So we took a couple weeks off in there, but rest assured that we
were not sitting around twiddling our thumbs and watching crappy
VH1 countdowns during that time. Quite the contrary, we
managed to record seven new shows, which will be coming about at a
rate of about one every four days for the next month or so.
Those of you who are observant, or who have a balance of more than
500 "Official Indy In-Tune Cool Points," will be able to listen to
those in advance, however.
This week we travel to Locals Only, one of our favorite venues,
and pay a visit with Fernhead, who hold down a Tuesday night
residency there playing their free from brand of funky,
psychedelic, groove-rock. It a great show that varies
completely from week to week, features amazing musicians, excellent
guest musicians, can't-beat-em drink and food specials to boot, and
if you're so inclined and they still have them available, a free CD
to take home with you at the end of the night.
Links referenced in the show:
- Fernhead can be found here: MySpace.
- Steve Smith and Jacob Ginnup
first met in the Huck Finn band.
- Jacob Ginnup and I eluded to playing sessions together for a
legendary unfinished/unheard project, one version of
which can be found here. Note that it also features Mark
Miller (co-host on Show #018) and Tim Spainhower (who appeared on show
#007 and who will soon be returning on show
- As an open-format guest-friendly band, they have been known to
play with Matty Riegel of Will
Woodrow Project, Scott Kern,

Brush, Michael Kelsey, Aaron
Chandler, Brad Cummins, Mike Kaschak of Dudes
of Lord, and dozens of others.
- Their current CD, Parsing Dichroic, was recorded live at
Only in Broad Ripple and can be found on their Reverbnation
site. A second CD, Malobar, is available for free at the
door if you attend one of their Tuesday night performances
- Both CD's were recorded using the Olympus LS-10, which they wholeheartedly
endorse for live performance recording.
