Tuesday, October 7, 2014 12:00:00 PM


Disclosure: Sam Ash Music is a sponsor of Indy In-Tune, and Indy In-Tune is a sponsor of Shine Indy.

What: 17 local acts, starting with the teen bands of Sam Ash Music's Ash Rock Program leading up to the live recording of Bashiri Asad's new album. Bands and solo artists will be playing on the patio outside from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. All ages and free until 9pm.

$5 cover for the inside portion featuring Chicago musician Aryk Crowder opening up for local great, Bashiri Asad. Shine Studios will be recording this event with live coverage from Indy In Tune Radio and Brother, Brother Beercast all day!

Price: Free till 9pm, $5 after

I recently spoke with one of the organizers of the event, Jamie Jackson from Shine Indy, and Sam Ash Music about how this all came to be and what we can expect to see on Saturday at Sabbatical.

Foxy: Tell me what you have to do with this, and how this all came about? How did the pieces of this all fall into place?

Jamie: Shine was already doing the recording with Bashiri that night. I was wanting to have an all day show on the patio before it became too cold and before Sabbatical shuts down next year. I polled a few bands and everyone was like, LETS DO THIS!

Foxy: Who/what are some of the other players involved; who are your cohorts and partners in crime in the big picture of putting something this fantastic together.I mean, you're a pretty cool guy and all, but surely you couldn't pull this off single-handedly?

Jamie: I contacted all the bands and it really did come together quite easily. Ryan Gibbons and Ben Cannon put the initial event together and I put the build on the patio in play.

Foxy: Talk to me a little bit about Shine and who you guys are and what you're about and what you do, and the meaning of life and all that.

Jamie: Shine is all about the music. We wanted to find a way to contribute to the local scene without taking anything away from anyone. We have shows going every week in typical and atypical venues. Our artists are taken care of and we are very happy to help in any manner. We specialize in album releases. We are multi-genre and we even dabble with non music shows from time to time. But our aim to to help build this scene into an unstoppable source of great music and all are welcome to join.

Foxy: Tell us a little bit about some of the artists well see Saturday. Tell me who you are looking forward to seeing, or who you think the crowd is going to enjoy?

Jamie: We have so many great acts on this bill. Purity of the Element is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Young kids making great rock and roll. And Dream Chief is new to Shine Indy show. They have the potential to be great. We also have Janet Duke and the 7 Deadly. ZIZI WILL MELT YOUR FACE! and SlideCate Royale are a killer group that are about to drop their new album. I don't wanna give away too much, but that is just the tip.

Foxy: So can you tell us any details about this live recording going on inside Sabbatical at 9?

Jamie: NO! Be there and be ready to be amazed. Bashiri and his band are top shelf and words can not express how cool, amazing and honest that night will be.

Foxy: Thank you for your part in this, and making awesome things like this happen in our city. Were looking forward to Saturday, and everyone please GO SHOP AT SAM ASH!

Jamie: Thank you for your time and I appreciate you and what you do.

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.
