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.

  1. These liberals are out of control. They want to drive our economy into the ground and double and triple our electric bills. Sierra Club, stay out of Indy!

  2. These activist liberal judges have gotten out of control. Thankfully we have a sensible supreme court that overturns their absurd rulings!

  3. Maybe they shouldn't be throwing money at the IRL or whatever they call it now. Probably should save that money for actual operations.

  4. For you central Indiana folks that don't know what a good pizza is, Aurelio's will take care of that. There are some good pizza places in central Indiana but nothing like this!!!

  5. I am troubled with this whole string of comments as I am not sure anyone pointed out that many of the "high paying" positions have been eliminated identified by asterisks as of fiscal year 2012. That indicates to me that the hospitals are making responsible yet difficult decisions and eliminating heavy paying positions. To make this more problematic, we have created a society of "entitlement" where individuals believe they should receive free services at no cost to them. I have yet to get a house repair done at no cost nor have I taken my car that is out of warranty for repair for free repair expecting the government to pay for it even though it is the second largest investment one makes in their life besides purchasing a home. Yet, we continue to hear verbal and aggressive abuse from the consumer who expects free services and have to reward them as a result of HCAHPS surveys which we have no influence over as it is 3rd party required by CMS. Peel the onion and get to the root of the will find that society has created the problem and our current political landscape and not the people who were fortunate to lead healthcare in the right direction before becoming distorted. As a side note, I had a friend sit in an ED in Canada for nearly two days prior to being evaluated and then finally...3 months later got a CT of the head. You pay for what you get...
