Show #136: Grant McClintock

You think by now I'd give up trying to make New Years' resolutions.  Aside from the one about being nicer to my roommate, I've never actually managed to pull one off, though quite often for good reason.  This year, I am resolving 1) to get back into writing and playing music again, and 2) to find a way for seven years of hard work building Indy In-Tune and promoting the local music scene to at least pay for itself in a break even fashion.  Yeah, I jokingly say that, as a hobby, it's cheaper than heroin, but quite frankly I'd like to have what I have be self-sustaining, so that I can take that hobby budget and apply it towards expanding a bit.  You know, maybe better equipment, better swag, contests, something like that.  What's your resolution.  Do share it with us.

This week's guest is Grant McClintock and his as-yet-unnamed band.  Grant is a Pennsylvania transplant I first met back at our PodConcert #1 at Birdy's, courtesy of our mutual friends in Minute Details. What attracted me most his music was willingness to experiment with different sounds and instrumentation and push at the envelope of convention, yet still not break it to the point that you would call his music progressive or psychedelic (the instant stigmas of fanatic loyalty, but low mass appeal).  For this show, he performed all tracks live in Studio B, with his set being streamed live to the Internet at the time.  You can hear just the tracks (plus the between-song banter in our Mini Concert library.

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.
