2. Indy Burger Battle

3. Gwen Stefani

July 31, 7 p.m. Her Lady of Bright Red Lipstick is touring This Is What The Truth Feels Like — and she’s bringing Eve on all her stops. This will be 100 percent better than Stefani’s time on The Voice — and The Voice is pretty damn good.

4. Streamlines Poetry Workshop

July 30, 11:30 a.m. This workshop will look at poets - past and present - who have used Indy as a catalyst for their work. Participants will then generate their own poems that address the city in all of its different curiosities.

Tube Factory artspace, 1125 Cruft St., FREE, all-ages

5. Movies on the Lawn: Beasts of the Southern Wild

July 30, 9 p.m. When her father falls ill, a young girl named Hushpuppy (Quvenzhané Wallis, the youngest Best Actress nominee in history) leaves her crumbling bayou community in search of her long-lost mother. Along the way, she encounters prehistoric beasts and otherworldly landscapes. Bring lawn chairs and blankets and enjoy this movie under the stars when this film plays behind the Garfield Park Arts Center as part of Indy Parks’ Movies on the Lawn series. — Sam Watermmeier

7. Middle Coast Film Festival

July 29-30, times vary. Bloomington’s first interactive film festival provides screenings of anticipated films — international, national short and feature — at four separate venues in the city.

Prices vary, all-ages.

8. Poké Singles Meet Up

July 29, 8 p.m. Can you tell I'm slowly becoming addicted to this Pokemon Go game? Can you tell I'm single? Forget my rambling, this meetup should be fun for all you single Pokemon trainers out there.

White River Canal, FREE, 18+ suggested

9. Twenty One Pilots

July 31, 7 p.m. My boss doesn't like Twenty One Pilots. I do. Think she'll read this? Let's find out.

Bankers Life Fieldhouse, 125 S Pennsylvania St., prices vary, all-ages

10. Summer Landscape

July 29. This was one of the Harrison’s best shows this year. Curated by Nathan Foxton, Summer Landscape features work that stretches the boundary of plein air painting so far that it almost breaks. It features work by painters both familiar and new to the walls of this art center: it features urban, rural and fantastical landscapes in varying degrees of abstraction. Great paintings by Kelsey Blacklock, Quentin Crockett and Carla Knopp — among others — are on view.

Harrison Center for the Arts, 1505 N Delaware St., FREE, all-ages
