MFT Call Out: Seeking People with Secret/Abandoned Musical Ambitions for Documentary Project

 It started with a Craigslist ad a couple weeks ago, and well, it hasn't gotten much further than that - yet! We just haven't found the right fit for this project so far, but I know there are a lot of "former musicians" or "bedroom project" type folks who still hang around Musical Family Tree. So we figured…See More

Sunset Pig - "Everything Is Fake"

Sunset Pig MFT Page(Listen while you read!) It feels almost ridiculous to use the word “electronic” as a genre descriptor when talking about music in 2013. In many cases, the term feels unnecessary and antiquated. With the exception of the coolest,…See More

Jon Rogers commented on Joe Christian's blog post HOW TO SELL ALBUMS AT MFT
"We don't currently have a "sell" option on MFT. Check out http://bandcamp.com - it's an awesome site for independent musicians to sell their digital music at any price. However, I'm not sure that bandcamp will provide you…"

Aaron Poehler commented on Jon Rogers's blog post Cataracts 2012 Flashbacks: How a Psychedelic House Show Fest Transformed the Midwest
"Interesting that this was intended for VICE. Had you previously discussed this with editorial there, or was this a hopeful blind submission?"

Cataracts 2012 Flashbacks: How a Psychedelic House Show Fest Transformed the Midwest

Note: This piece was originally written last year after Cataracts, with hopes that we would get it published in VICE. That didn't happen. There are certain inconsistencies and inaccuracies in this article, but for the most part I have tried to preserve its original state (composed nearly a year ago) as much as possible. As both a…See More

About Me
I love to read, mostly fiction. I love to listen to music, mostly vinyl, although I did recently (2011) get my first ever i-pod. Wow, missed out on that one for a while. I also enjoy going to local shows and seeing some of my favorite friends make awesome music. I too am a musician...
I enjoy living in Indianapolis, challenging myself to try new things, and enjoying the finer things in life (food, drinks, vinyl records, and film) with my beautiful wife, Abby. We get along. My favorite thing to watch is the Simpsons, my heroes include Sun Ra and Groucho Marx, and I used to be terrified of spiders, but I'm working on that.
What bands are you or have you been in?
Everything, Now!, Works Cited, Nor Mountain Man, Golden Moses, John Henry Thor, Material Culture
What city are you from?
Indianapolis
Original Hometown
Athens, GA
