  • Volunteers hand out energy bars during the 2014 Monumental Marathon

1. Indianapolis Monumental Marathon

Nov. 7, times vary. Heading into its 8th year the Indianapolis Monumental Marathon is Indiana's largest and fastest marathon. Starting and finishing on the grounds of the Indiana State Capitol, this flat and fast course highlights landmarks and historical neighborhoods throughout Indianapolis. There's also a half marathon, 5K and fun run.

2 Jeff Foxworthy, Larry the Cable Guy

Nov. 6, 7 p.m. Funny guys Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy unite on this combo tour. Each comedian will give their own performance before they take the stage together for an encore.

3. Colts vs. Broncos

Nov. 8, 4:25 p.m. Fresh off the firing of OC Pep Hamilton, the Colts welcome a familiar face to town. Remember when the Colts beat Denver in the playoffs? Yeah, so does Peyton Manning. Even though it’s a short week for the Colts, this is a home game for the ‘Shoe, and the novelty of “welcome back, No. 18” should be pretty well worn by now. Yeah, we love that guy with the hospital named after him, but leave your Manning jerseys at home, folks.

4. Axis Dance Company

Nov. 6, 8 p.m. One of the world’s most acclaimed and innovative ensembles, AXIS Dance Company forever changes the way you think about the limits of the human body. The company of five dancers—with and without disabilities—challenges the possibilities of movement, expanding and enriching the art form itself.

5. Stevie Wonder

Nov. 7, 8 p.m. Here’s what Stevie’s been playing at shows lately: “Love’s IN Need of Love Today,” “Sir Duke,” “Isn’t She Lovely,” “if It’s Magic,” “An Overjoyed/Yesterday/People Get Ready” instrumental medley, a cover of Nelly’s “Hot In Herre” (ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?), a cover of McFadden and Whitehead’s “Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now,” plus “Superstition.” Have we talked you into dropping a wad of cash for this show yet?

6. Everything Is Terrible! Legends

Nov. 8, 8 p.m. Everything Is Terrible! will visit The Hi-Fi for a live presentation of their latest movie, Legends. A “best of” collection of sorts, Legends is a culmination of the group’s seven-year career.

7. Peelander-Z

Nov. 7, 9 p.m. Japanese punkers Peelander-Z are based in NYC, in real life. In stage life, though, they’re from the planet Peelander, where members Peelander-Yellow, Peelander-Red and Peelander-Blue learned professional wrestling, costume design and all the other various and sundry activities and accoutrements that accompany their insane stage show.

8. The Art Dealer

Nov. 7, 7 p.m. This compelling French drama follows a Jewish woman as she embarks on an emotional quest to recover family paintings stolen by the Nazis in the midst of World War II. In the process, she discovers that some family secrets are best left hidden.

9. Hen, Sir Deja Doog

Nov. 7, 6 p.m. A big-ass hug and welcome back to the performing stage for Sir Deja Doog. Our spooky pal takes the stage just a week after recording his brand new EP at Postal Recordings in Downtown Indy, a spiritual sequel to his last release Love Coffin. Also taking the stage: Hen, Indy’s wildest and weirdest dance punk performance duo.

10. Everclear: Sparkle & Fade 20th Anniversary

Nov. 7, 8 p.m. Y’all ‘90s kids remember this: last episode of Full House on TV, the Oklahoma City bombing, Toy Story opening in theaters, Calvin and Hobbes ending, Everclear’s “Santa Monica” on the radio. Relive it all here! (Okay maybe not any of those things EXCEPT Everclear’s Sparkle and Fade album.)
