On the podcast "Worst Gig Ever," Geoff Garlock (Orchid, Panthers, the Year Is One, Low Estate, UCB Theatre) wallows in the crapulance of what it takes to be a musician in this world, with different guests sharing their own hilarious horror stories every week. In its original incarnation, the podcast ran for 100 episodes, give or take, with Garlock joined by co-host Mike Pace; in 2014, they called it a day, but now Revolver has resurrected the show. On this episode, Metalocalypse mastermind, virtuosic shredder and gut-busting comedian Brendon Small shares an awkward tale about bombing a guitar contest, discusses how comedy and songwriting are similar and opens up about his background in both. Get ready to laugh ... and cringe.
