Hope you enjoyed your Groundhog’s Day! More on that later. Joining us once again are the maniacal talents of Small Drawings, a Reno NV rock duo. Drew Ernhout (vocals and guitar) and Mike Smalski (drums) sat down with us again, now that they have been salted – nay! After THEY have salted the town and the scene! A band firmly in their own niche and corner, Small Drawings has gotten to share stages with some of the best bands in Reno and are carving out their own following.
Before we get sown and dirty with Small Drawings, we put in a call to our good friends, KARMA, who are out on the road on their big big 2015 US Tour. Coincidentally enough, they happened to be in Lafayette, Louisiana, hanging out at Heffe’s Saloon, a fine fine establishment run by Mitch, a buddy of the Reverend’s. They say the bar was good. We’ll have to wait to hear what the bar thinks about them.
OK – really – Mike is awesome – just listen to the quiz; but Drew, Drew is a fucking lunatic. He’s the kid that eats paste and then turns it into a poignant diorama about the translation of the color blue into ham. You can catch all their insanity at a show this weekend. Teaming up with Man Downstream and The Tides, Small Drawings will be playing a show at Holland Project this Friday night at 8pm. That is a sick and twisted and AWESOME lineup. Unfortunately, that conflicts with First Friday with Reverend Rory at the Foxy Olive, featuring Paul Allen, noted Reno recluse. You should go to that.
Anyways, thanks for listening.

It’s Intern Week here on the Worst Little Podcast, introducing myself (Sam, the Intern) on the production end of things and the lovely Jamie Woodham, handling general, top secret podcast-ey stuff. She joins us on the show this week along with The Tides. The Tides (not the laundry detergent) are a new(ish) rock/punk band, and they don’t even really DO laundry! At the heart of the group, and back on the show with us, is the one and only Oliver Hull (guitar/vocals).
But wait, there’s more! Oliver is joined by his two devilishly handsome friends, Fred Dai (bass) and Derek Todd (drums). The Tides have been playing together for a while, but only recently emerged from a 6 month hiatus due to Oliver’s punk-like neck breakage. Listen now to find out how he did it!
In other news, Evil Dead the Musical is going fabulously, Nick also doesn’t do laundry, and Rikku found herself grounded *gasp* after a series of very big no-no’s.
You can find this steamy trio on their website or on Facebook. Their next show is not until Marianarchy, but stay tuned with them for any yet-to-be-announced shows!
Thanks for Listening
Hey Everybody! Your old pal, Super Grover here! Just kidding it’s only me.
New Reno garage band, The Tides, take a visit with us today. Featuring Kevin Kentera on drums, Brian Healy on bass and Oliver Hull on lead guitar and vocals, The Tides ripped through the studio like a howling wolf. Primal screams and solid rock melodies will get you out of your seat and have you howling along with them. I really like these new guys on the scene.
We also have a fun phone call from Bobby Slayton again. The Pitbull of Comedy bites into Reverend Rory and just destroys him in front of a live studio audience! Fun times… Anyway, Bobby is also appearing at The Pioneer Underground this Friday and Saturday, June 21 & 22.
Nick is out this week with a bad back (get better soon buddy) so none other than the MIGHTY Kodiak, Dakota Joe steps in to take his place. This is a new Kodiak, subdued, in shape and sober. Kinda weird, but a change for the better…. we think…

Thursday, 6/20 – Mr Nick Ramirez at Adopt a Singer Songwriter (ASS!) at the Studio on 4th, 8pm
Friday, 6/21 – BOBBY SLAYTON at the Pioneer Underground, 8p
