January 2012: I'm embarking on a new challenge in 2012. I'm attempting to feature 52 Austin bands in 52 Weeks. Let's see how long it takes...

July 2017: Well... the 52 weeks will take more than 5 years as we're in July 2017 now and about to publish Week 26. Sorry.. but I swear I'll get this done at some point... I committed to 52 interviews and I'll deliver. 

So...
Are you a musician or member of an Austin, Texas Band?

Want to be interviewed?
 
What I Need:
1. You to reach out to me at seanclaesATseanclaes.com with a Subject Line that reads "52 Weeks Interview." We'll touch base with each other and schedule a date for publishing. 

What I'd LIKE to have happen is, the interview is published within a week of you playing a show. That was it's some promo for you. If you'd like to shoot me your poster for the show, I will try and promote it as well.


Timeline: On or before Monday of the week before your interview will publish, I will shoot you an e-mail with 10-15 questions, and I ask that you return it asap, or at least a few days. I publish every Tuesday by end of day. Example? Let's say I'm publishing an interview with Art vs. Industry on March 6, 2012. I'd have the questions to them by February 27.
Why?
You may be wondering why I'm doing this. Well, I'm a big fan of Austin music. I have been an entertainment writer for about 15 years and a magazine owner for about 5. It's never been about the money (although I wish it was a $100k a year job), but about advancing the music. In 2009-10 I did 52 Weeks of Austin CD Reviews. In 2010-11 I completed 52 Weeks of DIY Music Advice (Both of which are fully archived via those links).

The interviews will be published on INsite's Webpage .
