S8 E13: Ep 295

We are so lucky this week to have one of the BIGGEST little guests we’ve ever had the pleasure of coming through Dogwater Studios. Ladies and gentlefolk, all the way from the former East Germany and… other(?) parts East… World-wide sensation and controversial media darlings, Hedwig and The Angry Inch! – Do you have what it takes to be a superstar? Do you have the balls? Would you sacrifice your balls for fame? Your pain is nothing.

We are joined in studio by the cast of “Hedwig and the Angry Inch“, as presented by Brüka Theater and Good Luck Macbeth Theater. We do NOT have, Joe Atack, Amy Ginder, Eric Foreman, Rhiannon Box, Daisy Foreman and Nick Ramirez in studio. No! We have the very actual, for really really reals band, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, “escorted” by director Bill Ware. What follows is a very off the cuff and revealing interview with this controversial international figure, Hedwig, and the band that supports her. There are some very shocking things that happen behind the scenes with these Eastern European rockers.

If you don’t already know what “Hedwig” is, I’m not going to tell you: you’ll just have to go see the show.

“Hedwig and the Angry Inch” will open at Good Luck Macbeth’s new space at 124 W Taylor St, this Friday, April 20, and will run through Saturday, May 12. Complete show dates can be found on the theaters’ websites, or the Facebook event page, as linked above. Tickets are available at Brown Paper Tickets. Sources suggest that there will be many audiences at capacity and you may want to get tickets in advance to save yourself some money and make sure you can get your seats. As a joint production by two of the most edgy theaters in Reno, “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” is a first in Reno independent performing arts – and hopefully not the last. (EVERYBODY WILL BE THERE – GET YOUR TICKETS SO YOU’RE NOT LEFT OUT).

Welcome to literally the worst podcast in the world!

The-Worst-Little-Podcast-2017-08-28  – S7 E26 Download Link

This week we welcome Rory back to the show but not in his normal capacity as he is one of tonight’s guests! Also missing but present is Mr. Nick Ramirez. Nick and Rory, along with band-mates Spike and Jackson are here as One Ton Dually, and they’re ready with like six songs, so hold onto your tits, dear listeners. Listen up as Chewy and Kadillac Kim attempt to fill Nick and Rory’s rather large hosting shoes/chairs. We’re here talking about murders and Reno and Murderino’s!

But enough about us, let’s talk about the BAND. One Ton Dually is a rock and roll band from Reno, NV, singing songs about fast drinking and hard wimmin (yeah, they made that a word). The band describes themselves as a 4-speed good time transmission with top of the line suspension and a powerful engine under the hood. I’d take that for a ride, and you should too.

One Ton Dually has recently played at the Saint and Shea’s, which is to say they get around. If you know what I mean… Like their Facebook page to learn about new show dates and to link to their music.

While you’re waiting for One Ton Dually, be sure to check out the following awesome-sauce events in Reno.

This Friday is Foxy First Friday with host Rory Dowd, featuring Mike Metzger. Apparently Mike is well recommended by many low-life musicians who own guitars. I mean, that’s what the internet has to say and the internet is never wrong. If you want to challenge the internet, or if you just want to hear some great live music, get to Foxy Olive by 9 p.m.  21+ No cover.

Saturday punk bands U.S. Bombs / Abandon Minds / Another Damn Disappointment share the stage at Shea’s. 9 p.m. 21+

If you haven’t heard, Sunday is the new Saturday in Reno. Check out the Violence Creeps / Negative Sex / Murder Dream at the Holland Project. 8 p.m. all ages. $5

At Alturas on the DL, go have an epic good time seeing Johnny Cash tribute Cash’d Out with Cowboy Indian. 21+ 8 p.m. $15 (tickets here)

For all you Burner’s and would be Burners, Monday through Wednesday is the annual city wide party known as The Great Depressurization, presented by our friends at Fresh Bakin’. Decompress and readjust to the default world with excellent entertainment by the likes of Kelly Proud (details here), The Utility Players (details here), and big name DJ’s. The three day event takes place at The Eldorado, Silver Legacy, and Circus Circus in Reno, and MontBleu Resort in South Lake Tahoe. Click through to see the full lineup.

