One Ton Dually
One Ton Dually – Rise of the Oldpunks – S12 E2
Continuing in our series of bands who have kept it going through the long winter, we welcome back One Ton Dually! Yes, this is kinda the ‘house band’ (in that Nick and Rory are in it), but we haven’t had them on in four and a half years, so we thought we’d check in and see if they’ve gotten any better.
One Ton Dually is Thee Reverend Rory Dowd (bass, vocals), Nick Ramirez (drums, vocals), Spike Richie (guitar, vocals), and Jack Soft (guitar). They’ve switched the lineup and added some more songs – we get treated to a whole lineup of new songs this episode. As Dogwater Dick quips, they’ve embraced the sloppy punk rock band inside.
They are hungry for Reno rock and roll shows and despite some reschedulings due to the ongoing pandemic (committed to being safe these fellows are), they are excited to invite you to their first show in 2022 at The Matador with Thee Living Daylights and Triflin’ Bitches. It should be a train wreck of a good time.
Thanks For Listening!

In other news, I would like to give a shout out to Headquarters Bar and to the bands that played Saturday night to raise money for the victims of the Las Vegas shooting. SWIGS, One Ton Dually, and Riptide Bandits slayed that room and raised $360. If you haven’t visited Headquarters yet, get your tail down there. It is Reno As Fuck in the best way. If you’re inclined to help your fellow Renoites make downtown greater than ever, head over to their fundraiser page.

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

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.
PhÆDRx – Solo Machinations – S7 E17
Greetings, weary travellers!
The Worst Little Podcast in the World – S7 E16 – Download Link
This week we’re introducing you to a Reno musician who is off the beaten path. PhÆDRx is the project, Dennis is his name. Combining strong songwriting skills and musical styles from many eras and influences, PhÆDRx is a musical exploration of metaphysical themes. Dennis composes and writes all of these original works; what’s even more impressive is that he also plays all the parts himself, from strings to drums to synth and the ol’ mouth harp. Many of the songs you will hear on the show are acoustic versions of fully produced songs that are available on the website.
Though soft-spoken, Dennis has an alluring voice and strong storytelling skills. Classic bait-and-switch. Enjoy the tunes and check out the sites. We hope to see PhÆDRx playing out at Reno venues soon this summer. Keep an eye out for his album “Always Look Up”, releasing later this summer.
Hope to see you all out at the shows this weekend! On the Theater Front, we have STUPID FUCKING BIRD closing it’s run at Bruka, Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind at RLT and The Comedy of Errors at the Lear. On the music side, Sonic Mass at 40 Mile on Friday and the boys in One Ton Dually will be opening up for Three Rounds on Saturday.
Thanks for Listening!
