An In-Snide Look #6

Fun night for music.  I've missed only a handful of Kolo Bell's open mic nights at Claude and Annie's over the past 5+ years.  Heck, I was a regular back when Rory Connolly of the Great Hookup ran them for the year before that.  It's been a really wild ride.  Over the years that particular open mike has spawned Swig, Black Market Binary, The Dead Squirrels, Coy Koi, Dave Vogt, Megan Hopkins, and a slew of others.  I'm still pushing to get Mike Myers, Ben Myers, and even Kolo Bell himself out into the mainstream.  Whoa!Tiger's Jack Barkley and Ben Brashear of Free Willie Nelson Mandela are regular performers, as are a few other long-time players who are no longer active in the scene. 

Last night we were paid a visit by Parker Anderson, recently of Pick up Park, who played us some of the new stuff he's been developing using loopers and effects pedals.  Also caught the debut of a new band called Negina, which despite a few rough edges obviously knew their way around that post-punk, indie rock genre.  Thoroughly enjoyed both of the newcomers, hoping them come back and keep shaking things up, as the downside of these open mics is that we quickly get complacent hearing the same set from the same people every week.  In a sense, it turns into a social hour for the regulars, and the music is pushed to the "human jukebox" realm while we all sit around and chat.

On the website front, as promised we've got the Chris Burch and Eric Pedigo performances from SCWI split into tracks and added to the mini concert archive.  You'll also hear selections of these exclusive performances throughout the day on Indy In-Tune Radio, so why not leave it dialed in.

Weather blows in tonight.  Making a mad rush home, as Ms. Kileen has reminded me that I have yet to get this week's Rock Show assembled and loaded to the server.  I've got about 2 hours, and it takes about that long if everything goes right.  The rest of you get out and buy your eggs, milk, and bread early.  Then hunker down, make some French toast and be safe.  I'm thinking Saturday will have to be an all-request afternoon.  I know *I* don't want to drive anywhere, so we might as well be your companion while you shovel the driveway or something.  Who wants to put on snow shoes and come play co-host?

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.
