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. 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 It has become stale and outdated.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?
