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 had read earlier this spring that Noodles & Co was going to open in the Fishers Marketplace (which is SR 37 and 131st St, not 141st St, just FYI). Any word on that? Also, do you happen to know what is being built in Carmel at Pennsylvania and Old Meridian? May just be an office building but I'm not sure.

    2. I'm sorry, but you are flat out wrong. There are few tracks in the world with the history of IMS and probably NO OTHER as widely known and recognized. I don't care what you think about the stat of Indy Car racing, these are pretty hard things to dispute.

    3. Also wondering if there is an update on the Brockway Pub-Danny Boy restaurant/taproom that was planned for the village as well?

    4. Why does the majority get to trample on the rights of the minority? You do realize that banning gay marriage does not rid the world of gay people, right? They are still going to be around and they are still going to continue to exist. The best way to get it all out of the spotlight? LEGALIZE IT! If gay marriage is legal, they will get to stop trying to push for it and you will get to stop seeing it all over the news. Why do Christians get to decide what is moral?? Why do you get to push your religion on others? How would legalizing gay marriage expose their lifestyle to your children? By the way, their lifestyle is going to continue whether gay marriage is legalized or not. It's been legal in Canada for quite a while now and they seem to be doing just fine. What about actual rules handed down by God? What about not working on Sundays? What about obeying your parents? What about adultery? These are in the 10 Commandments, the most important of God's rules. Yet they are all perfectly legal. What about divorce? Only God is allowed to dissolve a marriage so why don't you work hard to get divorce banned? Why do you get to pick and choose the parts of the Bible you care about?

    5. Look at the bright side. With the new Lowe's call center, that means 1000 jobs at $10 bucks an hour. IMS has to be drooling over all that disposable income. If those employees can save all their extra money after bills, in five years they can go to the race LIVE. Can you say attendance boost?
