Indianapolis Music Scene?? Introduction
So I have decided that it would be a good idea to get to know the city I live in and try to document its local music scene. After all there is more to Indianapolis than sports and rednecks, not a lot more, but some. Now the heart of the music scene in Indianapolis is a place called Broad Ripple Village which is located to the north of downtown Indianapolis. This place has everything from good quality record stores, to bars with live music, to pretty small venues. However, in order to truly experience Broad Ripple one must be over 21 or have a really good fake. Otherwise you are basically limited to visiting the record stores for in-store performances. Broad Ripple also has a good selection of small restaurants and boutique shoppes. Today the annual Broad Ripple Music Festival kicked off with local heroes Margot and the Nuclear So & So's playing a free acoustic all-ages show at local record store Indy CD and Vinyl after which they would play at local 21+ venue The Vogue located across the street. Tomorrow the music will continue at various different locations, and so will my post.
