Sam’s Saloon has Schmegma, Evil 10 Submission, and Gash Hound on stage Saturday night for what promises to be loud and metallic entertainment. Charming names, boys. Deano’s Vino has TenFoot Band tonight and the Last Drop Juggers tomorrow. Expect it to be quieter than Sam’s Saloon. That’s not a qualitative judgment, mind you – I merely speak in terms of… Read more →
The new episode of the IMN podcast is up – download it here or listen at the site. Or, in the future, tune in to the HD2 channel of WFYI’s broadcast signal. We’re joining the lineup for their new channel later this fall, so we’re tightening up the show a bit in preparation. Let me know what you think. For… Read more →
The most recent issue of Bass Player magazine has a feature article on Wayman Tisdale and his celebrated smooth jazz career following his time in the NBA (including several great years right here in Indianapolis). It also mentioned his recovery from bone cancer, and he mentioned everything seemed to be fine now. Unfortunately, there seems to have been a minor… Read more →
The only problem with this article was that it put a subpar Boyz II Men song in my head. Otherwise, I loved the fact that the Detroit Free Press took some time off from their mayoral hijinks to highlight some of the great contributions bassists from both Detroit and Philadelphia have made to jazz and popular music. It’s nothing fans… Read more →
I spent a little time working with iZotope’s iDrum (the hip-hop edition – I am not a club kid) this weekend, and it gets decent marks from me. It’s still not up to “live” performance level (which makes me rethink my initial objections to BeatMaker), but it is a handy drum machine application. My only complaints are that the kits… Read more →
Radio Radio only has one show this weekend, but it’s a good one -rockabilly legend Sleepy LaBeef with opening act Mandy Marie & The Cool Hand Lukes tonight. Sam’s Saloon also has a sizable show this evening, featuring Black Diamond Heavies(TN), The Wisebloods, Shelby Kelley, and Scotty Lust. Peewee Moore & The Awful Dreadful Snakes and Will Stockwell (one of… Read more →
It’s up, folks – download it directly or listen at the site. We should have some decently sized news about the show in the next few weeks. Not huge, not minor – just the right sort, really.
Not only does David Hasslehoff decide to open his own social networking site, but he commits MySpace suicide at the same time. No word whether he’s going to link it to OpenSocial or not, but we can always dream. Somehow, I don’t think there’s a book in this one. Sorry, Hoff.
SimplifyMedia has put together a little package that allows music to be streamed from a home base computer to other devices, including the iPhone and other machines. My brief tests have encountered no problems, and it’s a pretty cool thought that I can access music on the handset and not have to worry about filling up the hard drive (my… Read more →
Aside from a hard fall whilst carrying equipment yesterday (my knees have been in a constant state of revolt since the afternoon – don’t try to skip stairs with two basses and a laptop in tow), “The Wiz” and Playboy Psychonauts rehearsals concluded without incident. The ‘nauts will be taking part in the Indyfringe Festival this Friday, at a stage… Read more →
