Show #021: Shadyside Allstars

This is the first of seven shows recorded on September 15th at the Kammy's Kause benefit, and as I explained in the outrobabble, it's a long one. Unfortunately, there was a lot of great music, one hilarious interview, and a lot of supplemental material to cover, and I would rather go long than cut any of that great stuff out. I promise, the rest of this series will be back in our 45-60 minute format.

The Shadyside Allstars are a group of virtuoso musicians who play a very tight style of improvisational, "jam band" music. As such, they have built a huge following not only here in Indianapolis, but also around the rest of the midwest where they regularly play small and large venues as well as festivals.

As a further word of warning, portions of this podcast are probably not suitable for more sensitive ears ... I don't think it's quite as potentially offensive as, say, the average interview with The Dirty Third ... but certainly it's somewhere between PG-13 and R, hence the explicit tag -- and the disclaimer we stuck at the end of the interview. Either way, you have been warned.

Important links from the show:

  • The Shadyside Allstars can be found on the Interet here: MySpace / Web Site
  • Additional tracks from the band not included on this podcast are available in the media section on their web site.
  • For those of you who don't want to dive in dumpsters outside a Goodwill store looking for "Head" (or for those of you who wondered what the hell we were taking about), you can actually purchase "Head" here. Remember: "Head" is officially endorsed by the Shadyside Allstars as a road-tested source of supplemental revenue equal to or greater than standard musician scale wages.
  • And as with all of these seven shows, we need to thank the following people:

Solicitations and Submissions

Solicitations for blog posts can be made by sending and email to "blog -at- indyintune -dot- com" and should follow these guidelines:

  • Local (Indianapolis-based) acts always have priority.
  • Visisting acts playing a bill with one or more local acts are also considered.
  • We generally don't like to repeat content found on other sites. If your request already has a lot of coverage on other sites, it will be considered low-priority unless you can give us an exclusive angle.
  • For obvious reasons, we don't do solicited album reviews, though we do appreciate you letting us know when you have a new release. Consider coming in and talking about the album yourself live on the air or a podcast.
  • All of our staff writers are unpaid enthusiasts. All requests for blog posts are entirely at their descretion.
  • As such, they generally need a lot of lead-time to put something out -- we're talking weeks of lead time, not hours.
  • That said, individual authors have full authority to ignore the following guidelines and write whatever they want ... if you can convince them to.
  • In addition, feel free to write your own post and submit it for posting as a "guest blogger." Those almost always get accepted.
  • Finally, regional or national acts submitting without meeting the above guidelines are generally ignored. We're not trying to be dicks, but if you send us a generic form-letter with your press release, and it doesn't even remotely concern a local artist or event, then you're not part of our core focus.
