace the traditional Winterball. Because we need to make it happen for our family, our home. If you are interest in helping, please check out the event page, donate on the GoFundMe page, or to donate art, merch or DIY goods, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sadly, it was not all fun and drinking games this week. Reno lost a good friend and talented musician this weekend. Grouch. A guitarist for many Reno bands including The Riptide Bandits and Voted Best Band, Grouch was a beloved member of the Reno music and art community. His sudden passing is an incredible shock. All the music this week is from The Riptide Bandits, much of it from their unreleased second album, recorded here at Dogwater Studios. We hope you enjoy it.
Life is short; we love you. Tell your friends and family you love them.
Thanks for listening.

It’s Intern Week here on the Worst Little Podcast, introducing myself (Sam, the Intern) on the production end of things and the lovely Jamie Woodham, handling general, top secret podcast-ey stuff. She joins us on the show this week along with The Tides. The Tides (not the laundry detergent) are a new(ish) rock/punk band, and they don’t even really DO laundry! At the heart of the group, and back on the show with us, is the one and only Oliver Hull (guitar/vocals).
But wait, there’s more! Oliver is joined by his two devilishly handsome friends, Fred Dai (bass) and Derek Todd (drums). The Tides have been playing together for a while, but only recently emerged from a 6 month hiatus due to Oliver’s punk-like neck breakage. Listen now to find out how he did it!
In other news, Evil Dead the Musical is going fabulously, Nick also doesn’t do laundry, and Rikku found herself grounded *gasp* after a series of very big no-no’s.
You can find this steamy trio on their website or on Facebook. Their next show is not until Marianarchy, but stay tuned with them for any yet-to-be-announced shows!
Thanks for Listening

Hey Kids! How’s it going out there in the real world? That bad? Well, pull up a stool and listen to to some powerful depressin’ songs by this week’s guest, Myke Read, and feel better about yourself. Myke is better known for playing with the Infecto Skeletons, but recently he’s made a venture into the world of country music, acoustic guitars and prison songs. Chekkout how purty Myke Read sings.
Also in studio is Jenny PezDespencer, talking about her upcoming comedy show at Jub Jub’s Thirst Parlor. She will be recording a live album at this show, so it’s going to be a lot of fun! Listen in for the BIG CONTEST to win tickets to this live comedy album recording of Jenny PezDespencer, one of our favorite Reno comics.
Jeff Done, bright eyed and bushy tailed, hangs out with us during the show too. It’s good to see Jeff.
We3 also have a brief phone call with next week’s guests, Dan Harmann and Ky Alfred Hillig. Both hail from Washington and will be playing at St. James Infirmary on Monday 5/19, just after coming onto the podcast to record with us! Fun guys on the phone, we can’t wait to hang out and give them the Worst Little Quiz next week – they’ll have no idea
(unless they read this. which they won’t.) Take a sec to chekkout their music ans stop by the show!
Finally, lets not forget about this weekend – MARIANARCHY X – Friday, May 16th and Saturday May 17th. 30+ bands in two days! We’ve been raising money for 10 years to help out our Reno family and artists and non-profits, in honor of the late Marianne Psota, with huge support from the community. THis year’s beneficiaries are Keely Davis, a little girl with Down’s Syndrome, and Emily Reese, Reno teacher and personality on the Reno Tahoe Tonight Show on Nevada Matters and Renegade Radio, who was recently diagnosed with cancer after already having beaten it into submission. As we say around Maryanarchy, “Fuck Your Cancer!”, and now “Fuck Your Syndrome” joins the catalogue of Jub-isms. It is going to be another great show this year. Please come out and help us make a difference in someone’s life, once again.
Thanks for Listening!

