I feel genuine pity for anyone who had to miss Friday night’s show at the White Rabbit Cabaret in Fountain Square.
The hardest working folks in show business (at least in Indianapolis), My Old Kentucky Blog, scored an appearance from the MarchFourth Marching Band. A traveling marching band/burlesque/cabaret/sideshow from Portland, OR, MarchFourth play original music and a few covers in marching band style–similar to Brooklyn’s Mucca Pazza.
They delighted a packed house with two sets, after marching through the Murphy Building at First Friday. In fact, many folks came down the street to the show as a result.
It’s somewhat vindicating to see people enjoying a show by people who–like me–used to get called “band fags” and “band geeks.” Now they see how hard band geeks can rock.
