Welcome to another installment all the Friday Round Up! Here are what the cool kids will be doing in Indy this weekend!
Free First Friday Performance by KO: This is in tandem with FIRST FRIDAY which is also cool and awesome and FREE! (Info here). But KO aka Kristin Newborn, formerly of Slothpop fame, will be doing a free performance in the Do317.com Lounge (previously Big Car Gallery) in the Murphy Building. If you do anything this weekend, come to this free concert. KO is an incredibly talented singer, songwriter basically talented everything. Her voice is like a soulful, ethereal, folky love potion that will turn the world rosy. I promise. Also, I’ll be there, with a Wagon, of course.
Black Acre Brewery Co.: This is a shameless plug, but some special people I know over at Black Acre are having a Hog Roast tomorrow from Noon- 4pm. Tickets are $30 a person, a lot I know, BUT you get to eat some delicious hog, that’s been fed super special Black Acre spent grain and eat as many sides as your heart desires, PLUS you get two beers. Think of it as a more expensive Golden Corral, only much better food, and beer, and none of those weirdos that frequent buffets. Tickets here!
Jukebox the Ghost at Earth House: Jukebox the Ghost is a super cool band that is riding the indie-pop-coolio wave. They’ve been on tour with Guster, Ben Folds, Jack’s Mannequin, etc and are on the way up and up. This is one of those “catch em while they still play shows that are <$20” things. Tickets are $15 AND it’s all ages AND it’s at the one of the most wonderful venues in town, the Earth House.
Ratzfest: Indie jams with Jukebox the Ghost not your style? No problemo. Head on over to Local’s Only for some FREE local music with Oreo Jones, Humans, th’empires, Button Hoof and Laura K Balke. This “fest” is 21+ but it’s a good collection of various artists and Oreo Jones has some good rhymes. Also Locals Only is kinda an Indy hidden gem, that sadly won’t be around for much longer.
That’s all folks!
