A “soft” opening is the time between a place accepting customers and its official grand opening. Downtown Indy’s latest attraction is in that period right now, as the Rhythm! Discovery Center fine-tunes its operation.

But, in this case, “soft” is the last thing you should expect. Created by the Indy-based Percussive Arts Society, the largely hands-on, 15,000-square-foot activity center could become the loudest attraction this side of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The official grand opening—including an appearance by Death Cab for Cutie drummer Jason McGerr—will be Nov. 21, but expect crowds this week thanks to the throngs in town for the Bands of America Grand Nationals (see item, below).

  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.
