Show #093: Pres Maxson Returns

What else can be said about Pres Maxson that hasn't already been said? I asked myself this very question when his people woke me out of a sound sleep at 3:30 AM, and informed me that Pres was ready to come out of his self-imposed exile and begin doing press junkets for his latest musical venture. Of course I quickly agreed, not only because Pres is the second most important man in the Indianapolis music scene, but also because the sight of three men in black suits and sunglasses standing in your bedroom at 3:30 AM will make you agree to pretty much anything quickly. (Why Pres doesn't come up off the checkbook and buy his people phones, I have no idea.) Since it is Pres, however, preparations were made to ensure that his second appearance was a memorable one. I mean, after all, this was the guy who became our first co-host, our first guest-host, our first podcast game show host, and our first inter-state podcast host ... coming up with something new for him to do was going to be difficult.

However, I have previously mentioned my burning desire to record a podcast in a bowling alley ... just for the ambiance.

Links referenced in the show:

  • Pres Maxson can be found here: Web Site | MySpace | Facebook | Reverbnation
  • Pres has previously appeared on Show #044 as a guest, Show #048 as a co-host, and Show #064 as a guest host.
  • Special thanks to Pinheads Entertainment Center for unknowingly hosting us for the evening.
  • You can listen to the Indy In-Tune Last FM station here to hear more great music from our former guests.
  • We regret to inform you that the great Don Ho did in fact pass away back in 2007.
  • Don't be like Pres and me. You should probably read Alice in Wonderland. At the very least you'll understand what that song of his is about.
  • Keep an eye out for our Europe Tribute Band coming in late 2011.
  • Pres' former band, the Bo Dukes, who contributed our fourth track, can be found here.
  • The video for the Katie Perry Kid that we allude to can be found here.
  • We recommend catching Pres with his acoustic duo, The 1933's, when they play the Mass Ave Wine Shop, usually about once a month.

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.
