Show #014: The Dirty Third

I could go on record saying that I struggled for a while over what to do about this week's show. That would be a lie, however.

On one hand, I freely admit that some of the language, actions, and stories from this interview are completely inappropriate for children and may even be offensive to many adults. Yes I know that some of you regular listeners have a low tolerance for the type of humor that is prevalent in this week's show. I am not insensitive to this -- hence the repeated warnings. I even admit that it would have been relatively easy to cut the seven or eight most potentially-offensive minutes out of the interview and "bleep" some of the harsher language.

On the other hand, this is easily the most fun I've ever had recording a podcast.

A few lessons learned from the evening:

  1. Jager tastes deceptively like candy ... but it isn't. It's more like "evil cough syrup."
  2. Jager will make you drunk-text your ex-girlfriend at 3:00 AM, and the results will not be pleasant.
  3. When buying The Dirty Third a round of "whatever they're drinking," be careful: There are five of them (plus you), and whatever that Jager-mixed concoction is, it costs eight-bucks a shot. (It's really tasty though.)
  4. When I detox from this encounter, I will definitely be asking Five 'Til Dawn to do an interview.

Links referenced in the show:

  • The Dirty Third can be found here: MySpace.
  • Their latest CD, Songs for the Living, is available from CD Baby.
  • They have also donated a copy of that CD to be given away to one lucky listener. You can enter to win it by filling out our contest form.
  • I also neglected to remind you that you still have a few weeks to enter to win CD's from Jenn Cristy, Vilafishburn and Great Scott!
  • Ray Ruiz (Pronounced "Rooz," and not "Rooweez" -- my mistake during the show) was formerly a guest on Show #009, featuring Vilafishburn.
  • You can hear more of the incomparable wisdom of Ryan Shore on Show #004, featuring The Jeremy Vogt Band.
  • And finally, the benefit concert for LCPL Josh Bliel will be next Saturday (March 17) at St. Michael's Hall in Indianapolis. More information about how you can join the Dirty Third in helping contribute to care packages for hospitalized veterans can be found here and here

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.
