Reno women in music
Welcome to this weeks Worst Little Podcast! It’s our last week of our Women’s March shows. It’s been a pleasure to bring you these four shows showcasing strong female voices in Reno music. This week we have the one and only Rachael McElhiney of Failure Machine and Buster Blue, and the legendary Mikie Shame of the Shames, Eddie and the Subtitles, and more! We’re asking these bad ass ladies a slew of questions and listening to some amazing tunes! Press play now!
Rachael and Mikie are both powerhouses with lots of history in the music scene in Reno. Rachael just got back from a small tour surrounding her appearance with Failure Machine at Treefort Music Fest in Boise. Mikie has been singing and playing bass in Reno since 2002 and continues to be a vital member of the punk scene, with her most recent shows being with Eddie and the Subtitles.
Both ladies have some really cool shows coming up. Rachael is performing solo at the Loud As Folk 7 Year Anniversary festival at Pignic, Saturday April 7th. Mikie is playing with the Subtitles April 13th for Debauch-a-Reno, the Sticker Guy 25th anniversary, at Jub Jub’s! We couldn’t be more excited for those shows!
Thanks so much to Rachael and Mikie for spending their Monday night with us. I for one feel pretty honored to spend time with these rad humans!

Be sure to keep your eyes open for Marianarchy updates. Lineup is coming soon! Pro tip: get your tickets for Larry and His Flask NOW. These tickets will sell out and we don’t want you to miss any of the fun at the Jub Jub’s Marianarchy weekend! Gremfest updates will be rolled out as soon as I have those, too.
WLP is looking for raffle donations for this May’s Marianarchy, the biannual celebration of our departed friend and patron saint of Reno Music, Marrianne Sota. This year we are raising money for our friend and Reno local Brian Smith. Brian recently suffered a heart attack and could use some community love. Hit any of us at the podcast up if you have a donation!
Thanks for listening, Reno! We’re pretty humbled by your ongoing support, shares, likes, and comments. If you have an event or band you would like us to promote give us a holler! If you would like to help us pay the taxes and stuff, head over to our Patreon. We are committed to recording and archiving Reno music like we have for the last 7 years but we could use your help! Even a couple of bucks is rad! We are taking next week off so Rick can chill with Jesus and the Easter Bunny, but we will be back April 9th with Alphabet Cult!
