The Indianapolis Early Music Festival is in full swing, and you can score a pair of free tickets to one of its headliner shows.

The San Francisco-based Canconier is performing music from the time of Vlad the Impaler (the inspiration for Dracula) July 23, and all you need to do is enter here.

I’ll pick one winner at random, but please include your favorite vampire, performance as a vampire, or vampire-inspired performance anyway.

Good luck.

  • Bela
    There are so many to choose from. Bela is my fave and in a class all by himself, but I would add Gary Oldman, Willem Defoe in Shadow of the Vampire, Christopher Lee, Barnabas Collins, current faves, Bill & Eric from True Blood and Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer - still my fave show.
  • Dracul
    Best vampire ever? My vote is for Jonathan Frid...wonderful old Barnabas Collins from Dark Shadows when I was but a wee lad. Scared the tar outta me every afternoon after school.
  • Vamps
    The Dracula that lurks quietly in the background of Kostova's The Historian is my favorite to date.
    • Vampires
      Has to be Dark Shadows!
    • The Historian
      Cindy - I loved that book too - it had great atmosphere. I couldn't put it down!
    • Too Dracula?
      I dressed as Dracula for Halloween one year. Must have looked scary as kids would not come to the door when they saw me on the porch! Does that count?
    • Vampire
      My favorite vampires has to be a tie between Christopher Lee and Gary Oldman.
    • Vampire in The Historian
      I also love Dracula in The Historian...one of my favorite vampire books.
    • Favorite Vampire
      Personally, Buffy The Vampire Slayer is still one of the best shows ever, so I will, hands down, vote for David Boreanaz's Angel. How can you compete against a tortured vampire with a soul?
    • Best Vampires?
      On the comedic side: George Harrison in the parody "Love at First Bite" - this was hilarious! Then Brad Pitt as Louis in Anee Rice's "Interview with a Vampire". This was a great flick and read.
    • Original
      I can't remember the correct title to the silent film. You can't beat it for atmosphere and a really creepy Dracula.
    • Spooky
      Dragula, a way back, with Bela Lugosi
    • Sesame Street's "The Count"
    • Frank Langella
      The best Dracula was Frank Langella's portrayal in Dracula (1979).
    • vampire?
      Dark Shadows fan as well - Barnabas Collins was spooky!
    • Favorite vampire
      Keifer Sutherland....The Lost Boys!

    1. I am a Lyft driver who is a licensed CDL professional driver. ALL Lyft drivers take pride in providing quality service to the Indianapolis and surrounding areas, and we take the safety of our passengers and the public seriously.(passengers are required to put seat belts on when they get in our cars) We do go through background checks, driving records are checked as are the personal cars we drive, (these are OUR private cars we use) Unlike taxi cabs and their drivers Lyft (and yes Uber) provide passengers with a clean car inside and out, a friendly and courteous driver, and who is dressed appropriately and is groomed appropriately. I go so far as to offer mints, candy and/or small bottle of water to the my customers. It's a mutual respect between driver and passenger. With Best Regards

    3. In the first sentance "As a resident of one of these new Carmel Apartments the issue the local governments need to discuss are build quality & price." need a way to edit

    4. As a resident of one of these new Carmel Apartments the issue the local governments need to discuss is build quality & price. First none of these places is worth $1100 for a one bedroom. Downtown Carmel or Keystone at the Crossing in Indy. It doesn't matter. All require you to get in your car to get just about anywhere you need to go. I'm in one of the Carmel apartments now where after just 2.5 short years one of the kitchen cabinet doors is crooked and lawn and property maintenance seems to be lacking my old Indianapolis apartment which cost $300 less. This is one of the new star apartments. As they keep building throughout the area "deals" will start popping up creating shoppers. If your property is falling apart after year 3 what will it look like after year 5 or 10??? Why would one stay here if they could move to a new Broad Ripple in 2 to 3 years or another part of the Far Northside?? The complexes aren't going to let the "poor" move in without local permission so that's not that problem, but it the occupancy rate drops suddenly because the "Young" people moved back to Indy then look out.

    5. Why are you so concerned about Ace hardware? I don't understand why anyone goes there! Every time ive gone in the past, they don't have what I need and I end up going to the big box stores. I understand the service aspect and that they try to be helpful but if they are going to survive I think they might need to carry more specialty parts.
