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. I never thought I'd see the day when a Republican Mayor would lead the charge in attempting to raise every tax we have to pay. Now it's income taxes and property taxes that Ballard wants to increase. And to pay for a pre-K program? Many studies have shown that pre-K offer no long-term educational benefits whatsoever. And Ballard is pitching it as a way of fighting crime? Who is he kidding? It's about government provided day care. It's a shame that we elected a Republican who has turned out to be a huge big spending, big taxing, big borrowing liberal Democrat.

  2. Why do we blame the unions? They did not create the 11 different school districts that are the root of the problem.

  3. I was just watching an AOW race from cleveland in addition to the 65K for the race, there were more people in boats watching that race from the lake than were IndyCar fans watching the 2014 IndyCar season finale in the Fontana grandstands. Just sayin...That's some resurgence modern IndyCar has going. Almost profitable, nobody in the grandstands and TV ratings dropping 61% at some tracks in the series. Business model..."CRAZY" as said by a NASCAR track general manager. Yup, this thing is purring like a cat! Sponsors...send them your cash, pronto!!! LOL, not a chance.

  4. I'm sure Indiana is paradise for the wealthy and affluent, but what about the rest of us? Over the last 40 years, conservatives and the business elite have run this country (and state)into the ground. The pendulum will swing back as more moderate voters get tired of Reaganomics and regressive social policies. Add to that the wave of minority voters coming up in the next 10 to 15 years and things will get better. unfortunately we have to suffer through 10 more years of gerrymandered districts and dispropionate representation.

  5. Funny people telling poor people how bad the other rich people are wanting to cut benefits/school etc and that they should vote for those rich people that just did it. Just saying..............
