In the previous blog, I listed the upcoming schedule for the Clowes Presents series. Well, Clowes Hall isn't our town's only presenter of across-the-arts-spectrum one-night-only touring talent.

Here are the 2008-2009 shows coming to town courtesy of the Pike Performing Arts Center and the Warren Performing Arts Center.

Anything catch your eye?

At Pike:
“An Evening with Lucille Ball” (Sept. 27)
Quartetto Gelato (Oct. 26)
Sam Harris (Nov. 29)
John Mueller’s “The Winter Dance Party” recreating the final concert by Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper (Jan. 17)
Body Vox (Feb. 28)
Riders in the Sky (April 18)

At Warren:
Irving Berlin’s “I Love a Piano” (Sept 21)
Adam Pascal (Oct. 11)
The Smothers Brothers (Nov. 15)
National Public Radio's “From the Top” (Dec. 6)
Purdue Varsity Glee Club (Jan. 18)
Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder (May 2)
  • Wow. I never knew there were so many dead people still on the touring show circuit. Lucille Ball, Irving Berlin, Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, the Big Bopper, the Smothers brothers . . .They must all have really good agents to be able to book shows from beyond the grave.

    What's that? Oh, the Smothers brothers are still alive?
  • Well, Brian, it worked for Elvis. He can perform all over the world on the same day now that he's dead.

  1. I am so impressed that the smoking ban FAILED in Kokomo! I might just move to your Awesome city!

  2. way to much breweries being built in indianapolis. its going to be saturated market, if not already. when is enough, enough??

  3. This house is a reminder of Hamilton County history. Its position near the interstate is significant to remember what Hamilton County was before the SUPERBROKERs, Navients, commercial parks, sprawling vinyl villages, and acres of concrete retail showed up. What's truly Wasteful is not reusing a structure that could still be useful. History isn't confined to parks and books.

  4. To compare Connor Prairie or the Zoo to a random old house is a big ridiculous. If it were any where near the level of significance there wouldn't be a major funding gap. Put a big billboard on I-69 funded by the tourism board for people to come visit this old house, and I doubt there would be any takers, since other than age there is no significance whatsoever. Clearly the tax payers of Fishers don't have a significant interest in this project, so PLEASE DON'T USE OUR VALUABLE MONEY. Government money is finite and needs to be utilized for the most efficient and productive purposes. This is far from that.

  5. I only tried it 2x and didn't think much of it both times. With the new apts plus a couple other of new developments on Guilford, I am surprised it didn't get more business. Plus you have a couple of subdivisions across the street from it. I hope Upland can keep it going. Good beer and food plus a neat environment and outdoor seating.