Constant Companion, Nick Ramirez, hops in the driver’s seat this week while Dogwater Studios plays host to Whitebulbs an Americana/folk/punk band from Reno NV. Aaron Foelsch, Kyle Dazey, Zach Compton, Ken Shepherd and Andy Pavlu crash the studio with their high-energy music. Rev. Rory was out with a case of being a parent, so I don’t have a whole lot to say about the show. It’s weird to listen, but Nick did a good job in my stead.
These guys start us with a barbershop lullaby, but shortly thereafter kick things into high gear. I for one can’t wait to see Whitebulbs live and in action some night soon. They are an active band with facebook and reverbnation pages as well as their own website. They’ve been playing out a lot with some great bands and have a bunch of other shows lined up in the near future. Check them out!
Well, it’s a fun episode – listen already!
And thanks for listening!
PS Nate the intern. don’t think I’m not paying attention to where your balls have been. Retribution will be had when you least expect it.
He might not be looking for it…
…but trouble always seems to find him.
Hey everybody! We continue to switch things up on you and keep the show at least as fresh as day old bread! Veteran troubadour and troublemaker, Bruce Lindsay, treats us to some of his poetry and music. He’s a combination of deep waters and a babbling brook – there’s something deep there, amongst the light, shadow and rocks, but sometimes all you get is shallow. Luckily, Lindsay brought his A-game – and a bunch of books CDs and copies of his award-winning movie “Under the Radar”that he gave to us! This cat knows how to treat big-time stars!
Nick hits Rory with a curve ball in the middle of the episode – he challenges Reverend Rory and Bruce Lindsay to a poetry read-off. The wordsmiths dust off some works from ye olde Blue Lamp Open Mic days and do battle with literary claymores – Lindsay took the title by the smallest of margins
(mostly since I LET HIM win, cause I’m classy like that). It was strangely a lot more fun than it sounds – a rare treat for and from the vaults.
Our main focus this week, aside from all the crazy creativve and wonderful things Bruce Lindsay does, is MARIANARCHY WINTERBALL 2012 – A Benefit for Tom Plunkett!!!!! As if you weren’t aware, Marianarchy is this weekend and we are helping out our good friend, Tom Plunkett, Reno actor, director, musician, personal friend of Bruce Lindsay AND the show. Nick reads off the list of band names or you can check out the Day 1 lineup here and the Day 2 lineup here. The Rev will be hosting it (Saturday is his birthday) and we are looking forward to a really really great weekend. Please join us!!!!
Thanks for Listening!!
Welcome to the start of your summer season, Reno!
As I mentioned in last week’s post, Jess Blaze, local promoter and true believer, passed away in her sleep. We start the show with an audio tribute to Jess; we humbly share these memories of a woman we all loved very much. She was also a big part of …..
That’s right! After months and months of teasing it out – IT’S REALLY HERE!!! MARIANARCHY 2012!!!!!!! Friday May 18 and Saturday May 19!!!
It’s one hell of a line up this year, with the reunions of Phat Couch and Gunshot Licker on Friday and Saturday nights, respectively. There’s a raffle and silent auction, Happy-Hour Potluck, BBQ. Admission is whatever you can donate to the cause. This year, the proceeds will go to benefit the familes of Rev. Gary Setzer and Jess Blaze
(who are secretly pissed that they’re missing this show, or so I’m told). The events will be emceed by yours truly, Reverend Rory. Come see me turn into Jerry Lewis over a 48 hour period!!!
Seriously, though – this is probably my favorite event in Reno every year. You should really check it out. Marianarchy is at the cultural heart of Reno and Ground Zero for a lot of the love and camraderie in the Reno music and sart scenes. It is really something special and you should check it out.
Also on the show this week is Reno City Councilman and Sparks-core native, Dave Aiazzi. Dave is a really good friend of Nick’s and a big supporter of our simmering arts scene here in Reno. He also knows how to take a joke
(Thanks in advance for not getting a cease and desist on the picture, Dave). Irma Geddon jumps into the fray with some insightful questions about how people can get things done with the city, what happened to the Occupy Moana thing, and what is up with that airline food? For his part, Dave does not particularly care for the airline chicken plate. I think Dave had something he wanted to talk about, but we all kept badgering him with questions and cutting to the music. It was probably important.
Maybe next time. Ha?
At any rate – Come to MARIANARCHY 2012 at JUB JUB’S THIRST PARLOR! MAY 18 AND 19!!!!
This is easily our most offensive episode yet. Like that-time-I-faked-a-miscarriage-for-Halloween motherfuckerbulldogcheeksshitcuntfartbloody stoolsnottyshlongtwogirlsonecupcockbastardmeatpursedonkeypunch offensive.
I’d like to start by acknowledging that we make mistakes. Yes, I know, it’s hard to believe, but we fuck up sometimes. Like my grandfather’s name is “Ed” not “Gerald” or whatever it was I said(see Ep.39). The most glaring mistakes in this show are the date for the Ditch the Pilot benefit show, (Dec. 8 ) since they house got burnt down, and the fact that this is our 41st episode, not our 40th. But anyways….
We cover a lot of ground in this nearly 2 hour episode. Mike Adragna, Morgan Hough and Tom McInturf of Red Mercury are
this week’s victims are a bunch of really fun guys. They got the vibe of the show right away and rolled with it. I think I even blushed a couple of times (AND I tell an awful, awful joke I made up and promised teh Wifey I wouldn’t repeat. But, ssshhh – don’t tell her.) Red Mercury plays a few really fucking awesome live songs and some tracks off of their fairly new CD; in the interview, they really let their hair down, but… we already talked about that.
We also touch on the Caughlin Fire, Movember, Marianarchy, football (Raiders suck, Go Pack!), how busy Rick is and much much more. Well, not really MUCH, much more, but some other things, and postulations and theorems waxing upon life. And bad jokes. Lots of those.
And as always, my Unseen Audience: Thanks for listening.
