Starting from Thursday evening, the weekend for me included searching, fascinating work from choreographer Bill T. Jones and his dancers visiting IU Bloomington as well as a trip back in cinematic time courtesy of the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra. More on both later.

Alas, I didn't get to the Encore Vocal Arts performance with Philip Gulley, the Cash Bash tribute at Radio Radio or the latest at the Phoenix or the Indiana Repertory Theatre.

So fill me in. What did you see, hear or do this weekend?

  • Harold Lloyd was a blast!
    Silent movie with chamber orchestra was the most fun! You could sense the excitement of the audience gasping at near falls and hear the laughing at the wonderful antics of these classic films. The Indianpolis Chamber Orchestra playing really made this a great evening.
  • The Accordions
    Saw The Accordions in concert, at Earth House--great show! They are quite entertaining and listenable, which is saying a lot in a place that doesn't serve alcohol.
  • Creepy!
    Saw Shutter Island. No, not the world's finest piece of film making, but very entertaining with just enough twists and turns to keep you anticipating and second guessing. Looking forward to the Oscars next Sunday. Disappointed I didn't have a chance to see The Messenger.
  • Nice Weekend
    Saw the Tots Show Friday night (A&A better than ever), Pretty Fire at IRT on Sat (Incredible performance by Milicent Wright) and Symphonic Praise Choir at Pike on Sunday. Great weekend.
  • thanks
    Thanks to all for chiming in.
    Chuck: Sorry I missed A&E, even though I've seen it twice on its IndyFringe run. Also, still a few chances for Pretty Fire. Hope to be able to get there.
    Mary: Looks like I won't get to Shutter Island. Probably will wait for video on that one.
    John F.: I loved seeing the Lloyd film again, but the Keaton (which was new to me) blew me away. Hope the opening speaking wasn't too dull.

  1. I am so impressed that the smoking ban FAILED in Kokomo! I might just move to your Awesome city!

  2. way to much breweries being built in indianapolis. its going to be saturated market, if not already. when is enough, enough??

  3. This house is a reminder of Hamilton County history. Its position near the interstate is significant to remember what Hamilton County was before the SUPERBROKERs, Navients, commercial parks, sprawling vinyl villages, and acres of concrete retail showed up. What's truly Wasteful is not reusing a structure that could still be useful. History isn't confined to parks and books.

  4. To compare Connor Prairie or the Zoo to a random old house is a big ridiculous. If it were any where near the level of significance there wouldn't be a major funding gap. Put a big billboard on I-69 funded by the tourism board for people to come visit this old house, and I doubt there would be any takers, since other than age there is no significance whatsoever. Clearly the tax payers of Fishers don't have a significant interest in this project, so PLEASE DON'T USE OUR VALUABLE MONEY. Government money is finite and needs to be utilized for the most efficient and productive purposes. This is far from that.

  5. I only tried it 2x and didn't think much of it both times. With the new apts plus a couple other of new developments on Guilford, I am surprised it didn't get more business. Plus you have a couple of subdivisions across the street from it. I hope Upland can keep it going. Good beer and food plus a neat environment and outdoor seating.
