Claiming to be "America's most prolific presenter of new and emerging musical talent," the Knitting Factory's venues routinely play host to the likes of the Arcade Fire, Sufjan Stevens and Death Cab for Cutie. Though that's heartening, it doesn't necessarily mean we're going to start getting any of those acts here.
Also remaining to be seen is whether the Big Easy will start canceling Club Fusion on nights when it's double-booked with an indie show, which forces early start times, quick sets and winds up shoving fans out the door. That's something that will provide a positive community impact.
Not Merit Based & r & Ever wonder what it takes to get profiled on those Pabst Blue Ribbon Tunes on Tap ads The Inlander runs? Talent? Perseverence? Well-placed sex favors? Hardly. We hate to ruin your illusion that some A & amp;R with cuffed jeans and a wallet chain will love your sound and put you in an ad, but all you do is e-mail email@example.com, a pic and a 50-word bio. It doesn't have to be funny or heart-rending or smolderingly brilliant. It just has to be one of the first 30 e-mails we get. Oh, and you have to be over 21 because, you know, beer companies don't want to promote teen drinking. They just subsist on it.
