THINGS TO DO (6/14 – 6/15)

Big FunHere is the most recent installment of Evan Finch's occasional Things to Do for People Who Do Things email newsletter.

Independent Music + Art Festival
Harrison Center for the Arts
Saturday, June 14

The Independent Music + Art Festival is held in the courtyard of the Harrison Center (which is just a little south of the Redeemer church at 16th and Delaware). The IMAF is a free, day-long outdoor festival featuring visual artists and local musicians, such as: Mudkids, Highway Magic, Mandy Marie, HenriHenrietta, Everything Now, Missing Six, The Impossible Shapes, State, Mardelay, and a bunch more bands whose names I don’t have the energy to type this early in the morning. The first band (Mudkids) starts at 11 AM, and the last band (Mardelay) starts at 8:45 PM. Did I mention it’s very, very near the Talbot Street Art Fair?

Talbot Street Art Fair
Harrison Center for the Arts
Saturday, June 14 – Sunday, June 15

If you’re going to attend just one major art fair in Indianapolis, this is probably the one to go to — mostly because this one’s free. Talbot Street Art Fair is held on Talbot Street (natch) between 16th Street and 19th Streets. It’s held from 10 AM to 6 PM on Saturday, and from 10 AM to 5 PM on Sunday. Did I mention it’s very, very near the Independent Music + Art Festival?

LonPaul Ellrich Memorial/Rupert Ellrich Benefit
Fountain Square (Second Story and Radio Radio)
Sunday, June 15

On May 7, longtime local musician LonPaul Ellrich passed away. This coming Sunday, Musical Family Tree (http://www.musicalfamilytree.net) is sponsoring a multi-band tribute to LonPaul, with all proceeds going to benefit his young son, Rupert. Things will kick off with an all-ages acoustic show at Second Story (1043 Virginia Avenue, Suite 4), featuring performances by Richard Edwards, Kenny Childers, Chris Kupersmith, Sophia Travis and Marty Green. Following that, Radio Radio (1119 East Prospect Street) will host an over-21 show with performances by Margot And The Nuclear So And Sos, Pravada, the Zero Boys, Marmoset, the Vulgar Boatmen, Lines Of Nazca, Uvula, The Humans, PJ Christie and Vess Ruhtenberg.

Second Story will open its doors at 4:30 PM, with music running from 5 PM ’til 7 PM. Radio Radio will open its doors at 7:30 PM, with music going from 8 PM till midnight. It looks like the all-ages show is accepting donations at the door (I’m not sure how much they’re asking, but I’d bring $15 just in case.) Tickets to the Radio Radio are definitely $15, and may be purchased at the door — or in advance, from MusicalFamilyTree.net:

Just scroll down until you see the clickable link reading “Buy A Ticket.” I’m guessing that the “in advance” option might be a safer bet than the “at the door” option, since this event could sell out. Your tickets will be kept at Radio Radio’s “will call” window (and MFT suggests that you bring your printed receipt with you to the door).

Finally, if you’d like to read some memories of LonPaul, you can find 138 of them here:
