Freddy Jones Band

Dubbed the “Darlings of Triple A Radio” the Freddy Jones Band is set to release Never Change June 30th.  Founding members Marty Lloyd and Wayne Healy began the writing process during an informal recording session.  With scheduled shows across the country, the two decided to test the new material on fans.  The response was so overwhelmingly positive they entered the studio in Nashville (with Grammy award winning producer Justin Niebank) to record the album.   Download “Those Diamonds” from Never Change and learn more about the Freddy Jones Band at their Official Website, “Like” them on Facebook, and follow them on Twitter.

It’s Race Weekend in Indy, and there really is something for the whole family. Carb Day kicks everything off Friday at the Speedway. Gates open at 8 am. Check out vintage cars, the final practice session, the pit stop competition and of course live music (Jane’s Addiction, O.A.R. and .38 Special all play). Find out more about Carb Day.

The IPL 500 Festival Parade starts at noon on Saturday. This is the only event to take place every year since the festival began in 1957.  Look for Paul Mendenhall announcing the parade along Meridian St. between New York and Michigan.

On Sunday, the green flag drops just after 12pm. On the way to the track, tune to WTTS for Race Day World Class Rock, a fun, upbeat soundtrack, complete with traffic and weather information brought to you by Tom Wood. More information about the big race.

Heartless Bastards

For the past decade, Heartless Bastards have been constantly in motion exploring new sounds and perfecting their unique brand of rock ‘n’ roll.  Led by Erika Wennerstrom’s one of a kind voice, Restless Ones continues the band’s exploration. “We took a lot of chances,” Wennerstrom says, “taking the sounds in different directions in order to grow. I don’t ever want to make the same album twice.”  With the help of Grammy award winning producer John Congleton (St. Vincent, Angel Olsen, Swans), Restless Ones captures the band in their truest form.  Download “Gates Of Dawn” off Restless Ones and learn more about Heartless Bastards on their Official Website, “Like” them on Facebook, and follow them on Twitter.