If you need a break from the casino traffic, go to Cargo on Tuesday for Saving Banksy / The Great Bingo Revival at Cargo. See the film, stay for the party. 21+ 8 p.m. no cover

That’s all I’ve got this week and this is where I’ll be. If you have events you think I should go to let me know! I’ll do just about anything once.

There’s no show next week thanks to Labor Day, but we’ll be back on September 11th with Riptide Bandits! Thanks for listening Reno. You’re the best.

Hey kids!

Worst Little Podcast – S6 E18

Todd Ballowe, noted Reno musician, performer and bon vivant, comes by the studios this week, bringing the ever lovely Jole Rector along as well. I’m sure it was swell, but Reverend Rory was not in attendance. Intern X only took two pictures – FAIL!. Nick is playing at Pignic tonight, Thursday 8/4/16 with Loud as Folk. Reverend Rory has Foxy First Friday with Delani White. Go see some stuff.

Roxxy Collie joins us this week on the show. A new Reno rock band, Roxy Collie is a conglomeration of other Reno bands and bring some serious talent to bear. Of course, Mr. “I’m in 8000 Bands” Nick Ramirez is in this latest project on drums. He backs up Steve Barron, Jon Cornell, Pat Rhea and the vocal stylings of the always impressive, Margy Ford.

We drink. We laugh. We tell an awful lot of dick jokes. Actually, no. Well, yes, there are dick jokes, but we didn’t have much time for talk, since the band had to kick our ears’ asses with awesome music. Coincidentally, the band is named after American Orinthologist Roxie Collie Laybourne. Since Nick was in the band, he couldn’t host, so the WLP Webmaster, Lord Stryse stops in to take the third chair. It’s always good to have him here with us in the studio!

Welcome to spring in Reno – pack a heavy coat!

Worst little Podcast S6 E7 – Download link

It’s amazing that we haven’t had them on the show before, but we are happy to bring to you the musical talents of Robert “Bobbo” Clark and Anthony Vairetta of Sil Shoda. Sil Shoda is a Reno rock band that has enjoyed some bit of notoriety in the past decade with their high energy shows and strong musicianship.

While they have been publicly quiet as of late, Sil Shoda has been furiously masturbating recording behind the scenes; they hope to have a few releases hit the airwaves and internet this year, so be sure to keep an eye out for that as well as shows on their Facebook and reverbnation pages. Also – they are just a blast to bullshit with; I really mean it this time when I say that this was one of the most fun shows we’ve ever done.

Speaking of fun shows, don’t forget that this is your last chance to see “Sex, Drugs, Rock and Roll” at Good Luck Macbeth, featuring our very own Nick Ramirez. We get a teaser of the show with him at the top of the episode, so if you like what you year – go get some culture and see the show!

Last to Leave – Still Hanging On – S5 E32

And away we go!

The Worst Little Podcast – S5 E32 – Download Link

Despite playing actively in Reno the entire time we have not been broadcasting, Last to Leave is a whole new side of the scene that the podcast has missed. Skye Evans and Ken Shepherd join us and play some jaw-droppingly awesome music this week. The music is complex and full-bodied, toe-tapping and fun; the lyrics are achingly depressing – even on the ‘happy’ songs. Skye Evans (founder of the band and literally the last to leave Last to Leave) is graduating shortly and will be leaving Reno for northern climes. Bittersweet it is, to see him go, but we wish him well in the future!

Ken Shepherd on the other hand can’t get out of Reno if he tried. Shepard is currently still the bassist for The Whitebulbs and also Busking by Moonlight, a fantastic new indie blues act that you’ll be able to catch at the upcoming OffBeat Festival – this very weekend! You’ll be able to catch Last to Leave’s FINAL PERFORMANCE (that may or may not be true) at the Holland Project on November 17th.

We are all really excited about the OffBeat Festival. If you haven’t heard by now, click the link and listen on the show – this event will be insanely awesome. In order to make it so, legendary Phat Couch will be playing at Jub Jub’s on Friday night, along with Nick Ramirez, Forrest Day, Plastic Caves and Los Pistoleros! And all of this madness will be hosted by the Rev! And that’s just ONE SHOW on ONE NIGHT! This is a 4-day festival with 90+ bands in 13+ venues. We are lucky enough to have Steve Foht, singer for Phat Couch and longtime friend of Nicky visit us on the show. Though currently thriving in Peru, IN as the owner of Boondocks Food & Spirits, Fot was once one of the giants of the Reno music scene, way back in the nineteen-nineties! It’s a pleasure to have him on and will be great to rock out this weekend.

