Show #128: Whoa!Tiger Returns

There came a point back around Show #118, coincidentally co-hosted by one of tonight's guests, Jack Barkley, when I realized how truly blessed I am to have so many cool friends in the local music scene.  We sat around that night, talked about frivolous things, serious topics, played music, took questions from the Internet audience, drank copious amounts of beer, and just, generally had a blast hanging out.  Unfortunately, I had to go back to being a corporate drone at a soul-sucking day job the next day, which led to another realization: Thursdays are worse than Mondays for me, directly proportional to the amount of fun I had playing "radio guy" the night before.  I was reminded of this recently, when Whoa!Tiger dropped by for a similar evening of fun, and became the first full band to play a live, on-air set from "Studio B."  Co-incidentally this their first "unplugged set" as well, and yet another miserable Thursday for me.  I mention this here because there are many references to the performance throughout the interview.  Unfortunately, the recording was deemed sub-standard for this podcast, therefore we have substituted tracks from their latest album, instead.  See what what happens when you don't listen live?  

It seems like every time Indy In-Tune puts something together, Whoa!Tiger tend to dominate it.  In 2010, they won the inaugural Podcast Battle of the Bands -- sweeping the top three songs by popular vote and prompting our judges to create the category, "Best album by a band without superfluous punctuation in their name."  They repeated the feat by being the only band to hold down the #1 through #4 spots on Indy In-Tune Radio's top twenty countdown.  Whoa!Tiger is the musical equivalent of that overachieving valedictorian/quarterback/prom king you went to high school with that pretty much excelled at everything he did and was a nice as he was gifted.  Makes you just want to slug the collective lot of them, eh?

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.
