Show #007: Fabulous Huckleberries

It's been a big week for Indy In-Tune alums.  Jeremy Vogt played the VIP tent at the Dave Matthews band concert last night.  Meanwhile, accross the city, the Danny Isaacs Band placed second in their heat at the Battle of Birdy's and advances to the next round in September.  In Broadripple, CA3's experimental "Out of their Element" series has been extended for another month at the Upper Room, where they will continue to meld seemingly disparate musical styles and produce fascinating improvisational compositions each and every Tuesday night.

Meanwhile at the Indianapolis Podcasters' Guild Halls, we continue with our strange happenings of of things breaking down and/or blowing up.  The laptop is still out of comission, which may put a damper on future podcasts if "big retail electroics chain" can't get the repair job turned around in time.  Add to that, the refridgerator (purchased from a different big retail electronics chain); the wife (attacked by an electric hedgetrimmer and requiring six stitches last weekend); the dog (severe bladder infection discoverd after an operation to remove a suspicious growth); and the truck (wheel bearing and impending break work).

Thank god I've got my music to keep me sane.

This week's guest -- The Fabulous Huckleberries -- has, until recently, been strictly a studio project band. They are currently under new management, working on their ninth studio project, and recruiting a lineup to help them take their show live.  Their music is straight up rock and roll with a slight twist: classic 60's instrumentation and sensibilities, meets modern production sounds, values, and technology. In addition, the band consists of such a unique group of characters that, even if great rock and roll isn't your thing, you won't want to miss this interview.

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.
