Spencer has been playing as JUST IN-Beaver for about two years. When Spencer isn’t playing with his other band, A Wormhole Could Kill Us All, he keeps audiences laughing nervously while he sings us acoustic songs about boobs and bath salts. Lucca G also plays in A Wormhole Could Kill us All, as well as Reno’s most sexual band, Grimedog. Click through to follow all the bands on Facebook and learn where to see them next!

Also here is the Rhino! He’s been a DJ in Reno since forever and recently he’s parlayed that career into the charity work he is here talking with us about this week. If you’re not caught up, Rhino has been working on bringing his Golden Gate art car and Silent Disco to sick kids everywhere by touring to children’s hospitals. The Rhino is for the children, y’all. We’re happy to get the word out about his art car land speed record and fundraising activities for this amazing project. We will keep our listeners updated about future events!

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:

Thursday – LAF: Wolf Creek Boys/Mason Frey/Delani White/Aaron Acquafondata Loud As Folk is back this week at Pignic! 21+ 8PM No Cover

Friday – 24HR MakeAThon – Don’t miss this Generator membership drive and fundraiser. 30+ workshops, 20+ performances, movies, beer, burlesque, and drag bingo!

If you’re a fan of the show please consider donating to our Patreon so we can reimburse Rick for all he does for Reno music. 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 next week for local singer-songwriter Joni Blinman. Remember, life is short and we love you.

“Life is pain, highness. Anyone who says differently is selling something.” – The Dread Pirate Roberts

The Worst Little Podcast – S5 E24

It’s that frantic time of year in Reno, when all the summer festivals are packed in on top of one another, all the Burners return home from their sojourn on The Playa and the weather goes back to being schizophrenic. I stay home a lot.But that just gives me more time to catch up on all the old podcasts as we roll up into EPISODE 200 in just a few weeks! We are really stoked that we’ve been around this long and we get all the support we do from you unresponsive listeners. I love you.

Ken McKim

This week on the show we are joined by Ken McKim, a Reno-area Chronic Illness Advocate and long-time friend of Dogwater Dick. Ken’s goal as an advocate is to help non-sufferers understand the kind of long term pain and discomfort that chronic illness patients routinely, even daily,  go through. Many of these pain symptoms are brushed off or downplayed by people who don’t have these conditions with a “If I can’t see it, it’s not real,” attitude. These are documented and real conditions that are not ‘just in their heads’ that include ailments like: Crohn’s Disease, Lupus, Depression, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), Fibromyalgia and more.

In order to bring understanding, to the public, to friends, to politicians and even spouses, Ken McKim has made a few series of videos, creating analogies and comparisons in real terms the average idiot, like myself layperson can understand. It’s a noble and daunting undertaking, but if you are interested in finding out more about Ken Mckim’s work, please visit his website at www.dontpunishpain.com where his 17-video series is available for free.  He is also the creator of the 4-part series, “Dear Healthy People,” available on YouTube.

It’s a pretty heavy subject, so that’s why we also brought back by popular demand (mostly his)….

Spike McGuire smiling cajolingly at the camera over his guitar

Hey…

 

…the awesome Spike McGuire! Our last episode with Spike had some issues and never was properly released, so he’s back again with another set of toe tappers. Spike McGuire is a folk/Americana singer/songwriter (FASS) from Reno NV and frontman for Six Mile Station. Spike is still killing it all over the West Coast, but never fails to be back in Reno for the Loud As Folk, a long running Reno music series held on the First Thursday of every month. It’s good to have Spike in here this week. He’s always a treat and DAMN! can he strum on a guitar.

 

Thanks for Listening!

This is a great episode. We had a lot of fun with Six Mile Station promoting their upcoming shows. But there is a special treat! Something you have to listen to. See what Six Mile Station had in store for Thee Reverend Rory and Chewie.

Just Nick Ramirez wasn’t able to make it – he was too busy rocking out with his band, The Liver Scars, and Cadaver Dogs down at the always entertaining Shea’s Tavern. Killer time – and you probably missed it!

In other news, comedian Justin Rupple will be returning to the Reno Tahoe Comedy Club in the Pioneer Underground this weekend. Please check him out – funny guy, funny impressions, funny lookin’. Chewie is with us again, but relegated to the back room because of the awesome of Six Mile Station. The Rev is clueless, Nick the voice of reason, and Dogwater Dick: still gay.

Worst Little Podcast – S2 E26

It’s that time of year again – Dust Season. Welcome back, Burners.

Spike McGuire: HEY, YOU GUUUUUUUUYS!!!!!

 

We were supposed to have this new kick-ass band for you this week, but they’ve already lost a drummer, so instead we just got a lead singer: Mr. Spike McGuire! Spike’s been on the show before and is a busy man around town. He heads up the monthly Loud As Folk series at The Alley in Sparks and is generally playing music somewhere on any given week. He regales us with some tales of Chicago, music, anarchy and sex bets. That’s right sex bets. Just ask Aric Shapiro! (who is a huge… pimp, btw, ladies). Spike also brought along a friend of his, a bona-fide actor from LA that we like to call Hollywood Brad!

Hollywood Brad: He’s just like a Ken doll, except anatomically correct and not made of plastic.

At first, it seemed as if the show was a little weak and directionless (Rory hadn’t been drinking much yet). But once Hollywood Brad got a 6-pack under his 6-pack, the stories started rolling on ot. One of the LONGEST Worst Little Quizzes ever ebcause of that. But it’s all good – a really good quiz. You can hear them jockeying for positions in Rick’s bed . Naughty boys. Rory also pans a touring act that he caught next week and Nick of course has details about a bunch of shows he’s paying in. What is this? Some kind of personal aggrandizement center? Oh, wait…

Anyway, thanks for listening!
