Show #114: The Last Good Year

Special treat for you this week: an action-packed show featuring fun, frivolity, and the kind of music that, no matter how bad a mood you're in, makes you nod your head and pound your fist in the air in defiance.  The Last Good Year is one of those in your face rock bands that encompasses everything that the genre implies -- crunchy guitar riffs, a rhythm section that gets you moving, and vocals that convey the raw power of emotion, grab your attention, and command you to steal your childrens' money ... er ... ummm ... and drag you in to the song.  Had a great time hanging out with these guys, spinning some tunes, and talking about the trials and tribulations of tours, sponsorships, hitting on bartenders, and  winning just about every competition the band has ever entered -- or at least earning a pretty damned impressive trophy case of victories over the years.

I've seen and exchanged emails/tweets with The Last Good Year a couple of times over the years, but it was the insistence and efforts of Aaron Patrick that finally got these guys on the show in advance of their new single, Steady Road, and subsequent tour.  As you may have noticed, with the recent publicity afforded us by the radio station and associated launch party, so far in the month of August, I've put together about as many podcasts as I did in the entire year of 2011.  Therefore it seemed only natural to drag Aaron along and give him the quick field promotion to co-host, as he has always been a vibrant personality in his appearances a guest.  He did not disappoint.

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.
