The Worst Little Podcast – S4 E39 <– Download Link
I would Like to begin by reiterating the fact that I, thee Reverend Rory Dowd, am a font of misinformation when I speak. That being said, I hope you enjoy this week’s episode! Aaron Steinmetz, Reno area author and musician joins us this week with his words and tunes! Aaron is a true artist and writer, hermiting himself away to create his art usually, but here he is sharing EXCLUSIVE new works with us and the public!
Despite not playing regularly recently, Aaron plays an original that he wrote just for the show called “Lost and Found”; he also read us us a surprisingly awesome passage called “The Stripping Game” from a new novel; and plays us some tracks from his CD “The New Wilderness”. He kinda does it all folks. Aaron Steinmetz is also the author behind the Sleepy P.I. Trilogy and over on his website, www.aaronsteinmetz.com, he’s also starting a new blog, “My Cat (Is Trying To Kill Me)” which should have the first installment up by the time this publishes. All over the place and an avid listener, Aaron was a lot of fun to have on the show.
That’s enough out of me. Hope to see you out this Friday when I host the First Friday at Foxy Olive with my December Guests: Spike and Jackson!
Thanks for listening!
First: Marianarchy Marianarchy Marianarchy!!!!
More later. Now, onto the show!

Adam Springob joins us this week as a solo artist. He’s been stepping out from above Greg Gilmore’s very small shadow and showcasing his own singing and songwriting. It’s really good stuff. Unfortunately, you won’t hear it!!!! He brought a damn band with him this week. Actually – he brought TWO bands with him to make one giNORmous band called …. Something Or Other. Joining him in the studio are Michelle Belle (guitar – Scarlet Presence), Carter Stellon (drums – Scarlet Presence), Samantha Gates (fiddle), and Greg Gilmore (bass – Kanes NOT Merkin – lets be clear about this: Greg is not in The Merkins. He’s not that good.)
We had a really fun time with these guys – so much fun that Nick and The Rev had to take off before the show was done!!! They’re not even sure what happens yet!!! There is a lot of talking, yelling and chaos – more than usual – really. I’m supposed to take down notes and tease it out here, but I seem to have neglected to do that this week, although there is a really awesome drawing of a polar bear holding a surfboard next to the note “Sam seems so nice – why these a-holes?”.
SO, normally I tell you about the picks for this weekend, right? Well, this week, there is only one show you should concern yourself with (despite what Adam says on the show – srsly, fuck that guy): MARIANARCHY 2013: A BENEFIT FOR DALE KELLAMS!!! Two days, 35 acts, raffles, BBQ, silent auction, monkey juice, and lots of shenanigans!!!! Get your asses to Jub Jub’s Thirst Parlor this weekend, May 17 & 18! starts at 3pm on Friday, 2pm on Saturday!
There will also be a Remembering Dale Kellams show at Jub’s Thursday night with his brother, Doug’s band. Please come down for old footage and good friends. All proceeds of this weekend will go to support his widder and orphan, Heidi and Kenobi.

Welcome to the start of your summer season, Reno!
As I mentioned in last week’s post, Jess Blaze, local promoter and true believer, passed away in her sleep. We start the show with an audio tribute to Jess; we humbly share these memories of a woman we all loved very much. She was also a big part of …..
That’s right! After months and months of teasing it out – IT’S REALLY HERE!!! MARIANARCHY 2012!!!!!!! Friday May 18 and Saturday May 19!!!
It’s one hell of a line up this year, with the reunions of Phat Couch and Gunshot Licker on Friday and Saturday nights, respectively. There’s a raffle and silent auction, Happy-Hour Potluck, BBQ. Admission is whatever you can donate to the cause. This year, the proceeds will go to benefit the familes of Rev. Gary Setzer and Jess Blaze
(who are secretly pissed that they’re missing this show, or so I’m told). The events will be emceed by yours truly, Reverend Rory. Come see me turn into Jerry Lewis over a 48 hour period!!!
Seriously, though – this is probably my favorite event in Reno every year. You should really check it out. Marianarchy is at the cultural heart of Reno and Ground Zero for a lot of the love and camraderie in the Reno music and sart scenes. It is really something special and you should check it out.
Also on the show this week is Reno City Councilman and Sparks-core native, Dave Aiazzi. Dave is a really good friend of Nick’s and a big supporter of our simmering arts scene here in Reno. He also knows how to take a joke
(Thanks in advance for not getting a cease and desist on the picture, Dave). Irma Geddon jumps into the fray with some insightful questions about how people can get things done with the city, what happened to the Occupy Moana thing, and what is up with that airline food? For his part, Dave does not particularly care for the airline chicken plate. I think Dave had something he wanted to talk about, but we all kept badgering him with questions and cutting to the music. It was probably important.
Maybe next time. Ha?
At any rate – Come to MARIANARCHY 2012 at JUB JUB’S THIRST PARLOR! MAY 18 AND 19!!!!
Worst Little Podcast – Episode 20 <—- a milestone! Thanks for listening!
It has been a while! Good to be with you!
We return with a tempered vengance and too much to talk about! Neither Rory nor Nick got to talk about everything they wanted to get to. We are proud to announce a brand new sponsor of the show, STINGRAY TATTOO. Check out the oldest custom tattoo shop in Reno online at www.stingraytattoo.net or their Facebook page. We also recap the events of the past two weekends (Rick-stock and the Block Party), toothaches and plagues, and sadly, the passing of Dogwater Studios’ mascot, Ichabod Speck Spagnola. A fine chihuahua he was, and a longtime member of the Reno scene. Show a little love and pet a dog, bitches.
In studio we have some great friends and a new friend with us. Layla James of Rock 104.5 FM and iamlaylajames (and TV and commercials and all sorts of other cool stuff we’re all jealous of) hangs out with us and films us for her own video blog. She was a blast and welcome to take a chairor call in any time she wants. Unfazed by any and all questions. As opposed to Jackson Truckle of Spike and Jackson who spoke maybe 7 and 1/2 words, aside from singing.
That’s right – on the Internets for the first time EVAR: Spike and Jackson!!! They so old school, they don’t have computers! These stone age rockers throw down a couple of tracks and join in with the (Ever-Evolving) Worst Quiz Ever. Also, join us for our first installment of “What’s Matty Drinking?”, hopefully a brand new segment centered around intoxication. In addition to being a mild-mannered news guy on KOH, Matt is a loyal fan and good buddy. We’ll check back with him next week.
My bow-tie and I wish you adieu!
