Happy New Year, darling folks. I hope everyone has gently eased into the new year rested and happy. Do anyone of you make resolutions? I have a theme each year. For 2019 I intended to "use what I've got." Let's see where that takes me.
Part of using what I've got is taking advantage of all of the wonderful opportunities to be inspired by the beautiful music and art and such in our community. I'll do my best to share those opportunities with you.

This is the ninth annual Year in Review quiz night at the Broad Ripple Brewpub. Sharpen your brain and your pencil, grab some friends, and think up a fun team name. Or be like me and worm your way in to a table of people that look like they know stuff.
Prizes are given for the two top team scores, best team name, and best wrong answer.
As always, delicious food and beverages will be available.

The Historic Melody Inn
3826 N. Illinois Street - 21+, $5, 7:00 doors, 8:00 show
Good golly, what a great lineup this is. Seriously.
The band, Howard, is chock full of talented Matts: Mays, Salsbery, and Wilson. Plus the two equally as talented men not named Matt; Will Barnart and Leroy. They are influenced by the Grateful Dead and play a whole bunch of original tunes.
Brian Deer & The Achievers is led by the wildly talented, Brian Deer. Expect smart, energetic songs and big fun.
Mina & The Wondrous Flying Machine, led by the talented Mina Keohane, is a piano-driven band that plays a mixture of original songs, jazz, and rock, backed by horns and fun.
Not-for-profit director by day, music writer by night, Nora Spitznogle reviews music that happened and previews music and events around Broad Ripple Village. Nora managed CATH Inc coffeehouse at 54th Street and College Avenue for seven years. During that time she hosted hundreds of local and touring musicians, both at the coffeehouse and her home. When CATH closed in 2004 and the music was no longer coming to her, she had to wander from her corner of Broad Ripple to see what is happening elsewhere. You can find her at Second Helpings during the work day, waitressing at the Red Key on Saturday nights and prowling Broad Ripple music venues the rest of the time.
