Anyone else spend Sunday, September 1st riding the Red Line from end to end? I did! I'm so excited for being able to hop on and arrive in front of The Vogue and ride home from enjoying Broad Ripple restaurants, shopping, and music without worrying about parking and such. The Red Line is free for the whole month of September, check it out.
Since I mentioned The Vogue, they have some pretty great shows coming up.
Robert Randolph & The Family Band

The Vogue Theatre
6259 College Ave
21+, doors 7pm, show 8pm
$25 adv., $30 day of show
Robert Randolph & The Family Band (the core of them are family) are known for their funk and rock sensibilities. Robert and the band just released an album that reaches back to his church music beginnings while staying true to his funk roots.
I'm sure it will be fabulous!

I love how The Vogue is honoring their movie house roots by screening movies.
I can't tell you how many times Brenda Rising-Moore has seen the film Bohemian Rhapsody, but I'm pretty sure it's in the double digits. I was lucky enough to see it with her last winter. I loved it then, and it's time for me to see it again.
Bohemian Rhapsody celebrates the music of Queen and their singer Freddie Mercury. The movie takes us though their meteoric rise of the band and challenges of Freddie pursuing a solo career and his health issues and reconciliation. Of course there is music, lots of glorious music.
The Vogue has partnered with Condado Tacos for this event.
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.
