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). For details, click here.
