For me, the weekend included Stephanie J. Block's concert at the Cabaret at the Columbia Club and Dance Kaleidoscope's "Kings and Queens of Country" show at the IRT. At home, I finished reading the autobiography of director William Friedkin ("The French Connection," "The Exorcist") but, alas, didn't have time to watch the new "Cosmos" series so will have to find time to watch it on the DVR this week.

And you?

Did you get to see the ISO's "Firebird"? Experience Imago Theatre's "Frogz" at the Tarkington? See "Winter's Tale" at the IndyFringe Building, "Comedy of Errors" at the Irvington Lodge, or both? (Find my thoughts on them here. Or join the crowd at the Eiteljorg's Ansel Adams show?

Let all those out there in IBJ land know what you saw over the weekend. Fill in your thoughts below.

  • Giddy-up to DK!
    What a fun performance of Dance Kaliedoscope's Kings and Queens of Country! Had my toes tappin' while the dancers brought such energy to the music of some country greats! Don't miss this as they have performances this Thursday thru Sunday!
  • Great DK show
    This was my first ever Dance Kaliedescope show and it was great fun. My wife and I really enjoyed the dancing. The choreography fit so well with the music. I sat there with a smile on my face the whole show. Go and see this show. Very entertaining.
  • SJB is Amazing!
    I couldn't make it to Stephanie J. Block's concert and am green with envy that you got to go. Can't wait to find out what you thought, Lou.
  • DK review
    DK's Kings & Queens Of Country Music is a fun-filled, energetic romp that will melt any leftover ice in your veins. Do yourselves a favor & go see it this weekend at the IRT's Upper Stage.
  • DK + Country= Fabulous!
    I attended Sunday's performance at the intimate IRT Upperstage and was mesmerized! Our front row seats revealed the perfect grace of the dancers as they interpreted the meanings of the chosen songs with facial and body expressions. Fantastic choreography and beautiful dancing UP CLOSE! Don't miss it!
  • Stephanie was fantastic!
    Stephanie J. Block's concerts were amazing! I went to both of them! She is such a powerhouse performer. She can fill the whole cabaret room with her voice without a microphone! It is truly spectacular. She is mostly know for belting out the big numbers but her lilting soprano voice is truly beautiful! Her rendition of Somewhere Over The Rainbow is out of this world! Love her and love getting to see her perform!
  • What a great DK show!
    DK is performing to country for the first time, and what rousing fun it is. You know the music, so come and see this beautiful show-with great dancing to familiar tunes. It's on the Upper Stage at IRT Thur, Fri, Sat and Sun this week...don't miss this treat!!

  1. If I were a developer I would be looking at the Fountain Square and Fletcher Place neighborhoods instead of Broad Ripple. I would avoid the dysfunctional BRVA with all of their headaches. It's like deciding between a Blackberry or an iPhone 5s smartphone. BR is greatly in need of updates. It has become stale and outdated. Whereas Fountain Square, Fletcher Place and Mass Ave have become the "new" Broad Ripples. Every time I see people on the strip in BR on the weekend I want to ask them, "How is it you are not familiar with Fountain Square or Mass Ave? You have choices and you choose BR?" Long vacant storefronts like the old Scholar's Inn Bake House and ZA, both on prominent corners, hurt the village's image. Many business on the strip could use updated facades. Cigarette butt covered sidewalks and graffiti covered walls don't help either. The whole strip just looks like it needs to be power washed. I know there is more to the BRV than the 700-1100 blocks of Broad Ripple Ave, but that is what people see when they think of BR. It will always be a nice place live, but is quickly becoming a not-so-nice place to visit.

  2. I sure hope so and would gladly join a law suit against them. They flat out rob people and their little punk scam artist telephone losers actually enjoy it. I would love to run into one of them some day!!

  3. Biggest scam ever!! Took 307 out of my bank ac count. Never received a single call! They prey on new small business and flat out rob them! Do not sign up with these thieves. I filed a complaint with the ftc. I suggest doing the same ic they robbed you too.

  4. Woohoo! We're #200!!! Absolutely disgusting. Bring on the congestion. Indianapolis NEEDS it.

  5. So Westfield invested about $30M in developing Grand Park and attendance to date is good enough that local hotel can't meet the demand. Carmel invested $180M in the Palladium - which generates zero hotel demand for its casino acts. Which Mayor made the better decision?
