An In-Snide Look #13

Kolo Bell's open mic tonight, as is standard operating procedure every Wednesday night.  Great time as always hanging out with the usual crew, despite some dalliances into "heavy topics" and the end that I just have to avoid any time they come up.  Thoroughly enjoyable performance this evening from Danielle Clashman, who shows up once a month or so and wows the crowd with what she's been working on.  Reminded me that I have a performance of hers she did for us as part of Monday Night Live #7, I promise to get that out soon, assuming it's not on the "lost hard drive" (Tangent: Fuck Western Digital).  The world really needs to hear this girl.

Got in an interesting conversation with Brandon Cannon, as usually happens when we drink.  New years is coming up, so it's probably about time to start planning what the big initiative next year is going to be.  He's got some really cool plans for Shine that I think will be great.  I have slightly loftier plans, which I never seem to move on.  There's always the pipe dream of the "Indy Overseas" European band exchange.  I have the bands and venues lined up, or at least lining them up is trivial compared to the $50K it will take to fund the idea.  There's a fledgling idea for a corporate version of Indy In-Tune Radio to bring local music to local businesses and put muzac/ASCAP out of business.  That one is easily doable anyway.  There's the coffee table book of Indianapolis Music I've been talking about for five years now, not to mention the novel I've been formulating for the past couple of years.  Oh, and I really think I need an old-fashioned "radio stunt" to draw attention to what we're trying to do here.  Maybe something as simple as a marathon broadcast for chartity, or maybe something extreme like broadcasting from on top of a telephone pole in my underwear in the dead of winter.  Who knows?  So many crazy new ideas for injecting a little life and attention into the music scene, but usually it's the drunken spur of the moment ones, like starting a local music radio station, that I end up just winging for fun, even though they're slightly more complex than the one's I've got pages of notes on.

I could probably even pull of more than one of those hair-brianed schemes if anybody wants to collaborate on one of them, or maybe someone out there has a new idea that I haven't even considered yet.  I'm willing to entertain suggestions here.  Hit me up.  I don't want to sit around freezing my ass off in January being completely bored, do I?  I'm willing to try just about anything as long as it's legal and hasn't been tried before.  What are your thoughts?

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.
