Sometimes, even jaded assholes get surprised, like this week, on the show. I am so delighted to introduce to our listening audience The Will Shamberger Band of Fallon, NV (not that there’s anything wrong with that). I was mostly surprised because I was expecting a solo, not a new bunch of contenders.
Will Shamberger, Jesse Morrow, Charlie Gomes and Stone Seuss are the lions to the Voltron that is a tight rock quartet, blasting out a little funk and psychedelic vibes. They have a big sound and big personalities – it is quite the memorable quiz this week. (spoiler: Charlie cheats since he’s taken it before.)
They’ve got some shows coming up in the next couple weeks – August 12th at Holland Project, and, booked right here on this show , August 13th at Alturas with WLP’s own One Ton Dually and Quitter, from Carson City.
You can connect with them, just about everywhere music is published and consumed, even Bandcamp.

Hello and welcome back to Reno’s Best Worst Little Podcast! This week we’re here with everyone’s favorite rock and roll band, Silver! They’re previewing their new EP, Let’s Talk Tomorrow About Last Night, and talking about their show happening on October 25th at the Pioneer Underground. Press play to hear some rad music from Silver, Travis Hayes (SF), and Reno’s own Buffalo Moses!
Formed in 2016, Silver describes themselves as a callback to great American Rock’n’Roll. With each member having varying backgrounds in folk, country, rock, punk, blues, and pop, a wide array of styles and influences come to play and color their diverse sound. Silver is Jeff Knight (drums), Brendon Lund (bass), Adam Landis (keys), Josh Kisor (lead guitar), Greg Gilmore (vocals, guitar).
Silver has released three music videos to date off their new EP, with another being released Monday, October 21st. View those videos and learn more about the band here! We’ll see you at the Pioneer Underground October 25th for Silver, Travis Hayes, and Buffalo Moses, hosted by Spike McGuire.
Thanks to Silver for hanging out! We’re back next week with Eddie and the Subtitles!
Get up and dance for this, mang!

Gobble Gobble, Rabbit Rabbit and Ho Ho Ho, my friends!! We hope your holiday season has started with a blast – or a shock! We have The Electric, a Reno NV rock band, in the studio with us this week. They are, in a word, electrifying! Billy Gun fronts the band on guitar with a tremendous voice behind his lyrics. He is backed by Darin Goslar, churning out the bass notes, and Brooklyn Reiff holding down the drums.
The Electric has been around in Reno for a while, but have not played a lot of local shows, preferring to build their fan base in far off places like California. Most recently though, you may have caught them in Reno during the OffBeat Festival at the beginning of November. They are laying low for the winter, while Brooklyn has a surgery after a gnarly accident, but The Electric will be hitting Reno hard come the beginning of 2016 with their debut album, which is in mastering currently.
These guys were a hell of a lot of fun and have a lot of stories, only some of which we actually recorded. Can’t wait to see them in action again in front of a live audience, rather than just us dumbfucks.
If you are out and about this weekend, please don’t forget to come by Jub Jub’s for Marianarchy Winterball 2015: A Benefit for Eva Yellowleaf. Eva is a dear sister to the Jub’s family and the WLP family, and has been suffering from seizure since a head injury over a year ago. She means a lot to us and so it would mean a lot to us if you could stop by, enjoy some drinks and misc, and throw a couple bucks her way! It’s all the regular Marianarchy shenanigans over Dec 4th and 5th! You know your holidays aren’t complete without a little Marianarchy.
Thanks for listening!
Is there a such thing as post post rock?
Hey everybody! It’s a fantastic week here on The Worst Little Podcast, well for most of us. Dogwater Dick got some bad news this week – very distressing, but nothing permanent – listen in the first five minutes to find out why!?! Mark Earnest says, “If you can make it through the first seven minutes, you’re a braver man than I!” Mark is the lead singer and guitar player for Vague Choir. You remember Mark, right? Old friend of the show from the first season!
Mark is joined by his soulmates, Marcus Mayhall (bass) and Jason Thomas (drums). Contrary to
what Reverend Rory thought popular belief, Marcus and Jason have never appeared on the show! Yet another Worst Little Podcast First! Which is funny since we bring you another Worst Little Podcast EXCLUSIVE! Vague Choir’s first set is some previously unrecorded (released?) songs that didn’t make it to their first album.
Speaking of albums, if you are in a local band, don’t forget to bring copies of your album to Discology, the final real record store in Reno. They want to have a large and vibrant local music section, but can’t do it until enterprising young musicians like yourselves stop by and drop off some merch! Support local music and local business all in one fell swoop!
Vague Choir does have a show happening this Saturday, October 11 at Monolith Bar, with out-of-towners Fortune Club and dj Tigerbunny. Please check these badasses out in person.
And as always, Thanks for Listening.
