Video today form one of my favorite bands, VilaFishburn, playing PodConcert III a little over a year ago. These guys don't play out often enough, so I figured I'd share a little. The full audio of that set is available on our Mini-Concerts page. They first appeared back on Show #011, though it was recorded to be Show #009 and was, for some reason completely forgotten by me, held for over six months before I released it. I distinctly remember it was freezing when the show came out, but when we recorded, it was suffocatingly hot and humid as we camped out next to the railing at what is now Chumley's in Broad Ripple. VilaFishburn had just finished a set at the Rock Lobster's front stage -- yes, they used to feature live music in the front and the back. Crazy, I know. Honestly kids this town used to swing.

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.
