This week we have the talented AF dudes from Reno metal-core band, Salythian. These Reno natives laid some serious rock and roll on us here at Dogwater Studio. Not only are they seriously accomplished musicians, they’re social media wizards. Listen up to hear how they do the thing they do.
This mostly instrumental trio is made up of Amar Barboza- (Drums), Tell Gresko- (Bass), and Dawson Copeland- (Guitar).
Thanks to the band for being on the show! We had a great time interviewing you three and we’ll be looking out for your upcoming shows. Follow them on Facebook so you can too! Salythian rocks. Literally.
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. There are some pretty sweet rewards, but really, the only reward I need is HQ staying open so I can see more rad shows like Saturday night’s.
This week your to do list includes some kick ass shows, and one incredibly bizarre event staring Cory Feldman. Weren’t expecting that, were ya… Check out my picks for the week:

Thankfully we’re not burning and we’re not flooding! Our hearts go out to everyone affected by the recent natural disasters. We love you. This week we’re joined by JUST Rory and Rick because they told me not to come in. It’s okay because I really *was* scissoring the drummer from SWIGS. You guys were all spot on. ANYWAY! Y’all are in for some great instrumental surf punk, some talk about old naked Satanists, and jokes about me (Kadillac Kim, in case you’re not following along) hooking up with our podcast guests!

As fun as it is to talk about incest and Satanism, we actually have a band here, so let’s get into some music.
Riptide Bandits have been around for a “really long time”, according to band members. They are so legendary they don’t even need to know when they formed. It is as if they always existed. They might be vampires.

We have a full house of hosts tonight including a new face, Kadillac Kim (that’s me, hello). Our guest tonight is award winning disabled athlete, Trevor Snowden. Snowden’s larger than life, hope-filled presence is almost too big for the studio. In 1997, Trevor was preparing for a career in extreme snowboarding when he suffered a catastrophic spinal injury that left him paralyzed from the waist down. Trevor pulls no punches when talking about how his injury has affected his life. In addition to being an athlete, he is an inventor, video game designer, and rapper. Trevor’s full-length album, The Wheelchair Extraordinaire, is available on iTunes. Listen in for a yet to be released track and Worst Little Podcast exclusive from Trevor and learn about what he has in the works or just where to find him singing karaoke.
Over the years Snowden became increasingly unhappy with the standard wheelchairs insurance provided so he invented his own custom wheelchair specifically designed to provide athletes to stay active. This wheelchair is now known as the Trevair. Trevor’s invention has helped him launch a new off- roading sport, wheelchair supercross. Snowden holds the world record for jumping 55ft over cars in a wheelchair and his stunts have been featured in Ripley’s Believe It or Not.
Thanks to Trevor Snowden for being on the show and for sharing his story!
Holy Snopes, you have to be joking me ass with all this good music here in Remo, Sriracha! This week in Reno you will see your’s truly at Pignic Thursday night for outlaw Americana rockers The Ghost Town Rebellion. That night I’ll also zip over to the Saint to support Redfield Clipper/Bazooka Zac/The Lique for some funk and live hip-hop. Friday I’ll see you at The Saint for the Riptide Bandits homecoming show. Starting at 8 see them with awesome reno bands Basement Tapes and Swigs. Surf punk! Saturday at the Loving Cup is Gatheist and Hate Recorder. Clint from Elephent Rifle says their the best band in America. Do with that info what you will… I’ll see you this weekend, Reno!
As always, thanks for listening and for supporting your local music scene.
Oh, and happy pride.
And now, boys and girls, here’s a podcast.
If you’re a loyal listener you hay have heard last week that we were going to have the guys from Big Remote in this week. Unfortunately, there was a death in the family of one of the members and we’re postphoning the show with them. Much love to Foreman, Brown and Dixon families from all of us at the Worst Little Podcast in the World. Don’t fret though – they’ll be on soon. They can’t afford NOT to be on the most popular local music podcast in Reno.
Instead we get Felix. Yeah, that’s right, Felix Polanski. *facepalm* It was a last minute thing; I know, I’m sorry. To balance that out we also have Jess from Cherrybear Records and Andy 86 from The Riptide Bandits LOS PISTOLEROS! Even though the rest of the Pistols couldn’t make it on short notice, Andy graciously let us play a couple fo tracks from their upcoming CD release. (It will be out just as soon as their singer gets out of the slammer.)
Also, we finally play the tapes from the Undiscovered 2011 show. Rory recorded a brief interview with Los Pistoleros in the garage, right as they found out Felix is a dummy when he’s loaded. We also have an interview with a very drunk Felix AFTER a real disaster was avoided. He’s such a jerk. Felix and Andy publicly bury the hatchet for your entertainment!
Chewie’s back – not much to say except for his impeccably placed one-liners, as usual. This whole ‘Return of Chewbacca’ thing is actually starting to get old. But, whatever. It’s good to have the ol’ wookie back in town. We’re looking forward to him sticking around for the rest of the year.
We’ve got news, events and the Worst Little Quiz too. Can Andy unseat our current recordholder, Layla James? Listen in and find out!
Thanks for listening.
