Weapons of Mass Creation
You can’t keep a good band down and no Reno band epitomizes that made-up saying better than our guests this week, Weapons of Mass Creation. You can’t call it a comeback, because they’ve been here for many years (you can’t call it a plagarism, because it’s altered a bit.).
We get to talk to them about the ever-ongoing next album, getting closer and closer to completion. We start the musical segments of the show, with a special look at Joe Atack’s solo project. Pan clues us into what he’s been up to as Reno’s current poet laureate (you can catch monthly him at Sierra Arts in the historic downtown Artists’ Lofts). We also get an update on many things theater, including Good Luck MacBeth, GhostLight TV and Dancers and Bands (featuring One Ton Dually and Fanci Valle on the most recent episode)
It’s a good fun show. Stay safe and fight the power.
Thanks for listening.
Hello and welcome to another episode of your least favorite podcast! This week we have newcomers Late For Rent in the studio. We had the best time hanging out with Elleanor, Travis, and Michael this week. DAMN were they good. Listen up to hear some minds actually being blown, some faces being melted, and to hear what’s coming up for the excellent folks who are Late For Rent. We’ve got deep, nerdy secrets, a cameo from a certain special former intern, and some kick ass storage unit metal.
Late For Rent knows their rock & roll, channeling bands like Cracker, Pavement, Fugazi, and Rush. I highly recommend seeing them live ASAP. Late For Rent is Elleanor Burke – Guitar, Vocals, Production/Engineering, Travis Rubio – Bass, Michael Maxwell – Drums.
Thanks so much to Late For Rent for spending their Monday night with us. We can’t wait to see where they go from here!

Heyo, Reno! At first I wasn’t in the mood to write this blog but I’ve had like half a bottle of wine and I’ve been watching videos of baby goats in pajamas so…. let’s do this! *two hours later* Do you guys even know how many cute baby animal compilations there are on the internet? Do you?! I thought the internet was for porn and publishing terrible music podcasts. I was wrong. Seriously, check out these baby owls. I mean come on…
ANYWAY! I’m here to do the thing with Qarin (pronounced car-in) this week! These guys were so talented and entertaining. Listen up for deviants, dick jokes, and of course, METAL.
Qarin is made up of Diva – Vocals, Yo-yo – Vocals/Bass, Dizzle – Guitar, Sancho – Guitar, and Poundcake – Percussion.
Thanks a bunch for being with us this week, Qarin. You guys are the real deal and you’re also super funny and hella nice. I hope I’m not ruining your reputations right now or anything. MAKE SURE you go to Jub Jub’s Friday night to see Qarin’s first show since some major shit went down with the band. Celebrate, wear a costume, and save a few bucks for a beer! I’ll leave you with an eloquent toast from the band, “we’ll fuck ’em standing, we’ll fuck ’em lying, if they had wings we’d fuck ’em flying, and when she’s dead and long forgotten, we’ll dig her up and fuck her rotten. Sorry, not sorry.
Holy Snopes, this next week is packed with awesome shit, Reno. Here’s your to-do list. Go do a thing. Then tell me about it. Share a photo to the Worst Little Podcast page or just send it to me, Kadillac Kim, on Facebook. I’ll give you a prize or a cookie, and Adam (the bass player) will give you a free handy.

Also this Saturday you can catch touring folk musician Liam Kyle Cahil at Ceol starting at 8. Marianarchy day one lineup has been announced. Check out the Facebook event for details!
Thanks for listening!
Sometimes, the guests really bring it and we can just sit back and laugh.
After a long and exhausting conversation about Marianarchy 2012 Mallory Mishler joins us in studio to play some songs and talk about her upcoming exhibit at the Reno Art Works. She is a triple threat – one of the top realism artists in town, a skilled musician and a fucking awesome lyricist! Great – next thing you know she’s gonna have a podcast or something. Her show, “Stubborn Works – Something From the Deep ‘It’s a Black Thing'”, will open sometime in the first week of June and the closing reception is going to be on Sunday June 28th.
We also have a great phone call from Reno based comedian, Lizzie Keith. She was the host of the Reno Tahoe Comedy Semifinals last week and is a pretty active performer and aerobics instuctor. We think she’s hot. She says she’s a hot lesbian, but we’ll have to get her in studio sometime to verify… if y’all don’t mind. Really though, she was funny right out the gate. I think we have maybe made a new friend – a contender for the coveted third chair of Chewie?
Also in studio with us were the artistic and musical talents of Aric Shapiro and Pan from Reno Art Works and Weapons of Mass Creation. We’ll have WMC on the show a little later in the summer, but today they were here to talk about RAW. It is a great artists’ space on Dickerson Row, the unofficial home of Reno’s visual art community. RAW however embraces all artists, from performers and writers to more traditional definitions like painters and sculptors. RAW hosts a weekly community art night – fun for the family and you might just pick up a new skill or simply learn a trick or two. All kinds of art are open for exploration! Lots of fun.
Other Topics This Week: Why Elephant Rifle hates the Reverend Rory now, divorce (sorta), the ‘other’ RAW and hot girls belching.
At any rate – thanks for listening, o constant listener!
