Radio Radio presents a benefit for Indy Reads Saturday night with Eisenhower Field Day, Hey Hey Melodica, and DJ Sarah Vain.
Sam’s Saloon presents a dark and rocking night of music with Black Cat Rebellion, Davey Casket & the Ghouls and Johnny Murder & The 25 to Life. Saturday brings the more earthy sounds of Matt Keating, Heavy Hometown, and Ben Justus & the Trespassers.
Deano’s Vino has New Augusta Bluegrass tonight and the Last Drop Juggers tomorrow as part of their Octoberfest celebration. And tonight is Swing Night at the Fountain Square Theater with the Indianapolis Jazz Orchestra.
And even with all of that, there’s a big gaping whole to fill here – this Saturday literally blows normal Fountain Square weekends out of the water. There’s Masterpiece In A Day (no music competition this year, but there will be extras wandering about), The Fountain Square Art Festival (with yet more musicians on the lineup), the Wheeler Building Open House (more musicians? Mais oui!), and the aforemention Octoberfest at Deano’s with another one on Shelby’s rooftop. That’s plenty to do – no excuses. And be sure to tip any musicians you see playing – the economy is fair to nobody these days.
