City Market to join ArtsGarden in offering live music

Plans calls for regular schedule of musicians

The plan announced today for the latest renovation of City Market (see IBJ story here) calls for a regular schedule of music performances.

I'm all for that--not just for the sake of audiences but also for local musicians..

But this isn't something new. Let's not forget that we've already got the Indianapolis ArtsGarden offering music a few days a week for lunching downtowners. For example, Caribbean party band The Tides is in on Saturday. The Luke Austin Dougherty Jam Band plays on Tuesday. For more, click here.

Given the news about City Market, I'm curious if you've serendipitously stopped to listen to music in the ArtsGarden. Or if you've gone out of your way to see a particular band or musician there.

And, more importantly, who would you like to hear at City Market?

Your thoughts?.

  • Pro-Local
    I agree - acts should be limited to local artists. There is a lot of great, local talent here. I would love to see Jeff Day play at the City Market.
  • Group
    The Why Store would be nice
  • Pro Local Musicians
    Kendall Phillips would be great. Placed Top 5 in the National Colgate Country Showdown in Nashville TN this year.
  • ArtsGarden
    The UINDY Flute Choir plays at the ArtsGarden frequently at lunchtime. I always go to hear my niece play. The acoustics are good, and sometimes the birds sing along.

  1. I keep wondering why I keep hearing about this problem of corporations leaving America, and I never hear a reasonable proposal to lower corporate tax rates and raise personal rates on income from capital gains and dividends, especially for high earners. It is just too simple of a solution for Congress to embrace?

  3. is a disaster. SR37 already needs to be built to interstate standards between 465 and SR144. Southport Road is a mess each morning and evening.

  4. Bass Pro Shops would be good for the mall as well as a Giant Eagle Market District or a Jungle Jim's International Market Place grocery store like the one near Cincinnati Ohio.A Disney quest indoor theme park would be good.An Academy outdoor store would be good too.Indoor Circus shows and magic shows would be good as well. A casino with sports bar would be good.A Disney theater inside that shows movies and Broadway shows would work.Nashville Tennessee concert shops with indoor neon lights would be good.How about a theater that shows travel shows and theme parks. A train store would be good.How about a giant toy store with high tech video games.

  5. This development is in addition to Allpoints Midwest 5, Aitrtek, a recent FedEx and more in Plainfield. Greenwood and Brownsburg also have similar projects.
