Hello! Welcome back to the Worst Little Podcast. Rory is home with his beautiful new baby (CONGRATS AGAIN!) so Nick, Kim, and Dogwater “Dick in the Back” are holding it down at the studio with our good friends Silver! Well 4/5 of them anyway. They’re here to promote their new EP, Rock’n’Roll is Dead, coming at you June 3rd, and we’re giving you a first listen! Press play to hear it before you can buy it. We’re getting deep with the band this week. There’s TMI, fake meltdowns, and shenanigans that’ll leave you asking “is this podcast public?”

Oh hi, I didn’t see you there! Welcome to the Worst Little Podcast. Your hosts Nick, Kadillac Kim, and Dogwater Dick are here with some fresh faces to the Reno music scene, 33 Black. This week’s podcast has gone country! Yeehaw! Listen up for some new music from these up-and-comers, along with a heavy dose of inappropriate banter. Like we do.

33 Black an alt country band from Reno Nevada doing silly poses for the camera at Dogwater Studios.

33 Black is a very serious band and is made up of Travis and Jeb on vocals and guitar, and Spencer on drums

33 Black was formed back in the day (they never got around to telling us which day exactly) when Jeb and Travis, who were high school sweethearts friends, met Spencer on the internet. But unlike most Craigslist hookups, this one lasted.

Thank’s to 33 Black for being Kim’s reason to get drunk this week! Their next show is in Chico on June 14th but look for local shows soon. As always, stay tuned to the Worst Little Podcast for news about the band, and check them out on iTunes to listen to their two EPs that are out now. We will be following 33 Black with interest and we can’t wait to see where these guys go!

Thanks so much for listening. We’re really glad you’re here. This week Kim has some pretty crazy picks for you. Don’t miss the following:

He’s doing the lords work recording and archiving all this local music for y’all for free, so throw a little money his way. Rick and Jesus are homies so if you help Rick he’ll put a good word in for you. Hell knows we could all use all the help we can get in that area… It has been an absolute pleasure, as always, Reno.

Tune in for fat, sweaty, German brats, botched circumcisions, and punk rock battle wounds (RIP, Alise’s ankle). But MOST IMPORTANTLY, there’s some badass music from one of Reno’s strongest lady musicians.

Hello again, and welcome to the Worst Little Podcast in the world! This week Almond Mocha Music and poet extraordinaire, Elisa Garcia joined us on the show. Listen up as Kim, Kelly, and Elisa take over Dogwater Studios (RV, Rory, Nick, and Dogwater Dick are here too). We’re steering the ship now, and we’ve got beer. Look out. We’ve got Rory’s shitty old poems, Almond Mocha’s sexy chill vibes, and sexy raindrops galore for the lovely Elisa.

RV of Almond Mocha Music relaxes in a chair at Dogwater Studios in Reno, Nevada.

One Million Pounds of Bass – RV aka Motorhome music makes his Worst Little Podcast debut.

Almond Mocha Music is RV, aka Motorhome Music, and Kelly Proud. They describe themselves as fun, exciting, dancey enough to get your feet tapping but still appropriately layers over conversation on a long drive or over a cup of coffee. This new musical journey between these two musicians is a wonderful departure from the norm. Stitch and @motorhomemusic shatter musical expectations with their collaboration, Almond Mocha. Described as “uplifting” and “hopeful music” this step outside of either of their creative norms produces a sound consistently compared to The Postal Service, The Album Leaf and Massive Attack.

Their self titled album “Almond Mocha” will be released in early 2018. Catch Kelly Proud next at the Blue Bird when she opens for former podcast guest and excellent human, Grace Hayes, and Whitney Myer! It’s Kim’s birthday and all she wants for her day is for you to go to this show!

Elisa “It comes out when I drink too much, so hand me another beer.” Garcia

Reno’s slam queen, Elisa, works with the Holland Project producing weekly all ages open poetry nights and produces the quarterly adult themed poetry night, LIT at Night. See the next installment of LIT at Night April 21st at Headquarters Bar.

This weekend is St. Patrick’s day, and as always there’s no shortage of places to get drunk live music to see in Reno. Here’s Kim’s picks:

Friday – Silver | Rigorous Proof at Shea’s let’s get Sheasted. 9PM 21+ $5/8

Saturday – Head to Shea’s for St. Patrick’s night to see Hellbound Glory/ Deadly Gallows/ Pink Awful open all day!

Sunday – The Regrettes w/ Mt. Eddy, Basha at the Holland Project 7PM. All ages.

Beyond – Next Tuesday check out Roxxy Collie / Bearchild / Retirement / Basement Tapes at the Saint. 7PM 21+ $5

Wednesday the 21st head over to Pignic to see Stelth Ulvang (of the Lumineers) / Bat Country / The Bannetons / Gina Rose 7:30PM 21+
