Tuesday playlist time:

I'm getting a little tired of endless lists of songs based around a genre or era. Was playing around on YouTube with the family last week and found a whole bunch of cool stuff I hadn't seen or even though of in years, really. Let's try something different, and do a little exploration of influences, events, people, and stuff from my formative years that made me the man I am today.

Yes, take yourself back to a mystical era called the 1970's. It was a magical era from the cotton fields of Mississippi to the woods of Southern Illinois. It was the decline of the Rolling Stones and the rise of the Bay City Rollers. It was an age of chaos when the Kiss had a disco hit and the Go-Go's were a scary punk rock band. It was my formative years...

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.
