Show #048: Jeremiah Cosner and the Concrete Sailors

It's the little things in life that make it all worth while, and in many ways, this show is a perfect example.  First off, there's the music -- a great set of songs from local singer/songwriter Jeremiah Cosner (now frontman of the Concrete Sailors).  This is brilliant stuff that is both catchy and lyrically significant.  It's not too heavy; not too light; just a great soundtrack for good times.  Next, there was our continuing experimentation with guest hosts.  This week we gave the fifth mike to my buddy, Pres Maxson, whom we first met a few weeks ago  on Show #044.  I had a hunch when I met him that night that his sense of humor and creativity would be a great addition to the show, and I wasn't at all disappointed with his first outing as co-host.  We'll definitely try to have him back on a few more times.  Next, there was the beer.  How can one go wrong with 50-cent Busch Light, the sweet milk of my motherland in St. Louis?  In fact, being somewhat ambitious, Pres purchased us a $5 tray of ten, a few of which we ended up handing out to random ladies in the audience.

Which brings me to the final item in that list of "little things that make life grand:"  It may or may not have had anything to do with the free beers we were dispensing, but at one point during Jeremiah Cosner and the Concrete Sailor's first set, I definitely got my butt slapped by a passing female.  Now grated she didn't actually see my face, nor did I see hers (she was walking away at the time), and even though I am a happily married man, and even though she may (for all I know) have been a serial butt-slapper who does that kind of thing all the time, I just wanted to say thanks for the vote of confidence and the temporary ego boost.

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.
