So did you make it to the Palladium for either the gala or the first concert in the classical series? (I caught both. The first is reviewed here.)

But that wasn't the only game in town (or in the region). There were concerts with the ISO and Meridian Song Project. Plays at the Phoenix and the IRT. And lots more.

What did you hear, see, or otherwise do this weekend?

  • Stolen and Costello
    I'm admittedly geekish about Elvis Costello's Juliet Letters. I own two versions on CD, and still have the casette I bought when it was first released back in the early 90s. So, I was simply tickled to hear it performed live. Still, the Meridian Song Project went beyond simply satisfying my geekish interest. Yesterday's concert was one of the most beautiful performances I've enjoyed anywhere in a very long time. The strings were exceptional, and, of course, Steven was exquisite. Voice, performance, banter ... it all hit the mark. And to enjoy it in such a wonderful setting ... well, let's just say I pity those of you who missed it.

  1. Ron Spencer and the entire staff of Theater on the Square embraced IndyFringe when it came to Mass Ave in 2005. TOTS was not only a venue but Ron and his friends created, presented and appeared in shows which embraced the 'spirit of the fringe'. He's weathered all the storms and kept smiling ... bon voyage and thank you.

  2. Not sure how many sushi restaurants are enough, but there are three that I know of in various parts of downtown proper and all are pretty good.

  3. First off, it's "moron," not "moran." 2nd, YOU don't get to vote on someone else's rights and freedoms that are guaranteed by the US Constitution. That's why this is not a state's rights issue...putting something like this to vote by, well, people like you who are quite clearly intellectually challenged isn't necessary since the 14th amendment has already decided the issue. Which is why Indiana's effort is a wasted one and a waste of money...and will be overturned just like this has in every other state.

  4. Rick, how does granting theright to marry to people choosing to marry same-sex partners harm the lives of those who choose not to? I cannot for the life of me see any harm to people who choose not to marry someone of the same sex. We understand your choice to take the parts of the bible literally in your life. That is fine but why force your religious beliefs on others? I'm hoping the judges do the right thing and declare the ban unconstitutional so all citizens of Wisconsin and Indiana have the same marriage rights and that those who chose someone of the same sex do not have less rights than others.

  5. No one is complaining about these jobs coming to Indianapolis. We are complaining about the need to subsidize these low wage jobs. Why do you never hear a peep from republicans and tea partiers about this type of welfare? We should only be subsidizing high wage, high skilled jobs.