Here it is, for your enjoyment – a clip show! Featuring much of the cast of The Worst Little Podcast, past and present, in the last 200  episodes and some repeat offenders drinking copious amounts of beer and whiskey! In studio we have, your hosts, Thee Reverend Rory Dowd, Mr. Nick Ramirez, Dogwater Dick and Josh Martin, along with our small horde of guests that include Reno musicians and friends of the show: Spencer Kilpatrick, Mikie Haley, Felix Danger,  Myke Read, Rashidul Kader, Zac Curtis, Evan Humphries and a Mystery Guest!

The Bridal Photo – Episode 200

There’s clips from shows going back to the first season and as recently as this 5th one. There are … a lot. We made Rick play jukebox. He’s the only one who wasn’t inebriated and could take notes. There’s a lot of talking and conversation stepping, some rudeness, some love, you take the good, you take the bad, and there you have – AH! Who’s kidding, there’s nothing good about this show. Except the music. Always the Reno music.

Choogin, baybay, choogin!

The Worst Little Podcast – 2015 03 02

I am so conflicted about this episode!!!! First, we have the cast from “Tooth of Crime” on, which is so awesome; second, Jamie hosted the show in its entirety, which is good and bad (good that she can handle it, bat that my job is at stake now); and finally – it’s the last episode ever from beautiful suburban Sparks! What is this world coming to?!?!

Dave Richards

Dave has found something!

Lew Zaumeyer

Lew/Hoss

“Tooth of Crime” is a play written, and then later re-written, by Sam Sheppard. It involves live music, cars and fire. It is dangerous theater. It is a play that has not always been well received. It is a play that may have never been done correctly, even when directed by the author. A small group of actors from Reno believe that they can pull it off like no one has.

Scott Dundas and Jill Marlene

Scott/Chaser and Jill/Becky Lou

Nick Ramirez

Nick/Meera

Director Dave Richards brings most of his cast and the band to the studio with him to talk about the upcoming performances. He is joined by Lew Zaumeyer (Hoss), Jill Marlene (Becky Lou), Scott Dundas (Chaser), Andy Luna (Crow), Nick Ramirez (Meera), Rory Dowd (Rudio Ran) from the cast and also Jeff Done, Pat Mayfield, Dave Masud and Chris Fox from the Reno “Tooth of Crime” band. For a last session, we crammed so many people in that the whole band AND Reverend Rory had to sit in the living room! That’s why Jamie got to host the show! (I knew you were wondering)

For a final episode at the old house, we couldn’t have asked for a better set of guests – some old friends, some brand new to the show. ANd we had fun. We will be taking a one week hiatus so Dogwater Dick can move ye olde studios into Reno! Crazy things are afoot in the neighborhood. Chekkit what’s been happening down the block:

That really hurt.

You know ’em – you love ’em – it’s THE LIVER SCARS!!!! Felix, Nick, Garrett, Todd and Ron form The Liver Scars are in the studio live and with their livers turned up to 11! You know we drink on this show, but this week was like Mardi Gras and St. Patrick’s Day steamrolled into one.I’ll just say that I tried to hold onto some semblance of show flow or control, but with these guys… I think I gave up in the first segment.

Nick – Bass

What can I say about the Liver Scars that wouldn’t be incredibly incriminating? Besides the fact that they truly are one of my favorite bands, ever and currently…. Um…. Felix remained conscious throughout the entirety of the show! Ron has a Napoleon thing going on. Garrett and Milton Berle have a lot in common. Todd gets redfaced REALLY quickly. And, yes, Nick really is just always that spacey.

Garret Donovan - guitar for the Liver Scars, a Reno NV punk rock band, smiling at the camera and squinting his eyes

Garret – Guitar

You will want to check out The Liver Scars on their Facebook page and at their Upcoming show opening up fo D.R.I. at Jub Jub’s! This show is crazy and off the rails and I really don’t remember what happened after the beer boxes came out. (That’s why this post is short.) Whole episode is a bit of a blur. I think a mason jar of whiskey was involved. Shudder.
