Show #044: Pres Maxson

Every once in a while you've just got to change it up.  One of the hardest things about doing this show, particularly when you're doing three and four shows a week as I was doing when this interview was recorded, is that you run the risk of losing your own energy, which then transfers down to the guests and subsequently the interview.  Fortunately, Pres Maxson seems to have energy in abundance, and it was he who largely led the "off-the-wall" mood of this week's show.  I just happily followed along.
Pres is a recent immigrant to Indiana, coming to us -- like Upshot and Finer before him -- from the bustling L.A. music scene.  I've never really been to any venues in L.A., but if it's anything like those three groups describe, I'll just be glad I'm in Indiana.  L.A. did, however, apparently give him a change to hone and refine his sense of humor and flair for showmanship, as evidenced by his music and this interview.   Look for Pres to hopefully return in the future in the guest-host role if I have anything to say about it.

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.
