Show #175: Kiefer Jones and David Lee Return

I really need to rethink this "Busiest year Ever" concept.  It's only January and I've pretty much scheduled out more podcasts this year that I performed in the last two years combined ... and this only goes to the end of February.  Obviously it's not so much doing the live shows and recording.  That's the best part.  It's the 2-3 hours of editing afterwards, when everybody's gone home that will slowly drive you insane.  Oh, and just try to come up with great new adjectives to describe your favorite bands after you've written 175 podcast introductions ... to say nothing of just coming off a year of 365 consecutive blog posts (okay, albeit, with a little bit of cheating).  Honestly, I don't know how those "serious journalists" are able to do this kind of thing on a regular basis.  And some of them are even funny!

Kiefer Jones and David Lee first wowed us about a year ago when they dropped by and, owing to the fact that they did not have much recorded material, did a quick live set for us in Studio B.  This time around they are touting a recently-recorded live set from Birdy's, some cool new merchandise, and a brilliantly run Kickstarter campaign to finance a trip to California (with a purpose) to record their next EP.  It's always a treat to catch up with these guys and to hear some of the great new stuff they're working on.  Hopefully we'll get a couple more chances before they become too famous for Indy In-Tune.

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.
