Welcome to the IMN Tribute Site!

Welcome to the IndianapolisMusic.net tribute site.
It’s not too much of a stretch to say that IMN was a pretty important website to the city of Indianapolis.  (It even won the overall “Best Website in Indianapolis” award in the annual NUVO Newsweekly “Best of Indy” awards).

IMN was like MySpace & Facebook for the city of Indianapolis (before MySpace existed). During its heyday, IMN boasted over 10,000+ active users during its most popular time, featuring over 800+ local band micro-sites and literally hundreds of thousands of user driven event listings during 2001-2005.

IndianapolisMusic.net was originally a custom programmed site started by Matt Fecher in 2001.  Over the years, IMN evolved and was later helmed by the very talented duo of Steve Hayes & Ryan Williams.

WHILE THE ORIGINAL INDIANAPOLISMUSIC.NET SITE IS GONE,
we have put up this WordPress tribute site that features some of the later content from IMN.Learn more about IMN here or browse through some content below.

Best Bets Live: Dec 22-28, 2011


Margot & the Nuclear So & So’s

Indy Best Bets Live: Dec 22-28, 2011

Weekly best bets for the Indianapolis music lover. The Indy Top 10 Live is compiled by a selection panel of local print, radio, and internet journalists and is new every Thursday online and in print in Indy Metromix.

Text by Steve Hayes

1. Chevy Downs w/ Otis Gibbs, Endiana, Voodoo Sunshine

8 PM, Friday December 23, Birdy's, $12

Our final list covers the rest of 2011, including Indy's New Year's Eve shows. This list topper is one of the last big events before Christmas. With Hoosier expatriates coming home for the holidays, bands of the past can get back together with wayward members for reunion shows. Roots rockers Chevy Downs, featuring an all-star lineup of local talent, reform to headline a night that also features Otis Gibbs visiting his old home from his current Nashville, TN address.

2. Margot & the Nuclear So & So's

8:15 PM, Saturday December 31, Deluxe at the Amber Room/Old National Centre, $25 – 65.00

The Old National Centre debuts a new venue on New Year's Eve with Margot & the Nuclear So & So's headlining an indie rock celebration at Deluxe. The basement space offers an opportunity for patrons 18 and older to ring in the New Year with the Indy-born band. Those 21 and over can upgrade their ticket and enjoy libations in the adjacent Amber Room. Vacation Club, John Rambo & the Vietnam Wars, and Memory Map also perform.

3. Toxic Reasons, Creepin' Charley & the Boneyard Orchestra, Vodka DeMilo, Dan Glenzig, Ask

9 PM, Saturday December 31, Radio Radio, $15

Radio Radio's New Year's Eve party offers a lineup featuring local punk rock royalty. Toxic Reasons dates back to the late 70's and still performs sporadically, powered by local rockers Bruce Stuckey and “Tufty” Clough. Punk Rock Night founder Greg Brenner shows off his own rock skills as he plays front man for Vodka DeMilo. Dan Glenzig features ex-Sloppy Seconds guitarist Danny Thompson while Ask is the latest project from Zero Boys' Paul Mahern.

4. Rev. Peyton's Big Damn Band w/ The Cox Brothers

9 PM, Saturday December 31, The Bluebird (Bloomington), $15 – 20.75

Though the absence of college students makes Bloomington feel like a ghost town during winter break, you can bet the Bluebird will be packed on New Year's Eve. Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band welcomes 2012 at the near-campus venue. The rural blues revivalists make the short trip from their Bean Blossom, IN residence to perform. The show concludes a busy year for the trio that included multiple tours of Europe.
