An In-Snide Look #4

Interesting thread developing from this morning's "Lightning Round" question, (If you could rid the world of one song...).  It seems, while we all pretty much have our opinions about what constitutes good music, we're all in nearly-unanimous agreement about what is bad music, and why it's bad music.  It just so happens that almost without exception, the bad music has made millions for some team of artists, producers, marketeers, and boardroom execs.  Honestly, it's not jealousy, because I think everyone has a rational, lucid explanation for why their particular song of choice needs to be removed from existence.

Steve Boller plays Shine in the Village tonight -- Sabbatical, 7PM.  Not sure if I'm going to be able to make that one, or Kolo Bell's other open mic which follows.  It all depends on the whim of Lil' Q, and I believe she had her heart set on listening to music and baking cookies tonight. So I'm trumped, sorry gang.  Three-year-olds rule.  I'll send you cookies if you ask nicely though.

For those of you who, like me, are unable to attend a live music performance, we cordially invite you to tune in and listen to Irish's debut at the ol' Studio B console from 8PM to midnight.  You'll hear a nice free-form conversation with Irish, Chris Burch, Steve Boller, and Brandon Cannon; an in-studio, in-the-round set from Chris and Steve (their first time playing together, I do believe); and of course music from several of Irish's favorite local artists thrown in to boot.  I'm thinking this will definitely be music to decorate cookies to.

For those of you who enjoy late-night Skype/chat sessions, I'll be around after 10PM this evening with the goal of knocking a card or two off the SpringPad notebook.  My guess is we'll finally get the blog section of the site updated to be a bit easier on the eyes, and if there's time, maybe dig through the archives and add another show to the Mini-Concert Archive to go with the Burch/Pedigo show that I already have ready to load.  Show me an IM or a request if you're so inclined ... I'm always up for a good late night chat.

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.
