You-review-it Monday: Feinstein competition and more

Yes, I missed the recreation of the "Last Waltz" concert at the Vogue. And Karen Irwin's Janis Joplin show at the Cabaret at the Club. 

But I have excuses. I was in Muncie speaking at the Midwest Writers Workshop, a wonderful gathering of scribes across the experience spectrum learning with each other, sharing stories, and offering fellowship. After classes, I had just enough time to get to the Palladium to see the finals of the Great American Songbook high school vocal competition, grab a few hours sleep, and then host another wonderful IBJ A&E Road Trip on Saturday to Chicago to see the Goodman Theatre's production of "The Jungle Book" (which I wrote about here). 

So did you get to any of the aforementioned shows? Or did you catch the final weekend for "ZIrkusGrimm" or the Indianapolis International Film Festival.

What did you hear, see or do on the A&E front last weekend? 

Your thoughts?

  • Indy film fest
    I saw Tales From the Organ Trade at the Indy Film Fest on Friday night. It was a very well done documentary that really made you think; what would I do if I needed a kidney (or other organ) and the US donor list was looking like a bad option? Or, would I be willing to give up my kidney for a loved one? It was an interesting film and we had a very nice evening.
  • Great Show / Bad Show
    You didn't miss anything at the Karen Irwin show. It was labeled as a tribute to Janis Joplin, but she spent more time talking about herself, than she did singing. I'd call it brutal to sit through. SUCH A NIGHT, however, was one of the best concerts of the year. They really knocked it out of the park.
  • Great Show
    We went Sat. nite and from what I understand Friday was the rowdy singing and dancing audience.... The piece was a lovely tribute to a performer gone too so. I have listen to many Janis recording and if you couldn't see Karen you wouldn't have known it was live.

  2. We are a nation of speed. All of our younger lives are filled with deadlines, quotas and bottom lines. We start to ease out of the pressured rat-race when we finally see "retirement." The most enjoyable travel on the planet is passenger rail service. Indy to Chicago does not beat Megabus or Southwest Airlines in speed. Passenger rail however has the best seating, mammoth legroon, seat backs that recline to more than 45 degrees and employers that really want you to return as a customer. Indiana municipalities need to maintain subsidies to support this transportation mode. Losing it is loss for all of us.
